April showers bring…high-fashion footwear? Sure, why not! When early spring showers make you reach for your rain gear, know that you don’t have to choose between fashion and function. Today’s rain boots can keep your toes dry and warm while adding a dose of fun to your outfit. These adorable boots will have you scanning the street for puddles to splash in.
For Those Who Love Plaid: Tartan Print
L.L. Beans’ tartan print Wellies are fun enough to stomp through puddles, yet fashionable enough to wear to the office. The treads provide extra traction for navigating slippery sidewalks. These boots also have an adjustable instep strap to allow for a more custom fit.
For Those Who Love the Classics: Equestrian Chic
These Land’s End knee-high, buckle-adorned rain boots emulate equestrian style. They’re fully waterproof so you stay dry from toes to knees. They also have an inner, removable foam footbed, allowing you to walk comfortably all day.
For Those Who Jet Set: A Packable Pair
If you have a spring getaway on the agenda, these packable rain boots are a must! The problem with traditional rain boots is that they can eat up valuable carry-on space. We’ve found the solution: foldable boots! These boots fold for easy storage and come with a matching travel bag to keep your clothes clean. Best of all, they’re less than $40 and come in a wide range of colors from classic black to vibrant prints.
For Those Who Love Labels: Hunter
Hunter rain boots are the original iconic rain boot. They offer both glossy and matte finishes, as well as virtually every color of the rainbow to choose from. For those who prefer a roomier fit, the Huntress boot cut offers a wider calf circumference. If you’re the type who likes more personality and color, wear these boots with printed fleece boot socks peeking out of the top.
For Those Who Love Fun Fashion: Polka Dots
Even when skies are dreary, it’s impossible to be in a bad mood when you’re wearing polka dots on your feet. Target’s novelty rain boots keep your feet dry in the most fun way. The colors range from mint, yellow, and hot pink (or grey or black if you’re a neutral fan). If you can’t decide, these boots sell for just $34.99–making it affordable to pick up more than one pair!
For Those Who Love to Garden: Impressionist Boots
Who says a rain day needs to lack color? These vibrantly colored boots are almost too pretty to get muddy. If the painter-inspired pattern is too much flair for your taste, then Nomad also offers their Women’s Puddles Rain Boot in fifty-one other pattern and color combos.
Stay dry, warm, and cute this rainy season with spring rain boots that will showcase your personality. You can’t control the weather, but you can have some fun dressing for it! You may even find yourself tempted to sing in the rain.
