There are two types of people in the world; those who adore wearing UGG’s and those who just don’t understand the hype behind the shoes. I personally have always wanted to own a pair of UGG shoes. But I honestly felt it wasn’t practical to wear them living in warm climates like Singapore and Qatar. So I was so pleasantly surprised to see UGG’s latest Spring/Summer 2017 collection. It may sound surprising, but they have so much more to offer than their iconic furry boots.
My two favourite pairs of shoes from their latest collection are the Classic Unlined Mini and the Raven Bow Sandals (part of the UGG by Preen collection). I love that both shoes are perfect for Singapore’s warm and humid climate. To show you the wearability of these UGG shoes, I wanted to style two looks with them.
One of UGG‘s biggest partnerships last year was with Preen by Thornton Bregazzi. Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi are known for their romantic and contemporary designs. They created an exclusive two-piece collection of sandals that reflects closely to their brand aesthetic. The shoes were part of their SS17 London Fashion Week show and were perceived well by all.
Out of the two designs my favourite was the Raven Bow leather sandal. It is a playful yet edgy style that features an oversized bow with stitching details. In my opinion, this is the only pair of shoes you need to update your Spring wardrobe. I know that they may seem intimidating to wear at first. But once you wear them, you will never want to take them off. I choose to wear the sandals with a rugged pair of ripped jeans to show off the edginess of the shoes. And to add a feminine touch to the look, I paired the jeans with a Bell Sleeves top and a Silver t-shirt. For me, this was the perfect way to wear the sandals on the weekend.
The second shoe that I want to introduce to you, is the Classic Unlined Mini boot. This is a lightweight version of UGG’s famous boots minus the fur lining. The boots are crafted in a breathable, perforated suede. I have been wearing the Tawny colour on repeat for the last few weeks. The boot was made to be worn in warmer weather and is perfect for the transitional months of spring. They are the perfect touch to complete a casual look and are so comfortable. I loved wearing mine with cropped jeans and an oversized striped top. But they would equally work well with a dress, skirt or a romper. As this boot is a shorter style, my only advice would be to wear something cropped on the bottom. Tucking your jeans into these particular boots, will not look as attractive.
Both pairs of shoes are so different from each other. But they have one thing common, is that they add a touch of “coolness” to your look. And they are the only thing you need to create an effortlessly chic look.
What did you think of UGG‘s Spring/Summer 2017 collection? Do you find them more wearable and Spring appropriate? I am also curious to know which pair was your favourite?
Both of these shoes are currently available at the UGG store located at B1-141, Galleria Level, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. For more information on the latest collection please do visit their website – UGG.com.
