5 Ways to Style Your New (or Old) Uggs

Uggs? Crew socks? Puffers? An Ugg campaign featuring our girl CHER?! ❤️‍🔥 This is sounding a lot more like 2009 and less like 2022, right? But don’t worry, whether you want to revive your decade-old Uggs or managed to get the new Ugg Mini II, Ugg Ultra Mini, Ugg Neumel, or platform slippers (Ugg Tazz, Ugg Tasman, or Ugg Disquette), we’ve seen it all at Curtsy and we are here to help you out.

Read on to see how to style your sweet sherpa kicks! We’re ranking these looks from dressed up to the most casual…

  1. Wide or straight legged trousers. Since we gave skinny jeans the kiss of death last year, we’ve been on the hunt for new ways to style our new favorite pair of trousers. Well, the good news is that the possibilities with Uggs are endless! Treat your trousers as you would with a good combat boot or your favorite sneaker: cuff your pants (show a little skin..or sock 😏) or flaunt the wide legged look by just letting them casually drape over the boot. This look works with any Ugg style.

    how to style uggs: trousers

  2. Denim. Take your favorite mom jeans or crisp white pair of denim and style them however you want with your Uggs. Similar to trousers, cuff ‘em, leave ‘em hanging, whatever you like. The fun part here is you can dress up your look with a button up and an oversized blazer or take the more casual approach with a hoodie and a statement coat.

    how to style uggs: with denim

  3. Leggings. Leggings? With Uggs? Groundbreaking. In all seriousness, this sounds like a no brainer, but dress up your Uggs with leather or wax-coated leggings or your favorite Gymshark, Lululemon, or Nike pair you snagged from Curtsy. Have fun with cool crew socks or a classic pair of socks from Nike. Throw on a cropped puffer or favorite wool winter coat.

  4. Flared yoga pants. Another comeback piece, yoga pants are no longer just for walking the dog or doing the downward dog. Style your Uggs and flared yoga pants with your go-to turtleneck sweater and an oversized blazer or a vintage crewneck and chunky gold jewelry. 🔑

  5. Sweatpants. This is a great way to continue the monochrome outfit look (remember all the neutral sweat suits you acquired in 2021?) and break up your look with Uggs. Tuck your sweatpants straight into the Uggs or layer them with crew socks. 🧦

    Did you catch our last Weekly Sale? 15% off all sweatpants and joggers. Catch it next time!

PS. Want to know how to clean your Uggs and care for them? Most of the recent styles will come pre-treated by Ugg directly but we’d recommend looking for a kit that has a cleaning AND weather treating solution. The kits with a brush and stain eraser are clutch. 💯 Now your Uggs are ready for all the elements!

How to Have a More Sustainable Black Friday

Learn how to turn your Black Friday into ♻️Green Friday♻️ by saving money AND the planet today!

Did you know the biggest shopping day of the year also has a big impact on the Planet due to higher production and shipping? When Black Friday deals drop there’s no reason we should drop our love for Earth too. Turn Black Friday into Green Friday by shopping the Curtsy way. Here’s how to find great deals that make a small impact on your wallet and the Planet. 

👋 Shop second hand (*cough-cough* CURTSY)

Spend Black Friday right by saving money AND the planet when you thrift shop. What’s your favorite online thrift store and why is it Curtsy 😉? There’s no better place to #extendthetrend and shop looks you love without all the guilt. Plus, every day feels like Black Friday with daily deals on the Curtsy app.

🛍 Support small & local 

This year it’s more important than ever to shop small, because many small businesses are feeling the impact of the pandemic. Show your support by shopping locally at a boutique or online at Etsy. Small shops offer just as great of deals as the big guys.

💚 Shop eco-conscious brands

We see major red flags when a brand is afraid of commitment (to us and the Planet). This weekend shop responsibly from the below list of eco-conscious brands we admire.

Girlfriend-collective (30% off everything)
Galerie.La (Buy one get one 30% off all clothing)
Able (25% off site-wide)
Naadam (40% Off)
Wild cosmetics (25% off site-wide)
Pact (25% Off)
Parade (40% Off)
Whimsy and Row (Up to 75% off )
Tentree (up to 50% off)
Levi’s (40% off + free shipping)
Aday (up to 30% off select styles)

✔️Keep calm and shop smart 

Impulse buys are fun, but knowing you took your time to find the best deal on what you actually need can be even better. This year make a list of what you need before you start shopping so you don’t gobble up every sale you see.

👯‍♀️Shopping in person? Buddy up!

Have plans to add fresh finds to an IRL shopping cart? Invite a wingman to your in-person adventure and carpool from store to store. Plus, don’t forget to bring along your reusable tote for your new items. The Planet will thank you!

