What’s your heel type?

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.

Eskiva

Puma’s brand ambassador, global superstar Rihanna has hand picked her favourite Puma styles. Following the success of the Fenty Creepers, Rih Rih and Puma have released the Eskiva hi. This sleek and sporty silhouette is opposite, aesthetically, to her previous drop.

An update of the classic boxing shoe the Puma Gong, the Eskiva Hi is a high cut trainer that combines retro sporting aesthetic with contemporary fashion. It features a leather upper, nubuck overlays, lace up front, perforated tongue, heel tab and gold Puma branding. The music and fashion mogul styles hers with Puma tracksuit bottoms and a sporty crop top.

An alternative to the boot cut profile is the Eskiva mid, similar in design but with a perforated back panel and zip for easy access.

Cool Kids | Celeb Baby Style

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

The celebrities better watch their style icon crowns as there are some new kids on the block…literally.

Some of our favourite celebrities have their very own fashionable mini me’s, with their kids rocking the latest trends and even pulling it off a little better than their parents.

We picked out some of our favourite little style icons of 2014 rocking some of our favourite brands.

With two fashion conscious parents, North West is often seen looking like a miniature version of Kim and Kanye, draped in designer labels and sitting front row at Paris Fashion Week. Check out her double denim look, paired with her little Timberland 6″ Classic boots, is it ok to be jealous of a 1 year year old’s outfit?

Gwen Stefani’s eldest Kingston Rossdale has been a bit of a fashion rebel since birth, rocking a bleached mohawk and ripped jeans since he was still in nappies. With his mum having her own label L.A.M.B, he has the pick of a rock ‘n’ roll wardrobe, often seen in oversized basketball tees, tartan and some Nike’s.

With model Kimberley Stewart as a mum and movie star Benicio del Toro as a dad, little Delilah is certainly a cutie and she looks adorable in her navy pea coat and cosy UGG boots.

There is nothing we love more than a picture of David Beckham holding his precious daughter Harper *cue girlish squeals* and she looks super cute next to her gorge dad with a girly pink dress and Dr Martens Brooklee lace boots. With her mum being Victoria Beckham it is no surprise she is already a fashionista and like North West has already been a FROW’er before the age of 2.

We just cant get enough of these mini style icons in OFFICE HQ

Too cute!!

Timberland – As Seen On Celebs

Monday, October 13th, 2014

Timberland is fast becoming the brand of the moment and even celebs are getting in on the action this winter.

The Premium 6 inch worker boot has always been a Timberland trademark style and this season we cant seem to get enough of it with all the new colourways and OFFICE exclusives.

This 90’s staple first became a fashion statement when the likes of All Saints and Aaliyah rocked them with baggy parachute pants and tight crop tops but now the cool kids of 2014 are making them their new fave footwear.

Mega stars like Rihanna, Jay-Z and the Kardashians are frequently seen in the cool yet practical Timberland boot and even getting the kids in on the action with little Blue Ivy and North West wearing mini versions.

141010_Timberland

Wear a black mono pair like supermodel of the moment Cara Delevingne and pair with ripped skinny jeans, a warm jumper and leather biker jacket, for an easy to wear, off-duty look.

Glam it up like Khloe Kardashian with the OFFICE exclusive nutmeg gold pair and wear with some smart jeans and shirt for a dressed down dinner date.

Rihanna is the perfect Timberland girl as the style perfectly matches her urban wardrobe, dress like her with a pair of premium Authentic Shearling boots to keep cosy this winter.

Guys can get a bit of hip-hop inspiration from Jigga and Yeezy who like to wear their classic Premium 6 inch boot with baggy jeans and an oversized sweatshirt. As the boots are quite chunky, guys should stay away from pairing them with their old faithful skinny jeans and try a classic pair of 501’s.

Celebs do Fashion Week

Monday, September 8th, 2014

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.

Chanel does neoprene

Chanel’s designer Karl Lagerfield experimented with neoprene -and featured a pregnant model wearing a Baroque-inspired wedding gown made out of the wetsuit material. He also featured neoprene ballroom gowns teamed with flat sandals that wrapped around the models’ ankles.

