As for footwear, Philipps continued to keep warm with a pair of chunky Chelsea knee boots from Ganni. The rubber-trimmed footwear feature yellow stitching and are set atop thick 30mm heels. The style is currently available for $545 at Net-a-Porter.com.

This wouldn’t be the first time that Philipps wore the sleek boots. Earlier this month, Philipps showcased a bold colorful look, which included a rainbow fleece jacket from Farm Rio, which she styled over a mustard-colored henley from Madewell and a La DoubleJ patterned skirt. She completed her ensemble with the knee boots from Ganni.

When it comes to her personal style, Philipps is a free spirit. She often plays around with bold colors and mixes patterns with prints. Her wardrobe not only includes fun dresses, but also classic suiting and straight-leg denim. Some of her go-to brands include: Gucci, Wolford and Tamara Mellon. She also mixes in more affordable brands like J. Crew, making her closet the perfect example of high-low dressing.
