Here are our go-to-pairs for the winter suggested by fashion experts.
A good pair of Chelsea splits the difference between summer and fall, as well as formal and informal, proving both versatile and effortlessly stylish. While Chelsea can come in either suede or smooth leather, the typical pair includes a leather sole, rounded toe box, and minimal stitching. Pair them with everything from ripped denim to Italian suiting, fitting both streetwear and formal styles with ease. They’re effortlessly trendy footwear and easy to wear.
Dark colored sneakers
Also, invest in a pair of classic black sneakers. They will go well with your winter wardrobe and compliment all your shades of grey or black. From high tops to slip ons to lace-ups, there is so much you can choose from.
Chukka style-boots are perhaps the most versatile of all boot styles – they can be worn both casually and can be dressed up with ease because of their low profile and simple design. They are trendy footwear with traditional earth tones; feel free to get a bit more adventurous with bolder colors.
High top sneakers
If you have been eyeing that high top pair, now is your chance to get it. This trendy footwear will keep your feet warm and at the same time add to your style quotient. Mix and match the print or the fabric of the shoe to suit your requirement: from leather to suede or print to plain.
Since lace-up boots are similar to dress shoes, they share a simple aesthetic that’s easy to pair with a far wider range of outfits. They are smart and timeless classics. These boots add more class to even those tired or unoriginal outfits. That is why they’re reliable all-around. Dress it up with a suit or down with a black quilted leather bomber jacket and charcoal wool trousers to showcase your sartorial self. Dark brown leather dress trendy footwear will add some edge to an otherwise classic look.
* Technical solutions: When buying shoes in the winter, focus on keeping your feet warm. Look for sneakers with some tech in them: bonded seams or sealed seams take care of small pockets of space where water or air can get in or winterized soles which help you through wet and icy conditions.(IANS)

The author who named the book after her twin sons -- Puhor and Niyor -- is a parent who has seen and heard the tales of ridicule and discrimination suffered by many in India and beyond. She says the book is an artistic illustration for kids that details how different families can live and coexist. Whether it's children with two dads or two moms, children with a single dad or single mom, and even multiracial family units, Borthakur's book teaches love, understanding, and compassion towards unconventional families.
Beyond race, gender, color, and ethnicity which have formed the bases for discrimination since the beginning of time, this book aims to bring to light a largely ignored issue. For so long, single parents have been treated like a taboo without any attempt to understand their situations; no one really cares how or why one's marriage ended but just wants to treat single parents as villains simply for choosing happiness and loving their children.
Homosexual parents, a relatively new family system, is another form that has suffered hate and discrimination for many years. Pritisha emphasizes the need to understand that diversity in people and family is what makes the world beautiful and colourful. 'Puhor and Niyor's Mural of Family Stories' is a firm but compassionate statement against all forms of discrimination on the bases of sexual identity, gender, race, and even differences in background
The Guwahati-born author says, "With this book, I'm not trying to take away the job of parents in forming habits, I simply want to do my part as a parent. It is important that we impart the right values in our kids in a bid to build a better, more inclusive and tolerant global society that is fair to everyone." The author's first attempt at a book was an Assamese poetry 'Anubhav', published in 2010.
Set to be published under the label of Author's Channel, the book is like an adventure; a journey into uncharted territories, untouched subjects and matters long ignored. In her words. "The book takes a critical stand in defense of people in society who have had to undergo severe emotional torture for no cause of theirs. It is a terrible conception to think such people any less of a human just for being different," says publisher Aruna Naidu. By September 30, this title, priced at Rs 299, will be available online and in offline bookstores. (IANS/ MBI)
Rajesh U Pandya, Managing Director, KAI India, gives easy and completely doable tips to follow at home:
* Refrain from harsh soaps: You should be mindful of the soap you are using to wash your hands. Your soap can have a moisturizing element in it like aloe vera or shea butter. Ensure that you're washing your hands with normal water as hot water can make your hand's skin dry and scaly.
