One second I’m sashaying to the car like a supermodel on the catwalk and the next I’m whimpering on the ground.
It was just summer.
The beautiful angelic but oh so cold snow has made its way inside my cute ankle boots. At least I’ll look amazing on stage for my speech even if my socks are wet and cold.
I hope I don’t get the flu.
I’m NOT wading through this disgusting mess and ruining my new tall boots.
They are perfect for snow and ice, but not made for a foot of slush.
Darling husband comes to the rescue.
Lifts me up as if I’m light as Kate Moss and stomps down the driveway like a handsome NYPD firefighter who’s just rescued a gorgeous and mysterious lady.
This is SO romantic.
We make it all the way to the car and then SPLASH we’re neck-deep in slush.
The watery ice slides down my back and I desperately try to keep it out of my hair.
Who leaves a skateboard in the driveway so it’s hidden underneath the snow?
I’m calling in sick!
A warm bed, cozy coffee, Wifi.
“Yes, I would love to speak at your event, but I’m not getting out of bed until April.”
No need for NYPD because the Fashion Rescue Team is here!
The Guide to Winter Boots and How to Style Them has been released and I can be warm, dry, comfy, and chic all winter long.
It’s a miracle but it’s actually true.
Read on and find out how to survive slush, ice, and snow while looking stylish and beautiful.
Walking the streets in winter can make you think there’s a penalty for wearing something other than black.
Don’t forget there are other options, also when it comes to winter boots. You might have to look around a bit more though. I ordered my beige boots online in 2 different sizes and returned the pair that didn’t fit. Easy!
These boots are all light-colored, but not so delicate that they’ll get dirty that easily. Give them a light spraying with a water repellent since this will keep them nice and clean longer.
I love wedges since they give me a sexy height while still being super comfortable.
Check out these cool winter versions. I think I NEED a pair of Lea’s from Sorel.
Light neutral colors look amazing against the beautiful white snow. The light bounces of the light colors and brights up your day when it’s cold and dark outside.
This is a great look for anyone who loves a minimalist style:
A head-to-toe outfit in more or less the same color looks modern, stylish and intentional. If you keep your colors neutral it’s easy to experiment with textures and fabric.
Check out the rock’ n roll feather coat looking classy in dusty pink.
High heels and fancy styles can also work on snow. Sturdy rubber soles worthy of a lumberjack keeps you from sliding on ice, and the heels can be awesome for digging into the ice for a great grip.
Some of these boots are warm and comfy with a fake fur lining, and some are better suited for temperatures above freezing.
They look great with skinnies, wide pants, boot cuts, and skirts. Very versatile style.
Sturdy, heeled boots can be dressed up or down.
This is a typical smart casual outfit with basic pieces in striking colors. Notice how the accessories make simple garments look classy but also interesting.
Wintery accessories worthy of a Russian princess such as the fake fur hat and the chic gloves create a sophisticated look. (So much better than your husband’s old hat and your kid’s scarf.)
Sticking to 3 colors in an outfit is a simple principle that always works. Notice how the cream color makes the outfit more luxurious than if it was only black and pink.
Winter boots can often look too bulky and don’t always work with a professional-looking outfit, so I have found some minimalist and sleek styles.
The tall boots look amazing with skinnies and skirts, while you can also wear wide pants with ankle boots. Play around with wool socks and insulation inlays if your boots aren’t warm enough.
This outfit is super warm and comfy without sacrificing color and style.
Black boots, bag, and down jacket might be something you already have in your wardrobe but you can spruce them up and make them stylish and exciting.
Personally I’m always on the lookout for sweaters, skirts, dresses, and tights in wool. Unfortunately, there are a lot of acrylic blends out there. I prefer at least 60 % wool or you won’t stay warm.
Adding accessories in happy colors is an easy way to take your outfit to another level and brighten up everyone’s day.
If your city is cold but without a lot of snow and ice then you can go for a thinner heel.
60’s and 70’s styles are also lovely. Perfect for all kinds of skirts and pants.
If you have trouble fitting into tall boots you can check out Zappos.com. They have an option where you can search for boots by calf circumference. Very handy!
Curvy women look SO incredibly beautiful in a 50’s look.
This is a terrific style because it’s super feminine but also polished and professional.
The fact that it’s classic makes it well worth buying high-quality clothes since unlike trendy items you can keep them for years.
Vintage shopping is also a great option.
Biker boots are cool and comfy and are perfect for the androgynous trend we have going on at the moment.
They are a great way for any jean lovers to upgrade their look, and the sturdy flat heels make it a joy to be moving around.
The buckles can be a bit of a handful when you’re in a rush to get out of the house, so look for boots that can be opened with a zipper. Lots of buckled styles have this option.
Jeans and boots can often look a bit unintentional but keeping to a narrow color scheme and making sure accessories look neat and intentional makes a huge difference.
This look is also very stylish with practical and comfy down jackets, moto jackets, parkas, and shearling.
Desert boots and Doc Martens are another breeds of practical boyfriend boots.
They come in loads of colors and textures so it’s definitely an opportunity to get creative.
Skinny jeans are the obvious choice for these boots but they also look wonderful with skirts and dresses.
I have to admit I love these mittens. They are super cute and much more interesting than gloves. Mittens also keep you warmer since the fingers keep each other snug and cozy.
Check out the bomber jacket with the long rib dress. Great silhouette.
Did you know you can get winter sneakers?
Combine the cushy comfort of your favorite Nike’s with some extra padding and you have a light wonderful boot. My favorites come in black and white, which is easy to style in a sophisticated sports look.
Winter sportswear can actually be feminine.
I love slim-fitting down jackets with skinnies and a lovely sweater that hugs your curves.
Taking the time to find cute and well thought out accessories is absolutely worth it. Here’s another example of using 3 colors in an outfit. It really works!
How can you look and feel like a fun, sexy superstar in the snow?
Moon Boots of course!
The truth is I have never owned a pair, but I might just jog down to the mall and get some.
The soundtrack for my jog: Funkytown.
Nothing says Bond Babe like a metallic down jacket.
If you want to get sporty? Why not go all the way!
You may have noticed I’m madly in love with winter white. It looks so fresh and sophisticated, and personally I don’t want to spend the winter months wearing depressing dark colors.
White is also a great base color that goes with everything.
Imagine riding a dog sleigh through a moonlit winter wonderland while you’re snug and warm in the cutest winter boots possible.
I love these sporty and hyper-functional styles in light wintery colors that match the pretty snow. If you want to stay warm, dry, and comfy then these are the very best types to go for.
They are waterproof and some of them even have a rubber edge on the foot area. They are properly insulated for extreme cold, and the soles are safe on ice and snow.
The key to looking stylish in functional sportswear is to push your look to the limit.
Pretend you’re skiing to the North Pole and pick up accessories on the way.
Here’s a mix of different knitting patterns that originate from different parts of the world. The thing that makes them work so well together is the fact that they’re in the same color palette.
I’m so curious to hear what you think!
