Dressing For The Wet Winter Weather

Recently, due to the influx of constant heavy rain and getting my shoes and ankles dirty from splashes, I have been considering getting a pair of winter shoes/wellies. I don’t exactly find them to be the most stylish option, but I know that you can get some really gorgeous Hunter Wellies in some great prints! I was thinking of how to make a more classic pair of black wellies fashionable though and this is what I came up with.

I chose black because it’s the most versatile/quiet colour and pairing these with black skinnies makes them stand out even less. Burgundy and mustard are my two favourite colours for Autumn/Winter as well so I think dressing the black up with pops of colour from the hip upwards really makes your torso the focal point, so the wellies don’t become too obvious. This is how I would wear them, if I decide to get a pair!Β I just know that it’s getting somewhat annoying having to avoid puddles and the dirty splashes all the time! I usually dress a little differently in the rain (as you can see here), but I would definitely feel comfortable in a look like this! What do you think of the outfit?

    I love these selections and I’ve been lusting for a pair of Hunter boots for aeons but have never been able to justify a pair due to the Australian weather! I suppose I’ll just have to move to London then … πŸ˜‰

    And thank you for your lovely comment, I’m already following you on Bloglovin’!

    You need to check into this brand: http://aquatalia.com/ Every boot is weatherproof even though they don’t look like it! Besides, Hunter boots are great when it isn’t very cold, but they just aren’t all that warm when the temps really drop.

      Thanks Jen, I had a look but it seems like they are US and Canada only, and very very expensive ha ha.

    I honestly love my wellies in the winter – I have a classic pair of green hunter ones, but I LOVE the patent black ones you have picked out, really smart! Mine are proper ‘country’ wellies, all muddy and filthy, but I could do with a smart pair for everyday! I wear similar colour combinations a lot of the time, and I ADORE the colour of the coat you’ve picked – really nice selection!

    I feel like I’m the only one that didn’t jump into the wellies trend xD I just don’t get them…I mean, of course I get them, they keep your feet dry because they’re waterproof, but I don’t get why so many fashion experts love them…to me they’re just rain boots!!! xD
