The "ugly" winter boot you thought would never come back in style again is having a moment. All the celebrities you look to for fashion inspiration are keeping their toes toasty with this classic shoe. Gigi Hadid's black Ugg boots are a nostalgic throwback to the early aughts.
The model looked cozy as ever out in NoHo on Thurs. night. She wore her usual cropped puffer with a pair of drawstring leggings and the boots you used to wear in college. It might be early March, but temps in New York are still dipping below the freezing mark on a regular basis, forcing East Coasters to break out the big guns, which are, of course, their Uggs.
Hilary Duff, Reese Witherspoon, Rihanna, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have been wearing theirs around constantly lately. Even the high-fashion Sarah Jessica Parker has sported them between takes on the set of Divorce.
Now it's Hadid's turn with the fur-lined boots and the way she styled them could actually be the best Ugg look of them all. The model seemed delightfully cozy and warm bundled up in her all-black loungewear-like outfit, and her monochromatic footwear fits right in with the theme.
As you might know from the last time Uggs were on-trend, these iconic boots come in all shapes and colors (from navy blue to pink). While the brand does make different styles — snow boots, wellies, even fashionable ankle booties — the most recognized design is The Classic, their bestselling basic suede shoes.
Katie Holmes owns the chestnut color in classic short while Gisele Bündchen has sported them in the tall silhouette. Hadid, on the other hand, opted for the mini version in versatile black.
These celeb's looks are the approval you needed to finally cave into your Ugg cravings. Ahead, Hadid's boots and other Ugg classics to get you through the last little bit of winter.
