Melania Trump’s Convention Outfit: Ready for Battle!

On the second night of the Republican National Convention, Melania Trump came dressed for battle.

She strode alone down the white-pillared colonnade of the White House on the long walk to the podium in an olive green skirt suit with broad shoulders and a military edge, exactingly tailored, caught at the waist with a wide belt and brass buttons. It was a far cry from the usual first lady convention garb, most often a dress or more lunchable suit, chosen with purpose to soften the image of the candidate and, by extension, help frame his — or her — more domestic side.

It was a far cry, for example, from the white dress with belled sleeves that Mrs. Trump herself had chosen for her speech at the 2016 Republican Convention; a step away from the full-skirted green coatdress that Dr. Jill Biden wore in her appearance last week; even more removed from the pink and silver sleeveless brocade dress that sent the internet aflame when Michelle Obama wore it in 2012.

It was unusual enough, in this context, to demand attention before Mrs. Trump even opened her mouth on Tuesday evening.

She could — like Tiffany Trump, who chose a cocktail-ready Tiffany-blue pantsuit with flared trousers slit up to the knee — have gone after the media, and the campus thought police. “Why are so many in the media, in technology, even in our own government, so invested in promoting a biased and fabricated view?” she said.

She could, like Eric Trump, who wore some beard scruff to match his brother’s and spouted rhetoric and a bright blue tie with a big knot to match his father’s, have gone after Joe Biden and the Democrats, who he said “want to destroy the monuments of our forefathers” and “burn the Stars and Stripes that represent patriotism and the American dream.”

Mrs. Trump makes so few appearances, and reveals so little of herself when she does, it is impossible to know. That’s partly why her fashion choices have been read like wearable tea leaves. After all, as a former model, there is little doubt she makes such decisions with deliberation.
