It's almost that time of year. When the flats that you have been wearing to work every day, are suddenly leaving your ankles frozen. And while we still have a few good weeks left, cold weather is right around the corner.

And sadly, you can't just hibernate in your apartment until sandal weather rolls back around.

Because I know you want to.

But back to shoes.

What is the winter equivalent of the flat

Last week I got talking to my sister-in-law about this particular footwear conundrum. What are the best work appropriate boots? There's a lot out there, but it can be hard to find the one that feels at home in the office. You don't want anything to blingy, or trendy. And if you're like me and spend a lot of time on your feet, you probably don't want it to be in a three inch heel.

So, this is by no-means a comprehensive list, but they are some of my favorites.

A few break the rules. Some notes on that…

The simpler the better. In general, I would steer clear of flash details or logos in the office. But I love these Loeffler Randalls. Maybe you work in fashion and can rock them.

Stacked heels tend to be more comfortable, supportive and work-appropriate than their stiletto counterparts. Stilettos are fine in pumps, but in a boot, they can get all lady-of-the-night pretty quickly.

Flats are king. In my old age I have realized that running around in heels tends to bother my lower back the next day. And now that I'm old and wise, I realize it isn't worth it. I have worn these Frye boots year after year and they never bother me.

It's not just cold weather. We also get that fun snow-slush stuff going which means a multi-tasking pair of boots in a lifesaver. These rain boots are so chic you wouldn't even have to change when you get to the office.
