Jill and Joe Biden traveled to Philadelphia to address the nation on September 1 at Independence Hall. The historic landmark was lit up in red, white and blue, with Jill wearing a bold blazer and must-have pumps.

The first lady’s ensemble consisted of a white midi dress with a faux neckline which she layered under a denim-colored structured long-sleeve blazer with a high collar; it incorporated white stitching along the collar, pockets and buttons that added visual interest to the fitted outerwear.

The blazer collar was embroidered with the same white stitching with a leaf pattern accompanied by dazzling blue buttons serving as a closure for each cuff. The two whimsical additions added a delicate touch to the otherwise structured and sharp overlay piece, slightly softening the formal wear.

Often opting for classic silhouettes, Jill stuck to what she knew, donning sleek black pumps with cropped stilettos and pointed toes. The shoe is a staple for every wardrobe, the versatile color, as well as the shape, lending itself well to a multitude of casual or formal outfits.

For footwear, Jill’s choices are timeless and sharp. The first lady regularly wears versatile heels and boots in nude, black and even embellished tones by Manolo Blahnik, Valentino and Stuart Weitzman. Point-toe pumps in jewel tones and metallics are also a staple for her brighter ensembles, from brands like Sarah Jessica Parker’s SJP, Prada and Jimmy Choo. During the warmer months, she can also be seen in espadrille wedge sandals by Loeffler Randall.

When it comes to fashion, the doctor is known for creating sartorial moments both on the political scene and in her everyday life. Some of his most prolific looks include clothes from brands like Markarian and Dolce & Gabbana and Adam Lippes.
