It seems like Melania Trump continues to divert our attention from one controversial outfit by slipping on another. After she arrived at the United Nations in a flashy, voluminous Delpozo dress that got people sidetracked from her speech on bullying, she hosted local school children in the White House Garden, just like Michelle Obama had done since 2009. Michelle launched the initiative in tandem with her Let's Move! campaign, and when it came to spending time in the garden, Michelle put on her most casual outfits, including J. Crew sweaters and Converse sneakers.

As far as the Converse go, Melania was in sync with the former FLOTUS. But her Balmain tartan shirt, which retails for $1,380, has sparked outrage on Twitter. It might look like a typical outdoorsy outfit upon first glance, but take in the fact that Melania wore a pair of gloves identical in shade along with dark Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses, and you'll quickly realize that this is not your mama's gardening outfit. Read on to see what people are saying about the style move, which, all details considered, isn't exactly one that says, "I am ready to get down and dirty and collect some vegetables."
