Top Five: wellies fit for Glastonbury in the style of Kate Moss
As I've mentioned before, I live on a farm and thus wellies are an integral part of my wardrobe (yes, you'd be surprised how often I can be found rounding up the odd stray sheep). However, with the current weather unpredictability and Glastonbury imminent, wellies are once again going to be a vital fashion accessory. Don't despair though ladies, they are not just suitable for farmers, and if La Moss can make them work with a pair of denim hotpands anyone can, right?! Well maybe not, but carry on reading to take a look at what's available this summer!
First up are the predictable and trusty Hunters. They're definitely the boot du jour for all models at music festivals, and one example are these original rubber wellington boots, £50. Pictured here in black, they come in many other colours, from powder blue to merlot. Best of all, because they're unisex they are available in sizes UK 3-12.
If you want to go down the patterned boot, Funky-Wellington-Boots is a good place to start. All priced at £29.99 or less, by using express delivery as long as you have ordered by 2 p.m. on the day in question, they will arrive with you by 1 p.m. the following day. These Nordic Bloom wellies would look fab with jeans on those slightly cooler days, and you can get a pink Welly Boot Bag for half price if you go for them.
For something with a touch of the antique about them, how about these adorable William Morris 'Daisy' boots. Perfect for those of you who like your footwear to have a hint of the historic about them, the design is from block-printed wallpaper from 1864! For that fantastic concept these are of course, more expensive than your average pair of wellies, but at £49.99 I think they're worth it.
Reduced from £45 to £35 are these unusual American Sweetheart boots from WellieArt. Cream in colour with a striking pattern, they're definitely suitable for the more fashion conscious (or perhaps American!) of you out there! Best of all, it has a soft fleece lining which means that come wind or rain, your feet will at least be snug and comfortable in your boots.
Finally, for something slightly different: these Le Chameau Vatna leather boots. They aren't cheap at £195 but they have a suede leather outer and are fully waterproof and breathable. They're also good for a range of terrains, although I'm not sure how treacherous this summer's music festivals are likely to be! They're bramble resistant and pretty light to carry and are the most fashionable waterproof walking boots I've seen.
