The 1 Accessory Melania Trump Wears From A.M. to P.M. — No Questions Asked
With notable appearances in designer shades, sunglasses have become a signature part of Melania Trump's style. You might remember, for instance, her appearances returning to the White House in October 2017: once from Puerto Rico, where she and the president visited victims of Hurricane Maria, and then from Las Vegas, following the deadly mass shooting. On both occasions, it was after dark and Melania wore her oversize frames.
But we're here to tell you that Melania Trump should not just be remembered as the "sunglasses at night" FLOTUS, for she wears plenty of standout styles during the day, too. From Dolce & Gabbana shades to her mirrored aviator lenses and Saint Laurent tortoise rims, it seems as though Melania's collection of sunglasses extends just as far as that of her bags or shoes.
