Despite the raindrops, the first women of the White House brought sunny style along for their first official trip to Cuba. 

Clad in black, white and floral-print sundresses, First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha Obama, 14, and Malia Obama, 17, were a breath of fresh fashionable air as the family descended the steps of Air Force One on Sunday to take their historic first steps in the nation's colorful capital, Havana—the first of any presidential family in nearly nine decades. 

Their ensembles for the day were a far cry from that of former First Lady Grace Coolidge when she made the trip with former President Calvin Coolidge in 1928. Gone are the days of flapper-inspired drop waists and cloche hats—Michelle opted for a sleeveless white cocktail dress adorned with a cranberry and navy floral print designed by Venezuelan-born American designer Carolina Herrera.

The First Lady previously wore a power blue Herrera creation to welcome Pope Francis to D.C. in September.

Sasha took a fashion note from her famous mother and selected a black a-line sleeveless knit dress with white trim at the neck and down the waist by Shoshanna. The ensemble retails for $385. Rounding out the trio of springtime essentials, Malia sported a mixed floral dress with mid-length sleeves. 

If these teens couldn't get any cooler touring the city on their spring break, the sisters kept comfy in sneakers as they took in the sights of Old Havana. As for mom Michelle, she walked around the damp cobble streets in matching rose-colored flats. 

Come rain or shine, the three ladies kept their sleek tresses dry and picture-perfect under umbrellas. 

Just like that—on the first official day of spring, the trends have been set with one fell swoop.
