Purple was the Obama girls’s hue of choice for this year’s inaugural festivities. During Monday’s event, Malia, 14, bundled up in J.Crew‘s Double Cloth Lady Day Coat in fresh plum, a burgundy circle scarf and navy leather gloves, while Sasha, 11, wore a Kate Spade lavender wool coat with a matching scarf and gloves.
And while solemnly watching their father President Barack Obama get sworn in Sunday, Malia and little sister Sasha donned an H&M purple sleeveless pleated shift and the Plenty by Tracy Reese Mariposa lace dress in plum, respectively.

Although they were the picture of refinement (their mom is Michelle Obama!) for the latter part of the weekend, the first daughters had a little more fun with fashion at the 2013 Kids Inaugural Concert for military kids Friday night.
While on stage to present the evening’s performers (Katy Perry, Usher, Nick Cannon and more) with their mother — who was sporting new bangs — both girls opted for a cool sweater and circle mini skirt mix paired with boots.
