First Lady Fashion: Bolero Plays Big Role

First Lady Michelle Obama is keeping the 1950s classic bolero an important, stylish piece to her White House wardrobe, once again this Fall.

Last  night, or should we say, actually around 1:30 this AM, Mrs. Obama walked out to thunderous applause wearing a Michael Kors sleeveless dress, and a simple, black bolero sweater.

We love the versatility and elegance of the bolero. It is flattering to most, covers up the arms if you don't care to show them, and focuses the attention on the face, bosom, and neck.

Bolero shrugs, jackets, and sweaters NEVER go out of style. Just give it a few days, and you will see boleros being purchased by the hundreds, because First lady Michelle's fashion sense is admired and copied by many.

You can find bolero sweaters just about everywhere. We found some:

L'Wren Scott Black Bolero, $895.

House of Frasier Shawl Collar Bolero, $48.

Alaia Cardigan, $1,025.

Wet Seal Eyelash Knit Bolero, $24.50, now 30% off).
