Paging Michelle & Ann: We've Got Your Dream Campaign Wardrobes

The personal style of the First Lady has fascinated the world for centuries — from Jackie O's sunnies, to Nancy Reagan's bow blouses, to Michelle Obama's midi skirts, every outfit that a president's wife dons says something about her, our culture, and the economy. And given that we're facing what is sure to be a close presidential race, our collective eye is focusing in on current First Lady Michelle Obama and her potential replacement, Ann Romney.
Now, this should go without saying, but we love when an accomplished, smart, and elegant woman has a knack for style, too. So, we've been keeping an eye on what Michelle Obama and Ann Romney have sported in recent months, and gathered plenty of real-life, real-woman style advice from their best looks. In the process, we found a few closet conundrums, too — don't worry, ladies, we've got fixes for those. The result? A pitch-perfect fashion prescription, tailored to Michelle's and Ann's unique styles, to ensure a chic and sophisticated trail to the White House.
