How to Work Waterproof Footwear

There’s much more to waterproof shoes than just flip-flops for the beach, there’s actually a waterproof shoe for every occasion – and as they’re great for all weathers and look cool, there’s no reason not to jump on the jelly trend!

At a Festival

Protection from the mud is essential at a festival, as you know that rain is as good as guaranteed! Full-on wellies are a must in this occasion (as in the above iconic picture of Kate Moss at Glastonbury Festival).


Planning a winter break?

If you are planning a winter break for the beach you’d want a shoe that’s easy to slip on and off easily. If you want to go for something different to the flip-flops that you’ll see on everyone else’s feet, slip into a slider instead, like Gigi Hadid does below.

Spring Showers

Brit Boots that Celebrities love are –  of course –  the Chelsea Boots. These are the boots that I wear five days in a row in London, and that usually,  get me through Autumn/ Winter/ Spring and sometimes also – unfortunately – Summer…

If it’s full-on throwing it down then waterproof booties will keep feet dry without spoiling your Spring style. Colours of California has an amazing selection of low booties in a wide range of colours, with biker buckles for extra style points. Will look just as good with a sundress or playsuit as with skinny jeans.

Out and About

A sweet jelly ballerina-style shoe is perfect for skipping about town in – and will even work for work! Ted Baker has some gorgeously grown-up jellies featuring a smart bow, and the fact that they wipe clean will keep them looking pristine forever.

There’s absolutely no reason why a waterproof heel can’t work in the evenings – it certainly saves any worries about drinks being spilt on your shoes! If you want to be able to dance the night away in comfort, choose a high flatform style. Braver shoe lovers might want to go for a wedge heel instead.
