People love reading into whatever Melania Trump wears, be it That Jacket or That Pussy Bow.

But if ever the former first lady was trying to send the world a message through her clothing, it was definitely with this outfit:

This is what Melania was wearing when she stepped off the plane in Florida after leaving the White House for the last time.

As a reminder, let's take a look at what former-FLOTUS was dressed in when she departed Washington, DC.

That's a very expensive Chanel jacket paired with a Dolce & Gabbana dress, and Christian Louboutin heels.

And she's carrying (well, in some photos, anyway) a $50,000 Hermès Birkin bag:

But somewhere along the 90-minute flight from Joint Base Andrews to Palm Beach, Melania's whole vibe took a turn.

Suddenly, there was color, pattern, a dress some people might call a muumuu.

Of course, this is Melania Trump, and Melania's muumuus do not run cheap. The Gucci Long G hexagon print wool silk dress retails for $3,700. (Personally, I love it.)

And she's wearing FLATS.

From black to bright color, a total shift, a dawning of a new day. Or maybe just a chance to pull out her fave in-season Gucci look.

Who can know, after all, what strikes in the heart of Melania Trump?
