Q&A: Rainy Day Rainboot Recommendations

August 28th, 2007

Q:  What colors/styles do you recommend for rain boots in general?

Kate Spade Riley RainbootBy Colleen Geary, fashion stylist and image consultant

A: 
Rain boots should be fun and whimsical - cheery for a rainy day! My favorites are Kate Spade rain boots. She has an adorable pair called Riley in green with one white bug on each boot, which makes them fun but not overdone.

If you live in a place where you need a selection of rainboots, add to your boot collection with a pair of classic Wellington boots. Wellies are not only classic but also chic. Choose a pair in a bright color, such as yellow, to spruce up your rainy day outfits.

    i’ve never owned a pair of rain boots. I suppose I’ll invest in them.

    How would you wear rain boots to work? Could you recommend a work appropriate (business casual) alternative?

    Thanks!

    Fuschia is wonderful–and fuschia rainboots are a great way to add a shot of color to your outfit!
