Fashionable Rain Boots
Chic Rain Boots
This winter is turning extremely cold and wet, especially wet. Thankfully for our lovely leather boots, it looks like the “Wellies” have become fashionable. It has been a couple of winters now that models and superstars have been trying to make rain boots fashionable, to the point that some fashion magazines are trying to convince us that this season rain boots are 100% glamour. You can find them in all colours and patterns, and the materials are not limited to rubber. It is up to you to decide if rain boots can be glamorous or not.
Personally, I have only worn my Wellies for the garden. True enough I have worn the patterned and fancy ones, but their use has been limited to the garden. I had seen some photos like the one of Kate Moss pairing a mini dress with a pair of chunky £50 Huntress Wellington boots to last year’s Glastonbury’s festival, and an Olsen sister wearing hers for a day shopping in the city, but I had not seen anyone wearing them ‘for real’ outside the garden or mucky, funky music festivals: At least not until this year when I’ve finally seen them on the chic streets of Paris. Yes, finally rain boots have hit the streets; not only for the unaware gardener or Sunday walker but for women who dress fashionably but do not want to ruin their Manolo’s in the rain.

Designer Rain Boots
A quick look around the most fashionable windows in Paris will let you discover the new winter “must have”, a pair of rain boots! Each designer has his favourite version, from the immaculate white and cosy Gucci rain boots –for not less than 295 €- and the two-coloured Chanel –available for 450 €- to the extremely long and elegant black Givenchy rain boots for 350 €
How To Wear Rain Boots Fashionably
1) Unless you are buying the lined Gucci boots, remember to wear thick socks. Rain boots keep your feet dry but not warm.
2) If you want to wear your rain boots when it is not raining, choose a pair that does not scream “rain boot” like the rubber and snakeskin Burberry’s or the long Givenchy’s.
3) Pair them with slim jeans.
4) Pair them wit short casual dresses. Be sure to get your rain boots soon, you don't want to get caught in the rain without them.

Fashionable Rain Boots For Women
Regardless of their fashion status, rain boots are a very useful pair of shoes to own in winter. Probably it is the best example of functional fashion, one of the few items that we can take directly from the catwalks to the streets. And because there are so many styles available, now we can team them up with dresses and not only with a pair of rugged jeans. Apart from keeping your feet dry, rain boots can brighten up your day. Now you can find them not only in green, black or white but also in bright colours –see Kenzo’s- and patterned with some funky prints.
