Here’s Why Melania Trump Wrote the Playbook on Airport Style

From LAX to JFK, the airport can be a sartorial minefield. Casual or Insta-ready? Flats or heels? And that burning question, whether anyone apart from Cara Delevingne can ever really look good in a pair of sweatpants.

So where to turn for the playbook on airport style? Melania Trump, of course. The fact that the former model landed by private jet at Andrews Airforce Base is neither here nor there. It’s the look that counts.

The First Lady returned to the White House last night following a seven-day tour of Europe with husband President Donald Trump.

The 48-year-old kept it casual in jeans and a shirt. The jeans were slim-fitting and came in a dark navy, while the shirt was white, fitted and super-crisp. She wore it buttoned up to the neck but with the sleeves rolled up just above the elbow. The overall effect was the perfect combination of off-duty and businesslike.

When it came to her footwear, Trump opted for a flat black ballet pump. She wore a similar style of shoe in brown — Christian Louboutin’s Solasofia pump — when she arrived at Helsinki airport in Finland on Sunday. She finished her look with a Birkin handbag in a failsafe flight size.

On Monday, she chose a yellow Gucci coatdress and matching pumps for the Trump-Putin summit held at the residence of Finnish President Sauli Niinisto in Helsinki.
