Rain, Rain Come and Stay...
Feeling the first fat rain drops on your head or getting soaked all the way down to your toes is always a welcomed change to the day (and one that is desperately needed here in the Bay Area). However, when it comes to walking out the door in the morning, the wet weather can easily throw a wrench into your daily ensemble. Often considered the ugly duckling of the boot family, it may seem daunting to incorporate rain boots into an outfit, but it’s totally possible to rock those galoshes and make them work with your wardrobe, rather than against it. In fact, the unexpected contrast of bright color and utilitarian functionality can add an edgy element to any outfit.
Skirts & Dresses: While it may seem a little crazy to pair rubber boots with a cute dress, the two can actually be a perfect match. The key is to balance the two extremes with complementary colors. Your rain boots should add to your outfit, not distract from it, so if you want to go bold down below, focus on a more neutral pallette in your clothing. To ace this look, choose an A-line that falls above your knees. Walking in a more classic style boot - don’t be afraid to have some fun with color or pattern in your clothing.
Leggings: Nothing says cozy quite like leggings and an oversized sweater. To complete this look, put on a pair of comfy knee-highs and a solid-colored boot. The cold and dreary weather will be no match for you today!
Skinny Jeans: When it comes to rocking a pair of rain boots, skinny jeans are a girl’s best friend. Whether you’re braving the blizzard or dodging a sudden thunderstorm, you can tuck your jeans into your boots without worrying that they will bunch or wrinkle. Throw on an oversized sweater or button up your trench coat to stay warm and dry.
See? Suddenly puddle jumping doesn't sound like such a bad idea after all.
