Kamik's Tulip in Red wellie is perfect for pairing with a sundress to splash through puddles.

Kamik's Tulip in Red wellie is perfect for pairing with a sundress to splash through puddles.



In the early nineteenth century, the first Duke of Wellington, Arthur Wellesley, requested his shoemaker modify a pair of his Hessian boots to make them both comfortable and durable—and so began the trend of "wellies" as a rainy-day choice for the fashionable. While wellies have come a long way since Wellesley was donning them for splashing through muddy hunting trips, they're still the perfect option for comfort and style on wet days. Fun prints like the Syber style from Madden Girl ($44.95, DSW stores) or Kamik's Tulip in Red ($59.95, Nordstrom, SouthPark, 704-442-6000) will put a skip in your step during the next spring shower.
