Walking Bo is even a fashionable fete. The Obama ladies sync up in purple and navy hues complete with fab coats, and Malia in a sweet pair of oxfords.

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.

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

Red was the color dujour during a visit to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping. Mrs. O lead by example in a scarlet stunner by East Asian designer Naeem Khan and her little ladies follow suit in rouge dresses/accents just the same.

A recent visit to church was undoubtedly a fashionable affair. A suede plum perforated Alaia dress with a matching jacket and thigh-high kitten boots was Michelle Obama's ensemble of choice, while Sasha sported a collarless coat in a matching shade with a sweet gold belted print dress.

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.

These little ladies know, if you're going to sport flats you should make it a fab pair. Take cues from the Obama girls and make it a playful pair, matching or not.

A night at the theater for the Riverdance Performance is the perfect occassion for the Obama ladies to get dressed up, Malia in some seriously chic layering: a button-down shirt and patterned top with a statement choker necklace and Sasha in a patterened blouse and sweet statement necklace of her own.

The first family kept it simple on this somber visit to the Halocaust Memorial over the summer: blouses (Mrs. O's, from Zara), skinny jeans, ballet flats and summer shades was the look of choice.

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

How fun is Sasha's bubble gum pink dress and turquoise flats? Together the mother-daughter duo pull together their look with stripes –– Sasha with a rainbow tote and the First Lady in a Narciso Rodriguez number.

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

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.

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.

Malia and Sasha made it a fashionable family portrait in 2011 by wearing a pair of dainty dresses — Malia in a sheer leaf print and Sasha in a fuchsia splatter print. How fab are they?

Just like their mom, the girls are dressed to impressed in bold frocks at the 2012 Democratic National Convention in North Carolina. Malia works a stark blue and Sasha shows her affinity for prints again in this little number.

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

These ladies exude casual cool even while picking up the family tree. Sasha is right on trend in an Aztec-print frock paired with polka dot tights, and Malia sports a colorblocked sweater, a pleated skirt and cool lace-up boots.

Frigid weather can't stop this fashionista! A bold blue double breasted pea coat style is the perfect remedy to fight the freeze.

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.

Sasha stuck to her sassy prints, a cardi and metallic flats — just like her mom's signature style.

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.

There go those fab coats again! Sasha is in a pretty Peter Pan collar-style with gold buttons and Malia in a cool arrow print piece as they head to Sunday service. Love it!

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

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.

These little ladies have an effortless sense of style. Malia works velvet skinnies with matching flats while little Sasha is layered up fabulously in shorts with plaid tights and a striped top. They're so fashion forward!

We can't decide which look we love more: Sasha in that bold blue, contrast lapel blazer and a pony print top or Malia in that polka dot dress. So Sweet!

Like mother, like daughter in a flared skirt, top and cardi—only Malia takes a playful turn in bold brights.

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.

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

Sasha's definitely following in her mom and sister's fashionable footsteps. This little one steals the shine in a red tuxedo blazer, pussybow blouse and bold blue trousers. Adorable!

The historic 2009 election night showed the First Family color coordinating at it's best! Sasha rocks an LBD to match her dad, and Malia's a lady in red just like her mom in Narcisso Rodriguez.
