Ivanka Trump Makes the Case for Kitten Heels on India State Visit in This Traditional South Asian Outfit

Ivanka Trump wore an all-white ensemble today as President Donald Trump continued his two-day state visit in India.

The first daughter wore a traditional South Asian tunic-and-trouser pairing, known as the “shalwar kameez.”  The tunic featured a button-up front with long sleeves and a pocket accent on the breast; the straight-leg pants came in the same color.

When it comes to her typical style, Trump tends to pick designs from high-fashion labels such as Max Mara, Carolina Herrera and Dolce & Gabbana. For shoes, she often chooses stilettos, with go-to brands including Burberry, Jimmy Choo and Gianvito Rossi. The senior White House adviser operated her own line of apparel, shoes and accessories until 2018.

On Monday, Trump sported a pair of bright red pumps as she visited the Taj Mahal alongside Kushner. The mom of three teamed the bold shoes with an arty floral dress from Proenza Schouler.
