In four short years, Michelle Obama has managed to take First Lady fashion to a whole new level and transform herself into a style icon in the process. The current FLOTUS is best known for her fresh, colorful, modern style and bold yet accessible fashion choices. (After all, any lady who can make J.Crew inauguration-appropriate gets our vote.) And given her hectic schedule, it’s important to be able to take that enviable wardrobe on the go. Which is where this classic, streamlined luggage comes in handy – great for a woman on the go and clearly coordinated in Michelle’s most-flattering color. You may not have her wardrobe, but that doesn’t mean you can’t travel in style.

No one does First Lady style quite like Jackie Kennedy. With simple silhouettes, impeccable tailoring, and classic colors, Jackie O’s iconic style inspired a nation and defined a generation during her time in the White House and long after. Her elegant, refined, ladylike fashion choices made preppy New England style chic and modern all at once. Ready to emulate the queen of Camelot? Kick back and relax in this classic Cape-Cod style Adirondack chair and imagine you’re relaxing on a yacht off the coast of Hyannis Port or sunning yourself in the Kennedy compound. Just throw on a pair of Jackie-O shades and you’re good to go.

While Hillary Clinton’s early years in the White House tended to land her firmly in the fashion faux pas category (headbands and scrunchies, anyone?), these days, the former First Lady is putting a new spin on a power suit with her bright, bold use of color. With a career that spans from First Lady to Senator to Secretary of State, it’s no wonder Hillary has her political uniform down pat. And just as a power pantsuit in a bold, monochromatic color can make a statement, so can a bright pop of color in your home. These bold orange pillows will make as big an impact on your couch as Hillary’s pantsuits do in Washington.
