Female winter office footwear

Ladies, what shoes do you wear to the office during winter time? It's very cold for regular heals. Do you just wear sneakers/boots and change once indoors? Have you managed to style boots with suits and other office wear? I would appreciate any tips!

There have to be better places to post this topic than WSO...  It is kind of funny, though.  I will give you a SB for having a good sense of humor.

WSO is actually the best. All I could find elsewhere is advice from women working in more relaxed fields. Their outfit suggestions aren't great for lawyers, bankers... ;)

Knee-high boots and Timberlands in the office? Wouldn't that look not so professional?

Heeled leather ankle boots. they're decently warm and gives you a bit of height if you have to walk on snow. one wipe and you're office-ready

What type of trousers do you pair those boots with? I don't think it goes with suits.

make sure to buy a pair that is more synched by the ankles, that way if you wear a pair of trousers, the top of the boot doesn't poke through - you could totally get away with wearing that underneath a paid of trousers.

Get a pair that's all leather, so it doesn't look bulky

Depends on what garment you pair it with.

Very long elegant trousers that cover the feet >> pointy boot, rest is hidden anyway and it elongates the leg

Long skirt  / flowy dress >> knee-high leather boots

On a Friday in the UK: thin dark blue pants >> riding boots for an equestrian style.

Keep a bunch of heels under your desk so you can swap if you need to see a client or management.

+tip: I have ballerina-shaped black slippers that I only wear under my desk when noone sees and the guys turn on the aircon

Really recommend keeping a pair of comfy loafers and heels at your desk for whenever you have meetings with clients. Otherwise, I wear leather ankle heel boots to the office during the colder months (mine are called the Sam Edelman Regaen Bootie and they're great).
