Fabulous Find of the Week: Target Polka Dot Rain Boots


They say April showers bring May flowers, so for this week’s Fabulous Find we’re featuring a college wardrobe staple that every girl should own: a pair of rain boots.

Target has a wide variety of budget-friendly rain boots that offer both fashion and function, so, of course, the store is home to our Fab Find. Not only are these mint-colored, polka dot rain boots on-trend for spring, but they’ll help keep you dry when it’s pouring outside. Plus, at just under $30, these boots are quite the steal.

Ready to see what these rain boots look like? Just scroll on down to check them out as well as three chic rainy day outfit ideas:

Outfit Inspiration

If you like these cute and practical rain boots, then you’re going to love the outfits we put together for inspiration. Read on to find out three stylish ways to wear this week’s Fabulous Find:

Outfit #1: Pretty & Polished

Target rain roots, skinny jeans, printed blouse, clear umbrella
Product Info: Rain Boots- Target, Umbrella- Bloomingdale’s, Watch & Bracelets- Miss Selfridge, Blouse- Dorothy Perkins, Frizz Serum- L’Oreal, Jeans- H&M, Cardigan- American Eagle Outfitters

This first outfit is a causal, yet stylish look to rock on a rainy day. Start by pairing a printed blouse with a pair of dark wash jeans – I find that skinny jeans are ideal for tucking into rain boots. Layer on a plum-colored cardigan, then accessorize with a several bracelets and a watch. If your hair tends to frizz out when it rains (mine does!), add a small amount of anti-frizz serum to keep your locks looking good all day long. Last but not least, grab a sleek and modern umbrella.

Outfit #2: Sweet & Girly

Target rain roots, striped dress, knee high socks, floral umbrella
Product Info: Rain Boots- Target, Jacket- Forever 21, Dress- Forever 21, Necklace- Forever 21, Cheek Stain- Tarte Cosmetics, Umbrella- Marc Jacobs, Socks- ASOS

If you have a more girly sense of style, try out the ensemble above the next time it rains. Take a pretty pink-and-white dress and pair it with an on-trend denim jacket. Not only are knee-high socks practical, but they look super-cute when peeking out from the top of the rain boots. Accessorize with an arrow-shaped necklace, then add a bit of cheek stain, which will give you a healthy glow even if the weather is dreary. Finally, don’t forget your umbrella! This Marc Jacobs one incorporates all the colors found throughout this look, plus it boasts a pretty floral print.

Outfit #3: Comfy Casual

Target rain roots, rain parka, tunic leggings
Product Info: Rain Boots- Target, Tunic- Monsoon, Leggings- H&M, Rain Parka- American Apparel, Earrings- Betsey Johnson, Mascara- Maybelline

On rainy days, sometimes we want to do nothing more than sleep in late and lounge around the house all day. Unfortunately, most times we can’t do that, but this final look offers a comfy, but not sloppy, rainy day outfit. Tuck a pair of basic black leggings into the rain boots, then add a flowy gray tunic. If you don’t want to carry around an umbrella, a hooded rain parka is a fantastic alternative that’s guaranteed to keep you dry. Accessorize with a pair of quirky, yet cute anchor earrings, then add a few swipes of waterproof mascara and you’ll be good to go.

    Love the first outfit! I have a pair of rain boots about that same shade of blue (and also from Target), but I’ve never been quite sure how to style them. This helps quite a bit!

    I’m in love with the first outfit! It’s absolutely perfect for visiting my family during the rainy months! I live in a desert now, so I only break out the rain boots when I’m out of town.
