Coziness and comfort are two important factors when we shop for clothes and shoes. We buy not solely based on style and looks, but also on how well clothes wear, especially shoes.
With people getting more and more aware of the risks of living a sedentary life, they are trying to be more active and walking is the activity of choice for many. It is easy, it can be done by mostly everyone and most importantly, it is free.
That, on the other hand, has caused people to look into better-fitting shoes that are first and foremost comfortable.
During winter, though, sneakers are not a popular choice. Most of them let water in and not to mention the cold. So boots is where it’s at.
We have looked at several boots in our previous selections, ranging from different designs, styles and types. Today, we are not only going to look at a specific type of boots, but also see if they are still trending and a good fashion choice.
You’ve seen the title, it’s all about the UGG boots today.
Ladies, let’s get real for a minute here. These boots are incredible to wear. Be it in comfort or durability, you cannot compare Uggs to any other design out there.
However, what we want to focus on in today’s article, is whether you can wear them in 2018. Well, you certainly can, but should you?
Some might have an immediate “No” reaction to that question. There are some people out there that strongly dislike these boots because of how they look.
If you ask us, and we have also said this before, they aren’t the best looking ones, but if you style them properly they can just blend in with the rest of the outfit.
This leaves you with comfort and happy feet, without sacrificing your reputation as the local fashionista. We will get into how to style them in a little.
Uggs in 2018: Hot or Not?
Get comfy ladies because we will be here a while. We would rather settle this matter once and for all today, so things will be quite elaborated.
Where are we basing all of this we are about to write, you ask? We take our job here very seriously and scour the internet through and through in search of the best and most accurate information. This goes for all of our other reviews and articles, too.
When it comes to topics like this one, it can be a bit challenging to come to a definite conclusion, as style and fashion are very personal things. What is beautiful to some, is absolutely horrendous to others and frankly, no one is right or wrong about any of this. Different strokes for different folks, as the saying goes. But trends, on the other hand, are a good indicator of whether you should wear something.
Such is the case for the matter at hand. Are Uggs still trending in 2018? To the dismay of some among you, yes they are.

In fact, if we are to look at this truthfully, they never went out of style. Sure, you wouldn’t wear them everyday or each time winter rolled around, but they were still there in the back of your shoe closet. Nothing to be ashamed of, really, as that’s the case for many.
Uggs boots are just that, boots. Just like other shoes (or clothes) you like them for a while, then you get kind of sick at wearing them and months after you find the beauty in them again. It’s just how we humans are.
What do experts say on the matter? Well, this is also a divisive point as some don’t mind them, some love them and the rest would rather they were wiped off the face of the Earth.
The brand has recently collaborated with some catwalk brands and Uggs were worn by models, in an attempt to bring them back into the public’s attention. How successful was this? People are once again talking about them, so this campaign (sort of) got the attention it wanted.
But frankly speaking, few people follow catwalks and fashion shows. What we look at when it comes to our next shopping spree are celebrities. And boy oh boy do they love their Ugg boots.
From the famous singer Rihanna, actresses Kate Moss and Sienna Miller and supermodel Gigi Hadid, these boots are still being worn by celebrities on their everyday life. And who can blame them, really? They are easy to put on and be it rain or shine you are good to go.
Another thing to consider, since we have probably said the word comfort too much already, is that comfort does not always equate support.
While these are boots you can walk in for long hours and your feet won’t feel too fatigued, there are some concerns about the outsoles, but that is mostly for imitations of this boot.
The genuine UGG boots have sturdy yet soft outsoles that do support the legs and spine. They are also designed to be anti-slipping so that you can wear them in both wet and dry surfaces.
Have you ever dreamed of being a cowgirl, but couldn’t come to terms with that type of boot? Well, UGG has a surprise for you, girls. High heel Uggs, go figure. They are warm, that’s for sure.
With a pair of jeans on and you can finally be the woman you envisioned in your head.
There are other new designs by the brand, such as the sandal-boot hybrid. We will go right ahead and say it. What they (most certainly) lack in looks, they make up for in comfort and support. You can proceed at your own risk.
Despite there being several Uggs’ designs you can always rely on jeans to save the day.
Jeans go with everything and that is also the case with these boots. As for the top, go crazy girl. Wear whatever you’d like as you are sure to rock that look!
Tights and leggings are also suitable to be worn with Uggs. Especially faux leather ones and we have just the design for you.
How about skirts and dresses? If you are feeling a bit adventurous, sure, but they aren’t the most complementing thing to each other.
An interesting thing you can do with your long Uggs is to turn the shaft inside out. This shows the fluffiness on the outside, which is quite adorable, if you ask us.
Now it’s time for the selection of Uggs we would recommend. We’ve kept it short and neat, with just 5 options for you to look at, that might rekindle and fuel your love for these boots.
We think that suggesting options is helpful, especially after such a lengthy discussion about them.
They help you create a better idea of what to look for and who knows, maybe you will come across something you really like.
