skull-wellies.jpgSadly for those of us who live in a damp climate, the season of flip flops can also be the season of wellies - and that's particularly true if you're going to be attending a summer festival or, indeed, doing anything else that may involve lots of mud. In recent years, the manufacturers of Wellington boots have cottoned onto this fact, and have been providing us with lots of lovely wellies, most of them involving some kind of floral pattern or bright colour.

These ones are different. These skull print wellies from ASOS are the bad-ass cousin of all the floral print numbers and will help to give your festival outfit a bit of bite. I wear my wellies when I'm doing the garden - a chore I hate so much that I'm thinking these could well be the most appropriate footwear for the task. They're £18.
