This fall, the runways were simply filled with faux fur. From sassy vests to snuggly satchels, trend setting designers took the use of faux fur to new heights. One of my favorite trends in faux fur, however, was the eye-popping, fur covered boots that models from both Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana were strutting in down the catwalk!
Although I can’t hope to own a pair of Chanel boots (they cost roughly a month’s salary, after all!) I can get the same look with a clever new designer accessory made to be worn over many types of boots, including my favorite Whooga boots!
The firm that creates these great accessories is called UWADUHI and has already distinguished itself through its innovative styles. Aptly named, UWADUHI comes from the Cherokee Indian Dictionary and means beautiful – and their designs surely are!
The boot covers are so easy to use. Simply slip them over your exiting boots and – voila! A completely new look! Plus, they are extremely versatile; you can wear UWADUHI full length from the top to bottom of your boot or even scrunched as a furry cuff.
UWADUHI boot accessories are also incredibly well made and the faux fur is so luxurious – it looks amazingly realistic.
This winter, the firm’s collection includes three completely different, luxe styles, and several color choices, too. For example, the Wapi (above) is soft and fluffy, designed to replicate Mongolian lamb fur. The Native American inspired ribbon with beaded tassel can be positioned at the side, front or back of your boot. When I first saw the Wapi, I was instantly reminded of ski vacations in Aspen (and chic snow bunnies in the lodge!). Available in black, natural or white. Retail $39.99
I also love the Lulu (shown, at right). This is a plush, “frosted” faux fur with playful poms poms which can be worn at either the side or front of your boot. Mine look stunning with dark gray suede boots and I’ve lost count of the many, many compliments I’ve received while wearing these! The Lulu is available in either Coco Brown or Ginger Tan. Retail $39.99
Finally, the Tala (pictured, left) offers a bold fashion statement. Available in trendy Camel, plus the addition of the colorful cotton trim, twisted and knotted end tassels, these will instantly transform your winter look. Retail $39.99
