Giving it Welly! Copy-Kate’s Rush to Buy Boots

The Duchess Effect strikes again, with sales of one French company's wellington boots soaring thanks to a Kate Middleton's choice of country chic.

Like many women, we at are huge fans of Kate Middleton’s style. We’ve watched her parade an incredible wardrobe at events across the globe, and we love how she makes high street look high-end. So, we think it’s only natural that she has a following of Copy-Kates, girls who watch What Kate Did Next and do their best to steal her style. The latest trend? Wellies.


Yes, wellies. Worn by most of us for music festivals (and solely by famers for the other 362 days of the year) – Kate has been spotted sporting wellington boots by Le Chameau on multiple occasions and today’s Irish Independent is reporting that an online company selling the boots has seen a 32 percent increase in sales since the Duchess donned them.


Are you a fan of Kate’s style? And if so, will you be giving it welly in the famer’s favourite?
