The fashionable First Lady looked sleek and chic in her grey suit for the State of the Union address — but that wasn’t the first time we spotted this outfit! Julianna Margulies’ ‘Good Wife’ character, Alicia Florrick, was the first to rock the conservative chic number — but who wore it better?
Michelle Obama looked perfectly put together as she listened to her hubby, President Obama, as he delivered the State of the Union address on Jan. 20, where she showed off a grey tweed Michael Kors suit — and it looks like she took some style inspiration from Alicia Florrick, the fictional political wife and main character on The Good Wife!
Michelle Obama & Alicia Florrick In The Same Outfit:
Julianna’s character first donned the suit for a scene in court from season 5 of the hit CBS show — and given the distinct collar we’re not surprised Twitter erupted with images showing the similarity between the two looks. The look both ladies donned was the Michael Kors Origami Collar Tweed Jacket, which is currently on sale at Neiman Marcus for a cool $797, (quite the bargain compared to the original $1,595 price tag!).
Michelle Obama’s Michael Kors Jacket:
The fitted jacket features a zipper down the front and a portrait collar, which draws attention to the collarbone. The hint of skin keeps the look feminine and is quite unexpected, but works so well when juxtaposed against the tweed fabric. A matching tweed pencil skirt, complete with a zipper down the front, can round out the look, as could a grey tweed dress, (also by the designer).
Tweed jackets are totally having a moment this season — and you don’t have to be the wife of a politician to appreciate the look. While you could totally take inspo from Michelle and Alicia and sport tweed in a conservative, work-appropriate way, you could also rock a tweed jacket over jeans and a tee — throw on a statement necklace and you’re ready to go!
The fashionable First Lady always looks appropriate, stylish and chic — and her latest look was no exception. What do you think? Are you loving that Michelle took inspiration from The Good Wife? Who do you think rocked this Michael Kors jacket better?
