I really need a good pair of warm, waterproof snow boots for the winter...oh yeah, did I mention affordable (under $100)? All the ones I have seen aren't exactly "chic." I also need a winter coat. I have a peacoat..but everyone says it wont be enough. I like to stay neutral so black, grey, camel would be preferred (but I also love pink!). I am a budget fashionista so please keep that in mind. I really hope you can help this Southern Belle get ready for NYC's winter wonderland!
Hi Kasey! Layla here to help. I'm a native of New York who recently transplanted to the wilds of Minnesota, so you can consider me an expert on brutal Winter weather! I've got you covered with some cold weather gear! Covered...get it? Two pieces of advice for ya: Down-filled coats with hoods will be your best bet for warmth, and if you can splurge on the boots, the mukluks below by far the best things you can put on your feet (buy a size bigger than usual to get the most warmth out of them)! Hope this helps you survive your first NYC winter!
