Politics aside, it’s impossible not to appreciate Michelle Obama’s fabulous style. Critics and citizens alike have praised the First Lady’s fashion choices from the very beginning of the Obama reign and it’s easy to see why. With an eye for complementary patterns, attractive cuts, and elegant style, Michelle’s style is an All-American joy. But perhaps her greatest triumph is her jewelry. From dangling necklaces to simple cuffs, Barack’s wife never fails to dazzle the crowd with her jewelry choices, and a large part of that is due to her flawless choices. Snag a lesson from America’s very own First Lady and follow these simple rules to effortlessly recreate Michelle’s stunning jewelry.
1) Flower Brooch
Brooches are often overlooked as jewelry accessories, but when it comes to elegance, there is no finer choice. Pairing a sparkling flower brooch with numerous different outfits, the First Lady has made it clear that floral is a must. For an understated look, brooches can be pinned to jacket lapels, and although the First Lady partakes in this tradition, she also creates a signature look: brooches and dresses. Pinned to the strap of a simple daytime dress, a brooch adds extra sparkle and effortlessly conveys personal style. However, Michelle wears brooches at the dress’s center. When a dress has a V-neck cut, a centered brooch streamlines the look and adds understated sparkle. The First Lady is never scared to experiment with different colors and has flower brooches that range from green to blue and pink to red. Add a modern twist to Michelle’s floral brooch by opting for the award-winning Pixie Pea Pod Pendant.
2) Black Gemstones
Nothing demands respect quite like the color black. America’s First Lady recognizes the importance of color symbolism by opting for black gemstone jewelry. From dangling earrings to gemstone-encrusted bracelets, the First Lady utilizes this power color. Next time you choose black gemstones, remember that you’re following in the footsteps of political royalty. Ready to try something new? Check out the Switchback Onyx Earrings.
