Here’s the first of several posts about our week at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. The stars were bundled up and braving the weather which made our Hugrz the perfect fashion accessory for anyone who forgot to bring their fur boots.  The Huggrz Boot Wrap’s Aspen Collection helped everyone style their boots into the hottest fashion. In addition, the celebrities liked the fact that Huggrz Boot Wraps are made in America and are faux fur – making us the perfect Sundance Swag.  We spent our week in the Alive! Expo and below is a small taste of some of the celebrities we got to meet.

Huggrz Boot Wraps featured in USA Today 2011 Holiday Gift Guide

Posted on: December 12th, 2011 by Hugrz

Seems that everyone is gifting boot covers from Huggrz Boot Wraps this year. But, why not? It’s one-size-fits-all, plus many of the styles are warm and cuddly and all are priced at under $50.  Whether it’s for Christmas, Hanukah, or even a winter birthday, we think the woman (or girl) in your life would love some Huggrz!  So does USA Today. Here’s what they had to say:

If you dream of having a closet full of boots, but your finances won’t permit it, take a look at Huggrz boot wraps from DB Designs LLC, Troy, Mich. With many patterns, colors, and prints to choose from, Huggrz slip right over your existing boots to create a whole new look. Originally designed for [shearling]-style boots, they adapt easily to many additional styles.

Huggrz [$28-$44] come in three fashion collections: Aspen, which includes [nine] styles in soft faux fur; Santa Fe, which has [four] styles (black zebra, brown leopard, [baby brown leopard], and grey leopard) in 100% acrylic with a soft fur feel; and Bennington, which offers six styles in classic cotton sweater knit including cable and fair isle.

They can be worn pulled up on tall boots or scrunched down on short ones, or you even can pull them up on your legs to make your short boots look tall. What’s more, these fabulous accessories offer accessories of their own: Faux fur pom poms in mink, beaver, pink panther, and rabbit, and acrylic pom-poms in brown, black, and pink. Each pair has a loop at the top to hand over a button. Criss Cross Lacing also is available to add a finishing touch to your boot warps. In black, tan, and chocolate, these five-foot long laces are accented with silver tone beads.

SheKnows calls Huggrz Faux Fur Boot Wraps Faux-mazing

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.
