Sensibly Chic

It is a challenge to dress stylishly when stepping into 18 inches of snow. The keys are layers and sensible boots. I very much noticed girls in Hamburg schlepping through the snowy Straße in skinny jeans tucked into tall, tight wellies with a treaded sole.

Although the Wellington is most closely associated with British style and history, French-made Aigle and Le Chameau are giving Hunter a run for its money.

I don't care that Spring is six weeks away, and that the Fall 2010 shows commence this week. I need these boots and I need them now. Anything made to withstand the Pittsburgh weather is definitely an investment. I love pieces that are versatile and wearable for more than one season. Hunter has a fitted fleece welly sock layer that slips in and folds over. All of these encourage mucking around in city scape, countryside, snow or rain; or muddy rock concerts à la Kate Moss.
