There’s a reason Ugg boots are so popular – beyond being fashionable, they are extremely comfortable. During the winter, it seems almost everybody, from celebrities and models to schoolchildren and working adults, pulls out a pair of Uggs to stay warm. Uggs are a versatile boot that come in many different colors and styles, and pair well with a variety of casual cold weather outfits. Investing in a pair of Uggs will keep your feet cozy in the cold, and provide you with a great accessory for fall and winter.

Deciding Which Uggs Are Best For You

  1. Image titled Wear Ugg Boots Step 1
    Pick a style. When people think of Uggs, the first image that comes to mind is the classic monochrome sheepskin boot. Comfy and soft, the original Uggs come in two styles – essential tall and classic short. Though these are great options, the Ugg company now makes a variety of different boots that suit different needs. Choose a style that best compliments your wardrobe and lifestyle.
    • If you’re looking for a boot that is simply comfortable and warm, one of the classic styles might be the best choice. The classic short is a bit more subtle if you don’t want your boots to be immediately noticeable, while the essential tall is a more visible addition to your outfit.
    • If you want a boot that’s waterproof and a bit more durable in harsh weather, Ugg has lots of options to offer. While their alternative boots don’t have the classic, recognizable sheepskin Ugg look, they’re both fashionable and functional. For example, the Adirondack boot is made of waterproof leather and suede with wool lining on the inside for super low temps. Check out the Ugg website, http://www.ugg.com/women-boots/, for a full list of alternative styles.

    Choose the right color. When it comes to choosing the color of your Uggs, you should consider how this will complement your complexion, hair color and wardrobe. Lighter hair colors and complexions tend to pair well with a natural earth tone such as chestnut or brown, whereas a darker hair color or complexion looks great with deeper colors such as black, grey, or blue. Most importantly, pick a color that you love!
    • If you have a lot of warm colors (red, yellow, orange) in your wardrobe, consider a tan or brown boot. The combination of warm colors and tan/brown boots gives you a natural look. If you’re more into neutral colors (black, grey, white) a more neutral boot would pair nicely with your wardrobe. [1]

    Select an appropriate material. Snow and rain will ruin your classic sheepskin Ugg boots. While meant for cold weather, this style of Uggs is not waterproof. In places that have chilly winters but not a whole lot of snow, a classic sheepskin boot could be a great choice, since they won’t have as many opportunities to get wet. If you live in a place with consistent snowfall such as the Northeast or Midwest, it might be worth it to look into Ugg boots made with durable waterproof materials.

Picking An Outfit To Go With Your Uggs

  1. Image titled Wear Ugg Boots Step 4
    Wear Uggs with long pants. Uggs are meant to be worn in cold weather, which means they go best with fall or winter clothes. Try tucking trendy jeans into your Uggs if you want the boots to be the star of your outfit. For a more subtle look, wear flared pants over your Uggs. Be bold and try out a pair of dark red or green skinny jeans, but be sure to color coordinate with your boots![2]
  2. Image titled Wear Ugg Boots Step 5
    Sport a pair of leggings. If you’re more into leggings than pants, wear your Uggs over a pair of warm leggings. You can wear single shade leggings in an earth tone for a classy look, or a patterned pair to spice things up. Combine with a loose sweater or top and you’re good to go!
  3. Image titled Wear Ugg Boots Step 6
    Feel free to wear a skirt or cute dress. As long as you’re also wearing tights or leggings, go ahead and wear a blouse and skirt or winter dress with your Uggs. As a rule of thumb, though, make sure your outfit is relatively casual. Uggs aren’t meant to be worn with ball gowns.
  4. Image titled Wear Ugg Boots Step 7
    Accessorize. Don’t be afraid to dress up your Uggs with some fun accessories. Throw on a puffy vest or a big scarf to keep warm and look fashionable.[3] Since Uggs are monochromatic, spice up your outfit with some long earrings, a necklace, or a brightly colored winter hat.
  5. Image titled Wear Ugg Boots Step 8
    Avoid wearing Uggs with formal clothing. Uggs, though trendy and high end, are meant to be a casual accessory. They’re generally not appropriate for work, or a formal dress event such as a wedding. Wearing Uggs with fancy clothing will look unnatural and will make the boots stick out in an unpleasant way. Instead, wear when hanging out with friends, to a casual meal, to university, or to work (depending on the accepted dress code of your job).
    • One of the best things about Uggs – you can wear them with sweatpants! Tuck a pair of sweats into Uggs when you’re running errands on a lazy winter day. Pair with a tight long sleeve shirt and you’ll be warm, comfortable, and casually fashionable.[4]
  6. Image titled Wear Ugg Boots Step 9
    Don’t wear Uggs in warm weather. No matter how much you love your Uggs, try not to wear them in warm weather. Though comfortable, Uggs are sheepskin boots designed to keep your feet warm. If you wear them in warm weather, you not only run the risk of making a fashion faux pas, but also ruining your boots with excess sweat.

