With all of this military stuff and Anthony Scaramucci mumble-jumble happening lately, we’ve forgotten to focus on what’s really important: Ivanka Trump’s clothing line. According to her website, Ivanka “[recognized] the absence of a brand that addressed the needs of the modern professional woman.” I don’t know about you, but when I think ‘modern’ and ‘professional’, I think about the Trumps.
Ivanka (a working woman) knows other working women’s mornings are filled with many questions:
Is this sleeveless top appropriate for work?
Will I be more comfortable in a dress?
Should I bring a sweater to work?
Are these good commuting shoes?
Should I sit idly by while my father—a reality star—slowly deteriorates our country’s democracy?
Being a woman is tough. But dressing for the day shouldn’t be! I’m sure your pants are fine, so I will just go through five of my favorite shirts to get you through the workweek, designed by everyone’s favorite First Gal!
Start your week off right by going to the gym, then refusing to change clothes and heading straight to work. What I love most about Ivanka’s line is ambiguity. Is this casual or dressy? Who knows! But you’re a #womanwhoworks, so make it your own. ;)
Picnic date night after work? Look no further than this top. It’s not quite gingham, per se, but still picnic-y enough where you won’t feel out of place. Ivanka’s nanny used to tell her lore of people who sit on the ground and eat. Ivanka, startled, drew inspiration from these tales to create something that is not only plaid, and not only off-the-shoulder, but also ruffled.
If you’re a fan of Seinfeld, then you’re going to love Hump Day’s look! No, Ivanka couldn’t name it “The Seinfeld Shirt” for copyright reasons, but the similarities are hard to ignore. Rumor has it Trump styled this after watching The Puffy Shirt episode (the only episode she’s ever seen) and hearing Elaine’s classic line, "You're supposed to be a compassionate person that cares about poor people!"
“Yes!” Ivanka thought. “I should look like I care about poor people.”
Perfect for company meetings—just in case you get a little chilly in the office!
Ivanka saw a peasant once. She was at a Starbucks and ordered a tall, skinny, non-fat, one pump white mocha. A girl behind the counter — wearing glasses, for God’s sake — handed her the drink. Making sure to wrap her hand in a tissue before touching the cup, Ivanka turned around. “Daddy,” she asked, “Who was that person that made me this tall, skinny, non-fat, one pump white mocha?”
“That’s a peasant, Ivanka,” he answered. She went home and Googled the word, studying the etymology as well as the history of such people. In the end, Ivanka created this Peasant Blouse. It’s the perfect day-to-night transition piece for drinks after work.
Anything that includes the words ‘hooded’, ‘performance’, and ‘poncho’ in one title is A-OK in my book. Lucky for me, Ivanka Trump has created the perfect top! Perfect for Casual Friday when you’re just itching to wear a poncho, but you’re also afraid it might rain. Before this piece was available, I (stupidly!) used to buy all of my hoodies and ponchos separately; so this top is trendy and thrifty.
If you have $125 leftover I suggest you buy these shoes and wear them with everything.
