Originally hailing from Southern California, I’ve done my share of eye rolling when I see girls break out their rain boots once the weather dips below 75 degrees. Since moving to one of the rainiest regions in the country, however, I’ve discovered just how necessary they are. In the constant downpour, they’re possibly my favorite and most essential piece for keeping dry on a dreary, rainy day. This week’s Fashionista is rocking a darling pair of wellies, showing how easy and functional they can be.
While there are so many patterns and choices of rain boots available, sometimes it can be hard to pull off a pair without looking too childish. Our stylish student of the week picked a black pair that went seamlessly with her outfit. Her choice of boots in a dark color kept her looking chic and understated, but well prepared for the impending rain. Since there are so many choices for rain boots, I’ll just lead you in the direction of my favorites. My holy grail pair of wellies are these structured, sleek Original Rain Boots from Hunter. They are simple, but very flattering and come in an array of hues. For those of us that prefer a shorter boot, these Loeffler Randall booties are killer. If you're looking for more of a statement boot, try this super cute Splendid pair.
Fellow Fashionistas, I can’t believe I ever thought rain boots were so frivolous. There have been many times where I’ve walked into giant puddles on campus, soaking my jeans and my favorite boots, and wished I had been better prepared There is such an array of different styles that cater to virtually any taste, including lace-ups, riding or motorcycle boots, sophisticated patterns and even heeled versions to update this classic accessory for those cloudy, rainy months.
