Winter is a seriously confusing time: One day it’s snowing, the next it’s perfectly crisp and sunny, and the next—boom, surprise rainstorm! These polarizing weather conditions can make one’s wardrobe do a tailspin; how does one own that many shoes to cover all the bases? Still, a crucial style to have in the rotation is a classic pair of rain boots—and right now, there’s a ton of stylish options on the market that are both waterproof and actually wearable to the office.
If one wants heavy-duty protection against the wet streets, look to the classic rain boot brands. L.L. Bean’s original tall boot, for instance, continues to sell out all these years later (if you see one in your size, don’t hesitate). And there’s a reason why it’s so popular: Its streamlined design and rubber chain-tread bottom ensure a slip-free wear. The same goes for Hunter’s timeless Wellington boots; remember when Kate Moss famously wore a similar style to Glastonbury with short shorts? They’re supermodel-approved!
There are also more fashion-focused styles on the scene. Take Jeffrey Campbell’s white patent boots with a thick block heel—for when you’re attempting to stay dry but want to make it fashun. Similarly, Prada’s canvas and leather rain boots combine functionality and edge. Those chunky rubber soles have been sported by everyone from Bella Hadid to Kendall Jenner.
Below, 13 more sleek boots to wear in the rain.
