Boots are staple footwear for the chillier months and can go way beyond functionality, turning an ordinary outfit into a trend setting, drop-dead-gorgeous look of the season. Here's the scoop on boots for the upcoming months.
They make look like loaves of bread, but the original Ugg boots were all the rage when they were first spotted on celebrity feet a few years ago. The question is, are they still hot? If you've got a pair of the original fleece lined suede boots, don't throw them out. Functionally, they're near unbeatable. If you own a pair, I don't have to tell you how comfortable they are, and how they keep your feet at a constant, comfortable temperature.
As for style, although the classic Ugg boot isn't "hot" this winter, an array of new variations speak to current footwear trends. Check out the best new shoes offered by the Australian company here.
Flat boots are hot this season, there's no doubt about it, yet there's something unabashedly sexy about a killer pair of heeled boots too. Check out the gallery for some of the top looks of the season.
