She participated in a wreath-laying ceremony at the Delaware Memorial Bridge Veterans Memorial Park wearing a color-block combination from head to toe. The English professor had on a black and white peplum dress that cut right at the knee. It featured bold white trim around the collar, sleeve and skirt. For shoes, she wore a pair done in the same color scheme by Carolina Herrera. The patent pumps incorporated a black cap toe with bow detail on a nearly 4-inch heel.

Meanwhile, Vice President Biden looked sharp in a dark suit, loafers and aviators. The couple embraced public safety recommendations by wearing face masks. Also today, Jill’s current counterpart Karen Pence wore a peplum dress with pumps during a ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, and Melania Trump wore all-white at the same event.
