Snow Boots Can be Sexy–The Perfect 10
This is slightly from the sublime to the ridiculous, going from sparkle party shoes one day to snow and sheepskin boots the next, but having looked at the weather in the UK (I’m currently in Dallas) and realising that the brrrr factor of bare legs was probably getting to everyone I thought I’d give you my thoughts on how this type of boots can be sexy, as I truly believe they can, provided you wear them with the right clothes.
The barn that I live in in the UK requires warm lined boots quite often through November to late February, and not being one of those who likes to change their footwear all the time I think it’s very important to wear something you feel good in if you’re outside or walking in through the door. Well when isn’t it?
From the snow boot point of view I look for something that isn’t too heavy, is knee high, that will take the cold outside and be wearable for a short while inside (not on carpet, obviously, although you don’t tend to find much of that in a barn) and do the business if you happen to have the white stuff outside.
So these are my ten of the best this season, that will look good on your legs, that will stop you from slip sliding around, and keep you warm wherever you are.
On the point of what to wear them with, balance chunky snow or sheepskin boots with skinny stretch pants (as they do in every ski resort), a slimming roll neck cashmere or ribbed merino sweater, a shearling vest if you have one or a short, waisted (not belted) down jacket in any colour you choose. I, of course, always go for black.
