I don't recall many comments on Melania's clothes other than that inappropriate jacket (I really don't care, do U? Imagine if Michelle or Hillary had worn it!). There were far more slams on the Obamas' clothing...tan suit! shirtsleeves in the oval office! sleeveless inauguration ball gown! Not to mention complaints that she bought much of her clothing off the rack at J Crew and such, just like regular folks. I remember my MIL, a middle class Texas-raised conservative, complaining about Rosalyn Carter's ordinary clothing as disrespectful of the presidency and not inspiring to the public.

I complimented Melania's inaugural parade outfit. Simple, yet gorgeous--I still remember it (and that jacket-) long after I've forgotten other FLOTUS clothing. Can't remember a single thing Jill Biden has worn and of Michelle, only her inaugural parade outfit and that off-the-shoulder ball gown.

But I remember Bernie's mittens, which went viral ;-)
