Safe to say the world is made up of two kinds of people: those who love and wear fake Uggs, and those who don’t.
And then there’s me. The idiot who changes her sartorial mind more often than a teenager says ‘omg’.
What is it about fake Uggs that leaves some appalled, some in a constant eye roll, some crazy in love still, and some in love behind closed doors? Is there an Ugg controversy, and if so – why? Cause they’re ugly? Since when has ugliness been a deal breaker in fashion?
Mhhm. That didn’t sound right, did it? However it is. Hello Birkenstocks, and the ugly shoe trend that has been a massive fad for the past 2 years or so. So why are we so quick to dismiss replica Uggs while snapping #OOTD pics in Birkenstocks? #doublestandard
The worst decade in fashion was none other than the 2000s, years and years of horrendous outfits paired with the ubiquitous big-foot like shoe – the Uggs. Winter, summer, nobody gave a shit, they were wearing fake Uggs with mini denim skirts and blue eyeshadow. Then fashion grew out of this teenage phase and became slightly sophisticated, which of course was incompatible with the ugly and slob replica Uggs. They became a huge faux pas.
Except… people never stopped wearing them behind closed doors. Girls were still in Uggs on their Saturday shopping walks, moms were still going for the ugly comfy boot when running errands, celebs still had them on in airports.
Nobody really gave them up. Sure, you didn’t see them front row at FW, but who’s to say Anna Wintour didn’t change into a pair once she got home? And would it be so bad if she had?
Are they really so ugly that even the ugly shoe trend is too pretty for them, or are we just blinded by the fashion must-be’s-and-must-do’s that we’d rather be a tad hypocrite than admit to an replica Uggs affair?
They are ugly as shit. Square. Lifeless. Big-foot style. Who the fuck wants a big-foot? BUT they’re super comfy I have heard (yes, I’ve never in my life put my feet into a pair), and they tend to cause addiction. With all this being said, I don’t thing their appearance is the issue here, more like their pairing into an outfit. And their 2000s legacy, or stigma if you will.
It’s not about what you wear but how you wear it, you know.
replica Uggs are ugly but they look kinda cool when worn in an undone outfit. Sort of like casual-undone-sporty-vacay-winter style-too-cool-for-fashion-young-adult-outfit.
