I must say, I’ve been a fan of Uggs since I was a teenager. I remember buying them when I lived in Dubai to only wear during the London summers, and ended up living in them whilst studying in London for four years at the London College of Fashion. Not an advertisement, but what’s so great about those shoes are the fact that they’re incredibly comfortable and keep you warm, but an airy kind of warm. I partnered up with Uggs to style up a few of their current collection, and must say I was pleasantly surprised with the styles they’ve launched for the Fall 2016 collection, as well as the variety – still keeping true to the brand with the quality, comfiness, and the warm cosy feeling. I also love the fact that the brand has been working with a few of my favorite style icons like Rachel Zoe and Rosie Huntington Whitely.
When it came to the boots, I wore one with a typical look I’d wear in London – skinny jeans and a jacket – the boots worked well to give it a grungy finish, as well as it being very comfortable to walk around in all day. For the second boot look, I went for something a little more bohemian that worked with the ankle booties – I liked the fact that the shearling fur was coming out of the boots.
For the sneakers, I liked how they were chic, had a mix of different textures and weren’t bulky to wear. I styled one look with a pair of denim overalls, whilst having a watermelon juice and coconut water – and catching up on emails. The leopard print really does add a little bit of jazz to the look, so it doesn’t look too plain. For the second sneaker look, I went for something a little simple – one I’d wear to walk around the city in when the weather starts cooling down. A pair of comfortable skinny jeans, paired with a contrasting yellow leather biker jacket. The black sneakers are more interesting than your typical one, especially because the brand has used a range of textures in one shoe.
I shot my looks in one of my favorite cafes in Dubai, Comptoir 102. A place I love to chill with friends over healthy and clean food – or for meetings over coffee or a glass of one of their healthy juices. There’s something so chic, and pretty about it, which makes me feel in my element.
