British Fashion Awards 2014

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

Last night played host to the annual British Fashion Awards, held in The Coliseum, London. The design power houses were there in full force, with the likes of Tom Ford, Sarah Burton and Manolo Blahnik all in attendance.

Superstar models like Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne looked stunning in their sparkling gowns and Cara managed to bag Model of the Year, which came as no surprise.

Victoria Beckham arrived with her loving husband David to support the success of her label which took home Best Brand.

The girls were all sporting beautiful gowns and their shoes of choice appeared to be the classic pointed stiletto or the strappy, barely-there high heel.

The guys kept it formal too with some smart lace ups or in Harry Style’s case, his trusty Chelsea boots, which he paired with a 60’s style, burgundy pin striped suit.

The gorgeous Mollie King from The Saturdays arrived arm-in-arm with her supermodel boyfriend David Gandy and not only did she look amazing, she wore OFFICE Sophia strappy heels in black. Mollie we salute you!

Friday, November 28th, 2014

We can’t deny the days are getting pretty chilly and the winter weather makes us girl in OFFICE HQ want to snug up in cosy jumpers and a trusty pair of UGG boots.

The Classic Short has always been a firm favourite and most girls have a pair ready to dig out when winter hits or whenever they feel like having a cosy day indoors. Wear a pair of chocolate Classic Short boots or the Mini Bailey Bow with some black skinny jeans and an oversized fluffy jumper. Great for walks around the Christmas markets or staying comfy when doing last minute present shopping.

The Classic Mini UGG boots look cute with skirts and dresses and they are not as heavy duty as the higher models. These black ones are great matched with a leather skater skirt, Nordic jumper and thick tights.

The leg lengthening, over the knee boot is you statement must-have for AW14 and not only looks super stylish, but keeps you pretty cosy on cold days.

It would seem that only tall girls can get away with this look but petite girls should not be afraid as there is a style of OKB to suit all.

Petite ladies, the pointed Neve or Nouveau 2  boot with a slim heel is perfect matched with high hemlines, thick tights and an oversized blouse. You can also take on some boyish styling with the chunky Notorious boot, that you can slouch down with some classic blue skinny jeans.

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.

How to Wear Knee Boots

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

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.

141008_HowToWear2

 

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

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

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.

 

141002_ParisFashionWeek

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.

Monk shoes – How to Wear

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

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.
