When Joules sent over a pair of wellies last week, I had no idea I’d get the opportunity to wear them so soon! Aren’t they just the cutest way to brighten up a blustery winter day? I’ll admit that the color sucked me in initially, but the practical features made me truly fall in love with them. The boots have a slim ankle, but still adjust for shapely calves with the buckle at the side. And, while I was skeptical of the website’s claim to “exceptional cold weather resistance,” I was comfortable in the snow with just a pair of tights underneath. (That’s not something I can do with my Hunter pair without a thick pair of hiking socks for extra warmth.) Bottom line: thumbs up. Check out the full range of patterns and colors here.
The key to making autumn’s herd of animal sweaters from looking too cutesy lies in sophisticated separates. Wear these sweaters with a refined pencil skirt or this gorgeous faux leather skirt from Target. If you’re tempted to wear it with jeans, cuff the hem and don a pair of stellar heels.
