We’re apparently headed for the wettest summer in decades, weather experts claim, so sadly your fave pair of espadrilles or Birkenstocks may be a little redundant this year.

According to a briefing from the Met Office to the government, there could be as many as 50 wet days over the next three months, meaning now is the time to invest in a study raincoat and some weather-appropriate footwear.

But in the spirit of every (rain) cloud has a silver lining, the range of wellies at on the high street is incredibly chic this year, with plenty of styles you won’t mind being seen in on wetter days.

A online brand recently reported that organised Brits are already getting ready for a wash-out summer, with searches for ‘wellies’ up by 280% versus last year.

Thankfully there is a wide variety of wellies styles on offer to suit any outfit or mood, from bright colours and loud patterns to chunky ankle wellies for an easy-going daytime look.

For fashion-forward wellies, ASOS DESIGN has options in modern shapes and bold colours, or you can opt for styles from Hunter and Barbour for classic and timeless looks.

Wellies as a fashion item are nothing new (thanks to Kate Moss at Glastonbury circa 2005). When paired with the right outfit, they can look stylish and on-trend – particularly with the new styles on offer at the moment.

This is our pick of high-street wellies to keep your feet dry this summer.
