* Melania Trump wore Ralph Lauren to inauguration
* She paired cropped pale blue jacket with turtleneck dress
* Get the same look with statement coat or long jacket
While most eyes were on Donald Trump this week as he accepted the post of President, more than a few eyes were glued to new First Lady Melania Trump as well. The buzz over who – and what – Melania would be wearing to the inauguration ceremony had been a source of much contentious debate.
In the end, Melania turned to American designer, Ralph Lauren, who had previously expressed his interest in dressing her for the momentous occasion. The First Lady look classy and elegant in a pale blue cashmere ensemble, with a bold, statement collar and three-quarter-length sleeves. The look and silhouette immediately drew comparisons to Jackie Kennedy. Melania completed the ensemble with a long dress, graceful up-do, simple earrings and gloves.
Want the Melania look without going over the top? Skip the matchy-matchy thing and start by buying a statement coat or jacket in a similar shade of blue. Look for a wool or cashmere blend for a piece that is as versatile as it is stylish.
