OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Melania Trump is usually low profile and is not flamboyantly seen about.

When she is seen, the elegant former first lady’s classy, elegant taste in clothes is noticed and scrutinized.

Melania has maintained a relatively low profile in recent months, taking a big step back from the spotlight since Trump’s presidency came to an end last year.

She’s only been seen at events a handful of times, while her husband has continued to make regular appearances.

It’s been rumored that her husband, former President Donald Trump is currently enjoying his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, which could explain why she was visiting the Big Apple – which is only about an hour from the lavish property.

The couple has reportedly been living at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, since they moved out of the White House last January, according to the Daily Mail.

Melania, who is understated in her speech but makes statements with her clothing, recently came under fire after it was revealed that she had refused to ask rioters to back down last year when they stormed the U.S. Capitol.

She came under fire in 2018 for wearing a khaki military-style jacket that had the words, ‘I really don’t care, do you?’ sprawled across the back.

Former President Donald later said she was sending a message to ‘the Fake News Media’ with the $39 statement jacket from Zara, which she wore while getting on a plane to fly to McAllen, Texas, and looked very similar to the one was wearing on Thursday, The Daily Mailreported.

‘Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares,’ he tweeted at the time, in reference to Melania’s controversial piece of clothing.

Recently, the elegant Mrs. Trump was once again criticized for not speaking out, even though she does not speak out habitually.

Melania received scrutiny after her former Chief of Staff Stephanie Grisham shared a screenshot of an alleged text exchange between the two of them on Twitter earlier this week, which showed Melania declining to speak out against the violence which took place at the Capitol on January 6, after supporters of her husband broke into the government building.

‘Do you want to tweet that peaceful protests are the right of every American, but there is no place for lawlessness and violence?’ Stephanie asked Melania in the texts, to which the first lady allegedly replied, ‘No.’

Obviously, Melania did not want to make a public statement about the events.

Stephanie previously detailed this interaction with Melania in her book, I’ll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw at the Trump White House, explaining how it compelled her to step down from her position.

She claimed that Melania was in the middle of a photoshoot, capturing some of the White House’s rugs, when the Capitol was breached by the pro-Trump crowd, calling her reaction ‘dismissive, defeated, and detached.’

‘It broke me,’ she wrote in the book. ‘I took a breath and waited another minute. You learned to do that in the Trump White House: make sure you are grounded and not acting out of the moment. Then I resigned.

‘I sent her an email and cc-ed her senior adviser so I couldn’t take it back or be talked out of it. I was done.’

It seems that Melania was leaving the situation to her husband and capable staff, rather than insert herself into the fray, and Stephanie wanted her to take part.

In an unconnected moment, Melania was seen on a rare outing in New York City on Thursday, keeping it casual as she made her way into Trump Tower with a slew of secret service members around her.

The former first lady, 52, donned a green, embroidered, tie-up shirt for the outing, which she paired with loose, tan pants and a pair of beige $695 Roger Vivier ballet flats, Daily Mail wrote.

It seems she does have a liking for military-style jackets and khaki.

Melania clutched onto a large cream Hermes Birkin bag – which can range in price from $11,000 up to $30,000 depending on the exact leather and style.

She kept the sleeves of the top rolled up amid New York City’s heat. Her long highlighted brown locks were left loose in waves around her face.

Melania shielded her eyes from the bright sun in a pair of sunglasses, Daily Mail continued.

Secret service members, who wore blue suits, sunglasses, and earpieces, protected the former first lady as she exited her vehicle and walked into the building.

She kept the sleeves of the top rolled up amid New York City’s heat.

Her long highlighted brown locks were left loose in waves around her face, Daily Mail noted.

Elegant and classy as ever, Mrs. Trump is to be commended for her understated style, so understated that when she does make a statement, be it with clothing or not spoken, she makes the news nevertheless.
