What’s your heel type?

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

Statement heels are a major trend this AW, and not just for stilettos, all the designers from Prada to Acne are playing with new, sculpted silhouettes. We’ve selected our favourite styles below.

Flared 

This year the seventies trend dominated the runway, every major designer and high street brand were influenced by the quirky decade. With no signs of it disappearing our collection of retro inspired flared heels is ever growing, for the party season our Token Flare Heels go perfect with a culotte jumpsuit or for a feminine approach try the mid heeled Quazer in black patent.

Perspex

Christian Dior’s perspex heeled, spray on boots had everyone from Kylie Jenner to Rihanna drooling this year. For 60’s styling and dip dye effect heel try our Illinois Cylindrical Perspex boots, wear with a leather mini and simple turtle neck.

Cone

For a sleek, refined silhouette opt for a cone heel. Our strappy Tainted Cone Heels in black leather are versatile and comfortable, wear with a fitted dress or for an edgier look add fishnet tights. For the ultimate 80’s throw back wear our suede Invoke Cone heel Boots  with tight jeans and a biker jacket.

Cylindrical

Givenchy and Isabel Marant  famously covet the cylindrical heel, a directional style that looks good in various heights and widths. Our Ida Cylindrical Boots come in 70’s tan, glamorous snake and classic black, making the transition from day to night that bit easier. For a more everyday boot, Ingot Back Zip is a mid heeled, chelsea style that looks best with black tights or frayed jeans.

Studio 54 – Party Shoes

Monday, November 9th, 2015

With party season ahead of us, its only right that get ourselves ready for the glitz and glamour of our favourite time of year.

Time to bring out the sparkles, glitter and lame and go OTT this season with a touch of Studio 54 glamour. The Seventies have been a huge fashion influence this year and this continues into partywear with us taking our outfit inspiration from the likes of Angelica Huston, Grace Jones and Bianca Jagger.

shoes

Back then the jumpsuits were head to toe glitter and the heels were high, but it is easy to achieve this look with a stand out pair of shoes and plenty of sparkle.

Platforms were of course the shoe of the ’70s and our Twin Platform Heels are a must have. With a vintage style moc croc leather upper, these heels look fab with a gold sequin shift dress. If you aren’t too keen on the skyscraper heels then the mirrored silver Lima Flatforms also look super cute with a classic LBD.

Suede knee boots and ankle boots were also a style statement of the era and this season we are wearing them morning, noon and night. Wear our Nomad Over the Knee Boots or Immortal Metal Heel Boots with a bell sleeve playsuit.

If points are your thing, you are spoilt for choice with our fab collection. Wow the crowds with a pair glitter On Tops, Trouble High Back Courts or our Topical T-Bar Point.

We are more than ready for the party and we hope to see you there!

Hot for Halloween

Monday, October 19th, 2015

Its that time of year again when the pumpkins come out and the perfect excuse to dress up and get creative. With Halloween parties lining up its time to get your outfit sorted and more importantly what shoes you are going to wear!

You are usually pretty safe with black or red shoes for the occasion but if you would rather go for a more subtle nod to the undead rather than a head to toe number then we have the perfect Halloween style shoes to get you looking gothic and glam.

Halloween

halloween2

Wednesday Addams is a pretty fail-safe look and lets face it, it never gets old and looks so fabulously chic! Pop on a black pinafore with a white blouse underneath, pigtails, knee high black socks and either some Dr Martens 3 Eye Lace Ups or the dolly style Dioon Buckle Shoes. These shoes will also look great with a broken doll look or zombie schoolgirl, plus we love wearing these all year round!

Vampires as we know are always fierce (R.Pattz mmmmm) so our Victoriana inspired Intoxicate boots will look super sexy with a vampy look and don’t forget the blood red lips!

The over the knee boot is the shoe of the season and you need a pair in your wardrobe so you might as well use them to your advantage for All Hallows Eve. Perfect for a superhero or Catwoman, this stand out Eve boots will make a statement even without the costume!

