- A column of black with fuzzy brown trim and a hint of white.
- A combination of cold and warm dark neutrals.
Repeating the colours of the snow boots as accents in other parts of the outfit is one way of pulling together the look. That way your outfit will look fashionably intentional, and you’ll feel more polished despite the clompy snow boots.
I created two outfits to get you started. The one on the left is a little more sporty and casual because of the puffer coat and extra bulky snow boots. The outfit on the right is slightly dressier with a wool coat and more streamlined duck boots. Both outfits are about pairing very warm, chunky knitwear with jeans and their support acts.
A Column of Colour with Textural Accents
It’s easy to create an almost-all-black look with a black puffer coat. Combine black jeans with a chunky black pullover, black puffer, and black snow boots. The furry liners are key to the outfit because of their textural interest, which breaks up the black. Furthermore, the fur adds a set of light neutral tones that can be repeated elsewhere in the outfit, like in the trim of the coat’s hood. The white stripes of the boots are repeated in the knitted hat and trim of the mittens. Finish off the look with a bag of your choice.
You can break up the column of colour by wearing a white or taupe pullover to match the fur of the boots. Or add a scarf in those lighter neutral shades.
Although I’ve used black here, you can create a column of colour with a pair of dark blue jeans, a navy pullover, ink blue puffer coat, and navy snow boots. Pick up the colours of the trim of the snow boots as accent colours in the rest of the outfit.
Grey & Brown with Textural Accents
Snow boots work just as well with wool coats (if those keep you adequately warm in a snowy climate). Combine a pair of blue jeans with a chunky grey pullover, a grey wool coat, and brown duck boots. The two-toned brown duck boots are key because they allow you to repeat those shades in the rest of the outfit. Add a scarf, bag, hat and gloves that pick up the browns of the snow boots. Finish off the look with jewellery, watch and eyewear as desired.
I used grey and brown in the second outfit, but you can choose other colours. As long as you repeat the colours of the snow boots in other parts of the outfit, you’ll create a cohesive look.
Wear thermal underwear, woolly long socks, and toe and hand warmers for extra warmth. And thaw with plenty of hot drinks and snacks indoors when the layers come off.
