We represent the fashionista who has places to go, people to see, or just likes to sleep in a few extra hours.

Rain boots get a bad rap.  They can be uncomfortable and unattractive, but they are undoubtedly the most practical footwear in inclement weather.  To look hotter when it is cold and rainy, all it takes is a keen shopping eye.  The cute boots are out there and the Internet is chock-full of them!  Check out these wellies that are so cute they will make you wish for rain (almost).

These Aigle Equibelle boots, available at J.Crew, combine a classic chocolate brown with a bright and daring orange for a stylish design:

Sperry Top-Sider is known for its on-deck footwear, but its wellies will keep you dry and classy off the boat and in the rain.  With a quilted leg and buckled ankle, these are the classic riding version of the rain boot:

Leave it to Tommy Hilfiger to design the preppiest rain boot out there.  His Canaan Rain Boot is available in two plaid prints:

For those of you who just cannot stand a full rubber boot, you are in luck.  L.L. Bean’s Costal Rain Skimmers are rain flats fit with a patent-leather seam to keep feet dry.  They are also available in four classic colors.
