Anyone would hunt a pair of Hunters?
With Glastonbury festival hitting it off - it is official. The festivals' time is ready to start and so is the festival fashion. In this post I'd like to focus especially on one piece without which no festival can really happen. With rain and mud everywhere - shoes are the most important piece of your wardrobe. And what other shoes could be better than Wellingtons. By Hunter of course.
Looking at the past years we can definitely find some essential pieces that are a part of festival fashion. There are Ray Bans, boho belts, short and floral dresses. One of them definitely are Hunters. I'm not gonna write wellies - because we all know that if you want to buy a pair of wellies for a festival - it must be by a British company - Hunter.
The original Hunter wellington boot was invented in 1856. Until this day it's known for its comfort, well fitting and quick drying. They were originally designed for walking in Scotland's rugged terrain and combating. Nowadays they also help people in need but mostly in their leisure time. All because Hunters can also be fun. They are available in many different colors that's why a lot of celebrities and fashionistas wear them not only when raining. They can be a fun accessory to a boring outfit. Some of the stars loving Hunter wellies are Kate Moss, Kelly Osbourne or Nicole Richie.
This year Hunter company once again teamed up with Water Aid foundation. They've created a special Hunter Wellies pair. Black original Hunter boots with water drops drawn on the sides look very nice and definitely will make a great success during festivals this summer. Of course not only - looking at the weather outside my window I'd love to get them right away myself!
Shoes can be bought in London's Topshop on Oxford Circus or online on both Topshop's and Hunter's websites. One pair costs 60 pounds. Each 10 pounds from every purchased pair will be donated to Water Aid to support Water Aid's work in Madascar.
