Hello Autumn! This is one season I always welcome with open arms. I love everything about it – the crisp cool weather, pumpkin spice lattes, the changing of the leaves. And let’s not forget fall fashion. I dream of cashmere jumpers, big wooly scarves and fur-lined boots.
It brings me such joy when the temperatures drop and it’s time to break out the boots. But please, whatever you do, do not reach for the UGGs. It seems everyone owns them despite knowing they shouldn’t.
I’m not hating on the brand as a whole, just the classic style that takes your legs from fab to stunted tree stumps in mere seconds. It doesn’t matter if they are just for the school run or around the house. If a shoe can make Kate Moss look dumpy, what hope is there for the rest of us?
You can be comfortable without having to commit one of fashion’s biggest faux pas. Here are my top picks for keeping comfortable without sacrificing your style.
These Seven Boot Lane Kylie boots are my top pick. I actually bought these and it broke my heart to return them, but they made my feet look really big. Note: my feet ARE really big, I wear a UK size 8. So I’d say these are perfect for those a size 6 and under, sadly. Plus Seven Boot Lane have very kindly given me a special discount offer to share – enter LOLO15 at checkout and you’ll get 15% off (you can use it on ANY new season style until 26/10/17)!
If you’re a converse girl, then these Chuck Taylor high tops are perfect. They are classically cool and will never go out of style. They come in grey too!
These are the only actual UGGs on my list. They have all the cosiness with none of the ugliness! Super cute and versatile – they are on my wish list after having to return the Kylies.
For a more traditional boot style these Boden beauties tick all the boxes. They come in three different colours but my fave is the grey with a contrasting yellow zip pull. The sheepskin lining looks oh so soft!
The bargain beauties are from Tesco and a mere £28! They come in brown and black and are water resistant.
If you’re usually just housebound in your UGGs, these slippers are a great alternative. They actually looking very similar to the branded version but are much more affordable! I’m actually on my own second pair after I wore out the first – they are sooo comfy!
What do you think, will you swap your UGGs for something more stylish this season? Or can you not live without them?
