Here’s the Background Story:
People have compared Melania Trump to Jackie Kennedy Onasis since early 2017 when President Trump took office. Melania’s undeniable style and grace have earned her the spotlight in pop culture. So, many fashion experts naturally drew comparisons between her and other First Ladies for inspiration and to determine who has the best style.
Here Are the Contributing Factors:
Jackie O’s preference of pastels and taste for button-up jackets all but wrote the book for the modern FLOTUS dress style. She somehow perfectly embodied the image of the mid-1900’s woman with her attire. Naturally, other First Ladies emulated Jackie while adding their own flair for fashion.
Melania certainly draws inspiration from Jackie’s affinity for bold pastel colors. In particular, Melania’s choice to flaunt her iconic baby blue dress during Trump’s inauguration was a throwback to Jackie. But, the current FLOTUS has plenty of personal designer flair of her own.
Melania’s style ranges from simple, elegant, monochromatic outfits to elegantly patterned dresses. Aside from the traditional white and black hues in Melania’s apparel, her wide range of color choices include dark green, sun yellow and stark, bright red. She always seems to pick the perfect outfit to make a statement while seamlessly fitting in with world leaders.
All of these stylistic choices come before Melania’s decision to include (or not) accessories like hats and purses. Her choice in hats is especially eye-catching with her affinity for wide brims. She’s also commonly seen with sunglasses to compliment her attire.
That’s not to take anything away from the First Ladies succeeding Jackie O and their fashion preferences. For example, Rosalynn Carter and Laura Bush had their own unique sense of style and modesty while standing out in a crowd of leaders. Simple and elegant works for a reason, so there’s no need to abandon what’s tried and true.
