If you miss days spent puddle-jumping in the yellow rain boots of your youth, you're not alone. Well, maybe we can skip the deluge, but Tracee Ellis Ross has us wishing we held on to those waterproof beauties from yesteryear and is giving us an excuse to shop for something similar.

The Girlfriends and Black-ish star was spotted in the eye-catching Bottega Veneta Puddle Boots while braving the recent rainy weather in Los Angeles. While the yellow footwear isn't exactly a new design (Ross also wore them several times last spring), the unexpected curvature and vibrant hue make it impossible not to look twice. As much as we're crossing our fingers for sunnier days ahead when it comes to inclement weather, we've learned it's best to be overprepared, especially when that involves buying accessories that are both fun and functional. Ahead, shop 11 pairs of fun, bright rain boots that are guaranteed to brighten up your next rainy-day outfit.
