In short, the answer is No. No, it is never too soon to break out the UGG boots! And don’t shoot the messenger, because I never even put mine away. Of course, I refrained from wearing them in public during New York City’s 98-degree summer, but they always sat by my bedroom door, my go-to shoe when running downstairs to pick up packages or to my apartment building’s freezing-cold laundry room. Ugg boots are a year-round staple in my book—but for those of you who only want toasty toes come fall and winter, the answer is still no. No, it’s not too soon to break ’em out.
UGG boots are truly some of the only boots that have managed to stand the test of time in the fashion world. Remember those Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boots you were desperate for in college? Now, you’re craving something knee-high instead. What about the Steve Madden combat boots you drooled for in high school? Hard pass, you’re into chunky lug soles now.
But dear, sweet, fluffy UGGs have remained a cold-weather essential, even if how we’ve styled them has changed. Tween me lived to pair my mid-calf black UGG boots with black leggings and a denim mini skirt. Now, 26-year-old me prefers to rock them for errands ‘fits when I’m not pretending I’m Hailey Bieber being chased by the paps. That said, there have been some major celeb sightings in UGG boots—Kaia Gerber, Selena Gomez and J. Lo are all fans!
I’m partial to the classics and the newer mega-short Ultra Minis, but there are tons of Ugg boot options on the market these days, from understated staples to major stand-outs with bright colors, laces and more. Personally, I find the old-school silhouettes and colorways have a charm all their own. Below, read on for some fashion-friendly UGG boots it’s definitely not too soon to start wearing.
You have my blessing. Go forth and be cozy!