Spaced out

Inspired  by both astronauts and 18th-century styles, designer Raf Simons Dior’s collection featured full-skirted gowns with T-back tops and long coats and detailed flapper dressers with resin fringing.

Ladylike

The Giorgio Armani collection showed off softly tailored suits – so smart that even the shorts wouldn’t look out of place in the office. His models also looked beautifully feminine in paillette-covered tulle gowns.

Celeb spotting

The stars were out to play in Paris, from Kim Kardashian to Kristen Stewart, every fashionista came out to see what’s hot on the catwalk.

The Kardashian’s sister Kendall Jenner worked the catwalk for Chanel, and also looked hot off the runway. Arriving at the Balmain show with a Roman inspired embossed leather dress featuring pleated flaps, Kendall finished the look with black ankle stiletto boots.

Jennifer Lawrence looked stunning in a sophisticated gown at Dior’s exclusive after-show dinner. Jennifer wore a figure-hugging Dior Bouclé dress with metallic embroidery, paired with silver Dior pumps.

Meanwhile, Emma Watson looked classy in a shaped black trouser suit with nipped in waist and open-toed sandals.

And Kristen Stewart showed off her new short hairstyle, with edgy dyed-red tips. She rocked her new edgy look with a tight white crop top and high- waisted crocheted white trousers – teamed with white Christian Louboutin heels.

But the surprise of the week had to go to Hollywood A-listers Charlize Theron and Sean Penn, who walked into the Christian Dior show holding hands and sat on the front row together. Charlize, who is a brand ambassador for Dior, shone in a gold-fringed cocktail dress and high-heeled strappy nude sandals, while her new man looked cool in a black Dior suit and open-necked white shirt.

Style Icons – Who Inspires The OFFICE HQ Men

Friday, July 4th, 2014

It has become apparent  in recent years that men’s style is slightly overtaking the females with you lovely gentleman really pulling it out the bag with on point head to toe looks. We know from chatting to the men of OFFICE HQ that they all have a bit of a man style crush so we asked a few to nominate the famous faces that inspire their everyday wardrobe.

The Artist: – Tinie Tempah is the urban cool kid who can rock a pair of classic trainers and a snap-back but also embraces his inner geek when dressing up for formal events. His style is unique and he isn’t afraid to take a few surprising risks with colour and silhouette, he loves a bit of print and is our modern Fresh Prince.

Mr Timeless: -The one and only Mr David Beckham, it is fair to say that he has had a few bizarre fashion choices over the years but I mean who hasn’t, the late 90’s and early Noughties were a bit of a fashion blur for us all. Long gone are the curtains and sarongs and like a fine wine Becks has just got even better with age. His style is effortless and whether he is dressed up or down his wardrobe never disappoints, a fan of a 3 piece suit and some dark wash jeans with boots.

blog-men_icons

The Rebel: – The icon and movie star taken before his time is the original rebel James Dean. He only ever made 4 films and died aged 24 which is surprising considering the impact he had as both an actor and a style icon. His classic style was a white t-shirt, jeans and Converse with a black leather jacket thrown on for good measure, this look is timeless and guys will always look great in the simple look.

Mr Show Off: – Self titled Lord Disick, Scott was swallowed up in the Kardashian machine and always see as a bit of a villain yet guys cant help but love this arrogant Patrick Bateman lookalike. He is definitely the sharpest dressed in the list and since the release of The Wolf of Wall Street, the slick back 80’s style is slowly gracing the pavements of St Paul’s and Bishopsgate. With flashes of pastel here and there, this polished smart shoe wearing guy is not afraid of sporting some pink and tying a jumper round his neck. Who cares if he doesn’t own a yacht, fake it until you make it. All hail Lord Disick!

