We don't know about you, but this is the time of year when we get really excited about getting dressed every day. The art of piling on layers, the lure of cashmere, the search for the softest, snuggliest fabrics ever — these are the things that get us jazzed about throwing open our closet each morning.But, despite our enthusiasm, we're always stumped by one cold-weather conundrum — finding winter dresses that work with our favorite go-to boots. At least for now, you can pull out last summer's sundress and add thick tights and your best equestrian-inspired kicks. But when it gets really chilly, you'll want a serious shift that can pull its weight against freezing temps and look adorable with your favorite ankle booties or over-the-knee stunners. And so, with that in mind, we've gathered up our favorite heavy-duty (but super-chic) winter dresses that will pair perfectly with your best boots.
