For the last few weeks, we've been faced with some serious arctic chill (literally) here at R29's NYC headquarters. Fortunately, though, we can't seem to get enough of winter-dressing essentials, which is why we've brought you snow boots, all-weather parkas, and tons more blizzard-appropriate buys. Clearly, we're more than prepared to take on any snowfall in the coming weeks.
But, in the interim — you know, those icy-cold yet perfectly sunny days — we still think our wardrobe should get a little reprieve. And, a trusty, knee-high boot makes for a stylish, practical look that'll keep our bottom halves warm — even when subzero temps strike. Ahead, we rounded up 12 rad pairs of these cold-weather staples, including lace-ups, zippers, buckles, and pull-ons. After all, we can't let winter completely cramp our style.
