December 21 might have been the first day of winter, but Ivanka Trump wasn’t having it. Instead, she wore her spring best, despite the dipping degrees.
The 35-year-old businesswoman stepped out in the nearly freezing weather in a $1,160 white Peter Pilotto turtleneck featuring ‘70s-eqsue geometric patterns. While the ‘Track’ Stripe Wool Fleece Turtleneck Sweater was probably warm, the pastel pattern — inspired by the board game Ludo — set against the white material would probably be more fit for Easter, not Christmas. Plus, she paired it with pale pink dress pants. Seriously, this outfit screams daytime brunch with flowers on the cusp of blooming. And while we’re all dreaming of those days, we’re not pulling out the pastels just yet.
We do appreciate her sunny disposition; in a month or so we are going to be seriously sick of all the gray sweaters, dirty snow and tights.
To top it all off — she didn’t top it off; instead of wearing a parka in the frigid cold, she carried her white peacoat.
It seems like Ivanka, who recently began contending with paparazzi hanging outside of her apartment on a daily basis, has fully transformed into a street style star. Like her peers who attend fashion week in February wearing weather inappropriate clothing, she doesn’t seem to let temperatures get in the way of a fabulous outfit.
This isn’t the first time the president elect’s daughter stepped out into winter weather without coat. Just last week she stepped out in a black blouse featuring see-through lace cutouts around her shoulders and black cropped slacks, carrying her coat. The high was 34 that day. The day before, she rocked a pale blue dress and what looked like bare legs. Maybe we’re turning into our mothers, but, we want to scream, “put on a coat! You’ll catch a cold!”
Ivanka, your outfits might be worth showing off, but not worth freezing for. You know it’s winter, right? Or maybe she learned a thing or two from her meeting with Al Gore and this is her way of proving the effects of global warming?
