Jill Biden and Kate Middleton Wore the Same Classic Shoes to Their First Meeting

We talk a lot about wardrobe classics here at Who What Wear, from tan trench coats to white blouses. But is there one single item that reigns supreme when it comes to perennial fashion favorites? Well, if you looked at the new images of the ultimate power couple, First Lady Jill Biden and the Duchess of Cambridge, it may just be nude, pointy-toe pumps. Both women chose to wear the classic shoe style, solidifying its cult status. 

I know what some people will say: Why talk about what they're wearing when they are doing such important work? Well, we're proponents of both style and substance, and discussing one shouldn't detract from the other. The first lady and the duchess visited the Connor Downs Academy, which works with students who have experienced trauma. Considering that Biden is a teacher and that one of Kate Middleton's biggest focuses is early education, the event was particularly meaningful for both women. Scroll down to see photos from their first meeting.
