Senior Advisor Ivanka Trump attended the ceremony of President Trump sign the historic first stage of a trade deal with China on Wednesday held in the East Room of the White House.
Looking business elegant for the ceremony, Ivanka donned an ensemble comprised of a matching navy checked printed peplum top and pencil skirt by Oscar de la Renta. This is the third time she wore this stylish business ensemble, recently in October when heading to work and in November 2018 for the G20 Summit in Buenos Aires.
The Bouclé cotton-blend pelpum short-sleeve top features a peplum hem that splits open at the center front, cocoon-like silhouette and cinches in at the waist with a detachable coordinating belt. It retailed for $2,490, but it is on sale for $996 at MyTheresa.com. She paired the peplum top with the matching navy checked pencil skirt. The A-line midi skirt is a cotton blend that features a check print, heavy ribbed fabric trim, and a side zip fastening. It retailed for $1,190, but unfortunately it is now sold out.
To complete the look, Ivanka paired the ensemble with navy patent leather pumps from Manolo Blahnik. These pumps retailed for $595, but unfortunately it is sold out.

During the ceremony, President Trump said the deal is “righting the wrongs of the past.” Joined by Chinese Vice Premier Liu He in signing the initial “Phase One” trade deal, Trump promoted the agreement as a way of delivering economic justice for American workers, saying the signing marks a “sea change in international trade.”
“Today we take a momentous step, one that has never been taken before with China, toward a future of fair and reciprocal trade as we sign Phase One of the historic trade deal between the United States and China,” Trump said at the signing ceremony. “Together we are righting the wrongs of the past and delivering a future of economic justice and security for American workers, farmers and families.”
He added, “With this signing, we mark more than just an agreement; we mark a sea change in international trade. At long last, Americans have a government that puts them first at the negotiating table. First in trade. First in every deal, every decision, and every action we take with incredible enforceability.”
In the agreement, China committed to boosting purchases of U.S. goods and services by $200 billion over the next two years, including $77.7 billion for manufactured goods and $32 billion for agricultural products. It also reduce tariffs on Chinese imports by 15% on $120 billion, but leaves the 25% tariffs on an additional $250 billion of imports in place.
The trade agreement is expected to boost exports from U.S. farmers and manufacturers, protect American trade secrets, and lower tensions in a long-running dispute between the world’s two biggest economies.
Chinese leader Xi Jinping said in a letter to Trump that the first phase was ‘good for China, the U.S. and for the whole world.’ The letter was read by Beijing’s chief negotiator, Vice Premier Liu He.
