She may gravitate toward pricy fashion — Prabal Gurung, Jason Wu, Thakoon and Azzedine Alaïa don’t come cheap — but First Lady Michelle Obama has figured out how to get more stylistic bang for her buck, opting for that tried-and-true working woman’s wardrobe trick: the re-wear. She’s proven deft use of belts, scarves, cardigans and brooches, donning some inexpensive numbers (a Talbots dress) and investment pieces (an Azzedine Alaïa belt, a Thakoon jacket) accessorized in different ways. Unlike certain starlets hitting the red carpet, the First Lady, apparently, is unafraid to wear the same thing twice.
