The first winter I moved back to Michigan, from Nevada, I made sure that the first pair of winter shoes I bought were a cute pair of snow boots. If you live somewhere that gets snow, this is probably one of the most important parts of your winter wardrobe, besides a warm coat. I love my tall snow boots from JustFab because they are really cute, but also warm. I typically always wear my tall snow boots with leggings or sometimes skinny jeans. That makes it easy to keep your pants nice and dry. I also have a pair of shorter duck boots that I will wear from time to time. I mostly like these boots for when the parking lots are still wet and slushy, but I don’t feel the need to wear my tall boots.
Combat boots/ Chelsea boots
Combat boots and Chelsea boots are very trendy at the moment. I love my Chelsea boots that I shared in my post Trends to Try-Chelsea Boots. They have been a popular shoe in my winter wardrobe so far this year. These are the boots that I wear when I want something practical on my feet, but I also want to look cute and put together. These boots aren’t necessarily waterproof boots, but they do keep my feet dry and I will wear them when there is snow on the ground or messy slush. I usually wear them with my Spanx Faux Leather Leggings or a pair of cropped skinny jeans.
Over the Knee/ Knee High Boots
I love practical boots in the winter, but I also love a cute pair of fashion boots that you can dress up. I have a few pairs of boots like this. I thrifted a pair of knee-high boots (Similar boots) that I like because they have a thick heel that dresses them up but also keeps them practical for walking in. I also have a pair of over-the-knee boots from Target. I love this pair of boots because they have a flat heel, which makes them much more practical for my daily mom life. I often wear these boots with my faux leather leggings and a cozy sweater or I will dress them up with a skirt or a dress.
I love to wear sneakers in the winter. They are a great option for wearing with my cropped straight-leg jeans. I also wear them with joggers and leggings. I recently had a comment about how having your ankle showing in the winter can be too cold to wear. I agree that it can be a little chilly on very cold winter days, however, I don’t wear sneakers and cropped jeans when it’s very cold and snowy outside. I would most likely wear this style of outfit on a warm/dry winter day. To me, a warm winter day means at least 30 degrees, and the sidewalks are clear of any kind of snow or slush. I find that as long as I am warm on the top, having a bare ankle doesn’t bother me much. I’ve learned that coats, hats, and gloves are the most important parts of my winter outfit for keeping me warm. As long as I am buddled up on top, my bare ankles aren’t a problem.
Booties are another form of winter shoe that I like to wear. I usually style my booties with jeans, both straight-leg, and skinny jeans. I will also wear them with leggings and dresses. I love wearing my black booties with a pair of black tights. They are a great way to dress up an outfit when it’s cold outside.
