Let’s face it girls, the wet British weather looks set to stay for at least a little while longer, but just because the weather may be drab doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to be too. What better way to beat the cold than with some expert styling tips on how to transition your wardrobe from winter chill to spring rain with UGG Australia footwear.
Following the successful collaboration between UGG Australia and Poppy Dinsey for Autumn/Winter 2013, the fashion forward trend setter has offered us her expert fashion knowledge once again to show us girls how to style her favourite looks for Spring / Summer 2014.
Poppy rose to fame when her daily fashion blog ‘What I wore today’ (WIWT.com) attracted a mass of media attention from across the globe. With over half a million views per month, the blog offers readers the chance to view Poppy’s daily style choices using the extensive fashion collection she has amassed over the years. Building on her blog success, Poppy is now recognised as an expert in the fashion industry.
In this exclusive collaboration for Very.co.uk, Poppy shows us how to make the top trends for Spring / Summer work for the British weather, focusing her attention to the much loved and weather savvy UGG Australia range. Whether you’re looking for the comfort of a Classic for those blustery, cold days or a lighter, more agile shoe for the much anticipated Spring sunshine, Poppy can help guide you to a style that suits every occasion – come rain or shine!
Look 1: Rainy Days
Regardless of the season, where would we be without the much loved UGG Australia Classic Boot? Poppy shows us how to glamourise the wet British weather with these practical yet stylish all weather leather mini boots. “I’m not going to pretend I like the rain, but at least with the water resistant finish to the Classic Leather Minis I don’t have to worry about wet feet! These boots are really cute come rain or shine throughout the year, but in this colder part of the season match them with a checked mohair coat – it’s the perfect wrap up for blustery days.”
Look 2: Clashing print and texture
Commenting on her love for clashing prints and texture, Poppy talks us through her decision to pair this Love Label animal print dress with these gorgeous UGG Australia Laela woven plimsolls; ‘I love bold prints anyway but clashing print, colour and texture within one outfit is a really fashion-forward way to create a more unique look. The woven detail of the Laela Woven plimsolls helps soften the vibrant animal print to create an eye-catching yet chic daytime look’
Not forgetting the little ladies in our lives, Poppy also believes bright colours and bold patterns work on even the smallest of feet; ‘I’m forever playing dress up with my friends and their kids, they would love an attention grabbing pair like these Classic Leopard boots in bright fuchsia’.
Look 3: Soft Tailoring
Of course whatever the time of year our wardrobe wouldn’t be complete without a little something to take us through from day to night. Poppy tells us why these gorgeous UGG Australia Darling boots are the perfect style for special occasions or a girly night out. “All girls like a bit of extra height when it comes to a night out and these UGG Darling boots have a great block heel for that added lift without worrying about towering over anyone or tripping up! Soft tailoring is a big trend but one of the easiest ways to bring a sleek outfit together is by matching subtle tones. Here I’ve opted for a golden vest to compliment the soft tan colour of the boots.”
