Jill Biden continued her tours of schools across American this week with a visit to Samuel Smith Elementary School in Burlington, N.J.
Joined by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, the first lady met with local students and addressed teachers and visitors during her time in the tri-state area. The educator herself opted for a chic purple wrap coat for the occasion, layered over a coordinating dress with matching gloves and face mask for safety.
As for footwear, Dr. Biden balanced out her choice of attire with a set of black knee-high boots. The soft suede pair featured a slouchy fit, all set atop an almond-toe front and a lifted stiletto heel. The silhouette has become one of the first lady’s favorites this season as she has been spotted wearing similar pairs throughout January and February, all courtesy of one of her go-to brands, Stuart Weitzman.
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.
When it comes to shoes, Dr. Biden herself has always been a fan of slingback silhouettes, which are known for their ease of wear thanks to straps around the back of the ankle. Her go-to brands include Dior, Jimmy Choo and Prada. She also is known for her love of running and in the past has preferred workout-ready footwear from running brand On as well as her newfound love for Stuart Weitzman’s standout Vote boots. When it comes to apparel, the first lady’s official style taps a mix of well-known labels like Brandon Maxwell as well as supports smaller American brands like Jonathan Cohen and Markarian to name a few.
