We really don't mean to shock you, but Sasha Obama is now 18 years old! The youngest daughter of the former president celebrated her birthday on June 10, and aside from hitting some major milestones (She went to prom! Now she can vote!), she's also proving to have a pretty cool sense style. Looking at her latest outfits — pairing sneakers with sundresses, that must-have Reformation look — it hit us: not only is she wearing stuff we'd like to wear ourselves, she's also been dressing a bit like Michelle Obama.

This isn't really a new revelation. Throughout her life, Sasha has seemingly taken cues from her mom, stepping out in items that could have easily come from Michelle's closet. We obviously can't blame her: The former first lady is widely regarded as a fashion icon, and she's even inspired a few ensembles of our own.

As they say, the proof is in the pics, so we searched for a few times that Sasha dressed exactly like Michelle — and found 15 matchy-matchy examples. Not to worry, Sasha. Amal Clooney steals styling tricks from her mom, too!

While Sasha recently embraced the snakeskin trend, Michelle once wore a knee-length dress with a similar color scheme.

Some may prefer denim or leather, but Michelle and Sasha know this option is just as versatile. Perhaps they're taking fashion tips from Jennifer Aniston, who often wears similar styles.

Sure, Michelle's dress is meant for fancy occasions and Sasha's look is vacation-ready, but both managed to steal the spotlight with the help of metallics.

Even a few years ago, Sasha didn't mind matching her mom. They may have chosen different styles, but both knew this coat color was timeless.

And that style aesthetic was breezy, green(ish), printed dresses.

The secret to pulling off bold prints? Keeping the rest of your outfit simple and adding minimal accessories, as demonstrated by the mother-daughter duo.

With clean, summery patterns, too.

These looks — solid, structured, and tailored for that perfect fit  could be worn for years to come.

Yes, it's a daring color, but these two were up for the challenge. We also love how Sasha paired her dress with a matching cardigan.

It's an easy, breezy choice that works for everything from traveling to speaking engagements.

It's a go-to, no-fail color combo for a reason.

While Michelle paired her look with black slingbacks, Sasha went the more casual (and kid-friendly) route with blue flats.

The brooches, the silver shoes — seriously, if this matching moment wasn't planned, it's quite the coincidence.

Not only did these dresses pop because of the color, they included statement-making embroidery and prints, too.

These ladies know how to rock a power color, and we love how Sasha added a polka-dotted sweater for a little something extra.
