Ivanka Trump channels Hillary Clinton in white pantsuit during NASA visit with Ted Cruz

Is Ivanka Trump taking style cues from Hillary Clinton and the suffragettes?

While the first daughter and senior White House adviser is no stranger to a power suit, the white linen number she wore for Thursday’s visit to NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston is notable because of its symbolic connection to feminist causes — and her father’s presidential opponent.

(FILES) Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner arrive for a joint press conference by US President Donald Trump and Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the East Room of the White House on February 15, 2017 in Washington, DC. While the new US president has shown a capacity to change, both his tone and his positions, he has been unable to show the world a 'new' Trump, with a steady presidential style and a clearly articulated worldview. As the symbolic milestone of his 100th day in power, which falls on April 29, 2017, draws near, a cold, hard reality is setting in for the billionaire businessman who promised Americans he would 'win, win, win' for them. At this stage of his presidency, he is the least popular US leader in modern history (even if his core supporters are still totally behind him.) / AFP PHOTO / MANDEL NGAN / TO GO WITH AFP STORY, US-politics-Trump-100days (Photo credit should read MANDEL NGAN/AFP/Getty Images)

According to White House Fashion, Trump wore Frame’s $450 linen-blend blazer and $330 boot-cut trousers as she toured the NASA facilities with Sen. Ted Cruz to learn more about the future of space exploration and support STEM education.

While it’s highly possible that Trump wore white because of its futuristic, sci-fi effect, it’s hard to ignore the scrutiny paid to the white pantsuit in recent years.

White has long been associated with the suffragette movement, with supporters wearing it with purple and gold as they fought for women’s right to vote. As the Baltimore Sun has noted, it was the color’s association with the suffragettes and female rebellion that inspired Hillary Clinton to wear white pantsuits during “crucial” campaign moments, including her final debate with Donald Trump. The white pantsuit she wore to Trump’s 2017 inauguration was seen as a symbol of defiance.

BACK TO SLIDE

Other female Democratic politicians have followed Clinton’s lead. In February 2017, women representing the House Democratic Women’s Working Group attended President Trump’s address to Congress in white outfits as a show of solidarity. The sartorial move was mocked by Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer of North Dakota, who considered it a “rude” slight to Trump.

“Did you notice how poorly several of them were dressed as well?” he said during a radio town hall, CNN reported. “It is a syndrome. There is no question, there is a disease associated with the notion that a bunch of women would wear bad-looking white pantsuits in solidarity with Hillary Clinton to celebrate her loss. You cannot get that weird.”

Female leaders were quick to fire back.

“When we are sitting right in front of [Trump] with a sea of white attire, [showing] that we are not going to allow him to roll back women’s progress in this country, it’s actually patriotic and shows that we care about the issues that are important to women and won’t let them roll back our progress,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., responded in a CNN interview.

The white pantsuit has crossed party lines, however. First lady Melania Trump’s Christian Dior look at the State of the Union address on Jan. 30 raised eyebrows, with some speculating that it might be a response to Stormy Daniels’s allegations, which had just been made public. Others, however, have slammed suggestions that FLOTUS was trying to align herself with feminist causes.

So is there a deeper meaning to what Ivanka Trump — whose wardrobe has been compared with Clinton’s in the past — wore, or is a pantsuit sometimes just a pantsuit?

The Trumps welcomed Polish President Andrzej Duda and his wife Agata Kornhauser-Duda to the White House in September. The problem? Melania was wearing a wool coat while it was still 80 degrees outside. Furthermore, she didn't remove her coat while dining inside with the Polish first lady, which Twitter deemed not the best hostess tactic.

Melania Trump tried her hand at gardening for the second time to plant an Eisenhower Oak at the White House in August. The $4000 skirt and sky-high Louboutin heels she wore to dig soil sent the internet aflame.

Arguably her most controversial outfit yet, Melania sported a jacket emblazoned with the words "I Really Don't Care Do You" to visit migrant children separated from their parents in Texas. The Zara jacket retails for $39.

Following Ivana Trump's controversial interview in October, Melania donned an emerald green shirtdress from British brand Cefinn to an official visit to Lily's Place to visit with families affected by addiction. It's the first non-profit infant recovery center in the world.

"We are building our future with American hands, American labor, American iron, aluminum and steel," POTUS wrote. Ironically, Melania's dress was designed by Mary Katrantzou, a Greek-born British designer. Twitter had *a lot* to say.
