It's actually impossible to think about getting through the winter months without the ideal pair of boots. Seriously—it would've been like getting through summer without the ideal miniskirt or off-the-shoulder top. While you may already have a few go-tos in your closet you've had for seasons—you know, the classic black booties and more weather-resistant silhouettes meant for harsher weather—there's actually a slew of other styles worth adding to your winter shoe rotation right now. In fact, after scrolling through recent images of some of our favorite celebrities, we realized there are actually six key styles the most stylish A-listers are wearing on repeat—we're talking everything from utility boots to festive styles to thigh-high stunners.
Interested in checking out the winter boots that are most popular right now? Keep scrolling to see the top styles of the moment. Plus, shop each for every budget as well.
The simplest way to make a statement? Slip into a gorgeous pair of metallic booties like Gigi Hadid. This is actually the ideal silhouette to wear right now for holiday party season.
On Gigi Hadid: Jacquie Aiche earrings; Brandon Maxwell top and skirt; Stuart Weitzman The Gigi Boot ($565).
This dramatic style reigned supreme last year—and it's not going anywhere this season. Follow Hailey's lead and try the lamp-shading look with a sweaterdress and an extra-long coat.
If there's one style you absolutely need to invest in this winter, it's a cool pair of moto boots. We love how Olivia styled the tougher silhouette here with a feminine ensemble for a balanced silhouette.
It's no secret that velvet is legit everywhere this season. If you really want to make a statement, try colorful velvet booties like Rihanna here. While this particular look is great for warmer weather (hey, L.A. friends!), you could pair your velvet kicks with cool jeans and a sweater for work or the weekend.
There's nothing more flattering than slim black booties. We suggest trying them with skinnies like Miranda is here to really showcase the silhouette.
On Miranda Kerr: Karen Walker Deep Worship Sunglasses ($280); Rockins Silk Scarf ($145); Mystylemode bodysuit; ThePerfext Leather Leggings ($1250); Saint Laurent Dylan Shoulder Bag ($1450); Tony Bianco Diddy Heel ($120).
There is nothing more forward right now than stepping out in a sleek pair of white ankle boots—so fresh.
On Kendall Jenner: The Row boots.
The fashion world loves these.
The studs give these even more of a cool edge.
While we clearly can't get enough of the moto boot silhouette, we're equally as into the heeled utility style Kate Bosworth is wearing here with her cropped flares and moto jacket.
On Kate Bosworth: M.i.h Jeans Arrow Flared Cropped Jeans ($285); Frame Shiny Leather Crop Jacket ($1025); Tod's Tasseled Leather Ankle Boots ($1155); Alexander Wang Attica Leather Shoulder Bag ($850).
