"Dress Like a Woman" and Other Useful Fashion Advice From…Donald Trump

Donald Trump, recently inaugurated President and long-time fashion icon, wants his employees looking as shiny and new as Trump Towers on a crisp fall day.

Those who have worked with Trump spoke to Axios about Mr. Trump's obsession with appearance, not only in regards to himself but also with anyone who represents him.

It makes sense, considering his reality television persona and obsession with commenting on women's bodies whenever he gets the chance, but is it presidential, exactly?

Answer: No. No it is not.

Here's some of the fashion wisdom Trump has been known to dole out to his team.

Dress like a woman.

"Even if you're in jeans, you need to look neat and orderly," a source tells Axois.

Come on, ladies. Pants? Be serious.

A woman should only wear skirts and dresses, and most importantly, always take her fashion advice from a giant orange clown.

The thinner the tie, the weaker the man.

A source who has worked with Trump tells Axios that Trump prefers wider ties, and that, "You're always supposed to wear a tie. If it's not a Trump tie, you can get away with Brooks Brothers. But I'd suggest Armani."

Steve Bannon is apparently the only member of Trump's cabinet who can get away with this, simply due to the fact that he is Steve Bannon.

Government officials should look like GQ cover models.

Allegedly, Trump was quite displeased with Press Secretary Sean Spicer for appearing at his first press conference wearing an "ill-fitting" suit.

A source close to Trump says: "It'd be one thing to wear a pinstripe that fit him perfectly. But, it was like, he had a gap in his collar. I was like, 'Oh God, he's going to get reamed.'"

A gap?! Perish the thought.

We look forward to the next four years of Trump's eloquent fashion advice, which we can only imagine will take up the majority of his presidential schedule.
