I love functional items that have a bit of personality and quite how it took so long for wellies to make the leap from standard issue green to full on colour is beyond me. Joules Wellies have been a long term favourite of mine.
Like a child staring in through a toy shop window, each season I salivate over the new designs just in case my existing pairs suddenly start to leak. It is almost a tragedy that they are so sturdy but if you drop serious cash on a pair of wellington boots you want to know they are going to last and mine certainly aren’t showing any sign of giving way after five years of use.
If you’re anything like me narrowing down your choice to just one pair might prove tricky. Above are my favourite styles from the current collection. I’m glad they have added expandable sides as not everyone has slim calves!
I am a bit of a sucker for prints on boots (ok, prints on everything) and the green pair (top right) with their stripy magenta lining are my top choice. The glossy boots (top left & bottom right) look incredibly smart and no-nonsense. The tie detail boots (bottom left) are wildly decadent – in my mind I’m wearing them with a flowing skirt whilst feeding the chickens in my orchard. It could happen.
Welliebobs are my absolute must have for rainy school runs. I’ve had a pair for a couple of years (you can see them in this post) and they are brilliant for pulling on as you run out the door. As they have a faux fur lining you don’t strictly need socks which I love.
Am I alone or are you secret wellie fanciers too?
