Boots are a staple of any winter wardrobe. When you have to deal with snow, sleet, and cold, you want a nice pair of casual boots you can count on. Dressy boots are important too, but you need a pair of classic styled winter boots that will look great with your casual plus size clothing all season long. Here are some ideas for how to choose the right pair.

What is the weather like in your area? If you get little or no snow, ankle high boots should be fine. But if you will have to hoof it through the snow rather often, opt for mid-calf or knee boots. My preference is a simple black knee boot. They are warm, match just about every outfit, and keep my feet safe from the wet and snow.

Don’t forget to make sure your boots are waterproof and have good traction for walking in the snow, ice, and rain. Insulated boots are the best for cold climates. If you have a hard time finding the right boots in your size, try shopping online. That way you can find the perfect winter boots to fit your casual plus size clothing.
