Short Uggs with knee length (or slightly shorter) tea dresses......what do we think?

I am considering purchasing some chestnut short Uggs. However, am wondering if they only look good with skinny jeans. I have far too many pairs of shoes which only get worn occasionally because they only go with a particular thing.

Most of my winter wardrobe is made up of tea dresses. Would uggs look awful with a tea dress and opaques/leggings?

(BTW.....why are they called tea dresses???? hmm )

I implore you not to.
I also implore you not to even contemplate wearing Uggs with anything.
They are vile.

(Sort of thing one wore to take tea in days of youre.)

biker boots better.

I just want some warm brown boots. My feet are always so cold in winter. I have looked at Fly Mols today online but whilst I think they are nice, they are not right for me.

Thanks for the explanation of tea dress That was what I thought it probably was but wondered if I was missing some other important sartorial reference!

I have biker boots in black. I love them but the black can see quite harsh against some of my prettier dresses.

Do I now need biker boots in brown now instead of Uggs then?

brown biker boots, warm socks.

you can get Dr martens in all kinds of colours: a friend of mine once had a lovely green velvet pair.
they'll look less harsh against your lovely floaty, feminine dresses.

although i like the look, i think you'd need to be younger than 25 to pull it off.

if you are, then good, if you're not, please consider wearing normal knee length boots (in any colour)

I think these are great but maybe too pricey and not trendy enough?

mwff Sat 03-Oct-09 13:48:36

you loaded? these just jumped out at me as i was passing if you want warm brown boots. (i think they're yeuch, but no accounting for taste )

nickelbabe - did DMs as a student 17 years ago. Think DH would divorce me if I ever returned to those boots!

Sadly, 25 is many moons ago now for me. Am 38 years old.

Okay am definitely warming to the brown biker boots idea.

Moondog - which Hobbs ones did you mean? I have knee length black heeled boots from Hobbs which I bought 5 years ago. They are fab and still going strong so I am happy to pay their prices as I think they are good quality and worth the money.

Agree with you mwff, those are yeuch!

How about these though, also from Toast and lots of pennies.

I wear my uggs with tea dresses in the winter. So does my sister, so thats 2 people who may not find many more on here grin

moondog Sat 03-Oct-09 13:53:57

I was looking at Reese but St marys nice too.
I've got a pair of Hobbs black boots that i love.
Also a long pair of sort of nubuck biker boots from Russell & Bromley who don't seem to sell online.

Mwff, those are ghastly. grin

moondog Sat 03-Oct-09 13:54:41

Tulpe i don't like those other ones either. Too flat-you need a chunky hell.t

mwff Sat 03-Oct-09 13:54:45

these better

moondog Sat 03-Oct-09 13:56:05

Mwff, I could buy those in a building cvontractors for about £10.

mwff Sat 03-Oct-09 13:57:18

well indeed, but we were talking toast and the style is better than the long ones.

tulpe Sat 03-Oct-09 14:01:26

How about this style?

or are those totally wrong?!

Don't like the shorty Toast ones. I would look too granny like and I feel my calves would fill them out too much

tulpe Sat 03-Oct-09 14:04:19

or how about these from Rocket Dog (don't know the brand but think I have seen them mentioned on MN).

moondog Sat 03-Oct-09 14:09:10

They're alright.
Are you very thin because only thin folk get away with stuff like that?

Hoppity Sat 03-Oct-09 14:10:08

I think uggs look most unbattractive.........but also warm and practical (esp when carrying baby in scarf)

so i am tempted to get a pair simply based on: when was the last time we saw something highly fashionable and yet snug and easy to wear?

tulpe - go for a pair and i will follow

tulpe Sat 03-Oct-09 14:14:23

Hoppity. You are tempted by uggs for the very same reasons as me.

Moondog, I am size 8-10. Wouldn't say I was "very thin" but definitely slim

mwff Sat 03-Oct-09 14:16:25

first ones good, not keen on strappy bits on second lot. rocket dogs are usually not leather i think - those ones aren't.

moondog wrong re v thin btw

mwff Sat 03-Oct-09 14:18:34

but they're not practical are they - can't wear in rain.

tulpe Sat 03-Oct-09 14:22:01

Bugger! Thanks for pointing out fact they aren't leather, mwff. Brain not working properly and missed the "leather look" label on the web page <<shudders at thought and impact of non-leather shoes on feet >>
