As they headed to Air Force One on Saturday, the first couple prepared for the windy weather in style. While the president opted for a patriotic navy suit and red tie, the first lady proved the power of a bold accessory choice; her outfit layered a black coat over a hidden a lilac dress with a print neck scarf to tie the look together.

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 winter as she has been seen wearing similar pairs throughout January and February.

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.