For the ladies who would rather take a slightly subtler approach, then the new Trouble High Back Point Court or Tipple Cut Out Heel are great gothic inspired heels that wont bite.

We cant wait to see all your Halloween looks, make sure to tag @officeshoes so we can see what you are wearing.

Trend Alert: The Bandal

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

Sometimes referred to as the shoe boot, the “bandal” is every girls must have heel this season.

Its been rocked by the likes of Alexa Chung, Selena Gomez and Olivia Palermo and now we cannot stop wearing them in OFFICE HQ. This flattering silhouette, can easily be dressed up or down and oozes sexy siren.

Ankle boots are the ultimate transitional style and every girl loves a heel, so this little hybrids are the perfect mix of the two and are a great shoe for Autumn as they are exposed just enough without making you cold.

the bandal

The bandal has been worn by the Kardashian clan many times, often paired with skin tight jersey. However if you aren’t brave to bear all, then wear yours with skinny jeans and and a big shirt or some tapered trousers and a classic leather jacket.

They also make a great going out shoe because your are less likely to stumble out of them and they look gorgeous with a cute skirt, crop top and some statement earrings.

We are all over this style and we can’t wait to see how you rock yours this season.

What’s inspiring you this season?

I have an extremely short attention span so my inspirations change daily, but right now; Dennis Wilson circa ‘Pacific Ocean Blue’, the idea of being self sustaining, every single one of my friends, anyone living their dream, and Robert M.Pirsig.

 

Fave song at the moment?

What a cruel question! Can I have two? Dinosaur Jr ‘Freak Scene’ and Creedence Clearwater Revival ‘Bad Moon rising.’

 

What shoes/trends are going to be big in AW15?

The 70’s goes 90’s – A hybrid of two of the biggest fashion resurgences of the last few years, and really easy way to incorporate two trends in one look.

Goth is also going sexy this winter, think premium and feature materials, lacing, and super stretch ankle boots.

The 70’s Platform Heel

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

A trend that has carried over from Summer is the return of the sassy Seventies.

This summer we saw lots of boho blouses, peasant dresses, tassels and ghille lace up gladiator sandals, but this Autumn the trend has taken on more of a Studio 54 vibe.

Smarter and sophisticated this 70’s update will see a huge focus on possibly the most famous footwear from the era, the platform heel. Whether its a boot, a sandal or a wedge, the platform heel is a definite must for the Autumn season.

70s trend

shoe2

We have selected some of favourite new in styles to get you ready for the injection of Autumnal colours into your wardrobe and to keep you towering above everyone.

Platforms are generally the more comfortable heel shape as even though you are pretty high up, your foot is slightly more balanced with the addition of a platform sole. If you really want to elongate your legs and stand tall then the Twin platform heel in patent moc croc leather and the Taller Super Wedge in burnt orange suede are your go to styles. Wear with straight leg ankle grazer jeans and a tight high neck tee or jumper.

Keep things a little lower with the Vagabond Tyra ankle boot or Question Loafer and pair with a cute pinafore dress and long sleeved stripy tee.

If you want a true nod to the glam 70’s, the high leg Indigo ankle boot and Tilly Platform sandal in leopard pony will look fab with some ankle flared blue jeans and a tied up flannel shirt.

Get Ready for Glasto

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

The backpack is full, the tent is packed and we are almost ready for a week of fantastic music and culture at the legendary Glastonbury Festival in Somerset.

With headline acts Kanye West, Florence & the Machine and The Who, the festival is set to be an explosive one and we cannot wait to see what everyone is wearing.

Come rain or shine the crowds pull of some weird and wonderful outfits and are usually armed with a pair of trusty Hunter boots or classic Converse to keep them dancing from dusk til dawn.

Here is some of the looks and styles we will be rocking at Glasto this year.
