As fashion obsessed as we are, Hugrz can’t help but follow others who share our love for style.

Comeback Trend: Leg Warmers

Posted on: November 14th, 2012 by Hugrz


We’ve all had our fair share of trends that we wish would stay hidden in the back  of the fashion closet and those that we pray make a glorious, fabulous and well deserved comeback. Hugrz can’t help but rejoice for the revival of the leg warmer over the last couple of seasons.  Although slightly updated from it’s 80’s counterpart, this trend still brings a touch of fun and detail to any outfit. Pair with tights and a pair of studded flats or wear under your favorite boots.  While Hugrz themselves are FAR from leg warmers, the great knit boot wraps in the Bennington Collection are so versatile they can be worn as legwarmers too! 

Our suggestion? Check out Hugrz Bennington Collection for our favorite knits and prepare to become inspired.  From the neutral Charcoal Tweed to the fiery Flame Knit, you are sure to find the product that takes your outfit from mundane to daytime chic.  Wear them over the boots to get the look of the sweater boots on the market.  Wear under your boots to get the look of a boot cuff.  Wear with leggings and flats to get the look of legwarmers.  One product —- so many fun ways to wear it!

 Until next time,

Hugrz: Made in America

Posted on: August 1st, 2012 by Hugrz

Despite the “Olympic Wardrobe Malfunction of 2012” –  American-made apparel is not dead.   In fact, there is a RETURN of manufacturing to the USA, and strong speculation that we could be on the cusp of  revival of “Made in America,” with workers paid good wages for building things again. The gap between the cost to produce goods in the United States or to produce them abroad has narrowed, thanks to a decrease in China’s competitive advantage. Products such as your very own Hugrz boot wraps are made right here in the USA — in the hard hit manufacturing sector of Michigan to be exact! Hugrz are one of the growing list of popular fashion brands are made here.  There are over 50 exhibiting at the MAGIC trade show this month, including American Apparel, N.Y.L.A., and Red Engine Jeans. What do you think about this new trend? Are you more likely to buy clothing that is made in our country? Vote and comment Below!
