Ask Belle: Rainbows for Under-$75
Mar 15, 2016
As it warms up in DC, I find it increasingly difficult to wear my Bean boots in rainy or wet conditions. What are some rain boot options to wear while commuting that I can also wear into the office before I change into heels at my desk? I’m on a tighter budget, so something $75 or less would be much appreciated.
Thanks so much, and best of luck with finishing out law school! KG
If you live in a wet climate and spend any time outside, rain boots are a must. Ask anyone who has ever sat through a morning meeting with wet feet or dried her trousers using the hand dryer in the bathroom. Here are a few pairs in your price point that are office-appropriate.
If you want an incognito rain boot, stick with black, navy and grey. These Joules wellies are a classic, and I like the bright yellow accent. There an affordable alternative to the classic Hunter boots. (For a bit more color, I love these blue-grey Hunters.)
Shorter boots are a good choice if you want to avoid hot calves–particularly important in hot, humid climates. These Jeffrey Campbell boots are so chic, and they come in seven fantastic colors. I love the black and navy. The L.L. Bean ballet flats are also a good choice for staying dry.
