Our forever First Lady Michelle Obama is trotting around the U.S. in celebration of her third book The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times, and she’s been doing it in style, too!

Throughout her buzzing book tour, fans have been reeling about Ms. Obama’s casually chic ensembles. Look no further than Tuesday, where the 58-year-old lawyer and author took to the Fox Theater stage in a multi colored Roksanda x Fila track jacket. The Chicago native paired the retro windbreaker with a light blue asymmetrical bodysuit and high waisted black slacks. She tied the look together with Stuart Weitzman booties and a braided half up half down hairdo.

The comfortable outfit was pulled together by Meredith Koop, Michelle’s personal stylist of over a decade. According to CNN, Koop started out as the former first lady’s assistant, and then gradually became her stylist in 2010.

On Instagram, Koop shared a few photos of the “Becoming” author looking fresh and fabulous in her fun ensemble.

“So good!” wrote one user in the comment section. While another fan commented, “Obsessed!”

During her 2021 interview with InStyle, Koop shared some of her essential tips for styling the beautiful Democrat.

“I’m always thinking through the different moments: what’s appropriate, what’s appropriate for the audience that’s going to be seeing her, what’s comfortable, and what’s going to look cool,” she said.

Ms. O’s impeccable fashion is just as compelling as her new book, which has now become a New York Time’s Best Seller. In the buzzing new memoir, the passionate author shares practical wisdom and powerful strategies for staying hopeful and balanced in today’s highly uncertain world. She also challenges readers to find healthy ways of coping with their anxiety and fears throughout troubling times.

A stylish leader and advocate? We love to see it! Here are a few more of our favorite looks from Michelle Obama’s busy book tour.
