President Obama Improves His Vacation Wardrobe, Thank Goodness (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

President Obama is one of the coolest presidents ever, but even he has his "dad fashion" moments. Case in point: last Christmas' memorable pleated-pants-and-turquoise-shirt mess, which might have been one of the frumpier outfits POTUS has ever worn.

But this year, we spied a definite improvement. President and Michelle Obama returned to Marine Corps Base Hawaii for their annual Christmas visit with service members and their families, and they both looked laid-back and relaxed. FLOTUS was in her signature holiday headband (it comes out every winter break), and POTUS tried another short-sleeve button-down shirt tucked into a pair of belted pants.

But this time, they were flat front pants. No pleats in sight. It's a Christmas miracle, folks.
