How campaign fashion is setting a precedent for your office wardrobe

The Presidential campaign is in full swing and the nation’s eyes are fixed on Obama vs Romney. However, it’s not just the men in the race that are getting all of the attention. Ann Romney and Michelle Obama have been in the limelight and their fashion choices are not going unnoticed.

Fashion on the campaign carpet

Michelle Obama has long been known for her tasteful and fashion forward wardrobe choices. She has the ability to find pieces at Target and make them look like a thousand bucks. At the same time, she’s able to wear something that is a thousand bucks and make it relatable to every woman in America. The public loves her and she’s managed to create a brand all her own through her wardrobe choices.

Ann Romney is managing to not look like a typical Stepford housewife. She is staying on top of fashion and doing a great job of mixing designer and non-brand name clothing, showing her flexibility.

Using their examples for our office wardrobe

Both women have shown that a classy wardrobe doesn’t have to just consist of pencil skirts and button-ups. We need to keep this in mind when finding pieces to add to our work wardrobe.

These women are in the news everyday and are photographed in what they are wearing on a daily basis. However, they are willing to mix and match parts of their wardrobe to create new outfits from old pieces of clothing they have had for years. They are also not afraid of color or trying out a new style.

Here are some tips inspired by these women that can help you look like a leading lady:

  • Use color. Don’t go crazy, but don’t be afraid of a bright pair of heels or colored pants.
  • Keep it classy. Keep your skirts knee-length and the straps on your dress at 2 inches wide. There’s a lot you can do with just those two rules.
  • Stick to your own style. Both of these women have found their “groove.” They know what works for them and find pieces they can add as part of a collection.

It’s always good to find women that are able to be fashion icons in the business world. Ann Romney and Michelle Obama do a great job.
