The blazer retails for $295 and is available for purchase at Tommy.com. She paired the blazer with the matching flared monogram print trouser. It retailed for $149, but it is now sold out. To complete the whole look, Ivanka teamed the monogram pant suit with a monogram turtleneck. The sleek turtleneck is figure-flattering that features a zip closure at the back. It retailed for $99, and is on sale for $85 at Tommy.com.
While the blazer and turtleneck are still available to purchase and on sale, below are similar monogram alternatives one can snag to recreate Ivanka’s look.
Ivanka promoted her visit to Atlanta on her Instagram stories.
‘An estimated 12,400 sex trafficking transactions take place in Atlanta each month,” Ivanka wrote on Instagram. “This morning I will visit two safe havens that provide women with the opportunity for rescue, restoration, and a chance to start a new life. I look forward to hearing from survivors and counselors and learning from their stories and experiences.”
Joining Ivanka touring City of Refuge, a safe house near downtown Atlanta, and Wellspring Living’s Women’s Academy, a non-profit that provides specialized recovery service programs to survivors of human trafficking was Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and his wife, Mary Kemp, Senator Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar, and Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr.
Several women shared their stories at the roundtable gathering in Wellspring Living and said they sought help at the academy, which provides therapy, housing, education, job training, and other assistance to victims who have been sexually exploited.
“You really represent resilience and strength on a level we will never know,” Ivanka said after one survivor shared her story. “There is a lot more we can do individually and collectively to address human trafficking and I’m excited to be part of this conversation.”
The first daughter also said the Trump administration is “committed to bringing the full force and weight of the U.S. government to solve the horrific problem of trafficking in persons.”
Ivanka announced on Tuesday that the White House will be hosting a summit on human trafficking. The summit will mark 20 years since Congress made human trafficking a federal crime. President Trump, along with Attorney General Bill Bar and members of House and Senate leaders will be attending the summit.
“On Jan 31st, @WhiteHouse will host a Summit on Human Trafficking w/ state, local and tribal leaders, survivors, NGOs and employers to find new ways to combat this evil industry,” Ivanka tweeted. “We are committed to rescuing victims, supporting survivors and putting traffickers behind bars.”
“Twenty years ago, the Trafficking Victims Protection Act was signed into law,” Ivanka said. “To honor this milestone as we continue our robust efforts to combat human trafficking at home and abroad, the White House will host a summit to discuss the impact of this landmark legislation and to identify new solutions to end the scourge of modern slavery.”