How to Save the Planet 🌎 (and some $$$) This Fall

ICYMI…It’s 🍂Fall Y’all🍂 and don’t we love it! We fall hard for PSL, Fall scents and gourd-geous fashion at Curtsy. We know you have a long list of 🍁 faves, too. And, just because we want it all for Fall, doesn’t mean we can’t still show our love for the planet 🌎. Scroll along to see how you can live your best life, but make it eco-friendly this szn. 

  1. Thrift Your 🎃 Halloween Fits 🎃 

We love showing off our creative and drop-dead gorgeous style during Halloween. But, let’s creep it real 👻, we wear the costume to a few parties and then next year we want to be something completely different. That makes costumes the perfect thing to thrift. Feeling spooked because you don’t have a costume yet? Shop our Curtsy Curated Halloween list that we’re always adding Spooky Selections to 🎃 👻💀!

  1. ♻️Reduce and Reuse♻️ at Starbies: Show the Planet Some TLC When You PSL ☕️

Fall has you going to Starbucks on the daily. No judgement here, we love Starbies a latte too! What’s even sweeter? Getting buzzed on pumpkin spice and everything nice, but make it sustainable! Cancel single-use cups by popping inside your favorite Starbucks and filling up your best reusable mug with your Fall drink of choice ☕️ (our new favorite: apple crisp macchiato). Plus, you get a tiny discount for being so thoughtful. Win-win!

  1. Get Fresh with Cozy 🍂 Fall Trends 🍂

The Fall forecast is a 100% chance of cozy. And when you snuggle up to Fall trends you give off major Hot Girl Fall vibes by literally saving the heat 🔥. Cozy up your closet with trending cardigans and sweaters on Curtsy. You’ll feel so cool and will stay warmer this szn in your hot looks.

  1. Major Closet Cleanout 🧺

Bring in fresh Fall vibes with a style refresh. Sell last year’s wardrobe on Curtsy and then get some new Fall fits. Have items you can’t sell? We love organizations like The Bra Recyclers and Project Beauty Share where you can donate your pre-loved goods and do a ton of good 💚💚💚!

  1. Tote Up on Your Trader Joe’s Haul 🛒

Ready for another Fall Trader Joe’s haul!? Don’t forget your reusable tote tho! Need a tote refresh? We got you. Stock up on reusable totes on Curtsy.

  1. 🧖‍♀️Spa Smart 🧖‍♀️

Did you know plastic loofahs can be a little sus? They’re known to shed plastic microfibers down the drain. 😫  Plus, they end up wasting away in landfills. Go natural 🌿🌿! It’s better for your skin and the environment. This szn make sure to treat yo self, because you deserve it. But, let’s also treat the planet cause she’s a queen!

Thrifting & Other Sustainability Tips from Club Curtsy💚

It’s obvious here at Curtsy we support a circular economy and believe thrifting is a major player in shopping and selling sustainably. But how can you help out our earth in other aspects of your life? 🌎 We’ve got you!

Meet a few ✨awesome Stylists✨ from Club Curtsy’s Summer 2021 class below. 👇

Pro tip:We’re always sharing sustainability tips on our Instagram & TikTok. ♻️

<strong>Caroline Booth</strong>

🪴 Why I Love Thrifting: I love thrifting and shopping second hand because it’s better for the environment and cheaper as well! Additionally, with things like denim more wear is good because they’re more comfortable!
♻️ Sustainability Tip:
My favorite sustainability tip is to find clothing brands that align with your own values and goals (such as sustainable brands etc). I also like to reuse packaging like jars!

<strong>Madison Crain</strong>

🪴 Why I Love Thrifting:
I love shopping with curtsy and thrift stores in general because not only are the clothes cheaper, it is helping the environment! Not to mention, it is super easy to post the clothes you don’t want anymore on curtsy!
♻️ Sustainability Tip:
One of my sustainability tips is to try to use reusable bags when going to the store, wether that be the grocery store or shopping out and about! You can also use metal straws instead of plastic straws so you aren’t wasting any plastic, you can even buy the reusable Starbucks cups!

<strong><strong>Amanda Musumeci</strong></strong>

🪴 Why I Love Thrifting: I love thrifting because I get to rehome my clothes to someone who will appreciate them more than me. 
♻️ Sustainability Tip:
If I have one tip on staying sustainable its that anything that may seem old to you can be new to someone else! 

<strong><strong>Gia Maresca</strong></strong>

🪴 Why I Love Thrifting:
I’ve recently found a love for fashion- especially second hand. Thrifting/second hand shopping is such a great way to avoid buying fast fashion, which is unfortunately mistreating us, as well as our environment. Older pieces that I find to be my style are marked down significantly, so it’s easy to have a wardrobe full of what I WANT to wear! Thrifting is one of my favorite activities to do with my friends. Trying out new styles without breaking the bank is truly a fun and rewarding experience! 
♻️ Sustainability Tip:
My favorite sustainability tip is to purchase one or two reusable water bottles. I have two bottles that I switch between, and they’re great! Americans throw away 35 billion empty water bottles a year- and only 12% are recycled. Having a reusable bottle eliminates the waste, and I’ve also found that I’m excited to use it!

