Rain, rain, go away? No need to demand dry weather if you have a pair of rubber rain boots in your shoe collection. We were having a bit of a rainy day here in Austin and I  spotted this Fashionista strolling around campus when the weather lightened up. Her simple and classic outfit seemed so carefree paired with the versatile Hunter wellingtons

These boots aren't only restricted for farmers or torrential downpours. Although usually worn as protective gear, they add instant refinement to any cozy casual ensemble. Especially when it gets cooler out, adding these Hunter cable knit socks to peak out from your clean lined boot would make your even more classic. Rain boots have been making a leap from strictly rain gear to all-weather footwear. With rubber rain boots, there is no need to worry about scuffing or scratching away at leather or suede boots. Not to mention are they INCREDIBLY comfortable. So much walking can ruin not only your feet but the shoes you're walking around in. With wellies, there's no problem!

What's been helping make rain boots a star on the scene are music festivals like Glastonbury, Coachella and Austin City Limits. These festivals are like fashion shows within themselves, showcasing celebrities and others sporting their hippie world traveler wear. Many of these boho looks are accompanied by water and mud resistant wellies, making these boots not only a classic style staple but also a bohemian style staple. 

Looking for more than a classic get up? Sperry Top-Siders offers several different fun prints that really pop with a pair of slim and dark jeans tucked in! We're gearing up for cooler weather this coming season and our outift rotations absolutely call for boots. Try a rubber rain boot this fall!

Spotted: Dsquared² spring 2012 RTW collection exemplified music festival style. The boho-chic looks were completed with high heeled wellies!
