Melania Trump Jets Back to the White House in Soaring Knee-High Boots

Melania Trump arrived back at the White House yesterday following a trip to London.

The first lady sported a classic-chic ensemble for her return. She layered a black-and-white houndstooth Alexander McQueen coat over a black dress.

For shoes, Trump selected black knee-high boots with an almond toe and stiletto heel. The shoes appeared to be fabricated in suede and featured a zipper at the side for easy pull-on, pull-off.

While black boots are a staple of winter style, Trump hit on a major fall ’19 trend with her pair. The knee-high length is trending this autumn, having reemerged after several seasons dominated by thigh-highs and ankle boots.

Although the designer of the boots is unknown, the first lady has a penchant for two shoe styles: Manolo Blahnik’s BB and Christian Louboutin’s So Kate. Both silhouettes are classic, pointed-toe pumps set on sky-high stiletto heels.

For a visit to Buckingham Palace in London on Tuesday, the former model wore a mustard-colored Valentino cape layered over a long-sleeved purple dress. She went with her go-to So Kate pumps that day, choosing a violet pair to match her dress sleeves.

It’s rare for Trump to be spotted in anything but heels, but she has mixed in several flat shoes over the years, such as Zara loafers, Converse sneakers and Louboutin ballet flats.
