Malia and Sasha Obama’s Style Through the Years

Malia and Sasha Obama were just 8 and 11 when their dad, Barack Obama, was sworn is as the 44th president of the United States.

In eight years, the girls have grown into stylish teens, and we’ve gotten a front-row seat for some of their best moments as the sisters have developed their personal style. This year, Sasha and Malia have gone on several trips with the president and first lady Michelle Obama, giving them the chance to cater their style to the country they visited.

During a trip to Morocco with Michelle, the girls wore appropriately colorful printed dresses. Sasha wore hers with block-heel sandals and Malia opted for lace-up flats.

On a rainy day during the family’s trip to Cuba earlier this year, Malia opted for comfortable all-white sneakers.

On the topic of sneakers, both Malia and Sasha have shown a love for Converse Chuck Taylor All Star high-top sneakers, and they’ve even been wearing the brand since they were little girls.

Just like their mom Michelle, these two helped elevate first family fashion to the next level.

As for their future plans, Malia is currently on a gap year after graduating high school in 2016. She’ll start college this fall at Harvard University, where she’ll surely further develop her style outside of the public eye. Sasha, meanwhile, will continue living in Washington, D.C., with her parents as she finishes high school.
