Your college years are all about exploration, so it’s only natural that Malia Obama would experiment with some new looks after leaving the White House. Malia obviously takes after her mother Michelle (who Vogue crowned a “fashion icon”) more so than her dad-jeans wearing father. Seventeen has praised Malia for her impeccable fashion sense, calling her “the ultimate style icon” for her “fashion forward” outfits, described with titles such as: “Double Denim,” “Laid-Back Athleisure,” and the too-cute “Schoolgirl With a Side of Hugs.”
Of course, any modern-style icon worth their weight in cool has to have a stellar sneaker collection. Footwear News paid her the ultimate compliment by doing a rundown on Malia’s kicks, noting her love for Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars, camel-colored Cat boots, and white K-Swiss high-tops.
According to Harper’s Bazaar, Malia has also experimented with braids while attending Harvard, departing from her “signature straight-wavy style.” Stylecaster also gave her props in 2018, describing her “half-up, half-down hairstyle” as “badass.”
