How to shop for: attractive snow boots

There’s a load of snow here in New York, which has inspired me to stay indoors and do nothing write about what’s acceptable when it comes to… snow boots!

Duck boots

Old school duck boots are back in a big way. I have to admit I kind of love them.

Brands to look for: L.L. Bean, Land’s End, Sokel

Plain and simple

Minimalism is also back–and always a safe, chic bet. Opt for a fun color (red looks great paired with muted winter coats), or trusted black in a slim, no-frills design.

Brands to look for: La Canadienne, Aquatalia

Something fun

As grown-ups, we realize snow basically sucks. So make at least some fun out of it with a boot that’s kind of hilarious. Fur is always a good choice, but make sure you find a pair that’s waterproof or can be protected with spray. And buy a dark color or you’ll just come off looking dirty.

Oh and…..

What to Avoid: Anything too complicated and mountain-climber-looking, heeled boots, and UGGs. Please, no UGGs.
