STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Stylish and Sensible Rain Boots

Not much is worse than trekking all over campus in the rain or a snowstorm when you’re unprepared for the weather. Sitting through class in wet shoes and pants is not only uncomfortable, but not cute. Personally, this sort of unfortunate occurrence totally ruins my entire day. So what’s the solution to this potential problem? Invest in a great pair of rain boots! Rain boots don’t have to be big and ugly and ruin your ensemble. Come on Fashionista/os, we are in the 21st century. Not only is the world technologically progressing everyday, but it’s also progressing in terms of fashion. Rain boots come in every color and design you can imagine. You can find them in both tall and short versions and different finishes as well — shiny and matte. Owning at least one pair of dependable and trendy rain boots is a must, especially for college students who are always running around. If you’re in the mood to treat yourself, pick up a few pairs so that you have a pair to go with every outfit.

Today’s Fashionista rocked a pair of tall Hunter Boots in a fabulous coral color. This color would make a statement on its own ordinarily, but it looked especially great with her hair color – they really complemented each other. Since her boots were the focus of her ensemble, the rest of her ensemble was kept fairly simple. She wore an oatmeal-colored printed sweater over a white T-shirt. The color of her sweater matched the color of the knit legwarmers that she tucked into her boots. Her ensemble was cute and casual — the perfect look for a rainy or snowy day. Look to this Fashionista for inspiration on styling your rain boots or picking out a colorful pair.

Owning a pair of fun rain boots that you love will make getting yourself out the door on rainy days so much easier because you’ll be excited to wear them. Paying a little more money for a dependable pair is definitely worth it because nothing’s worse than rain boots that aren’t, well, rainproof. In addition to being the best shoe choice on rainy days, rain boots are also suitable for snow days, as today’s Fashionista displayed. On chilly days, tucking a pair of legwarmers into your rain boots is a great idea because it will add warmth and a little more style to your outfit. The added layer will also assure that both your feet and your pants will stay nice and dry in the bad weather.