Heartbreak Kid:- The man that since Drive even men crush on as much as women, the ultimate heart breaker Ryan Gosling. His mysterious ‘I don’t care’ attitude just makes him cooler and his appearance in Drive made men suddenly crave a satin baseball jacket with an embroidered Scorpion on the back, who knew! This guy often dresses down day to day in loose t-shirts, battered jeans and woven loafers but he knows how to pull it out the bag for an occasion and makes sure he is polished head to toe.

The Chameleon: – He is talented, he is beyond cool and he is one of ours, Idris Elba or Luther as we have come to know and love. He is mostly spotted at awards ceremony’s in a crisp Tom Ford suit but Idris also oozes urban appeal when dressed down, plus he is a DJ and his name is Big Driis, legend!

Trendsetter: – We have watched Alex Turner’s style transform from grungy teenager to Dapper Dan in the last few years. His new found retro rockabilly edge with his slimmed downed 60’s suits and stacked brogues are a brave choice for most but this shy musician is steps ahead already as this alternative style will dominate AW14.

Best dressed at Glastonbury – who survived the mud! #OFFICEFestStyle

Monday, June 30th, 2014

It rocked, it rained and everyone had a riot! Glastonbury Festival is over for another year – the festival goers are scrubbing their hair in a much-needed hot shower, and the big clean-up operation is under-way at Worthy Farm. But which celebs survived the mud and who looked effortlessly stylish amid the puddles and thunderstorms?

Here’s our roundup of who looked hot in the rain:

Glastonbury Festival 2014 - Day 3

Dolly Parton thrilled the crowd when she headlined the Pyramid Stage on Sunday night. With her trademark backcombed blonde mane untouched by the drizzle, Dolly sparkled in rhinestone-clad white trouser suit complete with a matching blinged-up guitar. Dolly’s opening rendition of Burnin’ Love was enough to get the sun out as the crowd sang her hits back at her. If you fancy the cowgirl look for your own 9 to 5, check out our Cristie ankle boot.

Glastonbury Festival 2014 - Day 3

Wellies were the Glasto must-have and TV presenter Alexa Chung pulled off the look with Hunter wellies combined with a vest and denim hotpants.

Glastonbury Festival 2014 - Day 3

Singer Eliza Doolittle opted for a bright patterned summer dress teamed with matching red Converse sneakers Our range of Converse come in almost every colour and go with everything. Team them with a pretty dress like Eliza or dress down with skinny jeans or shorts.

Glastonbury rumours

Friday, March 14th, 2014

 

It’s just a matter of months before we’ll be pulling on our wellies and denim shorts and heading to Worthy Farm for a few days of festival fun at Glastonbury. As ever, rumours are swirling about just who will be taking to the famous Pyramid Stage, so we’ve been keeping our ears to the ground and listening out for any hints from our favourite artists.

We take a closer look at who’s confirmed so far and who might be dropping by…

 

Confirmed

We know that all of the following will be showing their faces in Somerset at some point.

Arcade Fire

Warpaint

Blondie

Dolly Parton

Lily Allen

Suzanne Vega

Disclosure

Arcade Fire are the only headlining act to confirm their appearance so far and will take to the stage on Friday night. As well as being musical geniuses, they’ve also tried their hand at weather forecasting, with the band’s Win Butler promising “gorgeous” weather or people’s money back!

 The Graham Norton Show - London

The rumours

Pretty much every artist’s name has been linked with Glasto at one point or another, first Fleetwood Mac were tipped to headline then Prince and now its seems Kasabian are the favourites to take to the stage to coincide with the release of their fifth studio album.

 Graham Norton Show - London

Pop princess Kylie is also being touted to make a possible appearance to promote her new album, which is out this month. The Aussie singer previously had to pull out of a starring spot in 2005 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

 

The Klaxons have dropped some of the strongest hints yet that they’ll be taking to the Glasto stage, after dodging questions about the festival. “There are gigs planned, we can’t tell you when, yet,” they revealed during an interview with Zane Lowe earlier this year. Intriguing!

 

The rumour mill also suggests Rihanna, Kanye West, The Eagles and OutKast may show up.
