Boots like Biden’s are favored for their versatile silhouette and practical height, allowing for easy movement with high coverage during colder months. Pairs in similarly neutral tones are the most popular in the fall, as seen in new styles by Stuart Weitzman, Dolce Vita and Vince Camuto.

Sharp coat styles with longer lengths — also like Biden’s — are also popular during the winter. Styles with details like lapeled collars, buttoned silhouettes and attached belts are favored for their tailored appearance, often warmly accentuated by textiles including cashmere, wool and velvet. Seasonal styles are released from numerous labels, as evidenced by Calvin Klein, Guess and Michael Kors, among other brands.

When it comes to footwear, Biden’s choices are classic and chic. The first lady frequently favors pointed-toe pumps in nude and black tones from brands including Dior, Valentino and Stuart Weitzman. Color-coordinated heels are also a go-to for her brighter ensembles, hailing from Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo. In warmer months, she can also be seen in Loeffler Randall espadrille wedges and On Running sneakers.
