As we near the end of March, Spring is showing signs of its spry little self, providing teases of sunshine, but, most noticeably (and obnoxiously) the arrival of April showers. Having the power to ruin an outfit in an instant, there’s nothing more frustrating than waking up to puddle-soaked streets and having to reframe a planned look so that it’s “rain appropriate.” While shoes are obviously the most affected, luckily designers are getting sartorial with their rain boots, helping to keep your feet dry, and your look complete when the weather goes south. Take a look at this season’s hottest rain boots:
1. Burberry Studded Wellies $395
I really can’t think of anything better than a badass rain boot and Burberry’s studded wellies have some serious attitude. These black, high gloss boots feature four rows of silver studs along the top of the boot, laid over Burberry’s iconic checked print. Slamming through puddles in these babies won’t be a problem at all, as your studded stomp keeps you dry all day long.
2. Loeffler Randall Rain Bootie $165
Jessie Randall is the queen of designing amazing footwear that is also comfy and functional, and these little rain booties are no exception. Although rain boots can certainly be stylish, it can be a drag spending your entire winter/spring with your legs covered, which is exactly where these darling ankle-high gems come in. Available in black and hunter green, you can show off your gams and keep your feet dry, all at the same time — at a modest price, too!
