Shoes in the Spotlight – Tweed Wellies, by Claire Hunter

20 Nov

When it comes to winter, we all love a good boot or two. Whether it’s a pair of stylish ankle boots, some comfortable riding boots or shoe boots for all those Christmas parties you have planned, we all need a collection of on trend boots to get us through the winter months. Another essential boot style you need to have at this time of the year is wellies. Wellingtons are necessary when the rain and snow is pouring outside. You need a good quality pair for the horrible weather that usually comes our way during winter.

But as well all know, wellies are not the most flattering of shoes to wear, or so you once thought. The Wellington boot has had a bit of a style overhaul and now you will find collections upon collections of on trend wellies that you would actually want to be seen in. With the welly being the footwear of choice for festival goers and a must have for the winter months, it was only a matter of time before designers got their hands on them and added some much needed style to these once boring boots.

One designer label that specialises in wellies has done this exceptionally well. Hunter, a name well known for their boots has created many stylish wellies over the past few seasons and continues to do so with some very fashionable pairs you should certainly consider purchasing.

One pair that particularly stands out is these beautiful tweed wellies from the designer brand.

These Hunter Grey Regent Apsley Womens Wellington Boots are classic, stylish and would not look out of place on one of the Made In Chelsea cast members. These high end Wellingtons are ideal for those who like to look elegant yet need a pair of tough wellies to get them through the winter.

What really makes these boots great is the tweed detail on the leg paired with the patent rubber and the gold Hunter badge on the front. The buckles also add a nice touch to these wellies. Ideal if you want to stay warm and dry this winter without compromising on style.

I enjoy writing on a wide range of subjects including fashion, style, home wares, interiors, toys, gadgets, kids clothing and more. I hope you enjoy reading my latest blog post about these fantastic tweed womens boots and how they are perfect for winter.  Claire Hunter


Tweed Shoes – Buy of the month

ASOS | ASOS MARTIN Tweed Lace Up Flat Shoes at ASOS.

These tweed shoes have to be my buy of the month! An absolute bargain at £32, they would look so cute with a skirt or trousers. Classic, smart and sassy.

Want just a touch of tweed? Put it on your feet…

There is a huge amount of tweed footwear on the market.  Both Nike and Addidas have brought out tweed trainers this season which are bang on trend and uber cool.  Check out these Addidas trainers available from DMS Sportsworld.

Tweed shoes or ankle boots are the perfect finish to any outfit.  My favourites are these tweed faithful boots by Alexander McQueen, available at Liberty priced £670.

Yes they are pricey but so lovely.  However they are out of my price range sadly. If you have a tighter budget these boots from office priced £98 are very cute.

I have recently bought a sexy pair of  black and white tweed ankle boots for £30 from Ebay. Always worth checking out the Ebay goodness!

ooh la la, leopard print boots…

As a rule I am not an animal print fan but there is no denying how hot the look is for this coming season.  I do love these cow hide boots from Boden, they are priced at £130.

Spanish riding boots are hot!

11 Aug

It is official Spanish riding boots are hot.  Elegant, practical and comfortable these boots are a must.  Really Wild Clothing Company are the best around priced from £250 – £325.  Visit http://www.reallywildclothing.com to mail order or ask for stockists.

Buy of the month – Hunter welly socks

9 Aug

There is no denying how hot Hunter boots are at the moment. They have just the right look and worldwide popularity making them a great brand in the country market.  Give  any boot a Hunter make over with a pair of their fleece welly socks.  They come in loads of colours and have added animal print to the new range.  They should be priced between £15 – £20.  Contact Hunter for stockists near you, if no local stockists most will mail order.  Check out this video of a happy albeit quite strange (might even be a rubber fetishism) Hunter owner, note the cute fleece socks.
