Spring is upon us, and that means two things: more sunshine and more rain. Although waking up and seeing rain outside tends to be a drag, there is one thing that always brightens up my day, and that’s knowing that I have a cute pair of rain boots to lighten my outfit and mood. A rainy day doesn’t always have to mean trudging around in an unfashionable outfit, as sophomore Samantha Carey shows here. Sam’s fun, colorful rain boots are the perfect accessory for a rainy day. The best part about rain boots is that there are so many different colors and patterns to choose from, you can still express your personal style.
I’ve seen cheetah, Burberry plaid, hounds tooth and more all around campus. Another big trend are Hunter Wellies, which are pricey but good quality and simply chic. Sam also sports a colorful umbrella to compliment her boots. A bright umbrella is a great way to add flair to your rainy day outfit and make you stand out in the crowd. I love the clear bubble umbrellas like this one from Urban Outfitters. The most important thing of all is choosing a stylish raincoat to pull your entire look together. I love waterproof trench coats like this one from DKNY, because they are timelessly chic and versatile. The best thing about rainy day style is that there are so many ways to make it your own; as long as you have the perfect boots, coat, and umbrella you’ll be ready to take on whatever the April showers bring.
