Das Winter Boot ?
Sorel boots have always been the snow boot of choice—their tried and true insulated inserts and waterproof rubber toes ($95 and up) have kept feet frostbite-free for generations. Well, now it’s time to get funky. The Joan of Arctic boot features a cuff of faux fur peeking out of the top of the suede upper boot while sturdy leather D-rings keep it all tied together. The Tivoli boot is lined in fleece and adopts a more street-tough look with bright colors mixed with punky tweed and herringbone. ?

Where My Wild Things At? ?
Though technically not a movie tie-in, these hand-woven Peruvian hats ($34) are monstrously adorable and look so close to the real fake Wild Things, maybe they should have come with a ticket to a matinee. Buggy eyes, pointy ears, long tassels and sticking tongues will turn any cranky tyrant into a contented tyke. Most are sized for kid heads, but you may get lucky and find one big enough for your own crown.
