Stepping into an unsuspecting puddle on your way to class in the morning can throw off your whole day. Not only are your feet wet, but you’ve ruined your brand new flats! Be prepared next time by making sure you have a pair of super cute yet durable pair of boots that will get you through the rain, slush or snowy days that lie ahead. Waterproof boots don’t have to be hideous to be useful. In fact, the chicest ones may make you want to step out in them even when it’s not raining. We’ve picked out the most fashionable boots out there, so check them out!
1. Veletto Rainboot – Vince Camuto ($125)
With these hip moto boots, you’ll be wishing it rained more often. This mid-calf boot is super edgy, with the small heel that will give you a bit of a boost and the rubber studs that you may only used to seeing on a leather pair.
2. Contrast Top Riding Rainboots – Delia’s ($49.90)
This pair of rainboots can double as a casual riding boot since they hardly look like they’re made of rubber! The streamlined shape gives a bit more of a fitted look and the contrasting faux-leather panel adds a more elegant touch to the otherwise plain rubber boot shafts.
3. Rain Fenton – Loeffler Randall ($195)
Okay, so these are definitely a splurge for a small pair of rain booties, but you won’t regret it if you buy them. The slim fit shoe offers a tailored look and the gold buckle detailing will make your rainy day outfit stand out from the crowd.
4. Dreech Boots – Steve Madden ($89.95)
We tend to shy away from wearing rainboots that are too colorful and bold (they remind us of the pink or yellow boots we had in our childhood), but this pair is an option that takes the middle road. The pair, which also comes in a wine color, has a nice pop of color on the zipper that is still subtle. The cute buckles also allow you to adjust them to your liking.
5. Plask Mid Rainboots – Tretorn ($85)
Rainboots have a connotation of being dull and bulky. These “boots” are a twist on your waterproof shoe since they look like wedges, but can still endure rain. Combined with the gunmetal color, the contrasting platforms offer a utilitarian yet feminine look.
Having a set of reliable boots that won’t disintegrate in the rain means you no longer have to fear yucky weather (and you also can freely jump in puddles like a 5-year-old)!
