The military-style jacket, with scrawled graffiti on the back, is a contrast to her usual designer label attire.
Melania Trump has been slammed over an unfortunate choice of jacket on her damage-control mission to visit children displaced by America's immigration crisis.
Though the circus of the Trump administration has brought us through a myriad of roller coaster emotion over the past year, the sheer incredulous and flippant nature of Trump's wardrobe choice is enough render actual vomit.
But the jacket the U.S. first lady wore for Thursday's trip conveyed a different message.
Mrs Trump changed into a pale yellow jacket before the plane landed in McAllen, Texas, for a visit to the Upbring New Hope Children's Centre, which houses 55 migrant children.

Spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham wrote: "Today's visit w the children in Texas impacted @flotus greatly".
The court filing follows an executive order from President Donald Trump on Wednesday that the president claimed would end the routine separation of migrant families apprehended at the border that resulted from a "zero tolerance" policy to prosecute illegal entry.
The document was an executive order ending the practice of separating families at the U.S. border. "She feels the executive order yesterday paved the way forward but there is still more to be done and she wants to lend her support".
"What is the objective of the House doing good immigration bills when you need 9 votes by Democrats in the Senate, and the Dems are only looking to Obstruct", Trump said in a tweet on Thursday as he renewed his call for a change in Senate rules to allow legislation to move with a simple majority. The official said many of reunited families were back together after a few days of separation.
The Trump administration's policy has required that anyone who crosses the border illegally face criminal charges.
She visited a schoolroom and chatted with about 20 young girls and boys. "Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!" he tweeted.
The first lady removed the jacket before landing in McAllen.
A spokesperson for the First Lady denied that that message had any valence to what is now going on at the border. She told the children to "be kind and nice to each other". In recent days, many have taken to social media to criticize Ivanka Trump for not speaking out publicly on the issue.
"That's like Marie Antoinette ripping a piece of bread from a starving baby and spitting on it", said Eugene Gu, a doctor who recently sued to have Trump unblock him on Twitter. She went straight to the Oval Office to brief the president, who later tweeted that the jacket's message referred to her feelings about the "Fake News Media".
