Question of the Week: Cute & Chic Rain Boots

A lot of people have been asking me for rain boot suggestions - "ones that don't make me look like a kid", "ones I can wear to work", "ones that look cute".

A lot of people have also asked if I like Hunter Original wellies. I think they're fine. They're classic and functional, but I don't find them particularly stylish. They're just rain boots.

I'm actually a bigger fan of Hunter's Lady N style, which retail for $140, but you can find a handful of them for under $100 on eBay.

Hunter Lady N, $140
These are sleeker and in my opinion more interesting than the original pair. They've got two-tones, and they look a bit like riding boots, which brings me to my next find.

dav Equistrian, $95
These are a nice basic pair. They look just like classic riding boots only they're waterproof rain boots.

Chooka Lace-Up, $79.95
This pair is a bit chunky for me personally, but I do like the lace-up style. They remind me of combat boots, and I think would be perfect for that rocking the 90s grunge look in the rain.

Jeffrey Campbell Vee, $54.95
For light showers, these ankle boots are nice dainty option. I actually ordered a pair of myself. They look a little sock like on me, but I liked them enough to keep them. They look best with skinny jeans and leggings.

Melissa x Vivienne Westwood, $120
If you're really not too concerned about heavy showers but want waterproof shoes, these rubber heels from Melissa could be fun.

Aquatalia by Marvin K. Giggle, $207.92
If you're dealing with more serious rain, but still want your heels, check out Aquatalia by Marvin K. These have a little shielding in the front to protect you from splashes, but if you need more, the full length Glory rain boot could be your answer.

Readers, if you have any other suggestions, I would love to see them!

For funky rain boots that don't look childish, I would go with Dav. I got some on ideeli for $30! I have the fashion boots in houndstooth and I love them and get so many compliments. They have rain pumps, too, which might be my next rain purchase.

I bought these JC rainboots a couple of months ago and they've been a lifesaver. I wear them in the rain and snow and they make me feel invincible!

(I didn't buy from this site but that's the correct image.)
