As part of our midyear style report series, we're bringing you six months' worth of ensembles from Jill Biden.
Since the turn of 2011, the second lady has branched out from her color crutch (blue), adding some glitzy black, pink and red into the mix. Her ever-present pearls, in the forms of necklaces, bracelets, earrings -- you name it, haven't disappeared during the first half of the year and we expect she'll stick with the same style formula come fall and winter.
