London Fashion Week plays host to all the press elite and the fab girls from Look Magazine, Stylist and the Daily Express picked their favourite OFFICE styles to take them between shows.
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!
The excitement of fashion week is buzzing through all our twitter feeds and favourite blogs and whether you’re gearing up to start charging about at Somerset House from one show to another or shopping the new collections ready for the season ahead, we all need a selection of shoes to choose from that will get us through the busy days.
UGG Australia is guaranteed to give you the best of both worlds, keeping you looking top of the class in the style and comfort stakes.
Here are our recommendations of the styles to go shop from the current collection…
FOR THE LOVE OF SHEEPSKIN – Jocelin – OFFICE Exclusive
This is the season for sheepskin. The Jocelin boot with an exposed sheepskin cuff will have you right on trend in comfort. Overload a laid back outfit by piling on your jewels and suddenly casual never looked so good!
SHINE ON – Classic Sparkle
These Classic Short Sparkle boots are the perfect way to please that inner magpie! Don’t be scared to give yourself a glittery makeover, just keep it dressed down with a fringed leather jacket.
CLASSIC LOOKS – Classic Mini
The Classic Mini is a firm favourite with the fashion set on those down days when you just need to be yourself. Try yours with other long loved items, such as leopard print and a denim shirt flung around the waist. It’s the best way to wear a look that’s casual yet cool.
UGG Australia and Office will be teaming up later this week with the wildest blogger of them all, Bip Ling, to bring you a round up of all the coolest looks in London during the ultimate week in the UK fashion calendar. Don’t forget to follow @OfficeShoes on Twitter, officeshoes on Instagram and visit office.co.uk for street style updates.
Fashion’s finest were out in force during New York Fashion Week and we couldn’t help but be wooed by the shoes on show.
Victoria Beckham stayed true to her minimalist look in a pair of simplistic courts in ‘wear with everything’ black, as did Orange is the New Black star Taylor Schilling. Black courts are big news this season, look out for our full range here
Olivia Palermo channels Parisian chic with her monochrome look and keeps it neutral with nude heels. These leg lengthening heels are are a wardrobe staple and our favourites are the On Tops and Jaguars Dorsay Point.
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.
Keep your eyes peeled for all of our London Fashion Week coverage coming up this week.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
