Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

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.

CREATIVE COUNCIL S/S14

Friday, March 14th, 2014

 

Those in the know say that style comes from realising what is classic to you and your look, reinterpreting it each season to keep it fresh. UGG Australia are putting modern classics at the centre of things this season with the help from a collective of impressive individuals with innate sense of style and individuality, also known as the Creative Council. Here we introduce you to the different members of the Council and what makes them stand out amongst the crowd.

You may have already spotted her in the pages of Vogue, ELLE or Grazia showing her love for the Classics, the face of the S/S14 campaign is girl of the moment, Suki Waterhouse. With her arrestingly beautiful looks and cool factor, we can’t get enough of her! Alongside Suki is the most colourful girl on the catwalks – Chloe Norgaard, known in the industry for her rebel looks and carefree nature. These two darlings of the fashion world also happened to be top of the league in social media during London Fashion Week!

OFFICE_783x400-1

Introducing you to the UGG for Men range, emerging menswear designer winners Agi & Sam elected the footwear brand as the ideal partner for their most recent London Collections: Men show.

Equally creative, with added heaps of energy, is blogger & DJ, Bip Ling. For her whirlwind lifestyle she dons the Darling boot, a block heel style in soft suede for the girls out there who are equally unstoppable but like to keep their look slick.

OFFICE_783x400

Helping us to navigate the eternal question – how to dress for a British summer, stylist and fashion insider Natalie Hartley rounds up her choice pieces in the UGG SS14 collection to show us her classic looks.  So make like Natalie and the rest of Creative Council; put together a look for yourself this season that celebrates what classic means to you – whether it’s a crisp white shirt with a Classic Mini, or a rolled up jean with the block heel Darling boot. You might just be looking at the definition of a modern classic!

Hair today…

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

 

Spring is the perfect time for a fresh start, and what better way to mark the new season than with new hair? Whether you fancy chopping, styling or colouring your locks, here’s our guide to the hottest hair styles of the season.

 

Cartoon hair

Ok, cartoon hair may not be the most flattering name for a ‘do but it perfectly describes the mega shiny, blunt and often crazily coloured styles sported by the likes of Katy Perry and Lily Allen. This is a fun but high maintenance look, you’ll need to keep your locks glossy and have your barnet cut regularly to keep it in tip top condition. Remember, cartoon characters never have a hair out of place. Team with dramatic eyeliner and ruby red lips for a look that will ensure you stand out from the crowd.

Hair icon – Lily Allen at the Brits. We love that yellow streak.

Pixie crops

Charlize Theron, Jennifer Hudson, Jaimie Alexander, it seems like all of Hollywood are chopping off their locks and embracing the pixie crop. The sleek, shorn look is ideal for summer; no battling with straighteners or curlers, and you can still play around with it. Jennifer Lawrence’s hair rarely looks the same for two red carpet appearances in a row. We’ve seen it slicked to one side, rough and ready and in full on quiff mode.

Hair icon – Jennifer Lawrence, who else?

Tousled and textured

The idea behind tousled hair is that you look as though you’ve just jumped out of bed and run your fingers through it, but sadly for most of us mere mortals, it’s actually a fairly lengthy process involving texture creams, extensive blow-drying, and a good blast of hairspray.

Hair icon – Rosie Huntington-Whitely, please tell us she doesn’t get out of bed looking like that?

 rosie

Bold shades

Dip dye is out and single shades are in, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick to you usual blonde/brunette/red locks. In fact, the bolder and brighter the colour, the better, if recent catwalk shows are anything to go by, with Chanel sending models down the runway with brightly-coloured extensions. If you want something a bit more subtle, the pink rinse on Marc Jacobs’ models made us look twice

Hair icon – Kelly Osboure. Ms O has been rocking purple locks whether they are in style or not.

Do you dare wear…?

Monday, March 10th, 2014

 

Every season there are some trends which we um and ah over, unable to decide whether we are brave enough to try and pull off fashion forward or if we should leave them well alone. However, this spring we’ve decided to find ways to make some of the toughest trends to carry off work for us. Take a look at our guide to what we’ll be daring to wear in the coming months and how we’ll be styling our outfits…

 

Crop tops

 

Crop tops have divided us here at HQ in recent months and it looks like they will continue to do so throughout spring and summer, with a number of designers featuring them as part of their most recent collections. However, even those of us most nervous about flashing our tummies concede that there are a number of ways to embrace the trend even if you don’t have abs like Rihanna. Our favourite combo is a cropped tee and a high-waisted midi skirt in matching prints which shows off just a hint of midriff. When the weather gets warmer we’ll also be teaming our crop tops with some high-waisted shorts a la Taylor Swift.

 

VERY wide trousers

 

We’re so used to skinnies now that we don’t really know how we feel about the idea of letting our legs breathe in the frankly huge trousers which were seen on the runways at Mulberry, Paul Smith and Michael Kors. The good news is you don’t need to be a long-limbed supermodel to carry off wide trousers like we initially suspected. But you do need to style them carefully. Think chunky heels and a slim-line top, perhaps with a statement necklace to add some balance to the look.

 Paris Fashion Gaultier

Double denim

 

Double denim is one of those looks that we were told to avoid for years, like socks and sandals, but then all of a sudden the rulebook is thrown out and the very fashion faux pas we were studiously avoiding is a top trend. Balmain and Louis Vuitton were the drivers behind double denim this spring/summer and who are we to argue with such fashion heavyweights? You do need to think about which pieces to put together though if you want to avoid looking like Britney and Justin circa 2001. Pair varying shades to stop the look being too matchy matchy and opt for embellished denim with frayed or ripped details to be bang on trend.

