Style by the First Ladies of the United States

Today is Presidents’ Day in the United States. In honor of the national holiday, I put together a compilation on the many different styles of the First Ladies of the United States (FLOTUS, if you will). Hopefully, not too far from now, I (or someone else) will be able to compile a list of the styles of our Women Presidents.

It was fun to research this and just as I’d thought when I was putting it together, Jackie Kennedy is my favorite style icon among the FLOTUS. But, I think each of them had a unique style. Obviously, it was difficult to get more photos of the earlier FLOTUS, so it’s not really fair to judge from just a few. I guess we’ll just have to leave it up to our imaginations.
