Whilst we write up this short style review of the first weekend of Coachella’s mens fashion, we are slightly excited to see what happens the second weekend of this music event. Coachella is one of the most anticipated yearly festivals hosted in California, whilst ladies wear small bits of denim and embrace their inner bohemian, menswear this year focused on contrast layering, bright colours and white sneakers. Streetwear is always at the pinnacle of these events where branded merchandise was everywhere to be seen. We cannot wait for the second installment this weekend. We are pretty sure Converse, Vans, Adidas and Nike will be making their way onto our radar.

One of the largest festivals hosted at Empire Polo club in California, Coachella is world famous for their music extravaganza. The festival is held over two weekends (its that in demand), headliners this year were Kendrick Lamar, Lady Gaga, Drake and Stormzy. What makes Coachella so special?
The outfits are a first on our radar but also, this global festival is set during the start of the warm season and host the most in demand after parties with all the right models. This year we saw the perfect balance between bohemian and contemporary fashion choices, whilst we can all agree that only Rihanna could make Gucci’s ensemble look festival ready .Wellies are not your first choice for this event, but we saw plenty of sightings of Vans, Converse, boots and sandals. We are looking forward to the second weekend of fashion sightings, but it’s finally official, festival season has begun!

The Christmas Season is a great opportunity to catch up with friends & family. No matter whether you’re eating too much, drinking too much or spending too much, you have a great excuse…..it’s Christmas! With the weather being less and less inviting we wanted to give some great idea’s that’ll get you out the house and get you feeling super festive.
If you’re in London then Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park offer’s pretty much everything you’d want for a Christmas themed day out. Celebrating 10 years this year since it first opened there is something for everyone. Ice Skating, Zippos Christmas Circus and an Ice Bar are just some of the options as well as the traditional fun fair rides and live music there’s no way you won’t feel the Christmas spirit.
A slightly more romantic evening could be spent ice-skating around the courtyard of Somerset House. With it’s huge Christmas tree standing central to the rink you won’t be able to help yourself. They also put on club club nights allowing you to skate around the rink with style. Open until January there’s plenty of time to get yourself down there.
If Birmingham is your city then you’ll know comes alive every winter with the arrival of the largest German Christmas Market outside of Germany and Austria. With over 120 stalls there something for everyone.
Manchester is home of Europe’s largest walk-in Christmas tree.The tree is 90 ft. high and weighs 18-ton, features more than five miles of fairy lights with 100,000 bulbs, 1,000 of the are the same size as a football. Set up in Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet, visitors can step inside the huge tree and marvel at the internal illumination and festive Christmas scene. Imagine that!
With all this out-door fun you’ll need to be warm and comfortable especially if you’ve spent an evening skating or falling over if you’re skills aren’t up to scratch. Check out our winter warmers to get you through the festivities.

So Field Day came and went this weekend and we were lucky enough to attend this East London based festival. As could have been predicted the whether was not as we would have liked but did not dampen our spirits. Getting muddy at a festival is part of the fun right? Not only was the line up amazing including artists such, Skepta, Nao, Mura Masa, James Blake and PJ Harvey but the food was pretty yummy also. The crowds that turned up made sure they had there best ” mucky festival ” outfits on and still managed to kill it even if they were getting stuck in the mud.
Here are some of our favourite looks.
Follow us on Snap Chat – OfficeShoes – for future festival fun.
Field Day Festival is fast approaching and you’ll need the low down on the fiercest footwear to wear on the day! Located in Victoria Park in East London on the 11th and 12th of June, it’s set to be a hell of a line-up. Artist such as James Blake, Nao, Skepta, PJ Harvey and the Mystery Jets are all set to make an appearance – who’s excited? We are!
The Hunter Wellie is a great choice if you want to ensure dry feet on the day. With current British weather being super unpredictable it might be a good first choice. Both Alexa Chung and Caroline Flack always rock the Wellie Boot so well.
However, if you want something a little less farmer chic then Dr Martens are the festival shoe for you. Check out Bella Hadid and Gwen Stefani.
For those willing for sun and getting your legs prepped and ready, we got yo back!
Vanessa Hudgens and Alexandra Burke looking like boho babes in their gladiator sandals.

Let’s be honest, rarely does Kendall Jenner ever get it wrong.