 

Slip dresses

 

Gwyneth Paltrow can wear them. Kate Moss can wear them. But can us mere mortals ever look good in a slinky, shapeless slip dress? The answer from the fashion pack appears to be a resounding yes, if you style it correctly. Layers are the friend of the slip dress and a checked shirt or denim jacket thrown over your spaghetti straps will result in the perfect dressed down look while ensuring you are not flashing too much flesh. Similarly a belted cardigan will help define your shape and provide the perfect contrast to the slinky material.

Golden Globes fashion

Monday, January 13th, 2014

Awards season is finally here! The Golden Globes on Sunday kicked off what will be several months of red carpets, trophies and teary acceptance speeches, and the stars of the silver and small screen certainly dressed to impress. Here’s a closer look at our favourite outfits from the ceremony.

 

Jennifer Lawrence

Another year, another Golden Globe (this time for Best Supporting Actress) and another stunning Dior gown for Jennifer Lawrence. The gorgeous monochrome dress was elegantly simple but certainly stood out on the red carpet thanks to Jen’s pixie cut, vampish red lips and statement jewellery.

Taylor Swift

There were a lot of bold shades being modelled at the Golden Globes and country crooner Taylor Swift was among the most noticeable attendees in a Carolina Herrera cherry red dress with a heart-shaped neckline and long train.

 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals - Los Angeles

Taylor may be better known for her singing than her acting, but with her hair in an elegant up-do and her pout painted perfectly red, she looked every inch the screen siren.

 

Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde, who is six months pregnant, looked the opposite of mumsy in a dark green slinky sequinned number by Gucci.

 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals - Los Angeles

The dress hugged her neat baby bump perfectly and she looked sleek and elegant. It was difficult to tell whether she was glowing because of the pregnancy or the sparkling Forevermark diamond earrings and coordinating bracelet she was rocking.

 

Michelle Dockery

Michelle Dockery looked every inch as elegant as her on-screen counterpart Lady Mary in a gold, embellished Oscar de la Renta gown.

 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals - Los Angeles

The actress let the sparkling dress do the talking and kept her accessories simple with just some statement earrings and a cocktail ring.

 

Matthew McConaughey

Matthew McConaughey was a surprise winner on the night, scooping the Best Actor gong for his role in Dallas Buyer’s Club, but he certainly looked the part as he took to the stage in his green velvet blazer with black satin trim.

Red carpet round-up

Friday, January 10th, 2014

 

We may only be a couple of weeks into the new year, but a host of celebs have already shown off some stunning gowns on the red carpet.

We take a closer look at some of our favourites.

Margot Robbie

Wolf Of Wall Street star Margot Robbie opted for a modest red silk dress at the film’s London première this week. The scarlet two-tone number by Oscar de la Renta featured a high neckline and long sleeves, but a knee-high slit at the front and the nipped-in waist kept it on the right side of frumpy. We also loved her gold stilettos.

Naya Rivera

Naya Rivera modelled an elegantly simple gown at the 40th Annual People’s Choice Awards in LA. The beige, white and black Michael Kors dress combined a number of trends including body-con, colour blocking and a dipped hem. The look was completed with a stylish gold necklace, some strappy Stuart Weitzman shoes and new honey-coloured locks.

Paloma Faith

Paloma Faith was all about vintage inspired pastels at the Burberry Prorsum Menswear show in London. Her lace Burberry shirt dress was in one of this season’s hottest colours; pink, while her mint green coat and metallic accessories complemented it perfectly.

Paloma also rocked a new hair-do, ditching her trademark red locks in favour of a cool blonde look.

Allison Williams

Girls star Allison Williams has expressed an interest in following in Jennifer Aniston’s footsteps as America’s sweetheart and we think she is well on her way after wowing in a series of gorgeous dresses recently.

One of our favourites is this white satin cocktail dress with crystal and sequin embellishment which she wore for the Girls series three launch. The soft pleat skirt and classic boat neck were timelessly elegant but the stunning detailing ensured it was right on trend.

Celebs in OFFICE: 2013

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

 

When flicking through our favourite monthly and weekly mags or even noticing the odd tweet, there’s really nothing better than spotting a celeb in a pair of our shoes. There have been so many ‘celeb in OFFICE’ sightings over 2013 that we thought we should pick out a couple of our favourites.

First up we have Fearne Cotton. She had a great year, co hosting Children in Need, having a baby and of course being sighted in some fabulous strappy high heels, otherwise known as Reckless.

CELEBS LEAVE TV SERIES CELEBRITY JUICE AFTER FILMING

Second on our list is Mollie King. As one of the Saturday’s she has glitzy party after another. For one in particular she rolled up in our Reim high heel. We love the peep toe take on a classic court!

InStyle Best Of British Talent Party - Arrivals

Nicole Scherzinger is our number 3 choice of star celeb in OFFICE picks. She was spotted as she made her way into the Celebrity Juice studios sporting the classic and perfectly formed ‘Risky Business’ heel.

Number 4 is Miss Pixie Lott. We love her retro look with her 60′s inspired peplum top, shorts and scarf print platform combo at the Radio music live event. Pixie wore the ‘Letterboxplatform heels.

Radio City Live

Last but not least is the country singing pop princess, Taylor Swift. With dozens of awards and famous boyfriends a plenty, she is one of the most glamourous celebs we’ve spotted in 2013 sampling a pair of our own. Here we saw her rocking the ‘Oppose‘ heeled sandal.
