Millie Bobby Brown sent our hearts aflutter when she rocked a pair of white Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Low Tops with her millennial pink sequined Calvin Klein by Appointment frock at the 2018 SAG Awards, and now Busy Philipps took a page from the Stranger Things actress’ comfy-cute playbook by wearing a pair of floral Dr. Marten combat boots to the 2018 People’s Choice Awards on Sunday, November 11. The difference? Brown’s kicks were perfect for spring and summer, but Philipps has Us covered for winter.

The Busy Tonight late-night host hit the red carpet at the fan-voted show in a black tie-worthy tiered tulle skirt by Christian Siriano that she paired with a matching turtleneck, Lala Lexa clutch and Irene Neuworth statement necklace. While the look was all kinds of modern sophistication, Philipps added a bit of her signature cool-girl edge to the ensemble with her chunky boots.

Rather than color coordinate her all-black everything ensemble with a pair of matching lace-ups, the former Dawson’s Creek actress’ stylist Karla Welch opted for a flower power edition complete with the iconic Dr. Martens ‘90s-era lugged sole.

During her interview on the red carpet with Giuliana Rancic, Philipps joked that she needed to wear the form-meets-function footwear in order to survive her quick turnaround between the People’s Choice Awards and the live taping of her show just hours later, but we think the look is all kind of cold-weather glam inspo.

Whether you’re rocking a ball gown-inspired full skirt like the TV personality or a sparkly short and sweet mini, combat boots provide a practical *and* statement-making alternative to heels, booties and all the other uncomfortable shoe options we’re used to suffering through for the sake of style.
