Michelle Obama wears a striped Tracy Reese sweater for a bit of French Chic style
I’ll Have What She’s Having: Michelle Obama Plays With A Twist On A Classic In Chicago For A Cause
We’ve been a lull on our Michelle Obama style watch for a while, but this striped Tracey Reese sweater got our fashion engine going again for some can-do, every day style chic.
While in Chicago yesterday to promote healthy eating initiatives in low-income areas, style maven Michelle Obama radiated a cool playfulness in a classic ivory and black striped sweater from Tracy Reese that featured an asymmetrical key-hole cut-out and an unexpected bow at the neckline.

We love the fact that the classic elements of Reese’s striped pullover keep Obama looking appropriate and put together while the graphic twist of the neckline keeps it fresh with a Parisian inspired, French chic insouciance.
It’s one of those tops anyone can throw on for just about anything and look instantly manicured in while standing out from the crowd. And coming from experts on can-do chic like the crew here at FoS, we couldn’t think of an easier essential to add into your daily routine like Reese’s striped bow sweater. -Naveed Hussain
