The first lady walked alongside the president in style, layering up to beat the cold in a white pleated dress, blue blazer and black ankle-length peacoat. She further accessorized with a printed scarf and a protective black face mask.

The first couple then paused ahead of the president boarding Marine One, sneaking in a quick kiss before the commander in chief made his way to speak to the awaiting press.

When it came down to footwear, the educator complemented the knee-skimming hem of her dress with a pair of knee-high suede boots. The slouchy-chic style featured a block-heel base along with a classic rounded toe, resembling the brown version of the silhouette that she modeled last week in Washington D.C. Previously, the Jill’s boots came courtesy of Stuart Weitzman and Gianvito Rossi.

Knee-high and thigh-high boots have quickly become the must-have boot silhouette this season. From leather twists on the trend to edgy lace-up styles, you can find the taller shoes on everyone from Ciara to Lily Collins and Gwen Stefani amongst other major stars. In colder temperatures, the silhouettes offer coverage to counter skirts, dresses and shorts as well as provides an extra layer to any leggings or jeans look.
