How to Wear Rain Boots: 6 Style Tips and Outfit Ideas
Wherever it is that you call “home,” you’re going to have a reason to wear rain boots. If you’re hoping to hit the festivals or go on a summertime adventure, or if you happen to be someplace where it rains a lot, a pair of rain boots is a solid investment worth making.
Rain boots, or Wellington boots, are comfortable and cute, but they’re also extremely practical.
Just take a look at these 6 stylish fashion bloggers to see some of the different ways you can wear rain boots.
1. Winter Wellingtons
When it’s cold, using your rain boots to keep your toes warm is a must!
Tights or leggings with thick socks will keep your boots functional, and a thick knitted sweater with a fluffy scarf will make you look warm and ready to tackle the cold weather.
Keeping your color palette neutral will also complement your paler, cold-weather skin. Just take a look at Aleksandra of Jeliza Rose. Her blog is unfortunately no longer available online.

2. Animal-Print Boots
If you’re feeling a little more daring, then try some loud animal-print rain boots to liven up your outfit and to draw attention in your direction for all the right reasons!
Like Missy of Pop of Style, balance the boots with leopard-print accessories, such as jewelry or a scarf.

Like Kenzie of ‘Kenzie Faith’, celebrate spring with brightly colored rain boots. Her fashion blog is unfortunately no longer available online.
Keep it sweet with a dress in the same color palette as the boots, and work the preppy look. This is a great everyday look to wear regardless of the season.

4. Day-to-Night Rain Boots
A shirt with a collar paired with a leather skirt is a look that can be worn all day but won’t look out of place in an evening setting either.
Classic rain boots with cheeky heels can add some class to your outfit; just throw on a tailored coat, and you’ll be prepared for the night ahead.

5. City-Style Rain Boots
Black rain boots can be made city-appropriate if you incorporate them into a monochromatic outfit.
While black skinny jeans with a loose white shirt can look formal, rain boots and carefully selected accessories can add a cool urban edge that is perfect for a summer day in the city. Just take a look at Rowan of Red Reiding Hood!
