Autumn is definitely upon us, and the rain has not stopped for two solid weeks, in case you were in any doubt about it.
And when you're navigating puddles up and down the street, heels, and even trainers just won't cut it. Only one thing for it: wellies. Sure, not necessarily the most stylish, but highly dependable.
That was until ARKET brought out the sell-out wellies of the season. The rugged-sold boots are an elevated version of the British staple, with a leather outer shell, though the sole is still rubber, making them great for the rough weather.
They come in two chic colours: olive green and black, and have been so popular influencers have been styling them every day, rain or no rain, confirming they can look great with anything from jeans and a thick knit to floral dresses and suits.
Sadly. they've been consistently been selling out, however there is still hope, according to ARKET's Instagram page at least.
The brand replied to disappointed shoppers, saying, 'we are expecting a restock in the near future, keep an eye out on our feed for updates.'
So if you can't get your hands on them in store, then sit tight as your luck might change soon. It's not like the rain is going anywhere...

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.
Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).
Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.
However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.
Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
