In order to celebrate 'Be Best' campaign and make a memorable entrance, Melania went with a very bold outfit choice.

Breaking the rules

As you can see from the photos, Melania was wearing a white pencil skirt paired with matching Christian Louboutin pumps. It's a big no-no in a fashion community to sport white clothing before Memorial Day, but no one seemed to have warned the FLOTUS about this rule.

The First Lady is known for making statements with her outfits, and this time was no exception. In addition to the sparkling white bottom of her ensemble, Melania put on a Ralph Lauren caramel leather jacket. The cost of the top was a whopping $6,000. 

Despite a risky rule-breaking outfit, we gotta admit, Melania looked stunning.

Why no white before Memorial Day?

So, what's up with this rule anyway? Well, traditionally, wealthy people held off on wearing white before the summer due to high temperature and dark clothing being associated with the working class. This idea transferred to general masses in the middle of 20th century, and it has been abided by since.

We say, if it looks good on you, rock it no matter the society standards!
