It’s summer - you’ve waited all year for this! Finally you can take out your cute sundresses, J Brand short shorts, capris, and tunics, and dress to capture the sunshine. But what if you live where summer not only means heat but also a lot of rain? It’s a question for the ages, falling under the bigger question plagued by fashionistas of every generation: how to keep your chic AND be practical at the same time? In this case, how does one maintain a sweet summertime style and keep their feet dry? 

Luckily there’s a simple and timeless answer: Hunter Wellington Boots. The classic English brand that used to be exclusive to stable lads and grannies that garden has expanded its standard black and dark green boots into a colorful array of options. Of course, the dark colors work too. Check out pictures from the Glastonbury festival to see the likes of Kate Moss and Emma Watson sporting the tall boots with cut-off jean shorts. Those girls know that to enjoy the music one must plan for mud! Gweneth Paltrow is another fan, donning her Hunter boots on almost of every episode of “Spain: On the Road Again” on PBS. In other words: you simply can’t go wrong. 

Since color is always key in the summertime, try a pair in bright fire engine red, luscious fuschia pink, bold violet, or sunflower yellow. Even Hunter’s gorgeous shimmering silver makes a surprising statement. Pair them with your favorite pair of shorts or a sleek mini dress for a look that’s playful and practical in one. A classic brand with a fresh look that’s just what you need - what’s not to love?
