The "Boring" Boots About to Be All Over Our Feeds This Fall

When it comes to analyzing the new season runway trends, there always seem to be a few that stop me in my tracks. Not because they are overly flamboyant or over the top but because they are in fact, pretty darn “boring”. Oftentimes, simple and classic trends are exciting because of all the cool ways you can reinvent the trend with different styling techniques. Such is the case with rain boots. We saw waterproof boots crop up everywhere on the runways—from rubber ankle boots at Dior to knee-high chunky Wellington boots at Versace. Whether they’re styled with a pretty slip dress and a grandma cardigan or paired with a pair of jeans and a sweater vest, rain boots are not only practical but they’ll add a refreshingly cool touch to your look this fall and winter.

So whether it’s raining (or not) wherever you are, we guarantee you’ll be spotting the functional boots all over your feeds this fall. Scroll below as we share some of the coolest pairs out there right now.
