Melania Trump Gives a Lesson in Neutral Dressing en Route to Mar-a-Lago

Melania Trump knows how to wear neutrals without looking boring.

The first lady jetted from the White House to President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla., on Friday wearing a look in subdued tones that was plenty chic.

Mrs. Trump wore a high-necked, color-block cape coat from Chloe, which was fabricated from wool. The piece is available to shop on Cettire.com, where it is available for $1,872, marked down from $2,080.

The former model teamed her cape coat with skinny black pants, over which she layered a pair of black knee-high boots set on her signature stiletto heel. The shoes appeared to be fabricated in suede.

The first lady wore a variety of textures, a savvy trick to make head-to-toe neutrals look interesting. The color-blocked accents of her coat also caught the eye, even though the colors — beige, navy and gray — produced a subdued palette.

After arriving in Florida, she swapped her neutrals for a more colorful ensemble. FLOTUS wore a pleated floral midi dress from Gucci’s fall ’18 collection, which Net-a-Porter has in stock for $4,900. She teamed the eye-catching dress with equally bold heels, choosing a pair of Christian Louboutin pumps fabricated in purple suede.
