Wellington boots, wellies, rain boots, whatever it is you choose to call them, we are certainly now well into the season when these become an indispensable part of your wardrobe. This could be because you love to walk your dog over open fields and park land, or maybe you work in an outside environment that gets rather muddy, or maybe, like me, these are now a staple for watching your child football training in all weathers, including, last Saturday, in the biting wind and rain. I must admit that I love the fun and practicality of wearing my wellies, and have quite a few pairs in my wardrobe.
There are so many great styles and brands when you are looking for women’s rain boots, the rather functional or childlike designs of the past, which either looked like they were designed for farmers, or for splashing in puddles, have given way to glossy designs, with cute patterns and prints, and more stylish, feminine shapes. Brands like Hunter have made wellies cool, a part of festival fashion that helps revelers to cope with the inclement British weather (and all that mud!). Joules is another company that makes rain boots actually look pretty, with dots and stripes that work well worn over jeans, or even Land Girls style with a tea dress and cardigan.
Even designers are now getting into the act, with both Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren offering super stylish versions of the once humble rain boot. None of us are ever that glad to see the rain, but these designs certainly help to brighten up the day in some small part.
