Snow! Snow! And more snow?! Thanks Polar Vortex 2.0 for inspiring us (once again) to seek out some arctic chic fashion. This time we honed in on all-weather winter boots that don’t sacrifice style for function. These three winter boots will prevent you from slipping and sliding to work, while keeping your toes warm and blending in effortlessly with your wardrobe. They’re truly a closet essential since, these days, you never know when the next snowstorm will take you by surprise.
Sorel Women’s Winter Fancy Tall Boot, $200
Sorel snow boots are classic, reliable all-weather boots, and these tall black ones are their chicest style. They can easily transition from your sloppy commute to your office. You can trek through snow, sleet, wintry mix, etc. and still show up with warm, dry feet thanks to some serious insulation.
MICHAEL Michael Kors Cold Weather Boots—Aaran, $245
These moto inspired boots are great if you want a little edge to your snow style. The gold buckle detail elevates these boots from your typical bulky snow boot variety, making them work appropriate. They’re lined with faux fur for some added coziness.
La Canadienne ‘Berkley’ Waterproof Boot, $395
These wedge waterproof boots are perfect for the woman who won’t give up a heel even in a foot of snow. They look like regular, everyday black boots, but are waterproof, so you can wear them from now all the way through April’s spring showers. Bonus: Add a pair of cashmere socks to any of these boots and you’ll be in heaven!
