Rain, rain, no need to go away, when rain boots are the chicest accessory this fall. One of the more practical options of the shoe variety, this utilitarian boot often holds the sentiment of an unfashionable necessity—or at that rate, isn’t even thought of at all. In actuality, rain boots are a sure statement piece perfect for bringing a look together. From knee-high to ankle and patterned to minimalist, there are rain boot styles aplenty to pair with cool outfits for even the dampest of days. Chloé’s sleek heeled option offers refined sophistication while Emilio Pucci’s colored and patterned retro-inspired pair makes a fun fall statement, and that’s just the beginning of choices.  

Make a splash—figuratively and literally—with any one of these boots, guaranteed to enhance your outfit and protect you from your wet walks around town. With elegant options like Stella McCartney’s cream Chelsea rain boots and edgier pairs from Bottega Veneta, you’ll want to don your rain boots on even the driest of days without a cloud in the sky.
