Collegiette Major Must-Have: Rain Boots

Posted -

It’s 8 a.m. and the annoying *beep beep beep* coming from your iPhone lets you know it’s time to get up. And although your brand-new iPhone 5 is very smart, there is one thing Siri can’t help you with; the torrential downpour occurring outside. It’s days like these that you refresh your email wondering if class could possibly be cancelled due to excessive rain.

The bad news is that class probably won’t be cancelled. The good news is that with the right pair of rain boots you’ll look cute and stay dry on your way to class. You might even look forward to rainy days!

The Original

Never fear, Hunter boots are here. Look around on a rainy day, and chances are you’ll spot a handful of collegiettes sporting Hunter boots. With so many colors and styles to choose from you’ll be able to find the perfect pair for you (and all of your outfits). If you’re going to buy the boots you mine as well invest in a pair of Hunter rain boot socks. Keep it classy with cable knit, spice things up with stripes, unleash your wild side with cheetah… or just buy all of them.

Fun, Flirty, and Hoosier Approved

As an IU student, cream and crimson are probably a common color scheme in your wardrobe.The bow placed on the side of the boots will give your outfit a flirty, feminine flair.
