It’s easy to accept winter if you think of it in terms of clothes. A drop in temperatures, for example, could be imagined as an oversized Baby Alpaca sweater; that chapped-nipple feeling as nothing more than a pair of cashmere cable knit socks. Try diverting your attention away from the looming blizzards by instead zeroing in on a Céline muff that would prove extremely useful during such a time. And think not of your smooth legs that will, in a matter of weeks, turn dry, scaly and ashy. Instead, try concentrating on the array of over-the-knee boots that can easily shroud your flaky legs and keep you extra warm. K?

I don’t own a pair of over-the-knee boots but I intend to this year. I’ve always automatically rejected them as a plausible shoe option because the mere thought of trying to get them over a pair of pants already has me sweating. But as Dream would say: that was then, this is now. And right now I’m quite keen on the whole leather-as-a-second-skin motif. Choose a pair of over-the-knee boots in a basic color and design and pair it with any old dress or skirt and it’s practically impossible to go wrong.