5 Easy Ways to Reduce Your Environmental Impact ♻️

Meet our Curtsy Stylists: Rachel, Ally, Grace, & Aaliyah
Meet our Curtsy Stylists: Rachel, Ally, Grace, & Aaliyah

Need some inspo on how to help reduce your carbon footprint and environmental impact? Read on!

  1. Shop & sell responsibly
    • 🛍️ Buy from:
      • Curtsy, duh — but really, the best way to keep up with fashion trends sustainably is to buy secondhand.
      • Facebook Marketplace — there are some GREAT finds out there for furniture. West Elm, Pottery Barn, vintage. Fun fact: our office furniture is all thrifted off of FB Marketplace thanks to our very own Clags!
      • Remake — a Curtsy partner, Remake has a brand directory where they rate brands you already know & love based on factors including: Human Rights, Climate, Water, and Waste. Discover new brands on there & shop them on Curtsy
    • ♻️ Give items a second, third, fourth, etc. life
      • Don’t waste any of your precious time in person at the thrift store. And do you really know where items you donate end up in? The majority end up in landfills. Instead, sell your items on a resale platform like Curtsy so you know they’re not going to end up in a landfill after you’re done with them.
  2. Rethink your beauty & kitchen tools
    • 💋 Beauty — Replace your disposable cotton swabs & pads with something reusable! I personally used to use those disposable make up wipes everyday but have since replaced them with reusable pads & a MakeUp Eraser
    • 🧋 Eat/drink — Try replacing your sandwich bags & saran wrap with beeswax wraps & silicone sandwich bags.Do you still drink your coffee & tea out of paper cups? Do you still buy plastic water bottles? Try reusable tumblers and mugs like these instead. There are SO many options out there.
  3. Watch these documentaries
    • 👗 The True Cost — an eyeopening deep dive into the fast fashion industry
    • 🌊 Seaspiracy — how our diets affect our ocean friends
  4. 🌎 David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet — our impact on nature

  5. Commute consciously — now there are plenty of ways to get around: carpool with friends, bike, scooter/moped, take public transportation, or get some fresh air and walk. 🚲🛴🛵

  6. Follow these sustainable influencers for more inspo:

3 Ways to Make Your Closet More Green 💚

The fashion industry is one of the most profitable industries in the world because it crosses global lines. 🌎 People use fashion to express themselves and to relate to different trends, pop culture references and friend groups so of course it produces a lot of waste!

The average person throws away 70 pounds of clothing per year which equals 13 million tons of waste just in the US! The rise of social media, influencer culture and  overconsumption has made way for new trends to come and go overnight. People’s closets are constantly growing and adding the newest piece to keep up with the times. The rise in clothing purchases has made the fashion industry a huge source of waste globally so we wanted to share our top 3 ways to make your closet more green!

♻️ Thrifting

Thrifting is something that has always been done of course, but over the last few years, it has made its way to mainstream fashion in ways that no one would have expected! As more people become aware of the wasteful practices of the fashion industry, many teens and young adults have been starting to go thrift shopping to find ways to reduce clothing purchases. 

In New York City alone, 400 million pounds of thrifted clothing were tossed out in 2018 – now imagine that worldwide! There are so many perfectly, unused and gently used clothing items to be found by going thrifting so why not make a day of it with your friends! Trends always repeat themselves so you can always find some hidden gems at the thrift shops!

👗 Renting

We all love fashion but it is not possible for most people to purchase everything under the sun because it isn’t sustainable and we don’t have endless amounts of cash to get it all! Renting has been an amazing way to get some of the best brands and empty out your closet because you return the pieces when finished with them!

At places like Rent the Runway and Nuuly, you can rent designer pieces every month for under $100 and return them when you are finished! No need to purchase tons of clothes for special events, date nights or casual weekends when you can rent something and give it a long life by passing it on to someone else! And did you know that Curtsy started off as a renting app?

🛍 Shopping Second Hand on Curtsy

Of course we couldn’t talk about a green closet without mentioning secondhand shopping! Everything has become digital and so of course shopping has too. On Curtsy, you can find some of your favorite brands – with the tags still on!!! – at such a discounted price. There are weekly sales, you can get up to 70% off on some items, and you have a whole community on Curtsy where thrifting is made easy. The experience is super user friendly and the app is one big closet share! Happy Earth Month Curtsy gals! 🌎
