All too often, cooler weather equals drab colors. Monastic grays. Boring browns. And bleak blacks. But when Eva Mendes showed up one wet morning wearing a fresh yellow coat, she stood out like a ray of sunshine on a dreary day.

Some things never change. The fact that boots are a chilly weather staple is one of them. But as for the actual boot styles, those are ever-evolving! This season brings a slew of options, from the aptly dubbed "shootie" (shoe + bootie) to Victorian suede and sleek patent leather.
