It happens every year.  Just like clockwork, we start to get a little too comfortable with the glorious spring- turning into summer- weather… and then, the clouds roll in, open up, and the rain comes down.  It’s kind of like Mother Nature is just reminding us that she’s still around.  She really does have a twisted sense of humor.  So, that leads us to the age old problem:  how does one stay dapper without getting drenched?

Year after year, I’ve rounded up the most waterproof footwear that’s sure to keep your precious Pradas and Louboutins free from getting waterlogged.  From your feet to your ‘fro, it’s not easy keeping in chic in the spring storms.  There are times you may just want to throw your hands up and think, “Forget it.  It’s raining, I’m gonna call it a loss.”  Here’s the thing:  your rainboots don’t have to be heinous.  Designers have really cranked it up a notch and created rainboots that are nearly as attractive as your everyday footwear wardrobe.  (Have they finally heard our prayers?)  Now, when the rain stops, you won’t be left looking silly in your big rubber wellies.  Instead, you’ll be as lovely as the sunny days that await you in May.
