Australia's famous Ugg brand boots are a fashionable, functional trend in the United States. The Classic Cardy Boot is merino-wool blend that resembles the fabric of a beloved, weathered sweater. Incorporating the Classic Cardy Ugg Boot into your wardrobe is easy to accomplish with a little footwear-fashion styling knowledge.
Purchase a pair of Ugg's Classic Cardy Boots. The Cardy is a tall-styled boot (14.5 inches), designed for comfort, style and durability. While many colors are available, choose a darker, neutral-toned hue for versatile outfitting (such as black and gray). Additionally, darker colors will mask dirt more efficiently than the lighter Cardy shades.
Choose a size smaller than your usual boot size. According to the Ugg manufacturer, Classic Cardy's run a whole size larger. They suggest you order a full size and a half smaller if you are between shoe sizes. It's best to try the Ugg boots on at a reputable store (such as Nordstrom) before purchasing. Ensure the boots fit snugly around the foot, without feeling uncomfortable.
Boycott the socks. Ugg Classic Cardy Boots are designed to be worn barefoot. Relish in foot comfort and softness while running errands or attending class. The authentic sheepskin sockliner inside the boot pulls moisture, such as sweat, away from the skin's surface, keeping feet smooth, dry and odor-free.
Pull your Ugg Classic Cardy Boots over skinny jeans. For a trendy outfit on a brisk day, tuck your tapered jeans into your Cardy's to show off the unique boot styling and visually lengthen the leg. Consider pairing the outfit with a lightweight scarf or woolen jacket for added finesse.
Outfit Ugg Cardy Boots with wide-legged denim styles. Cuff the jean once or twice to allow the boot's unique fabric to be a focal point of the outfit. Pair with a fitted top, tailored blouse or menswear vest.
Wear Cardy boots with skirts and shorts. Ugg boots are often worn to show off great-looking legs, and the Cardy boot is a perfect complement for above-the-knee bottoms. Utilize a neutral-toned Ugg Cardy to compliment a brightly-patterned short skirt or denim shorts. Consider pairing Ugg Classic Cardy Boots with leggings or tights. Experiment outfitting options by mix-and-matching colors, patterns and fabric textures.
Care for your Ugg Australia Classic Cardy Boots to ensure long-lasting wear. This boot style is a wool blend made with additional materials, such as suede and sheepskin. Follow the Ugg brand instructions for proper boot care (see References) and consider purchasing the Ugg Boot Care Kit, sheepskin cleaner and conditioner to protect your Cardy Boots from the elements.