Taking Care Of Your Uggs

  1. Image titled Wear Ugg Boots Step 10
    Wear socks. Though it may be tempting to wear Uggs barefoot, the sweat and bacteria on your feet will shorten the lifespan of your boots. Perspiration and bacteria get into the wool lining, damaging the boots and creating an unfriendly odor. Wearing socks will keep your boots looking and smelling fresh for longer.[5]
    • If you do get an unwanted odor, try sprinkling some baking powder into your Uggs and let sit overnight. Baking powder kills bacteria and removes bad smells. Even if your boots don’t have a particularly pungent odor, putting some baking powder in the lining over the summer will keep them fresh for next season.[6]
  2. Image titled Wear Ugg Boots Step 11
    Avoid getting wet. Classic Uggs are, unfortunately, not waterproof. Wearing your boots in the rain or snow will inevitably lead to the formation of bacteria, which causes bad odor. If you’re dying to wear your Uggs in wet weather, make sure to buy a waterproofing spray to protect your boots.
  3. Image titled Wear Ugg Boots Step 12
    Treat stains and keep your boots clean. If your boots become stained or water damaged, use a leather or suede shampoo that you can pick up from your local pharmacy. Scrub your boots down and let sit overnight. Stuff with newspaper to help with drying and to retain shape. Be aware that some shampoos lightly change the color of your boots, but will leave them looking good as new.[7]
    • If you have a particularly nasty grease or oil stain, sprinkle with talcum powder, cornstarch, or chalk and let sit overnight.
    • If you have a harder stain, such as wine or marker, try spraying a little hairspray on the trouble spot and let sit for a few hours. Then coat with a bit of dish soap and allow to dry. You can repeat this process as many times as necessary until the stain is gone.[8]

    Fold up your leggings and spray your lower calf/ankle with hairspray. Fold down your leggings while the spray is still wet and tacky.

    You shouldn't, because doing could lead to deeply entrenched odors and ruin the inside of your boots, slowly shortening the lifespan of your Uggs.

  • Can Ugg boots be worn with skirts and blouses?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Yes! If done right, it can look super cute, kind of a SoCal Boho look crossed with A&F prep. The look is only appropriate into your mid-to-late 20's, though...

    • Keep your Uggs in the original box when you are not wearing them to retain freshness.
    • You can buy cleaning products that are specifically made for Ugg boots to maintain them. Check out the Ugg website to purchase their line of Ugg care products.
    • Look up images of celebrities or models in Uggs to get more ideas on fashionable ways to sport your boots.


    • Never put Ugg boots in the washing machine, as this can damage them.
    • When wearing Uggs in wet, snowy conditions, beware of the salt that is often along roads and walkways! Salt can leach into the boots and leave behind hard, white salt marks that can be difficult to remove.
    • Don’t wear your Uggs everyday. Though comfortable, Uggs, if worn too often, can damage your feet. They have relatively little support, which stresses your feet and ankles. Make sure you have a pair of good, supportive shoes to compliment your Uggs with during the winter to keep your feet healthy.[9]

    UGG Boot: How to Repair Them

    By Guy Gardner

    UGG boots are made using soft sheepskin and suede, which makes them one of the most comfortable and soft boots to wear. Unfortunately, suede and sheepskin are both more fragile forms of leather. Aside from damage to the sheepskin, worn-out soles and the unraveling of seam thread are problems that you may encounter with UGG boots. If your boots become damaged in any of these ways, you may be able to repair them and save yourself the cost of a new pair.


    Video of the Day


    Step 1

    Repair undone stitching with a needle and thick thread. Hold the seams in place with several safety pins. Carefully restitch the seam. Double-stitch the seam for a tight repair.


    Step 2

    Cover tears with a leather or suede patch. Place the patch over the tear and sew it in place with a needle and thread. The UGG boots will never look new again with the patch, but they will be functional.


    Step 3

    Take your UGG boots to a shoe repair store to replace worn-out soles. Look in the phone book under "shoe repair" or online. Resoling a pair of UGG boots can be quite expensive, so unless the upper part of the boots is still in excellent condition, you may be better off buying a new pair of boots.

                  No, seriously.

                  When a person likes make-up, leggings, Ugg boots, Starbucks, popular movies, popular songs, or going on Instagram, they have to call themselves “basic” or no one will like them.

                  If someone likes no make-up, jeans, sneakers, junk food, Animes/sci-fis/superhero movies, comics/mangas, or role playing online, they have to call themselves “nerd trash” or no one will like them.

                  Why do people have to insult themselves for what they like? Why do you care so much? Why do you judge them? People are allowed to like whatever the fuck they want to. They can like all of these, none of these, some of these in any mixture, anything goes. Stop trying to steal people’s happiness.
