Fashion Discussion: The Fashion Legacy First Lady Michelle Obama Leaves Behind

As the tenure of the current sitting president comes to an end, I think it only befitting to stroll down memory lane. First Lady Michelle Obama has been just as visible as her president husband for her initiatives as well as her style! It is no question that she has become a fashion icon over the past eight years. She will go down in the books along with Jackie O as the most fashionable first ladies. Mrs. O made it okay to repeat outfits and accessories. Also, she showed her love for affordable retailers such as Target, J.Crew, White House Black Market along with high-end designers such as Tracey Reese, Christian Siriano, Thom Browne and Jason Wu. The New York Times did a lovely piece on the First Lady's 50 most memorable fashion moments. Of course, I plucked out my faves as well from the last eight years. Check them out below.
