Planning your fall wardrobe yet? You should be! August is over halfway over and back to school season is in full swing. No matter what climate you live in, for most, rain is a reality of fall weather, and a great pair of rainboots is a necessity to dress practically and stylishly. But that doesn't mean you have to invest in designer rubber boots! (After all, all they are are rubber boots.) Here are my picks for fall rainboots, all under $75.
Tall & Simple Wellies
While tall wellington boots are super practical in a downpour, they've been known to take over an outfit and draw all attention down to their clunky selves. While you can wear them over skinny jeans and a loose tee for a classic casual look, they can be made more stylish by pairing them with your favorite minidress and dark tights.
Short Chelsea Boots
Chelsea boots are a great style, and plenty of retailers are making rainboots in the short and practical cut. For a style that is more demure but practical, pair these with your favorite skinny and ankle jeans, rolled at the hem, or with your favorite dress and tights.
If you want a hybrid between the tall and ankle boot styles, there are other options to choose from. These work well with skinny jeans tucked in, but won't take over your look quite like the tall style has been known to do.
If you want to add some fun print to an otherwise serious outfit, pick a pair of wellies in a cute print. Steer clear of flowery or totally rainbow styles to avoid looking like a kid jumping in puddles. These go best with the simplest of outfits, in all black or monochrome.
