In recent times, no one has redefined fashion more than the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama. Be it the classy chic or the elegant ladylike, the FLOTUS has rocked every look with grace and confidence. Her sartorial decisions have always been a source of inspiration for many in the fashion world. Immaculate and classy, her style is approachable and at times affordable. Mrs. O. stays in line with the latest trends and remains poised and graceful. Let's check out how she rocks some of the latest trends in her recent public appearances.

On trend colorblock dress to the Late Show with David Letterman

While the FLOTUS anecdote about her dad at the "The Late Show with David Letterman" touched a chord with several, her immaculate style left the fashion world drooling. Sporting a green, blue and white colorblock outfit from Preen Pre-Fall 2012 collection, she was on trend with a subdued hint of peplum detail and belted waist. Her exclusive ensemble was accessorized with a sparkling brooch.

The casual Mrs. O. at the Let's Move Campaign

The first thing that meets the eye when it comes to Michelle Obama's fashion is that how real it is. She always has the perfect attire for every occasion.

Recently she hosted the fourth annual spring gardening event in accordance with her Let's Move campaign and befitting the sporty occasion, the FLOTUS was seen donning black capris, a pink printed top and a black cardigan. The pink was a perfect choice for a springy attire and the nonchalant look was put together with the cardigan. She uses accessories to step it up a notch and here she adds a fun element with blue shoes. How cute is that?

No one carries colors as naturally as Michelle Obama. We have seen her rocking bold shades of blues, purples, yellows and oranges on several occasion - yes, there's no denying that Mrs. O. does not shy away from hues.

Recently she bowled me over when she stepped out in a sleeveless Jason Wu deep blue gown that accentuated her curves and complemented her tone. The chic look was once again accessorized right by a pair of exotic Suzanna Dai drop earrings. The look is feminine yet not too over the top. Note, she keeps the look minimal and classy. Not to forget, she is right on trend with the bright bold hue.

The everyday fashion lover can take a cue from her when incorporating new trends. Don't be intimidated - there is always something for everyone that is new and trendy. Play with them with confidence until it becomes a part of your fashion statement.
