What Melania Wore Welcoming 2018 White House Christmas Tree

Tis’ the season for plaid prints and oversized coats.

Welcoming the White House Christmas tree Monday afternoon, First Lady Melania Trump was seen dressed festively in a red ankle-length plaid cape coat. Known as the “Melton” cape coat in tartan plaid from the Michael Kors Collection, it features wide lapels that were embellished with double breasted buttons and arm slits. The Michael Kors cape coat originally retailed for $3,995 at Neiman Marcus, but it is on sale for $2,996.

She teamed the eye-catching cape coat with a monochromatic look of the black crew-neck sweater and skinny jeans paired with a black over-the-knee Christian Louboutin boots. The 70mm Alta Top black suede stretch thigh-highs retails for $1,550, but is sold out.

This year’s tree stands at 19.5 feet, hails from Mountain Top Fraser Fir in Newland, North Carolina.  It was nurtured by Larry Smith, dubbed the “Grand Champion Grower” by the National Christmas Tree Association. The tradition of the White House Christmas tree dates back to 1889, when President Benjamin Harrison placed the first tree in the Yellow Room, decorated with candles and toys for his grandchildren, according to the White House Historical Association.

The planning of the White House’s 2018 began for Melania in July when she tweeted a photo of a meeting showing gold ornaments and red berries as possible decors.

The tree will be on display in the Blue Room of the White House through the holiday season. The season’s festivities will continue on Tuesday with the President pardoning the Thanksgiving turkey, into December with a packed schedule of holiday parties.
