Melania Trump took a step away from her trademark style on Thursday with a military-inspired ensemble.

Melania has kept her wardrobe choices quite safe since becoming US First Lady in January, with form-fitting dresses among her most frequently worn outfits, but she made a bold change on Thursday by wearing a military-inspired skirt-suit.

Joining President Donald Trump for a meeting with the Argentinian President Mauricio Macri and his wife Juliana Awada, Melania made a statement in a khaki green skirt and peplum blazer from Altuzarra's spring 2017 collection.

Featuring over-sized black buttons and black and white piping, the edgy outfit comes in at over €3700, while her matching snake-print Manolo Blahnik court heels retail at €540.

After living in New York for the first three months of Trump's presidency, it has been reported that Melania will move into the White House this summer.

Melania has reportedly been reluctant to move to Washington as she loves her "independent life" in New York, sources told People.

In recent weeks, she has taken on more traditional jobs like reading to a group of children during the annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House and accompanying Queen Rania of Jordan to an all-girls public charter school in Washington D.C. and escorting the Chinese president's wife Peng Liyuan on a tour of a middle school in Florida.
