The 10 Cutest Boots for Chilly Days Ahead
A few scenarios we, here on the East Coast, have recently found ourselves in:
It's freezing cold and you have to walk to the subway and go straight to a big meeting. Your beloved classic Ugg boots not permitted.
It's freezing cold out and you have a date, but don't want to ruin those suede pumps you invested in a few months ago.
You simply HATE clunky (but oh so warm) snow boots.
Have no fear. The InStyle Fashion Team is here! And guess what? Yes, there are super warm snow boots that won't leave you looking like whatever it is your dad looks like when he walks the family dog during a snowstorm.
