April means April Showers and of course, in Vermont, it also means mud season. Starting at the end of March and going through until about the middle of May, I don’t leave the house without funky rain boots. It’s too warm for snow boots and I don’t want to get mud all over my good snow boots. But, it’s too messy for my favorite athletic shoes or flats. The solution is a funky pair of rain boots that are easy to clean and waterproof. That way, I can show off my style without destroying my other pairs of shoes. Rain boots are generally waterproof so you can wipe off the mud easily and keep your feet dry when you go outside. This post contains affiliate links.

How to Wear Funky Rain Boots as an Adult

As an adult, I always feel like I should be practical in my wardrobe selections, and I am most of the time. I’m all about classic navy, black, and khaki. They’re great wardrobe basics to build your style around. That doesn’t mean you won’t find me throwing in some fun bursts of color with the rest of the clothes I wear.

  • Simple style – The easiest way to wear rain boots is with a pair of leggings, tall socks, an oversized t-shirt or sweater and a fun hat. Go for a warm hat if it’s cold out or choose a cute hat to keep the sun off your face if it’s hot.
  • Skirt and sweater – Don’t be afraid to pair your favorite skirt and sweater with a pair of funky rain boots. A solid print skirt and cable knit sweater would be a perfect match for a pair of rain boots in a bold pattern or floral design.  Choose a solid color pair of boots if your outfit is patterned.
  • A spring time dress – A beautiful white lace dress and a fun pair of bright yellow rain boots would be a great way welcome spring! Add in an oversized umbrella and you’ll have the ideal April shower outfit.
  • Jeans and a poncho – I love jeans because they are so comfortable and a pair of dark blue skinny jeans with a colorful rain poncho (or knit poncho in the cooler weather) will keep you stylish and dry!
  • Classic black – If funky isn’t exactly your thing, you can always choose a pair of classic black rain boots and pair them with your favorite black leggings and sweater for a more professional or toned down look.

  1. Very pretty, although I confess to not wanting to wear boots unless there’s snow or ice on the ground.I do see lots of other people who wear them just to be fashionable.

  2. I have one pair of black boots to wear in the rain here (no snow in LA). They are awesome and are to be worn with shoes, to keep them dry. Called PYSIS “Posh Galosh” Overboots, to give them a little plug. If we had more rain here, I’d wear cool boots more often, but we’re in a drought.
