Twas two days before Christmas when a little birdie told us that that ABC World News with Diane Sawyer would be featuring Huggrz Boot Wraps on their Made in America segment on Holiday Gifts on Dec. 23rd.  Currently, all boot covers made by Huggrz are manufactured in Michigan and Massachusetts. Huggrz is based in Troy, Michigan.

We’ve reposted this segment below. You have to watch all the way through to the end – but we think it’s worth it!

SheKnows calls Huggrz Faux Fur Boot Wraps Faux-mazing

Posted on: December 6th, 2011 by Hugrz

Huggrz a “must have” gift for a glamour girl?  We like the sound of that. Here’s what SheKnows had to say when they included Huggrz in this year’s Glamour Girl Gift Guide:

FAUX FUR

Real fur may be a fashion faux pas, but faux fur says “glamour girl” in a way that no other fabric does. Help your glamorous friend layer in style with the gift of a faux fur vest, like this one by Vintage Havana.

If a vest isn’t quite your friend’s style, consider giving her glamorously casual footwear like the Cozzycrocs Fuzz Bootie in brown-black. They instantly jazz up a pair of skinny jeans, and they’re comfortable, to boot.

If she needs a less expensive way to achieve a high-end fur look, get her a pair of Huggrz Boot Wraps in Grooved Black Mink. For less than $40, your friend’s high-heeled boots get an instant makeover and end up looking faux-mazing.

How to choose the right boot cover

Posted on: December 5th, 2011 by Hugrz

Boot covers are popping up all over the place these days as the hottest new fashion accessory must-have.  But how do you make sure to choose the right ones?

Quality materials.  Does that faux fur boot cover look like it’s part of the boot, or does it look like you’re wearing a Muppet on your feet?  Does the sweater boot cover hold it’s shape or look like an old sock or sweater sleeve pulled down over your boot. Boots take a beating. You need a boot cover that is sturdy enough to hold up to the elements. Boot covers or wraps shouldn’t be stretched, stained and misshaped after a single wearing.  Higher quality materials will last longer and look better after multiple wearings and washing.

Nikki Minaj in colorful boot covers with willow smithFit.  Do your boot covers stand up alone or do they need that elastic? Using an elastic can give boot covers a “pinched” look, making it obvious that they are more like a legwarmer ON your boot, not a part of the boot. That’s the difference between “boot covers” and “boot wraps.” Boot wraps are made to wrap around your boot without the need for that elastic at the top.  People say “NICE boots,” not “where did you get that cover?”

Height. Boot covers come in different lengths. Some of them are so long that they go up to your knee.  This works if you’re going for the go-go/rave club look or happen to be Nikki Minaj filming a music video with Willow Smith.  For the rest of us, boot covers that go up to the knees cut off legs at an unflattering point. Boot wraps that end mid-calf not only fit on your boots, but they can make your legs look skinny, too.  At Huggrz, we make our boot wraps perfectly proportional so that they can be scrunched down on short boots, or pulled up on long boots.  If they’re too tall, boot covers will look too poufy when they are fitted to short boots. 

Accessories. A boot cover, is just a boot cover, is just a boot cover. But, consider a boot wrap that can do much more.  Huggrz Boot Wraps come with accents like toggles or fringe, and many have a signature button that adds a bit of class and can be used to add great accessories. Change the look with pom-poms, feathers, or Huggrz’s suede crisscross lacing.  Between the 19 styles PLUS the multiple accessories, you have endless ways to change the look of your boots.

The newest Bravo-lebrity Style Expert and Author of The Bra Book, Jené Luciani, premiered her guest-starring role on Bravo’s hit show Mad Fashion on Tuesday night. The episode, entitled “Brastrocity,” revealed the creation of the world’s first couture BRA DRESS created by Chris March and team.

Luciani, no stranger to the small screen (she is a regular on NBC’s TODAY along with many other outlets and has appeared on the Style Network and the Discovery Channel, to name a few) is a regular fixture in print and online magazines. Of her first Bravo experience, she says, “working with Chris and team was a fashion girl’s dream come true. Together, we created something that was one of a kind.” Last night, she donned a couture feather confection made especially for her by Constance McCardle.
