On Thursday afternoon, First Lady Melania Trump and the president met up with the US Special Olympics team. For this occasion, the first lady took her cue from her husband for her choice of clothing.


President Donald Trump, 73, usually wears his signature navy blue suit when seen out in public. This week, his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, 49, chose to copy his style in a suit of her own.

The first lady wore a navy blue suit with a white button-down white shirt as she joined her husband in the oval office. At the time, the pair were hosting members of the US Special Olympics team.


Melania’s Michael Kors stretch-wool blazer cost $1,395. The matching cropped slim pants by the same fashion designer previously retailed for around $695 but was now on sale for $208.

She completed her look with navy heels to add some elegance. The first lady previously wore the navy suit and matching navy pumps in August 2018.


At the time she was giving a speech on cyberbullying in Washington, DC. To meet with the Olympics team, her husband matched her in a navy suit of his own with the standard red tie.

Melania was pictured standing behind her husband as he stayed seated at a desk as they met the team. She was seen smiling when the team gave the president a navy blue jersey that was written “Special Olympics,” “USA,” and “19” in white lettering.


The Olympics team got to meet the presidential couple nearly four months after Donald “overrode”' proposed cuts to the government's funding for the Special Olympics. The team also had a chance to pose for pictures with the Trumps.


In a post on social media, the first lady revealed that she was still wearing the suit when Netherlands Prime Minister Mark Rutte presented them with “an American flag that flew aboard a US Navy Ship on D-Day.” She shared that the flag would be displayed at the Smithsonian Museum.

On July 4, Melania wore a Carolina Herrera white knit midi dress with colorful stripes that had people wondering if she was endorsing gay pride. She added Christian Louboutin fuchsia pink heels to complete her look.

The first lady wore the dress to her husband’s "Salute to America" extravaganza. Gay pride month was celebrated in the previous month in June.
