Are Ugg Boots Appropriate for a Dressier Look?


UGG boots might be the comfiest shoes you have in your closet, but that doesn't mean they're appropriate for all occasions. Although these fleece-interior Australian sheepskin boots are luxe, UGGs are best used in those cold weather months or for quick errands. When attempting a dressier look, leave the UGGs at home.

Dressing Up

  • Wearing UGG boots in public is not quite the equivalent of wearing sweats or slippers in public, but it's close. Match your footwear to the rest of your outfit; UGGs are not appropriate with a dressier outfit and will ruin any attempt. Instead, try heels or dress shoes when aiming for a dressier look. Closed toe flats or embellished sandals can also be good alternatives for a dressier style.

When UGGs are Appropriate

  • Instead of trying to make your UGGs work with a dressier outfit, find the right time and place to wear them. UGGs are best paired with jeans, which can be tucked into the boots; leggings, which can easily fit inside the UGGs, or a bohemian chic look, like a flowy dress. Pairing your UGGs with clothing basics in a casual setting is the best way to pull off these shoes.

UGG Boot "Do's"

  • DO wear them at home: UGGs keep your feet warm and cozy while trying to save on the electric bill.

    DO wear them to pick up takeout: No need to dress up for dinner if it's going back home with you.

    DO wear them when your friends come over to watch a movie: Assuming they are close enough friends, this situation still falls under Rule 1.

    DO wear them to the grocery store: As long as it's the neighborhood market, UGGs are appropriate.

UGG Boot "Don'ts"

  • DON'T wear them to a nightclub: As per the dress code, you will probably not be allowed in.

    DON'T wear them out to dinner: Upscale restaurants might also have a dress code. If not, wearing UGGs still may be considered disrespectful.

    DON'T wear them to work: Unless your boss approves, UGG boots are never appropriate in a professional environment.

    DON'T wear them to exercise: For your safety, do not wear UGGs to workout.
