Weekend attire? President Barack Obama greets shoppers as he shops at the bookstore Politics and Prose in northwest Washington, D.C., on Nov. 30.

Well well, look who's looking suave these days.

President Barack Obama, accompanied by daughters Sasha and Malia, donned a brown leather jacket while visiting a bookstore in Washington, D.C., on Saturday. Along with jeans and a light sweater, the casual outfit marked a more laid-back, fashion-forward style for the leader of the free world.

President Barack Obama holds a bag of his book purchases after he and daughters Malia (R) and Sasha did some shopping at the independent bookstore Politics & Prose.

In the past, the president has called himself a "little frumpy" and, as Huffington Post pointed out, even admitted: "I hate to shop." (A common dad complaint.)

But it looks like he finally got into the swing of Black Friday and upped his style game. The family is in full sync now: Fashion icon Michelle Obama wore a black leather jacket this past month, while daughters Malia and Sasha are quickly becoming fashionistas in their own right.
