Selena Gomez grabbed lunch in Burbank looking cozy-slash-utilitarian in an olive-green anorak jacket, a knit scarf, and black leggings. To shield herself from possible raindrops, the singer sported these Dav black equestrian rain boots ($73, originally $95) on her feet. If you don't yet have chic rain boots, we recommend adding Selena's pair to your mix — both the look and price are so right. And you can wear them with a variety of pieces from leggings, like Selena did, to jeans to dresses and tights.
Whatever you do, do not let the rain rain on your style parade. We've got an easy solution: find a pair of rain boots that don't cramp your style, but simultaneously guarantee you safety from all those newly formed puddles. A slim-cut riding boot won't disrupt your skinny jean M.O.; a moto-inspired iteration will keep your tough-girl ensemble intact; a subtle printed version is the perfect textural addition to a low-key outfit; and those olive green Le Chameaus will give you serious Kate Middleton glow. Long gone are the days of basic galoshes, now it's totally possible to fool everyone (including yourself) into believing that the boots you're wearing aren't even rubber at all. With a slick wraparound buckle detail, grommet addition, and glossy finish, this season's rain boot fare has been upgraded to some of the coolest weatherproofed gear around. Inside, you'll find 14 of our favorite shoppable pairs, weather woes not included.

With the recent rainy-day forecasts, Loeffler Randall's new rain boots couldn't come at a better time. Designer Jessie Randall — seen here splashing in puddles — just released a cool, new slip-on bootie style in navy and black. They're super functional, and we love the clean, minimal design. "It's so easy to get on an off," said Randall. "The perfect thing for running out the door." We agree. And if you're looking for a cute umbrella, Randall dished on a recent awesome find: "I found a really cute umbrella at American Apparel that has a lace pattern edge. It is delicate and functional." Check out the slip-on rain boot styles in the slideshow, plus see the popular lace-up bootie in a new gorgeous gray hue.

>> Loeffler Randall has just launched a selection of rain boots for Fall, based off of a couple of their most popular leather boot styles. The first: a lace-up rubber rain bootie ($165) modeled after the Loeffler Randall June bootie, and the second is a knee-high rubber rain boot ($195), featuring a small wedge and back-zip replicated from the brand's classic Matilde boot. "The intent was to create a slimmer, more chic version of a rain boot. I wanted to offer a rain boot that is versatile and can be worn with any outfit on a rainy day — a rain boot that enhances, rather than distracts from what you are wearing," explained Loeffler Randall creative director Jessie Randall. The collection comes in army green, black, and taupe and is currently available for purchase at LoefflerRandall.com — a look at the full offering, below.
We're thrilled to present our favorite Lucky story here on Fab!
If you don't already own rain boots, then you should seriously consider investing in some from Loeffler Randall's just-launched new collection. There are two different waterproof pairs to choose from — one classic knee-high style with a back zip that comes in three colors and a shorter lace-up bootie available in two shades.

The sleek minimalist designs are just as cool as the brand's other options — I particularly like both black pairs because they are so dark that upon first glance, you'd think they were leather. What do you think of this new collection? Do you want stylish rain boots?
