This Season’s Most Fashionable Winter Boots for Women
The key to packing for a ski trip is to think about two scenarios: a day on the slopes and an evening après-ski.
When planning your après-ski wardrobe you should always begin with the boot, because what sensation is more dire than getting your feet out of those horribly rigid and painful ski boots? Just about any other boot you put on after that will feel like a pillow of clouds.
But we urge you to be thoughtful and think strategically about the shoe you're racing to slip into, because those one or two drinks après-ski at the lodge might turn into eight or nine and take you into the night.
So while comfort is key after a long day on the slopes, style shouldn't be compromised either. Thankfully, with this season’s abundance of stylish boot options, it doesn't have to be. Here, a round-up of the 10 chicest winter boots for your upcoming ski trip.
In addition to the popular opinion that there's no boot cozier than an Ugg boot, this style by Ugg has sealed seams so water can't get in. It also has a strong sole so it will keep you safe during your full night of après-ski festivities.
