With April showers just around the corner, there’s nobody better to look at for a little style inspo than one of rainy London’s most stylish residents, Meghan Markle.

The Duchess of Sussex knows a thing or two about looking chic through England’s dreary and wet weather, and one thing she—and several other stars like Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Garner, and Hilary Duff—love to wear are their Hunter rain boots and wellies.

The handmade waterproof rain boots come from Hunter, a British heritage brand, which you can shop at Nordstrom, Zappos, and Amazon. The versatile boots are incredibly comfortable and can be worn with just about anything, from casual ensembles like Meghan’s to dresses and skirts for the office. They’re so timeless, even Princess Diana sported them back in the ‘80s just ahead of her wedding to Prince Charles.

With several styles in various heights and dozens of colors, there are endless options to choose from. Go classic in matte black like Meghan, opt for elegant green like Princess Diana, or incorporate some color with bright yellow boots like Reese Witherspoon. Just make sure that whatever you choose, you love it because these wellies are going to be around for decades to come.

Invest in the boots that started it all. These tall rubber wellies will keep your feet and legs dry through rain, snow, slush, and mud, and can be layered with socks and stockings, or worn over skinny jeans. What’s more, you can also get them in a packable style if you tend to travel often, or a glossy version for an extra luxe look.

These lightweight wellies pack just as much style as their taller counterpart, in a shorter height that’s ideal for year-round use. Wear them to the office on rainy days or out in the garden this spring. This style comfortably fits wider calves and comes in a glossy finish, too.
