UGG Do's & Dont's

The 6 do’s and don’ts of styling ugg boots

Hallelujah, the ugg boot is back in fashion!

The most comfortable footwear you can find is now a streetwear style icon once again.

There was a dark, distressing time when ugg boots were deemed a fashion sin by a collection of cruel-minded fashionistas. For some unexplainable reason, if you were caught wearing uggs or slippers outside of the house your crime was punishable by couture death.

Now, the classic ugg boot has made a triumphant return to the world of fashion and it’s completely acceptable to wear them for all occasions, throughout all seasons.

Coffee dates.

Walking the dog.

Going to a wedding.

Okay, maybe not a wedding.

Whatever.

A casual-cool sense of style is all the rage right now and it’s time to settle into those trusty, cosy, well-grooved uggs to treat your feet inside and out.

As much as we might wish otherwise, life still can’t be an ugg-wearing open slather. There are certain conditions that separate a classy ugg-wearer than a lazy one, and we want to help you nail it every time.

We’ve thrown together six dos and don’ts to styling your ugg boots this season. Discover how to make a classy, envy-inspiring fashion statement all year round!

DON’T wear uggs with a mini or midi skirt

We support wearing uggs with almost everything but unfortunately, we can’t advise wearing ugg boots with midi skirts. The wool spilling out from short ugg boots just doesn’t match up with a mid-calf skirt.

The fabric-to-boot ratio doesn’t leave a lot of skin to enjoy the summer breeze, so we recommend matching your midi skirts with sandals instead.

Mini skirts with ugg boots is also a no-no. The look is a little too Mean Girls to be worn outside of a comedy film set.

If you are planning on wearing uggs for a summery look, wear them with a maxi skirt for a bohemian goddess look or pair them with some short to mid-length shorts to create a “casual cool” atmosphere.

DO wear uggs with leggings or skinny jeans

 

The classic ugg boot is as charming as it is chunky.

Wearing ugg boots with baggy pants can look more like pyjamas than banging street style. Balance out your boots with a high-quality pair of leggings or skinny jeans to give your legs some definition.

Make sure you tuck the bottom hems into your ugg boots. It’s extra comfortable and it will emphasise your calves.

DON’T wear ugg boots with “going out” clothes

As much as we love Selena Gomez rocking uggs in a ball gown, it just doesn’t have the same effect in real life.

Wearing creased, well-loved ugg boots with a cocktail dress, suit or tuxedo takes some of the glamour away from the expensive look you’re going for.

Save your ugg boots for a more casual outfit and slap them on after you get home from your formal event to reward your feet for a job well done.

DO wear your uggs with casual clothes

Ugg boots are the perfect addition to a casual outfit.

Match them with a comfortable jumper, hoodie or denim jacket, slim pants or long skirts and everyday accessories.

Short, brown boots are casual cute with a pair of blue jeans and a knitted jumper. If you prefer longer boots (perfect for colder winter weather), wear knee-high uggs with black leggings or jeans for a high class, comfortable look.

DON’T wear your uggs in the rain

Rain is the worst possible thing that can happen to your uggs.

Excessive moisture can damage your ugg boots in the long term so when the weather gets murky and there’s mud or puddles outside, keep your uggs tucked away out of the wet and muddy conditions.

DO protect your sheepskin ugg boots from the elements

Let’s face it: you can’t always predict the weather.

The weather in Australia changes on an hourly basis most of the time, so we recommend taking some precautions to protect your ugg boots from damage.

Even if you’re a home-only ugg wearer, you’re still bound to be caught in a morning dew when you’re hanging out the washing or splashed by an unexpected spit of oil from the barbecue.

It’s so easy for you to protect your uggs from this accidental spills and stains.

Just spray your sheepskin boots with oil & water repellant for maximum protection from moisture and clean them regularly with ugg boot shampoo to keep them looking healthy and new.
