Choosing footwear to suit an outfit can be a difficult decision as it is. And throwing some snow into the mix leaves us flummoxed as to what will keep our feet dry, prevent us from slipping over and still look chic. Cue: Hello! Fashion's round-up of effortlessly stylish snow boots.
Practicality doesn’t need to override appearance, as we’ve found the best boots to stay equally as warm and sophisticated as possible. Thankfully, our favourite designers are also sartorially savvy with footwear suitable for the frosty weather.
Cult classic brands are always a reliable source of winter footwear. If trending treds is how you prefer to search, influencer favourites like UGG and Moon Boot have ample options to keep your feet current. Brands like Penelope Chilvers and Camilla Elphick - both favourites of the Princess of Wales' - also have snowshoe options fit for a queen. Or, if splurging on one piece of footwear to reuse every year is more your thing, then high-end heroes such as Isabel Marant, and Gucci have some super chic options to make your feet feel a million dollars.
How we chose:
Practicality: Though the focus of this piece is chic footwear, there is also no compromise on practicality. All of the footwear included is waterproof, lined for warmth and suitable for walking in the snow, be it on the slopes or in the streets.
Budget: I've found a range of pieces that are practical and stylish for every budget. Starting at £45, these pieces go to around £880.
Style: I chose an array of boots in various colours and silhouettes, offering a wide range of choices. Drawing on my expertise in fashion, I constantly stay abreast of the latest trends. In this roundup, I've meticulously chosen styles from both high-end and high-street brands. Though all of the snow boots below are fashionable right now, I've chosen ones in styles that reflect current trends, anticipate future ones, or possess timeless appeal.
How to Style Snow Boots:
Consider the colour of your snow boots: Neutral colours like black, grey, or brown are versatile and can easily match with various winter outfits. Make sure your winter coat complements your snow boots. Coordinating colours or styles can tie your entire winter look together. Create a sleek and sophisticated appearance by wearing similar shades from head to toe. This can make you look taller and slimmer while maintaining a polished winter style
Layer with Socks And Leggings: Add some personality with cozy, textured, or patterned socks that peek out at the top of your snow boots. This can be a fun way to incorporate your personal style. Tuck leggings into your snow boots to create a streamlined look. This not only keeps your legs warmer but also adds a chic touch.
Incorporate Textures: Mix and match textures to add visual interest to your outfit. For example, pair your snow boots with a chunky knit sweater or a faux fur-trimmed coat.
