Rain boots are necessary staples in your wardrobe, but that doesn't mean they can't be stylish. Designers are ushering the practical footwear into more fashionable territory, totally abandoning that bright yellow welly style you wore as a kid. But, don't worry: rain boots are still durable and comfy, boasting water-resistant material and snug inner lining to protect your feet from an outdoor shower. But they're designed in such a way that you won't mind wearing them all rainy season and beyond.
From knee-high equestrian styles to low-profile Chelsea styles, this season’s rain boots mirror many of the spring 2020 shoe trends that you saw on the runway and all over the streets. The only difference is they're just crafted of water-resistant rubber. For those spring fashion lovers who are disillusioned with boot styles, brands are even designing rain-friendly footwear that’s fashioned like a ballet flat and loafer, but just as functional.
The variety of styles certainly opens the door for better styling opportunities. There are moto rain boots you can pair with a floral dress, denim jacket, and tall socks for a trendy approach. You can also take the beloved Chelsea rain boot style and pair them with everything from vintage jeans to midi skirts with ease.
Ahead, find rain boot trends for spring 2020. You might even want to wear them when the sun is out.
