Jill Biden wows in pleated dress and peacoat as she kisses Joe Biden before his first trip out of White House
First lady Jill Biden looked stylish in a layered outfit as she attempted to stay warm while giving her husband, President Joe Biden a kiss on the lips on the South Lawn of the White House before he headed off to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to meet with wounded troops on Friday, January 29.
For the occasion, she chose to wear a white pleated dress, blue blazer and black ankle-length peacoat. She finished off her look of the day with a printed scarf, black leather gloves and a protective black face mask. The knee-skimming hem of her dress was complemented with a pair of knee-high suede boots. According to Footwear News, the boots were reminiscent of the brown version of the silhouette that she modeled last week in Washington DC courtesy of Stuart Weitzman and Gianvito Rossi.

Jill's go-to brands for shoes include Dior, Jimmy Choo and Prada. She is also known to harbor some love for Weitzman’s standout Vote boots that she frequently wore during the election season. As for off-duty occasions, she prefers comfort over anything else and normally opts for On Running sneakers.
As with several previous first ladies of the White House, Jill's boots quickly became the must-have footwear style this season. The boots are great for offering coverage to counter skirts, dresses and shorts as well as providing an extra layer to any leggings or jeans look. Everyone from Ciara to Lily Collins and Gwen Stefani as well as an array of other celebrities have begun sporting edgy laced-up to leathery boots.
Ahead of the president boarding Marine One, the first couple snuck in a quick kiss before Biden made his way to speak to the awaiting press. We previously reported that this was Biden's first official trip out of the White House since he became president and his first ride on Marine One as commander-in-chief. The Bidens have a long history with the National Military Medical Center, which is known for treating thousands of service members, military veterans, and their families. While he was vice president, the Bidens would visit the troops often, including Christmas. The doctors at the military hospital had also treated Biden's son Beau when he was battling brain cancer. Sadly, Beau died in 2015.
"I've been at Walter Reed a lot. I spent almost six months there myself as a patient. And in addition to that, as Vice President, every single Christmas, we spent all of Christmas Day at Walter Reed. These kids are amazing," he told reporters on the South Lawn before he left. "They're real heroes."
While at the hospital, Biden met the wounded soldiers from the Marines Corps, Army, and Army National Guard. His son Beau served in Delaware's Army National Guard. He also supervised the vaccination distribution at the hospital which took place in a converted basketball gym. There were masked attendants in white medical gowns, who were delivering vaccines to service members. He also spoke to Colonel Andrew Barr, who is the director of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and Command Master Chief Randy Swanson. He appreciated them for looking after his son.
