Yes folks, it’s that time of year again, when all anyone can talk about is festivals and what to wear to them. And while I love the romantic thought of swanning around in a floaty dress and Ancient Greek Sandals with a flower garland in my hair, Great Britain ain’t Coachella, so you’ll need something a bit sturdier if you’re heading to a festival on home turf.

Regular readers of this blog will know that as far as Wellington boots go, I am a big fan of the Anklington for a festival – so that’s an ankle length wellie. Why? Well, I AM a fan of a knee-high boot for, say, a country walk in the Autumn, but if there’s a chance that the sun will be out, I will be in shorts, and a tan that stops at the knee is NOT a good look in my book. So here are some of my favourite Anklingtons around at the moment.

Meduse

Meduse started life making Jellie shoes in France (watch this space for a post about bathing shoes later in the summer) but also make these super cute ‘Jumpy’ boots that come in loads of great colour options. Have you ever seen a lemon yellow wellie before? No, me neither, but I like it. In fact, all of these pastel colours make me wonder…if Prada made wellies, would they look a bit like this?

Ilse Jacobsen

Isle Jacobsen’s lace-up wellies take some beating as far as the cool factor goes. They look brilliant with a pair of jeans and a chunky fisherman jumper, but they’d be pretty amazing to wear at a festival, too. They’d also be totally acceptable if you happened to find yourself in the VIP area rubbing shoulders with the stars. These really are the most chic Anklingtons around.

Hunter

OK, I know it’s obvious, but Hunter do make great Wellingtons, particularly since they started showing at London Fashion Week (the clothes are well worth checking out, too). I love that they’ve really brought the wellies on a level this summer, with some really cool, modern shapes and colour combos.

If you find yourself at a festival this summer, be sure to tweet me a picture of your wellies! @EnBrogue

  1. I used to living in Bergen, where it rains 200+ days out of the year. The shops there didn’t have a great selection of wellies, though! Ilse Jacobsen’s are everywhere, but I’d love to have the new Hunter wellies, and even better, the chic and minimalist Meduse Jumpy. Great for dressier outfits! Btw have you heard of Swims, the Nowegian brand of overshoes? They are quite popular here in Norway and look pretty cool. They even have them for stilettos! http://swims.com/
