The leaves are falling and the air is crisp — it’s time to pull those trusty UGGs out from the back of your closet! This season, UGGs have gotten a bit of a boost — in the sole that is. It only makes sense for UGG to release a few elevated styles, as platform boots, sneakers and loafers have been dominating for quite some time. Celebrities from the Hadid sisters, to Elsa Hosk and Keke Palmer have been pioneering this trend, causing the comfy kicks to go viral on TikTok and Instagram.
Styles of the Season
The UGGs to look out for this season are the Classic Ultra Mini Platform, Tazz and Neumel Platform Zip. These popular styles are selling out fast, so make sure to get your hands on a pair ASAP. They also make for a great Christmas gift — to give or receive!
Gigi Hadid’s favorites are the Tazz in Chestnut, which she has been seen pairing with everything from cozy sweat sets to polished denim. The stylish slippers have a 2-inch platform and are made with UGGplush, a wool blend meant to mimic shearling — the perfect alternative for those concerned with animal cruelty.
Dress ‘Em Up
UGGs are no longer reserved for lounging and running errands — celebs and influencers alike have been dressing up their boots for a more put-together look. Pair them with a denim mini-skirt if you are feeling nostalgic for those early 2000s days and still want to achieve the model-off-duty vibe. Or, try topping your outfit off with a blazer when temperatures dip for an effortless, classy ensemble.
Or Dress ‘Em Down
Call it basic, but UGGs and cozy outfits go together like jeans and a white-tee—an undeniably timeless duo. Pair your platforms with plush sets and your most lived in jeans — they will be sure to elevate your look from snug to stylish. Try adding some trendy white ankle socks to your outfit for maximum comfort and warmth.
Amidst platform UGGs rise to popularity, they have become a bit controversial — as controversial as fur boots can be anyway. Some say they are uncomfortable and impractical, while others claim they are downright ugly.
