Seeking style inspiration for what to wear to all those upcoming holiday parties? Look no further than the super-stylish residents of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The Obama ladies totally nailed seasonal-chic attire during Sunday's taping of the annual Christmas in Washington TV special, which will air on TNT on Friday, December 20.

Sasha Obama wore a polished, textured floral dress, paired with bow-print tights and some shiny silver lace-ups. (The same ones she wore here — we adore.) We definitely wouldn't pass up the change to raid the youngest Obama's shoe collection — just sayin'.

MObama and Malia, on the other hand, put to rest any doubts you might have had about wearing winter white. Malia has clearly mastered the slouchy-sweater-plus-fancy-skirt combo, which is our new favorite go-to when we want to look comfy and cute. For her part, the first lady revisited one of her all-time best ensembles: a stylish J. Mendel dress she wore last July during the London Olympic Games. (For the record, we gushed about it then, too.) Repurposing this gorgeous dress for the winter was a pro move and we've got to admire her willingness to experiment with out-of-season styles. In fact, we might just dig through our warm-weather clothes to whip up some (totally unexpected) party looks. (The Gloss)
