A key component to perfecting your cold weather look is the right pair of boots. However, if you're still in the market for a snow-ready set to get you through the winter months unscathed, some of the best snow boots of the season have been rounded up for you, and they're just as stylish as they're practical.

One of the trickiest parts of shopping for a new pair of snow boots is securing a style that doesn't sacrifice fashion for function, and instead, finds a nice balance between the two. One boot that does this very well is the wildly popular Joan of Arctic waterproof snow boot from Sorel, $190. Rated just under five stars on Nordstrom, this chic black and stone iteration of the highly-reviewed boot will keep your feet warm and dry while its faux fur trim and lace-up detailing will allow you to trek through the slush and snow in style. For those that prefer a lighter hue, snag the Sorel style in this ivory colorway from Net-A-Porter.

Meanwhile, if you're partial to a tall boot but are seeking a more chic design, the super-sleek Insulated Tall Snow Boots from Hunter and the Logo-Appliquéd Quilted Leather Snow Boots from Prada are both great alternatives to more traditional styles. The durable leather boot of Prada's iteration has a drawstring cuff, insulating padding, and a chunky lug-sole that'll help you battle the elements in style from the daily commute to the ski mountain.

If you're hunting for a shorter style that'll really keep your toes warm on the coldest of days, consider snagging UGG's Birch Lace-Up Boot for $200. Made with waterproof suede, warm natural-wool lining, and 200 grams of insulation, this wear-with-everything snow boot can withstand temperatures as low as negative 25.6 degrees Fahrenheit.

The aforementioned styles are just the beginning when it comes to the offering of stylish snow boots currently up for grabs. Continue on to shop a pair that you won't feel the need to immediately slip out of once you reach your destination — in fact, you may just keep them on all day.
