Be tickled pink by pastel coats

Monday, October 28th, 2013

The fashion rulebook has been thrown out. Rather than the dark shades which normally dominate our wardrobes at this time of year, pastels are reigning supreme as the hottest colours for Autumn/Winter 13. The most fashion forward among us are thinking pink, in particular the pink coats seen at the likes of Celine and Carven, which are one of the must-have items of the season.

Everyone from Kim Kardashian to Holly Willoughby has been spotted looking great in a candy floss coloured coat. Here’s our top tips for working one into your winter wardrobe.

Choose the right shade

First you need to choose the right shade of pink to compliment your skin tone. People with dark hair and olive skin can get away with sugary pale shades, but those with blonde hair or paler skin may want to go for a slightly darker rosy hue. Experiment with a few different shades before buying, the perfect pink for you is out there somewhere!

Go monochrome

Teaming your pink coat with a sophisticated monochrome ensemble will ensure you scream ‘preened’ rather than ‘pre-teen’. Plus the pink will really pop against the black and white.

Toughen it up

Pink doesn’t have to mean princess. Why not try adding some edge to your pastel coat. Toughen it up with leather and metal detailing and accessories. Skin-tight leather leggings or a pair of buckle detail boots like this Boy Front Zip pair will do the job perfectly.

Go for a mannish shape

Over-sized masculine-inspired coats are another hot trend this Autumn/Winter and the two work perfectly together. A feminine pink shade softens structured shoulders and boxy shapes while an androgynous style brings a pink coat to just the right side of girly.

UGG Spotlight on Talent Winner 2013

Friday, October 4th, 2013


Last season UGG Australia launched a competition in collaboration with London College of Fashion and OFFICE to scout out budding design talent in the UK. We received loads of fantastic entries, the level of creativity was incredible! We recruited the best in the business to help us pick the cream of the crop, including Sue Saunders (course director of Cordwainers at LCF), Aradia Crockett (fashion stylist), Seetal Solanki (young designer and St.Martin’s graduate) and Kitty McGee (Fashion Director at Stylist magazine). It was a tough job but our panel of experts eventually came to an agreement and elected their favourites. The top 3 designs were chosen for their affinity with the UGG® brand, keeping to the brief that asked for craftsmanship, style, comfort and quality materials. To show our support for young footwear designers, we awarded the winners cash prizes and workshops with the judges, but this season we’re also showcasing the 1st place design both in stores and online.

This Autumn/Winter we’re shining the spotlight on our winner with an exclusive tote bag featuring the number 1 design by Sofia Zetterstedt. There’s a limited number of them out there but if you’re quick you can get your hands on one, in-store or online now, free with every UGG Australia purchase. With plenty of room to carry all your bits and bobs in, we’re sure you’ll be getting lots of use of from it! Shop the full range from UGG Australia now to get yours.
