^Hunter boots are the best and last forever and I love all of the Melissa plastic dreams shoe line (especially her collaboration with Vivienne Westwood). Recently I've been buying 1950s/60s high heel covers. They mold to your high heels and they don't get wet. I've only been able to find them on ebay though.

I love my Sperry Top Sider rain boots. They have a little wedge.

Do gumboots squeak? I wouldn't mind a pair of Burberry ones but the thought of squeaking when walking into a lecture doesn't appeal..

I love Hunter wellingtons. I've been wearing them nearly all of my life because I live in the countryside, and therefore wear them for walking the dog, going shooting, mucking out horses et cetera et cetera et cetera. I have four pairs: green, navy, red and aubergine and alternate depending on my mood. The classic green ones are the best, although I look like a real country girl when I wear them because I team them with a Barbour wax jacket and a flat cap (stylish...) .
I have a green Ralph Lauren umbrella with a wooden handle, which is really nice, but it's no good when it's windy. I have a Cath Kidston cage umbrella which has never turned inside out, even in the strongest of winds.
And I really want a transparent plastic raincoat, a la Sonia Rykiel.

Raincoat- I like when they are colorful
Hunter or Nokia rainboots- I own them both in black. I need them in another colour!


I am not umbrella fan, I like raincoats more!

OMG! We are back in the rainy season here ... and Im always confronted with the what footwear is the best:

*flipflops = your feet are exposed, you may get sick, and the "flop" you get a lot of water thrown onto your calves.
*heels = I dont think its a good idea, slippery floors when wet.
*work boots/combat boots = I think they are the best choice. You can wear socks, your feet breathe and you dont get wet!
*wellingtons/rain boots = I do own a pair, they are quite good and comfty but I feel slightly ridiculous. I feel like Im about to ride (a horse) or something.

Any pointers?

I have these amazing black flat knee-high patent boots I got in Italy at some teeny store that was having a sale -- they are completely water-proof. I adore them.

Terra New York

Cycling-ready heat-sealed rainwear that looks hot too

by Anna Carnick in Style on 11 May 2012



Braving the elements in style just got a whole lot easier thanks to Terra New York, a new line of fashion-conscious, 100% waterproof rainwear. The semi-transparent, smoky-hued jackets and accessories have NYC-centric names including the "Lower East Side" parka and the "Nolita" cape, and consist of materials like TPU/Urethane—which is derived from recycled materials—to provide structure while still allowing breathability.
Designed with urban cyclists and pedestrians in mind, Terra's first collection also includes special pieces like a parka with an adjustable hood that can accommodate a helmet.

Each garment is created using a heat-sealing technique at the seams to block out the water. According to co-founders and cycling enthusiasts Yurika Nakazono and Marie Saeki, "Each part of the coat has its own mold, and each seam is heat-sealed with another mold. Our 'Tribeca' trench coat, for example, is built with 75 different molds, each one specially made for a specific seam. The seam mold is heated, then applied on to the fabric, merging two, three, or more layers of fabric together. No needle, no holes, no chemicals and no water inside!"

"The inspiration was to allow people to brave the rain with a smile, knowing they look good and are protected," says Saeki. Nakazono agrees: "Living in Stockholm, Tokyo, London, Paris, and New York, I destroyed so many beautiful pieces of clothes, bags and shoes in the rain. Not finding any cool and 100% waterproof raincoats, I started thinking about doing it myself. Living in big cities, I never wanted the look of the British lord of the manor or the girl with the huge red and pink flowery rubber boots. I wanted to be chic, blend in the rain and feel comfortable."
Jackets start at $240 and are available online at Terra New York.

It looks really cool (especially the grey one, great choice), but it looks like it doesn't breathe at all..
And getting wet by sweating is just as bad as getting wet by rain
