We’ve all started the treacherous walks to and from class… sometimes it’s too hot outside, and soon it will be too cold (well at some schools), but it definitely rains everywhere! Walking around in the rain is the worst especially when you have books to carry! By the time you get to class your soaked and your books/computer are soaked too! After the first rainfall last year I realized the rain boots and a raincoat are a college girl’s NECESSITY!!!

Hunter Rain Boots are great and are probably one of the more popular styles on college campuses. They come in different styles and tons of colors. They also sell “welly” socks that you can wear when it’s cold out so they can be worn in the snow. Although they may be a little pricey they’re cute and comfy and keep you from getting wet!

Raincoats are definitely necessary when walking to class in the rain–The North Face makes lightweight raincoats in a bunch of different colors. Make sure to look for one with a hood!

The most obvious essential is an umbrella, but don’t settle for a boring black one! Fashionable umbrellas are small enough to keep in your bag and can make you easy to find in a crowd!
