Any colour goes (although you may want to start thinking about next season's trends; try metallics á la Louis Vuitton and Loewe, or opt for bold hues as in the collections of Christopher Kane and Gucci), and the more exciting the texture, the better. Suede (or faux suede) is still very much 'a thing', but this year I'm in love with high-shine patent fabrics in pastels and brights.
Hate the idea of a cold commute? Match your boots with a faux fur jacket or chunky knit - and don't forget socks (no one likes sweaty boot feet). A slight heel is always elegant, if you can handle the ice; if not, try a cleated sole for extra grip.
