Today in, “inappropriate things Melania Trump wears,” is the choice of accessory she opted for while in Africa. On October 5, Melania visited an animal sanctuary in Nairobi, Kenya wearing a white blouse, khaki pants and a white pith helmet.

The helmet, which has become a symbol for 19th century colonialism, has quickly become a popular topic of discussion on social media. People are comparing it to costume, deeming it inappropriate and distasteful.

Others claim that she could use a lesson in American history.

Most users straight-up criticized her inappropriate and tone-deaf fashion choice.

Since the backlash, Melania has made a statement regarding this outfit. If you were expecting an apology, or at least her admitting to wearing an inappropriate piece of clothing, you are sorely mistaken. Instead, according to WWD, she merely said, “I wish people would focus on what I do, not what I wear.”

This isn’t the first time, and most likely will not be the last time, that people have focused on what Melania is wearing. Just a few months ago, she made a major fashion faux pas by wearing a jacket that read, “I really don’t care, do u?,” as she boarded a flight to visit a detention centre at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Or what about the time that she wore heels to a disaster zone? People were not happy about her choice in footwear — stilettos — that she sported en route to Texas to visit the locals after Hurricane Harvey.

It’s only a matter of time until Melania commits her next fashion offence, but until then, we hope that she does a little bit of homework before stepping out again.
