Who says dressing practically has to mean sacrificing style? Certainly not us, and we've got 10 pairs of impossibly chic rain boots to prove it.
Scroll down for picks that will have you covered in various weather conditions.
Best tall rain boots for women
- 1. Hunter Women's Original Tall Rain Boot, $88-293, Amazon
This rugged, yet somehow still sleek, rubber boot has developed a following from celebrities and beyond, making it the gold standard of rain boots. It's available in 28 different colors including white, pink, silver and hunter green.
- 2. Sakroots Rhythm Waterproof Rain Boot, $55, Nordstrom
This fun floral pattern definitely screams spring. Just add your favorite pair of leggings, a long sweater and you're ready for whatever adventure the day has in store for you.
Best mid-calf rain boots for women
- 1. Hunter Women's Original Short Gloss Rain Boots, $56-179, Amazon
- 2. Chooka Women's Mid-Height Rain Boot, $23-65, Amazon
We love this boot from Chooka for days when you don't need as much coverage. Go for a bright hue to help battle the cold weather blues, or opt for something more sophisticated like this herringbone mix for commutes to the office. They start at just $23 so they're a great affordable option!
- 3. FRYE Women's Storm Zip Rain Bootie Boot, $120-158, Amazon
One of the downsides of rain boots is that you have to maneuver your feet and legs (and typically bulky pants) into them, which is why we can appreciate this convenient front-zipper offering from FRYE. This cut pairs especially well with a cute dress or skirt and black tights, and will have you out the door, stat.
- 4. UGG Australia Women's Shaye Rain Boots, $50-85, Amazon
This is another boot (from Ugg) that offers a good amount of coverage on days when you’re expecting a heavy fall, whether it’s rain or snow. It comes in four basic colors to match any outfit.
Best short rain boots for women
- 1. Sam Edelman Women's Tinsley Rain Boot, $27-100, Amazon
At first glance, many people won't even realize this bootie from Sam Edelman is designed to keep you dry. Keep it on hand year-round (it works for all seasons!) for days when it's drizzling or there are puddles. It might not be a bad idea to scoop up a pair to keep at your desk just in case. If the shiny look isn't your style, they also come in a matte black and 8 other colors.
- 2. Sperry Top-Sider Women's Saltwater Rain Boot, $85-192, Amazon
Who knew the words "fashion" and "duck boot" could go together so well? These boots from Sperry are a chic yet functional way to brave bad weather. We love the pop of blue at the bottom of the boot, but if you want something more traditional, this style comes in a variety of colors and patterns including navy stripes and quilted black.
- 3. Crocs Women's Freesail Shorty Rainboot, $31-148, Amazon
- 4. J.Crew Mercantile Chelsea Rain Boots, $40, J.Crew
This wellie from J.Crew goes undercover as the beloved Chelsea boot, making it ideal for everyday errands (especially when the weather is up in the air). It also comes in black and sparkly silver if green's not your style.
