It’s raining, it’s pouring, how do I keep my outfit from looking boring? By adding a pair of rain boots, of course! Not only are these waterproof wonders perfect for keeping dry, they also add a little pizzazz to your dull rainy day attire.
Rain boots are the only exception for footwear to be as completely chaotic as the weather. You can add a splash of color to any outfit with a bright pink and purple pair or a touch of whimsicality with a colorful polka dot pattern. Theycome in a variety of different colors to choose from at an affordable college girl price! For those of you who are looking for something a little classier though, stick with a singular color that will match almost any outfit like gray or a deep green. You can also try a more mature pattern, such as hounds tooth or plaid. If you’re looking for a great durable pair of rain boots, check out websites like Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom.
To add a little more color to your newly developed rainy day look, why not find an umbrella that complements your beautiful boots? Not only are umbrellas a necessity for college but they’re also a very functional accessory! This Fashionista is rocking the rainy day look with her patterned umbrella and a neutral pair of rain boots. Rather than wearing them with the expected skinny jeans or leggings she’s taking a fashion risk and pairing them with light gray high-waisted shorts. To add a little emphasis on the boots, she’s also layered a pair of gray stockings underneath that barely peak out over the top.
Although summer has gone and rainy days are near, have no fear, Fashionistas! Or should I say, don’t be alarmed, because as long as you’re splashing around in a dashing pair of rain boots, you can stand under my Vera Bradley umbrella or better yet, let's just go singin' in the rain!
Spotted: Many designers are putting a twist on styles of rain boots this season. Marc Jacobs has added a chunky heel to his classic style and Michael Kors has new minis with a metal buckle on the outside for a grungy look.
