Since becoming First Lady, Melania Trump has found her style focus and quickly become a fashion icon.
There are a few things you can take to the bank when it comes to Melania’s dresses, pants, and gowns: She likes solids. She likes futuristic sleeves and necklines. She favors dresses. Some have even compared her simple monochrome elegance to Jackie Kennedy.
You aren’t likely to see Melania wearing busy patterns. She’s more likely to wear vibrant hues – hot pink, red – at Mar-a-Lago, the Trump’s vacation home in Florida. At the White House, she often chooses sedate hues, such as white or black. She likes American designers like Ralph Lauren and Michael Kors, and her dresses carry steep price tags ($9,500 for the glittery ensemble she wore to her husband’s speech to Congress alone.)
Here are some of the First Lady’s looks since assuming the role:
The First Lady often chooses vibrant colors when she travels to the Trumps’ Palm Beach vacation palace.

It’s rare to see Melania in slacks, but she wore them to the airport once as First Lady.

White House Looks
When Melania is doing official First Lady duties back at the White House, she often opts for suits or sheath dresses. Here are some of those looks:

You won’t see Melania much in casual attire. Pretty much the only time that happened in public since the inauguration? The Trumps’ Super Bowl party in Florida:

Speech to Congress
Melania wore a sparkling gown to her husband’s speech to Congress, which some critics called inappropriate for the occasion.
