So, you have bought a pair of Ugg boots.

A mainstay of noughties fashion, they provoke intense memories of singing Beautiful Girls by Sean Kingston in the mirror while slathering Barry M glitter eyeshadow all over your lids.

It was a time to be alive, in love and severely self-conscious.

We look back on it fondly, but like all teenage memories, we don’t particularly want to go back in time like Marty McFly.

Uggs were to stay in the past and never haunt the ground we walked on ever again.

However, in today’s fashion universe, trends always return, and with the current Y2K fashion obsession, it was only a matter of time before Uggs came back to mug us all off once more.

For the second coming of Uggs, the ultra mini version is favoured by the sartorial elite.

Unbelievably cute, it’s hard not to fall in love instantly.

Maybe it’s the nostalgia, the stupidly soft interior or the fact that the pandemic has given us a newfound appreciation for slippers, but Uggs are catching eyes and hearts.

And frankly, we are here for it.

Unfortunately, Uggs are now tricky to style. Back in the good ol days, all you needed was an Abercrombie & Fitch zippy, black leggings, and you were ready to take the high street by storm.

Nowadays, fashion has moved on, and styling Uggs comes with a little more forethought.

But to help with this style dilemma, we are taking pointers from some fashionable women who are making Uggs relevant again in 2022.

Alexa, play Sean Kingston’s Beautiful Girls ASAP.
