This time of year, everyone needs sturdy boots for braving the elements — a pair that's cool but not too fancy (so you don't feel guilty when they're covered in mud). These & Other Stories boots fit the bill: The metallic silver leather and stacked heels are usual, and the rubber sole provides defense against the impending snow and slush. Wear them with your thickest tights, socks, and winter jacket, and consider yourself prepared.
Silver Lace-up Leather Boots, $225 at & Other Stories.
