Essence Magazine Editor at Large, Mikki Taylor has just put out a book about how to manage a personal style like a First Lady. The book centers on Michelle Obama and how to achieve this political-chic style. If you buy the book, learn how Michelle shops at high and low price points, adds decorative punches with accessories and in the end creates a "bankable wardrobe"- classics that can be brought out on more than one occasion.

The book, which features more than 90 photos of Michelle Obama is called “Commander in Chic: Every Woman’s Guide to Managing Her Style Like a First Lady” and is retailing everywhere for $26.99.
