Recent rains have turned New England's winter wonderland into mush. Small wonder then that these stylish Wellies caught my eye.
Made from 100 percent natural rubber and lined with warm fleece, these waterproof boots by Danish designer Isle Jacobsen are perfect for mucking about in the vernal garden or countryside. With smart contrast soles, they're chic enough for the city too.
