#LFWBlogFest with UGG Australia & Bip Ling

Who better to give the bloggers of London a good wake up call to kick start LFW than blog superstar Bip Ling! Despite her New York jet lag the ever bopping Bip was on the DJ decks at 8am last Friday celebrating the start of LFW at an exclusive breakfast event hosted by Office and UGG Australia for the UK’s top bloggers.

A fashion connoisseur and frequent FROW’er, Bip loves London fashion week above any other as home to the most creative and exciting shows, where “everyone gets involved.”

For three seasons now Bip has also been a part of the UGG Australia Creative Council; featuring in seasonal campaigns and working with the brand at events such as #LFWBlogFest and Vogue Fashion Night Out. Bip has been a fan of UGG since sixth form, when she wore her classics every day, and continues to grow with the brand as the range expands into fashion and casual silhouettes.

In conversation with Victoria White of Company magazine who hosted the event trend talk, Bip was asked what makes a blogger successful. As a game changer in the blogging world, with her creativity and unique sense of style, she puts it down to personality. “When you show your personality brands become interested in working with you because you stand for something.” Take note budding bloggers…

After the event Bip nipped home for a moment to herself and a bit of “mooching in my UGG classics” before hitting the shows. Check the Office blog later this week for a round up of Bip’s fashion week experience, and choice of shoes to go with her enviable outfits!

Celebs do Fashion Week

Fashion week frenzy is well and truly upon us and we are loving the celebs gracing the streets and FROW’s. Be inspired by Cara and Poppy Delevingne who are always ones to watch during fashion month. Their smart, tomboy-esque ensembles are easy to translate and can be dressed up with heels or mannish boots. Another fashion muse to watch is Langley Fox Hemingway. We love how she’s teamed her utilitarian jumpsuit with some glam ankle boots, creating a unique look worthy of any front row.

Nine to Five

With new season comes a time for a mega wardrobe refresh for work so you arrive back to the office looking your best. Say goodbye to bare legs and shoulders and welcome thick tights, structured blazers and chunky loafers.

The glam, power vixens of the office can match their pencil skirts and cigarette pants with sharp pointed stilettos, like the On Tops or t-bar Selina and a pale chiffon blouse.

For those who like a heel that’s not too high and a bit of premium detail, then the Solstice cut out heel or Ted Baker Moniirra court are just enough to pair with a simple shift dress or tapered trousers.

For the tomboys and girls on the go, chunky flats like the Vaccine monk buckle shoe or the classic Extravaganza loafer will have you running for a morning coffee with ease. Go ’90s style and wear with a girly pinafore or sport some androgynous styling with a grandad shirt, slim tailored trousers and a tux jacket.

Monochrome

A transitional trend that seems to reappear season after season is the simple and stand-out head to toe monochrome. This ’60s inspired look has had a modern makeover with clothes and footwear staying minimal and sleek.

The bold shades of midnight black and stark white have a luxe look about them, whether they are worn solely as one colour or the two together. Footwear for AW14 has a lot of focus on texture which juxtaposes the minimal mono colour and is a subtle way of adding a premium feel to an effortless outfit.

140828_Monochrome

This uncomplicated style will always be your friend as it suits all, can be worn all year round and lets face it we all have black and white in our wardrobes. A baggy white t-shirt can be easily dressed up with a structured mini skirt and fresh perforated leather Vans Classic Slip Ons or canvas Old Skools.

With clean leather boots like the Dioon Lace Up and Chelsea from Vagabond you can experiment with texture in your clothes by wearing heavy knit, gauzy/sheer panelling and lightweight jersey.

Wear a geometric patterned or striped shift dress with black opague tights and the Villain Three Part Point for a smart work-wear look or wear the same dress with Lycra leggings and the Holla Cross Strap sandals for casual weekend days.

School Daze

With September around the corner and summer holidays coming to an end, it is the perfect excuse to get new shoes, accessories and stationary treats to show off at school.

We have taken some inspiration from classic TV shows and movies of the ’80s and ’90s that made school look like the coolest place to be.

Classics such as Saved by the Bell, Sweet Valley High and Clueless still manage to inspire fashion, with girls loving chunky t-bar flats, quilted ballerinas and the guys channelling their inner Zack Morris with varsity jackets and Nike Air Huarache’s.

140819_Back2SChool

Tomboys will love some Kickers brogues or Kennedy Lace Ups and can girl it up with some frilly or knee high socks and pleated skirt.

Showcase some Cher Horowitz style with a classic ballerina flat like the Karmen, or add a bit of height with the Gossip, both are sure to make you the most popular girl in school.

Bookworms will often be found in the library sporting some retro loafers like the Extravaganza and Volt Chain Slipper, but don’t underestimate the style of the ‘nerds’ as geek is most definitely chic.

MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) 2014

It was best foot forward for a trio of trendy-shoed stars at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Sunday’s star-studded occasion saw Taylor Swift, Beyonce and our very own Ed Sheeran in the limelight at the prestigious awards in California.

Taylor Swift

Beyonce

Beyonce stole the show as she not only won the night’s top gong, the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award, she belted up a short set of songs from her most famous videos, including XO. The ultimate diva wore a sparkly leotard, fishnet tights and stunning black ankle boots. She played a 15-minute set and received her award from husband Jay Z and their baby girl Blue Ivy.

Ed Sheeran

The 23-year-old Halifax-born Kiss Me star found a willing piggy back from director Emil Nava and beat off Eminem, John Legend and Pharrell to take the male video crown for Sing. He appeared all in black, including a shirt, jeans and classic Air Jordan 5 trainers.

Style for the Bank Holiday – Rain or Shine

With the bank holiday almost here, its time to start planning what to wear for the long weekend as quite a few of us will be packing an overnight holdall and jumping in the car to make the most out of the 3 days off.

Whether it is a city break abroad, a few days at the seaside or some countryside walking, we have selected some of our favourite ladies styles to have you covered, come rain or shine.

RAIN

When the weather gets a bit unpredictable, which lets face it happens quite a lot in the British Isles, we also need some emergency footwear in our suitcase.

If off to Wales for some country walks amongst the mountains, a pair of New Balance W373 will have you climbing trees and picking raspberries all day.

For the festival goers who are prepping for Reading, Leeds or SW4, a bright pair of Joules wellies are a must for some muddy trekking to the main stage.

City shopping and touristy days out call for a pair of timeless leather Converse All Stars or a chunky ankle boot like the Madison as both look pretty smart, are easy to wear with anything and will help keep your feet dry if there is an unexpected drizzle.

SHINE

For sunny days sat on Brighton pier with a 99 ice cream, a classic pair of Vans Authentic are great as they come in so many summery colours and help you walk across the pebbly beach without hurting your feet and stay comfy and cool whilst walking through the lanes shopping till you drop.

For those of us who are lucky enough to jet set abroad to the likes of Rome, Paris or Amsterdam, some sandals and some trainers are a must to pop in your hand luggage. Lightweight and comfortable, the new Air Max Thea will have you exploring the city all day and some simple sandals like the Holla  or Hallie are great for lunches at the Louvre or dinner overlooking the Colosseum.
