Presidential “It” Girl: Malia Obama’s Style

Malia Obama turned 14 this summer and you would never know it from her composure and grace in the media eye; in all the pictures taken of her she manages to refrain from expressions of teenage angst or boredom and beautifully carries an easy sense of teenage style.

Malia is tall and leggy and the dresses, flats and cropped pants that she wears suit her perfectly. The dresses she wears typically hit mid thigh and are a flattering and modest cut while still looking chic and youthful. She often pairs dresses with a cardigan in a thin fabric and a modestly toned, oversized bag.

The pieces she chooses are occasionally recognizable from popular teenage hot spots like H&M and Urban Outfitters, and she looks as comfortable in her church and event wear as she does casual wear. The color that pops up the most in her wardrobe seems to be a bright cheerful yellow! Her shoe choices have matured and the basic Converse and flats she donned are now often instead strappy sandals, a low boot or a flat with flourish.

This gathering of pictures reveals a sweet young woman who looks happy and comfortable with herself- the most stylish thing of all!
