On the First Family's last day in Argentina, the Obamas made a pit stop in Bariloche, a city favored by tourists for its picturesque views of the Andes and Lake Nahuel Huapi. Upon their arrival, the group of four emerged in unusually practical outfits, showcasing the key to their Air Force One wardrobe: layer, layer, layer. 

Sasha opted for a fleece vest worn over a long-sleeve shirt while Malia chose a fleece jacket, flannel and T-shirt combination. Michelle, however, was the most stylish of the bunch. She wore a top that looks like it's made from a Lurex knit paired with an army-inspired jacket with cargo pockets. All four ladies doubled down on comfort with leggings and sneakers.

And in case you were curious, the President wore his best dad outfit, consisting of a zip-up jacket and khakis. Good look, dad. These ensembles were perfect for their day ahead of hiking through Bariloche's Nahuel Huapi National Park. Although they would also be great outfits for running errands, devouring an omelette at brunch and lurking the local dog park because, well, you don't own a dog but you wish you did, especially that French bulldog that refuses to socialize and instead sits on a bench next to its owner — impressively like a human.

I mean, what? For their return to the United States, the Obama ladies dressed up a bit more, Michelle choosing a printed dress from Tory Burch's fall 2016 collection, which only hit the runway last month.
