Taylor Swift proclaimed her love for Brits in her song "London Boy," so I'm not really surprised that she's started to dress like one. Photographed on a masked walk near London, Swift and her boyfriend Joe Alwyn went matching in Hunter Wellington Boots, which are iconic waterproof shoes that are a true staple in England.
For a Brit's take on the icon status of the boots, I tapped our Who What Wear UK editor in chief Hannah Almassi. “The reason wellies are so synonymous with British style is that we really need them!" she told me. "Thanks to our rainy climate and muddy terrain, no countryside walk would be quite as enjoyable without a pair. Due to their necessity, it’s important that they are of good quality, which is why you’ll find many people who wear wellies regularly will opt for a more expensive pair like those from Hunter, Aigle, or Le Chameau (Kate Middleton’s wellington of choice). Top tip from a Brit—buy a size or half size up and wear with thick socks or two pairs of regular socks. They’ll be much more comfortable and also warmer during the winter months.” There you have it.
