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.
