Moschino Cheap and Chic Wet-a-Porter Wellies, $170 via Net-a-Porter
I love a good play on words, and the name of the Moschino Cheap and Chic Wet-a-Porter Wellies is just so meta. The booties were custom-designed for Net-a-Porter and feature a take on the site’s name, which is itself a take on the French term for “ready to wear” clothing, pret-a-porter. How adorable, right?
You guys might all be attached to your Hunters already, but so is everyone else – branch out! Live a little! Have the courage to live beyond the staid British rainy-day staples. At $170, this pair of boots is still in the same price category, but the cute slogan and matching red rubber sole make them loads more fun. And who couldn’t use a bit more fun when the weather’s bad?
Think about it – most people’s rain coats and umbrellas are a dark, neutral color, as are most rain coats. This pair of boots wouldn’t stand out too much, but the red-pink accents are just enough to put a smile on your face. If it’s the last one you get to have before trudging out into bad weather, it might be worth the investment. Personally, I wouldn’t mind an entire Wet-a-Porter line – how about umbrellas? Buy through Net-a-Porter for $170.
