Melania Trump can be seen wearing pants in the featured photo above as Mrs. Trump stood next to President Donald Trump, who applauded as the first lady welcomed military mothers to the White House. On Friday, May 12, Melania chose the ensemble for the special Mother’s Day celebration in the East Room.
Fashion hounds have uncovered Melania’s pants as the Ralph Lauren Collection Iconic Ashley Wide-Leg Wool Sailor Pants. Leave it to White House Wardrobe to peg the pants as such. According to the Saks Fifth Avenue website, the pants Melania wore are selling out in certain sizes. The sizes of the “Midnight” color pants that are already sold out include 2, 4, and 14. The sizes 6, 8, 10, 12, and 16 are still available.
Photos of the pants from the Iconic Collection show the intricate details of the nautical-inspired pants in the front at the waist, as well as the back of the pants. They are described as pants with a flattering high rise and wide leg — a fact well-proven by photos of Melania like those below, walking in the flared and flowing pants down the halls of the White House.
The banded waist of the pants with their button closures and buttoned sailor bib are easier to view in close-up photos on retail websites, and slightly seen in photos of Melania donning the pants.
With Melania oftentimes photographed wearing a variety of dresses, it is a standout occasion when Mrs. Trump chooses to wear pants. When Melania does wear pants, she often seems to choose to wear pants that have a bell-bottom type of flare, as opposed to thin, cigarette style pants. These particular wool pants, with their waist welt pockets and unique lace-up gusset back, seem to be winning Melania praise once more for her fashion choices from her fans on social media. They are dry clean only and made in U.S., using Italian fabric.
On the Saks Fifth Avenue website, the model who is shown is 5’10” and wearing a size 4 version of the pants.
First Lady Melania Trump Pairs White Shoes With the Pants
To complete her ensemble, Melania paired a white shirt with white shoes with the wool Ralph Lauren pants, as seen in the photo below.
According to White House Wardrobe, the shoes seen above might be Dolce & Gabbana white Vernice pumps, and this wouldn’t be the first time Melania has chosen to wear Dolce & Gabbana. The 4.5-inch patent-leather heels come with designs on top, which are clear and ecru crystal embellishments. The slip-on pumps have an almond toe, and are also made in Italy.
With an $880 price, the shoes have been priced at $440 online.
