Jill Biden pays homage to Title IX in purple jacket with Billie Jean King – Footwear News

Dr. Jill Biden steps into summer with flowers. The first lady was a splash of color in a pretty pastel ensemble during the Title IX 50th anniversary speech in Washington, DC, today. Federal law guarantees equality in education regardless of sex, gender, or sexual orientation. Title IX has played a pivotal role in the growth and development of women’s sports. Biden joined tennis champion Billie Jean King and All-American High School athlete Maya Mosley on stage at the event.

For the occasion, the Professor made a deal for the sunny season in a purple double-breasted blazer. The overcoat was complete with pointed structured shoulders and wide lapels. Underneath, she wore a floral dress that perfectly matched the color of her jacket.

Unfortunately, the angle of the photos didn’t allow a peek at her shoe choice, but it wouldn’t be surprising if she finished her look with a sharp set of pointy-toe pumps. The educator tends to gravitate toward an array of pointed styles with varying heel heights.
