Dry goods: waterproof booties for rainy fall days
These booties from Brazilian label Melissa are guaranteed to be this season’s go-to shoe. The perfect balance of form and function, flocked plastic gives the appearance of lush velvet but acts like last season’s Hunter rain boots, protecting feet from rain, snow and slush. The seamless construction is high style, and the scuff-resistant material is both pretty and practical. And they’re 100 per cent recyclable. Talk about a smart investment.
