Consider rain boots that don't scream rain boots. These chic däv 'Bristol Ombre/Sable' Waterproof Rain Boots ($98) lean more toward a polished, riding boot look than they do a traditional clunky-plastic look. The ombre tan-to-black coloring means they go with virtually everything, too.
High heel rain boots are hard to come by; comfortable ones are nearly impossible to find. Sorel killed it with the chunky Women’s Medina IV Premium Rain Heel Boot ($350). They're comfortable enough (for a heel, at least) for a long walk, and chic enough to wear even if it's not raining out.
The understated faux snakeskin texture on these Posh Wellies 'Tanzanite' Rain Boots ($88.95) give them a bit of an exotic flare. Even better, these are wide-calf, so you can easily slip your thicker socks and jeans into them.
I am all about convenience, and I know most moms appreciate the practicality of products that come in handy on the fly. These Butterfly Twists Foldable Rain Boots ($75) do just that: they roll up and easily fit into your carry on or large purse, making them perfect to tote on the go. When that unexpected storm hits, you’ll be ready!
A animal print effect give these Joules NESSIE Textured Rain Boot Wellies ($47.45) an edge. Check out the pattern up close---it's divine.
If you've ever searched for a tan pair of rain boots, you know what a gem these are. Tommy Hilfiger 'Babette' Quilted Rain Boots ($89) are as stylish as they are waterproof: with a suede look, it's hard to even tell that these can withstand the rain.
Anyone with wider calves knows the woes of finding a good rain boot that actually fits. Rather than search high and low for the perfect fit, consider the Hunter Original Redefined Mid Wedge Gloss Rain Boot ($195), a stylish boot that gives your calves a sexy boost and avoids the fit problem entirely. These are a truly stylish rain wedge that are actually comfortable enough to walk around in all day.
Looks like a sweater, performs like a raincoat! MukLuks Karen rain boots ($59.95) charmed me at first sight with their warm tones and Old World knit pattern.
Wide laces in the back give these super affordable Merona from Target 'Kyra' Rain Boots ($34.99) a stylish edge on an otherwise sleek and plain black boot.
Even if you've already got a pair of Hunters in your closet (who doesn't?), consider these Hunter Packable Wellies ($150) for your next trip---they're made of super flexible rubber, so they fold/roll up easily and don't take up a lot of space if you're packing light.
Toughen up---it’s just rain! But if you need a little boost of courage, these Loeffler Randall Rain Fenton booties ($195) should do the trick. They’ve got a hint of Brit-punk inspiration behind them, which should fuel you up just enough to get out the door and face those puddles in style.
