A fashionista must, is to always be prepared for any weather. Here in the valley, rain has started and of course we don't want to ruin our amazing heels. I've seen various different rain boots on girls yet some I see ruining their shoes. I mean I can only imagine how wet their socks are. You must make sure that when you purchase rain boots they have a warm lining, something commonly not searched for when purchasing rain boots. Also if you look at how thick the calf part of the rubber is, it is a good indicator of how your body warmth will last in your boots. Rain boots don't have to be basic, they can have details showing your style. Personally I own black Burberry rain boots, with the Burberry name in a red detail on the side. I felt that it was very classic, they are extremely warm inside, and I love how the name is on a red detail on the side. Pictured below.
Some might like their rain boots to be more detailed and have some type of pattern. Here are some with the Burberry design, that some people love.
If Burberry isn't to your liking, there are also Coach rain boots, in various different patterns. I feel like many opt for Coach, it might be because of it's easy recognition of someone acknowledge it's a Coach rain boot, but I prefer something less flashy. Yet if that's your personally style go for it! Here is a classic Coach rain boot.
This fall there has been a great addition to the Steve Madden shoe collection and it's the new Tsunamii rain boot. It has the edgy biker look to it with buckles, and a red lined zipper detail in the back. If you are looking for a different rain boot that has some edge, this might be it for you.
Also for the rainy weather, a classic umbrella is a most. You always want to have at least one black umbrella being that it's perfect when you are going out and are dressed up. You wouldn't want to walk out in an amazing dress and have a pink hello kitty umbrella that looks like you stole it from your little sister. I believe the Dav umbrella is very classic in shape. It's deeper than a foldable umbrella and the handle is very retro!
Remember, just because it's raining, it doesn't mean you can't wear those fabulous heels. Just know which ones won't be damaged by water. There is always different rain boots for different styles so don't think you won't find the perfect one for you. Always try them on before purchasing because some are thinner at the calf and your jeans might not fit in them. Hope you fashionistas the best at your search for the perfect rain boots for you!
