June may seem like an odd time to buy a pair of rain boots, but here are two reasons why you might want to consider doing so: It rains in the summer (and no one wants to wear slimy, wet flip-flops on the subway), and there are excellent rain boot deals to be had. For instance, these pretty, glossy “boat”-blue Hunter Chelsea boots are currently 60 percent off at Nordstrom. They’d look nice with a summery pair of cropped pants. Note: These coral-printed Hunter boots and these groovy “shadow”-printed Hunter boots are also 60 percent off.
