The Trick To Elevating Your Winter Look In Seconds

Just because the frigid winter (and way-too-early sunsets) have unceremoniously arrived, doesn’t mean it’s time to resort back to a life of sweats and beat-up sneakers 24/7. Choosing the right footwear for winter is an easy way to make any outfit look put together (yes, even your pajamas-turned-WFH clothes). Our go to: the stacked range of rugged-chic (and low-key comfortable) boots from FRYE — the Americana heritage brand that's been making boots for the last 150-plus years — that will make you look like you’re making an effort this winter, without you actually exerting yourself at all.
Built to withstand the elements and drastic swings in trends, these boots are the embodiment of anti-fast fashion while continuing to offer a plethora of styles to fit every aesthetic.
For a retro-cool look, try a modern Victorian lace-up and stacked heel bootie or brushed leather cowboy boot inspired by vintage moto jackets. Paired with your favorite slouchy jeans (or countering a cottagecore maxi-dress), both styles can take you from errand runs to fire pit hangouts with friends. Likewise, a Chelsea-cowboy hybrid bootie, a posh yet rugged equestrian tall boot, or suede ankle booties with a cool architectural heel will elevate your outfit for outdoor heat lamp-lit dinner dates or social-distanced gatherings — and prove just as functional on long walks for much-needed fresh air.
