Whether rocking a $78 Nasty Gal dres or designer gown, Malia's style is casual cool and ever so chic.

Malia has a serious collection of gowns. Earlier this year, she wore a Naeem Khan gown for a dinner in honor of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and First Lady Sophie Gregoire Trudeau of Canada

Malia loves her Chuck's as much as the rest of us.

Easy breezy is the name of the game.

Even in flight Malia is no short of fab. A lightweight crew neck and an A-line skirt makes stepping off Air Force One seem not so serious.

Forget sequins and frilly dresses for Christmas, Malia makes it a retro moment in a golden bell-sleeved dress layered with chains.

Malia made a bold move in a fun cobalt fit-and-flare at the DNC, past First Daughters have kept it pretty conservative.

Just like her mom, Malia knows how to re-work a look. Remember that cobalt blue number at the DNC? It re-appeared layered in black. Tres chic!

A cute J. Crew ensemble is enough to make any girl happy! But what's even cooler is how she pulls it all together with a chic tie of a belt.

Preppy cool is her thing. Malia masters the look in a school boy blazer, lightly spotted top, golden yellow shorts, a classic canvas tote (with leather handles!) complete with pop-colored ballet flats.

Malia's flowy blouse and soft curls make for an innocently romantic look. Love!

No daddy/daughter day would be complete without denim, for both Obamas. And, yes even the First Daughter wears a cropped top.

Even Malia's casual looks are cool. Here, the big sis sports a smock-style top, skinny jeans and ballet flats. Weekend casual-approved.

Things got funkier on a 2011 trip to Brazil! Malia is fab in a striped skirt and neon accents while her little sis is taking cool cues from her in a mixed print and ruffled outfit accessorized with piles of arm candy.

Malia's clearly a fan of mini skirts. The First Daughter keeps it pretty in a pussybow blouse with a tomboy touch: combat boots.

Now, here's a look we'd certainly steal for our closet: a navy pussybow blouse with poet sleeves, layered under a charcoal grey dress. Quite the chic color combo.

Malia definitely earns cool points for pairing tough biker boots with a pretty eyelet dress and formal blazer. Way to shake up things at the White House.

A sweet cornflower blue is how Malia keeps her cool. We adore her obsession with Mary Jane flats.

School girl-chic never goes out of style! A pleated skirt and knee-high socks make a sweet statemet for Malia.

Just like mom, Malia and Sasha know the importance of having a bold coat in your closet. More importantly, big sis Malia brings it full circle with an equally rich-colored scarf.

Malia was hip to navy blue before it was the hottest hue. At the White House Easter Service in 2012 she balanced her mom's metallic dress with a classic monotone-style topped with a matching blazer and nude flats.
