How to Wear Knee Boots

The cold days have arrived just when we had got used to having lovely warm weather well into Autumn. However with cold weather comes lots of layers, cosy knits and an excuse to wear all types of boot.

We will always love the transitional ankle boot but this winter we are taking things to new heights with knee high and over the knee boots. Taking influence from the 70s, this stand out style come in many forms, such as the equestrian inspired riding boot, the buckled biker and the sumptuous suede thigh high.

This season is all about keeping warm and premium leather, soft suede and shearling lining will help keep those legs a little cosier this winter.

Make a style statement with the slouchy suede Nova thigh boot, great with high hemlines, thick jumper dresses and super skinny jeans.

Pair a classic riding boot like the cuffed All Out or polished Agent 2 with thick leggings and an oversized jumper. This smart boot never goes out of fashion and will take you through until next spring.

Channel a bit of Dolly Parton at Glasto and go for the Nevada fringe boot which looks cute worn with a prom style skirt and boyish sweatshirt.

Toughen up your everyday look with a biker like the Nifty buckle boot, wear with black skinnies, crisp, white shirt and this seasons must have blanket coat.

Paris Fashion Week Roundup

The final week of high fashion is over and Paris proved itself to be a an epic finale.

We saw protesting women at Chanel, with cheeky model Cara Delevingne at the forefront leading a Pret-a-Porter army, including Giselle, Charlotte Free and Kendall Jenner.

Since Nicolas Ghesquière moved to Louis Vuitton, the clothes have gone slightly more youthful and his latest collection had models draped in schoolgirl-like silhouettes, dripping in sequins.

Never far from the front row, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were out in full force complete with their new addition North, who matched her parents outfits of course.

Street style remained very Parisian with a lot of black, wide leg trousers, oversized shirts and circle mid skirts and the bloggers were out in their hundreds to capture moments from the closing fashion week.

Key trends to look out for in SS15 are cosmetic box hues of peach, mint and pink often in soft suede’s and exquisite sheers.

Pure, neutral tones and fluid silhouettes that create effortlessly feminine shapes.

70s styling is here to stay with plenty of flares and bold striped detailing.

Office x Breast Cancer Care

OFFICE has supported Breast Cancer Care for the past four years and last October we raised a record breaking £69,000 to support this worthy charity.

We managed to raise this money in many ways, with customer donations in store, staff fancy dress days and a Bake Off in OFFICE HQ. But the most successful was our special edition Breast Cancer Awareness Month shoe and this year we have 3 styles! These three party inspired shoes have come just in time for the party season and there is a style to suit all with a classic flat, strappy mid and pointy stiletto.

The Cecilia Toe Cap Ballerina features a sparkling pink glitter upper with Parisian style quilting and a patent black toe cap, perfect with a pretty black prom dress.

The Je’ Taime mid heel has a fuchsia pink suede, strappy upper with an ankle buckle fastening. This minimal heel is easy to wear with anything from dresses to smart cigarette trousers.

The On Tops stiletto is one of our all time favourites at OFFICE and this special edition version features a pale pink metallic upper with patent stiletto heel and is best paired with a fitted dress or dressed down with ripped boyfriend jeans.

OFFICE-for-Breast-Cancer-Care

With one in eight women now diagnosed with breast cancer, many of OFFICE’s customers and employees have had a loved one face this brutal disease. That’s why Breast Cancer Care – the only UK-wide specialist support charity – is so important to us. So, this October, OFFICE is going to start fundraising once again! The 3 special edition shoes will be on sale online and in-store and  the staff will be doing their bit too! The money raised will ensure Breast Cancer Care can continue to provide its emotional support network, specialist nurses and local services for free.

Laura says: “I was diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2012 at 22 years old. I had to have a double mastectomy and reconstruction, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. I used Breast Cancer Care’s website which was really helpful, it was a place to find information I could trust. Thank you OFFICE for promising to raise even more money for this amazing charity, with your help they can support other women just like me.

The Cecilia and On Tops will be available to buy from the 1st October and the Je’Taime is coming soon! 50% of the shoe sales + VAT go to Breast Cancer Care.

You can also show your support by donating in store or buying this year’s Breast Cancer Care pin which is only available online.

Monk shoes – How to Wear

Over the years. men’s formal footwear choices have stayed simple and slick, with most opting for a classic brogue, a chisel toe lace up or a slightly daring winkle-picker.

