Ugg boots have been in stores for quite a few years, and the fashion boot has stayed trendy for the past few years. Tom Brady of the New England Patriots is even sponsored by Ugg. These boots can be beneficial to wear on the right occasion, but they can really ruin your look on the wrong occasion. Here’s the most important dos and don’ts of wearing Ugg boots.
Do Wear Ugg Boots to Run Errands
When running errands, it doesn’t matter what you are wearing. You are just out to get things done including: grocery shopping, paying bills, or any random chore for that matter. Uggs are easy to slip on and take on these tasks.
Don’t Wear Uggs to Work
Ugg boots are for casual wear. Do not wear them to work. It leaves a bad impression on your professionalism, and if you work with clients they won’t be impressed either. If you want to wear your Uggs on the way to work, instead of heals, this is definitely an option. Although wearing Uggs with a professional dress suit may look silly.
Do Wear Socks With Uggs
Please wear socks with your Uggs. There’s nothing worse than incredibly smelly Ugg boots that stink up an entire room. The fur absorbs any moisture in your shoes. Yes, the fur in the boots feels nice on your bare feet, but the smell will not go away. To keep your Uggs smelling fresh all the time, consider putting fabric softener sheets in them.
Don’t Wear Uggs In the Rain or Snow
Uggs are not waterproof. Even if you purchase the water resistant spray for the Uggs, they still absorb the water. If you are in desperate need of keeping your feet dry, purchase rain boots. Uggs are meant to keep your feet warm.
Do Wear Uggs With Leggings
Uggs have thick material and leggings are very clingy. This combination leaves a slimming effect on your legs. As long as it’s a casual outfit you are wearing with your leggings and Uggs, you can really pull off the look.
Don’t Wear Uggs With Shorts
Uggs are meant for cooler weather. These boots are made of fur, so you don’t want to wear these with shorts, especially in the summer. It looks very tacky, and it will make people wonder if you are confused about the weather. The best time to wear Uggs are for cooler and dry weather conditions.
