It’s officially boot season.

I had a hard time parting with my flat sandals and wedges for the year (what can I say? I love summer) but it’s finally appropriate weather to break out the fall footwear.

I have my fair share of fall boots, but I’m going to need something sturdier once that dreaded white stuff hits the ground. A pair that doesn’t get ruined against the slush (I’m talking to you, UGG boots) and will last me through all four seasons and beyond. The solution? The Rag & Bone for Hunter Boots collection.

Yes, they’re a little pricey for the budgeted twenty-something, but they’ll be totally worth it in the long run. Some things, like a pair of timeless designer black pumps, are worth the investment. So are these boots.

Designed like a rain boot, the style is meant for activities such as hiking and fishing. But if you’re a twenty-something in a metropolitan city, they also work in activities like dashing through a rainstorm. Not that I’m wishing for rain anytime soon…

The boot comes in two styles, tall and short, so everyone wins. Wear the tall style now and through spring, and switch to the short style for summer sprinkles to keep your feet dry but not hot and bothered.


Navy and blue is a huge trend for fall, and it’s no longer a sin to pair the two colors together. Black and brown…we’ll keep working on that one.

Hunter + Rag & Bone Boots, $265-$295,, or select department stores

Hannah Gettleman is a bubbly twenty-something living in Chicago. She graduated in 2012 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a degree in Journalism. Don't tell her that print is dying--she's already made the switch to public relations. As a Midwest girl, winter happens approximately 80% of the year, so she knows a thing or two about a good pair of snow boots. She lives for summer weather (even though she can never tan), Boy Meets World reruns, and an unhealthy addiction to dark chocolate and online shopping. She's a die-hard Chicago sports fan, even though she's well aware the Cubs always end up in last place every year.
