Dressing Up Hunter’s Heeled Chelsea Boots


Dressing up my Hunter Heeled Chelsea Rain Boots

I’m pretty sure Autumn is very much on its way now as I’m spotting leaves falling off the trees everywhere I go, as well as conkers dropping from the trees already! So what do I do when Autumn comes around? I break out my jeans and blazers and I love to wear new wellies! You probably know by now that I like to have a smart dress sense, so I like the idea of being able to dress my wellies up.

I was able to do that with my new Hunter Heeled Chelsea Boots as they have a touch of glamour to them which is perfect for the looks I like to go for. I’m very much used to my tall, flat Hunter wellies that I wear all the time, so finding a heeled pair that was ankle length was amazing! I get that they might not be the most practical, but for walking around town and wanting to look dressy while keeping your feet dry, they are ideal! I chose the matte black option too as it’s the most versatile and easy to wear with everything.

I wanted to go for an all black look so the Hunter boots would blend in nicely, so I paired Hunter boots with my James Jeans Twiggy Dancer Jeans in Black Flex Distressed to create the illusion of longer legs. The heel on these Chelsea boots is quite high, but with the thick platform at the front, I wouldn’t say the steepness of the boot is much more than 2 inches, so they are very easy to wear. I went for something a little more classy on top, choosing my ASOS Cami Top and then layering my Zara blazer (similar here) over the top to give it some structure.

It wouldn’t be one of my outfits though if I didn’t have some colour somewhere, so of course I went with my amazing rainbow umbrella (buy it here) to brighten it all up. I love the black contrast of the outfit against the pop of the intense rainbow shades. It really livens everything up! The rain was off and on when we shot these photos, but the boots are definitely waterproof in case any of you are wondering. How many of you remember this umbrella from my old fashion blog banner? And of course, please do let me know what you think of this look!



What I Was Wearing:
Jeans – James Jeans
Blazer – Zara
Top – ASOS

    • September 20, 2015 / 10:27 pm

    Growing up on the farm I’d probably have laughed in the face of anyone who’d suggested the very existence of wellies with high heels. Not very practical for milking cows… πŸ˜€ However, these do look great on you as a fashion item and I’m throwing my practicality argument in the bin (unless you are planning on milking any cows…). πŸ˜‰

    So, I think they’re a very nice choice and you probably leave some very interesting footprints behind which may baffle anyone who walks the same route later. πŸ˜€

    The blazer looks fabulous too and I adore the umbrella. πŸ™‚

    Autumn seems to be on hold up here in Lincoln. Today and yesterday were both very warm and sunny. Probably summer’s final effort though.

      Ha ha, yeah, I totally understand how impractical these would be for farming duties, but as they are more of a fashion boot, I think they are good! Glad you like the whole outfit though!

    Oooh! Haven’t seen that umbrella in a while- love it!

    • September 20, 2015 / 10:29 pm

      Thank you!

    I love that it’s all black + colour pop with the help of that stunning (!!!) umbrella! Your Hunters are gorgeous!
    Hope you’ve had a great weekend, Lorna

    They are a great way to have the practicality of a Wellington boot with the stylishness of an ankle boot πŸ™‚

    I like the all black outfit too, the umbrella really pops against it!

    Bout time we see that Hunter logo on your legs again! Lookin really good in these chelsea boots. Though i am wondering where your new blue tartan ones went? Wanted to see a nice post of you in them.

    • September 21, 2015 / 2:06 pm

      Thanks, Eric! Haven’t worn them yet for an outfit, waiting for Autumn to properly hit to wear those ones. Do you like these though?

        Love them Lorna, they look fantastic. I like the heels, really sets them apart from other Hunters. I just bought the short dark petrol wellies on clearance, really excited for those!

        • September 21, 2015 / 8:32 pm

          Oh those ones sound nice, will be nice to see them!

            Yes very excited to wear them a lot this fall. My mom is turning into a welly snob now, she just bought fuschia pink hunters to match me and my sis last month, 2 months before that she got glossy red and black pairs, this last week i went with her to get her some matte green hunters and today she ordered joules evedon ribbon wellies! She said my collection inspired her own as living in seattle makes them regular everyday boots. She wants yellow and white ones next!

            • September 22, 2015 / 11:51 am

              Ha ha, that’s really funny! My mum is inspired to get a pair soon though, I wonder what colour she will get?

                My mother was adored with the glossy black originals, she wore em everyday when she first got em. I bet your mum will look as great in any pair just like you.

                • September 22, 2015 / 5:09 pm

                  Sounds good to me!

    • September 21, 2015 / 2:07 pm

      Thank you!

    The rainbow umbrella looks perfect with your outfit! Your eye for details does not stop to impress me. And the boots seem so practical for walking on rainy autumn days. Amazing photos and a great post as always! xx

    LOVE that umbrella! It really makes the whole outfit fun. Eventually (re: someday, some year) I need to get some cuter rain boots too. I’m kinda waiting to see where we end of moving though, ha. If hubs gets a job in say, hot and dry Texas, I won’t be needing cute wellies! For now, I just keep going with my old knee high wellies. Good enough for now. πŸ™‚


    • September 21, 2015 / 5:00 pm

      That does make sense why you will be waiting πŸ™‚ I find though that they last for years and years, so if you do decide to invest in some Hunters of a different kind, you can wear them many years from now too!

    • September 21, 2015 / 5:00 pm

      Thank you :]

    How beautiful! I am a big fan of total black outfits and I loved the boots! I always wanted a pair of Hunters, but somehow never got one, probably because I avoid going out when it rains πŸ™‚ Not always possible, so I may get a pair one day! Loved your jeans and I agree with you – I guess I am the same, a touch of colour is always important! I want that umbrella so much! It’s so nice!

    • September 21, 2015 / 6:17 pm

      Thank you so much Denise πŸ™‚ Really glad you like the outfit so much!

    Haha awesome I was *just* talking about heeled rainboots with a coworker the other day! And I need your umbrella…if CA doesn’t get rain soon I could definitely use it in this crazy heat! lol πŸ™‚
