HOW TO STYLE WELLINGTON BOOTS

Living in the UK without my wellies would be a disaster. Okay, many dog owners in Germany and all over the world might say the same because they need to go out no matter the weather. Actually I already had 2 pairs of my Hunter wellies and my Burberry ones back in Germany. But here we seem to be always on the road for the blog, visit estates and often walk on very muddy paths. I think you see me wearing wellies more than 50% of the time. I would be lost without them and when I’m not wearing them, my other shoes are terribly dirty. But after all this isn’t a streetstyle blog (which I find great too by the way). Here you find everything that has to do with Great Britain, lots of clichés and even more British countryside. hunter wellington boots

 
 

I combine wellington boots with everything. When we visited Pinkney Court in Wiltshire a couple of months ago, I wore a maxi skirt with Hunters and felt as if I was part of the English gentry which of course had a lot to do with the stunning surrounding. It was amazing. Wearing Hunters with a pair of jeans, a plaid shirt, a waxed jacket and a tweed cap is probably very cliché as well which then again isn’t one at all. This is what people wear around here. hunter wellington boots

Well, wellington boots and a pair of jeans are the classic go-to outfit. You can never go wrong with it. My favourite way to wear them though is with skirts and dresses. It often looks so unexpected and you can play with colours. My Burberry boots are a bit lower but they have an orthopedic inlay and are incredibly comfy. With Hunter you get different shafts and widths. I love wearing my black ones which are adjustable. Slipping in and getting them off is very easy. The blue pair you see on the photos is quite high. I like them but the shaft is very high which often makes them not as comfy as the others. Especially when we’re out all day and need comfortable footswear. My red ones are the so called ‘Original Tour’. They are much lighter than the other models and you can fold them. There’s nothing better when you’re travelling.

Currently Hunter has some wellies with a very low shaft (see here) and I love them so much that I’m contemplating getting a pair. Before I forget: Joules has beautiful wellington boots too, often very colourful and with lots of print. I actually have a pair in the garage but can’t find them at the minute. It’s so packed that I have to wait for us to move to get hold of them again.

 
 
I can guarantee you that you can do no wrong in buying a pair of wellies from Hunter, Joules or Burberry!

Hi Kristen you know how I like to see you wearing your Wellingtons so thank you so much for such a superb post.
I’ve got 2 pairs of “Huntress” Wellingtons one in shiny black and on in shiny red which I like to wear with a Dress or Skirt, Huntress Wellingtons are rather shorter and wider in the calf than Hunter Wellingtons and are designed to be worn by women hence the name “Huntress”

Thanks so much Julia. I must say that I really love the shiny ones and I wish my red ones were a shiny pair, I think they look so stylish and cute. I can imagine that the Huntress ones are quite comfy. Have a fab weekend, hopefully it doesn’t get too windy.x

Seeing all your Wellies almost makes me want to go get a pair. Do they make your feet sweat much? (because they are rubber, right?).
I certainly don’t need them for the weather here, but they have such fun prints, that I could have them just for the looks!!

Hahah good!!! No, they don’t really make my feet sweat much in this weather. They would in summer if the air was very humid but right now they are perfect too wear.

I love how you colour co-ordinate them 🙂 very jealous of your Hunter collection! I don’t have a pair of wellies and after reading this, I’m not sure how I’ve survived! I could definitely do with a pair for the walk to work when it’s pouring down xxx

Thanks so much Lucy. Oh yes, the wellies are just perfect when it’s pouring down and always add a bit of fun to an outfit if you ask me.
