Today marks the anniversary of a journey that began 20 years ago for Barack and Michelle Obama: their wedding anniversary! As we have grown to love the happy couple, the two have grown to love each other more and more right before our eyes — in style at that!
Despite the political headlines that have both praised and plagued their time in office, the Chicago natives have always set a high standard for what love and family should look like.
From Michelle’s full skirts to Barack to tailored suits, check out their sweetest style moments ever.
Even 20 years down the road, Michelle and Barack Obama can’t seem to keep their hands off of each other! The two held hands for much of their recent appearance on ABC’s The View. But then again, who wouldn’t want to hold on to Michelle in that bold emerald green ’50s reminiscent dress or Barack in that sleek black suit with the perfect polka dot tie? We wouldn’t!

The Obamas represented their country during a visit to the UK showing reverence to their flag in impeccable outfits. The President’s tailored suit was accented with a sweet American flag pinned over his heart, and the First Lady’s flowy dress blew in the London wind.

“On Oct. 3, 1992, Barack and I were married in Chicago — and every day since, I’ve grown prouder and more in love with him,” Michelle Obama tells PopSugar. Here, we get a close up of the lucky lady’s 20-year-old ring. Simple and elegant just as she would have any other accessory. Well done, Mr. President!
“Michelle is one of the smartest people I know. She is my chief counsel and advisor,” Barack Obama told Ladies’ Home Journal just before he was elected President, and we think it’s safe to say that the statement still holds true. PDA is always tasteful between the two. Black Love at its finest!

The President keeps his look fresh and clean in a blue and white striped top and a pair of casual khakis. His most fashionable accessory: Mrs. O! Michelle has mastered the art of color blocking and proves it in this green and yellow empire waist dress.

Nothing says nautical nirvana like the First Family in red, white and blue. Michelle rocked red and blue stripes with white trousers and Barack in a navy polo. Leave it to these two to make color-coordinated outfits work!

By day, the happy couple is all smiles in two all-American belted ensembles. The President in a crop white top with the Mrs. at his side in a red and white ASOS checkered frock. By night, the two cozy up sweaters—and each other’s arms for some additional warmth of course. Too cute!
Sorry, Mr. President but we’re going to need a moment to give the floor to Mrs. O. The First Lady has stayed true to her personal style in A-line silhouettes that flatter her figure, feminine floral prints, comfy flats and minimal accessories for an overall ladylike look.
StyleBlazers, please join us in wishing the President and First Lady a very happy anniversary!
