She has dazzled us before with her unique fashion sense and she has done it again during her week-long trip to South Africa - this time in affordable outfits.

The First Lady arrived in Pretoria in a Duro Olowu designed printed jacket. Although Michelle has also been spotted many times in high-end designer creations and couture wear like Alexander McQueen, Jason Wu and Roksanda Ilincic; she has also given her approval to a number of affordable brands as well.

In fact, being a style icon, her wardrobe features an eclectic mixture of luxe creations and mass appeal designs. Among her favorite affordable stores are Target, J.Crew and H&M.

A new affordable look that the First Lady gave during her South-Africa tour was a printed sleeveless bouse by ASOS Africa. She paired the top with matching flared trousers and cherry red pumps while visiting children at the Emthonjeni Community Centre in Zandspruit Township.
