Now that we’ve all seen how the Obama girls do full black tie glamour at a State Dinner (so, like, the White House version of prom) it only stands to reason they’re also delivering a healthy dose of style inspiration while in Cuba (which is the White House version of spring break). The First Daughters toured the country with their parents Sunday, conveniently showing us how to wear every spring trend you’ll want to try at the same time.

Though it was a pretty dreary day when the Obamas marked the first official U.S. visit to Cuba since 1928, Malia and Sasha didn’t let that dampen their choice in spring break apparel. Sasha, 14, wore a simple Shoshanna sheath dress with just a touch of white embellishment at the neckline and down the sides, paired with a pendant choker and black platform sneakers.

Malia, going for something a little more colorful and seasonally apropos, wore a $48 floral skater dress from Asos, which features a contrasting overlay with full sleeves that gives the illusion of a layered dress and crop top combo. And like her little sister, Malia, 17, went for the very on-trend pairing of wearing a flirty dress with sneakers, though hers were a pair of supermodel-approved white lace-ups.

Of course, their mother Michelle was no slouch in the style department either. She stepped off the plane in a Carolina Herrera A-line dress with a dotted floral print, though she skipped the teen-friendly sneaks for a pair of Jimmy Choo slingback flats.
