This week on the blog we’ll be breaking down classic ‘American’ fashion… Beginning with former First Lady Jackie O. and concluding with current FLOTUS Michelle Obama, although their titles may have been updated from words to ‘abreevs’, the style represented by these women – as well as by Donna Karan and Diane Sawyer in between – has been cultivated according to the American individual. We encourage our readers to develop their own classic looks, during which time you just might find some of the same cuts, embellishments and/or fabrics in your current wardrobe. Enjoy mixing and matching trends from years past, trends most likely influenced by the women you see here!
