GET THE LOOK: SASHA AND MALIA WRAP-UP THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION ON A HIGH NOTE IN HIGH-WAISTED SKIRTS
Last night was huge for the Obama family. The President received the approval of the people to serve another term and the Obama daughters officially stepped into the realm of fashion as fashion icons on the rise. The girls were impressively dressed in sophisticated yet age-appropriate high-waisted skirts. Sasha,11, wore a green waist high A-line skirt with a gray blouse that gathered in a huge bow at the chest. She completed the look with a gray short-sleeved cardigan and matching green and blue flats. Malia, on the other hand, wore a navy blue high-waisted silk skirt with a black three-quarter sleeve shirt and pink belt, which took the outfit to a new high. Both girls made looking amazing appear completely effortless.
Here’s how you can get the look with no sweat ! J. Crew has a navy blue skirt that is the same one worn by Malia. It retails for $225 and Forever21 has a great navy blue A-line skirt for about $18, that would achieve this look as well. If you’re going for Sasha’s green skirt, you are out of luck as the skirt is from New York designer Chris Benz’ 2010 collection. You can try this green skater skirt, which retails for about $40 or Revolve’s Peppermint Pattie skirt for $52.
Also, with the weather cooling off, don’t be afraid to wear these looks in the winter. Simply couple them with a pair of calf-high boots and you’ll be warm and stunning.