Recently guys are getting a little more daring with their choices and the favourite silhouette of the moment seems to be the monk shoe. This Wall St style became popular in the 80s with the Jordan Belforts of the world and with 80s formal fashion coming back around, its only right that the footwear should follow.

 

140922_monk

Premium monk shoes like the Poste Apparel and Giovanni are best paired with a 3 piece suit for the office or worn with smart trousers and a shirt/jumper for evenings out.

Slightly more casual styles like the Ask the Missus Hirst and Anarchy look good with dark wash denim, loose fitted tweed and thin knitwear.

Vogue Fashion Night Out

Last night the shopping mecca of Oxford Street hosted the annual Vogue Fashion Night Out and provided a flurry of events all along the famous London street.

To help celebrate the night the OFFICE Oxford Street East store offered customization on every pair of our best selling On Tops heel. Customers who bought a pair could take them to the customization booth where artist Adam Claridge would draw on his old school tattoo-like designs for a completely unique heel. Adam’s designs have featured in Vogue and celebrities and models are loving this young designer’s individual artistic style.

140924_vogue

There was also a Twitter competition where followers were given clues to find one of the customized heels on Oxford Street. When found the lucky person would win a £50 voucher and it didn’t take someone long to find it sneakily hidden in the shop.

As people came in to search for the shoe, we managed to capture some great street style from the trend setters who were out enjoying the fashion activities.

Milan Fashion Week Roundup

This last week saw Milan host its SS15 fashion week and it definitely gave us some exciting surprises along the way.

Model sensation and TV star, Kendall Jenner pounded the runaway for Dolce and Gabbana with a crowd of doppelgänger models beside her . The Italian designers took on Spain with a flamenco inspired collection in bold red, white and black. With strong religious undertones and bull fighter influences, this dominating collection had a powerful impact with Kendall at the helm.

140922_blog

We saw Native American prints at Etro, boy cuts at Jil Sander and festival fever at Emilio Pucci, but the spotlight was most definitely taken over by Jeremy Scott’s Moschino collection.

Every little girl’s dream was realised as life sized Barbie dolls walked town the catwalk, wearing the outfits we dressed our dolls in growing up. Some of the favourites had to be fitness, beach and tourist Barbie and despite being a little tacky and over the top, we couldn’t help but wish we could dress up like that.

Milan Fashion Week tends to fully reflect the Italian designers that put it on the fashion map and Versace, Dolce & Gabbana and Prada will always remain at the forefront. But now with rebellious Moschino adding a sprinkle of Barbie pink in amongst some classic style, it has got us super excited for next season.

Vans introduce Chlöe Howl

Let’s be honest, Vans have always been pretty on-point at providing the perfect classic sneaker, but they’re also pretty good at finding the coolest emerging bands and artists. And with the opening of the ginormous House of Vans this summer, there’ll be plenty more of that coming from the original skate brand turned culture magnet. With a promise to fuel creative expression through music, art, film, fashion and, of course, skating, the free space in the original tunnels of Waterloo station is set to be a mecca for many. 

140923_chloehwell

Chloe reckons her friends will be at the front row in the mosh pit, gig after gig, “I didn’t know what to expect coming in here, but it’s such an amazing space –and it’s good to see all these things in one place, interacting in a way you don’t normally see. Where else can you skate, view art, watch a gig, followed by a movie, and grab a burger all in the same place? “I’m such a Vans girl, my style is ‘literally-just-got-out-of-bed’ – I look as if I’ve just grabbed my clothes off the bedroom floor! Team that with a pair of scruffed-up or, for smarter occasions, box-fresh Vans, and that’s me done. “Once I finish my album, in the autumn, I’m going to come knocking on the House’s door. This is exactly where I want to play my shows – the crowds will be so cool.”

Heavy Metal

Metallics are here to stay, carrying over from summer but taking on a darker, inky sheen for the colder months.

This dissonance trend adds a subtle metallic detail to any outfit and the iridescent effect has a textural and dimensional quality that gives the shoes a luxe effect.

The pointed Strobe heel and Kicker Slip On look as if they have been dipped in a petrol pool with greens and purples shining through the hi-shine black. Pair with some denim, loose white tee and structured jacket.

 

140915_HeavyMetalBlog

For a warmer tone, go for the Georgia Court or Vectra Brogue in deep bronze, great matched with tailored trousers or girly dresses and thick tights this Autumn.

Make sure you have a touch of dark metallic into your wardrobe this season to easily glam up the simplest of outfits.
