Michelle Obama: Beguiling in Bangles

Michelle ObamaFirst Lady Michelle Obama looked very pretty at a recent dinner honoring the German chancellor.

But what made this look a standout for me was not the Naeem Khan designer gown.

It was the bangles.

So tasteful! So elegant!


Mrs. O's bangles were by Alexis Bittar and probably averaged somewhere around $200 to $300 apiece.

But you can find similar ones for much less cash --

And you can wear them everywhere from church to a swanky cocktail party.

Want to see some lookalike bangles that FLOTUS would envy?

These brushed metal bangles (The Limited, $24.90 apiece) will give you the First Lady look for less.

Guess Or try adding this White and Gold Bangle Set (Guess, $28).


Macy'sSpend up without breaking the bank on this Kenneth Cole Hinged Bracelet (Macy's, $48).


Forever 21And I couldn't go without mentioning these pretty Black and White Affair Bangles (Forever 21, $7.80). Take out the black bangle and add in another large gold one or two and you totally have Mrs. O's look for much, much less!

I love bangles, and I love the one the first Lady is wearing and also her dress. I love all the bangles you are featuring too.

Very pretty! I do have to say, I really admire Michelle for her clean, classic, fresh style. I am not into fashion or anything, but she is really beautiful and carries herself so well... I admire her for usually choosing cheap alternatives that look great.

Kim, bangles at 200 a piece are not cheap alternatives. She did look beautiful with this dress and accesaries
