Party Season Flats

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

Party Season is in full swing and to aid your feet going from event to event it’s time to invest in a pair of glam flats. Taking inspiration from the pioneers of smart casual dressing Olivia Palermo and Alexa Chung, add a metallic brogue or suede loafer to see you through the Christmas season.


If you’re not the kind of girl who’d wear a pointed stiletto or a skyscraper platform you can still be just as feminine and fabulous in a pair of our statement flats. Dress down a silk maxi with a pair of patent brogues like Amber Heard, our Result Points come in classic black or autumnal burgundy.

If you find it hard to make the transition from work wear to formal wear why not try a tailored evening suit and match with a pair of croc loafers like our Rita High Cut for understated elegance.

Metallic uppers are still very much on trend this year, smarten up jeans and polo with our Vibe Loafers in futuristic gun metal or elevate a plain jumpsuit with our nineties style Rave Monk Shoes.

For the refined ladies out there our dainty Royal Slippers in suede or our Limelight loafers look great with a full skirt and cashmere jumper.

For boyish charm opt for some hard wear like our Lex Side Zip in 70’s tan or Rumble Front Zip in glossy black.

Our selection should put you one step ahead of the party game this year.



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.



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.






#FROW – What to Wear @ London Fashion Week SS16

Thursday, September 17th, 2015

With London Fashion Week kicking off tomorrow, its seems only fitting that we share the best #FROW looks from New York to give you a head start and become part of the fash pack.


We have picked our top looks from the last week and paired them with our top footwear picks to get you looking front row ready.

Take things to new heights like Jourdan Dunn and rock a pair of Neve over the knee boots with some denim shorts and a long sleeved top for that ultimate 70’s siren look.

Stomp around in style like Hailey Baldwin in some classic Timberland boots, we are loving the grey nubuck pair this season and they look super cute with muted pastel colours.

Make sure you have a statement pair of flats as they are a fashion week staple. If you are lucky enough to be running between fashion shows, then a classic pointed ballet flat like our Lifestyle in white will be you best friend for long days.

If you are a trainer girl and can’t live without them, a pair of smart adidas Gazelle OG‘s will look great with a long midi dress and leather jacket.

Pretty Pointed Flats

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

This summer we have been loving the pointed flat and its fast becoming a smart wardrobe must have that transcends the seasons.

Its fair to say that so far this British “summer” hasn’t been all its cracked up to be and we seem to have had more cold wet weather than blistering sunny days. We are still super excited when we get to wear our sandals but we all need a statement flat that can be worn whatever the weather and the pointed flat is our fave.

Not only does it elongate your pins when worn with a skirt or dress but its an easy way to dress up some boyfriend jeans and a logo tee.


The pointed flat has that Parisian appeal that makes it appear simple but look premium and is an effortless chic style that will take you through until Autumn.

We all have a summer wardrobe and a winter wardrobe but there are those few capsule items that every girl needs for those inbetween days and the pointed flat is definitely one.


Superbowl XLIX

Monday, February 2nd, 2015

Last night (US time) early hours for us saw the biggest US sporting event, the annual Superbowl XLIX. Hosted in Arizona, this iconic game saw the New England Patriots take on the Seattle Seahawks with the Patriots winning by just 4 points.


Even though the American Football game had us all gripped, the real thing we were excited about was the half time show. A record breaking number of viewers from around the world tuned in to watch Katy Perry perform alongside Missy Elliot and Lenny Kravitz, with guest supports throughout the evening from John Legend and Frozen’s Idina Menzel.


Katie Perry had multiple outfit changes during her performance and was accompanied by dancing sharks, flew in on a huge flaming star and rode across the stage on a huge  lion.


Get the Superbowl look with our selection of metallic silver heels and flats.



Golden Globes 2015 – The Shoe Icons

Monday, January 12th, 2015

Last night played host to the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards, which saw some of Hollywood’s biggest stars out in full force wearing some gorgeous designer gowns.

It wasn’t just the gowns and tailored suits that had us green with envy, the classic footwear choices that many of the stars opted for had us desperate to get the look.


Actress Emma Stone went for the feminine classic, the pointed stiletto whereas our favourite girl-next-door Jennifer Aniston opted for a sexy thigh split dress with minimal 2 strap heels.



Golden Globe winner Eddie Redmayne kept it smart and slick in a bow tie and velvet blazer and matched it with a smart brogue. Singing sensation Lorde went for a masculine style in an oversized suit but added feminine touches with a crop top and pointed flats.






The Party Survival Guide

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

We have had the outfit planned for weeks and the venue picked but we want to make sure we are totally prepped with all the tips and fixes to ensure we have the best time at the Christmas party.

We decided to ask the ladies of OFFICE HQ for their party tips for going out-out and little tricks they cant live without when dancing the night away.




1. Wear Bridget Jones pants at the start of the night, then carry a spare for later on when you want to ‘loosen up’ a little and let yourself go on the dance floor (our fave tip!)

2. Always carry some flats like the Butterfly Twists fold-able pumps in your bag for the end of the night

3. Spray your face with hairspray before you leave to seal your make up to your face, no more sweaty faces.

4. Never leave the house without mascara & lipstick

5. Pop some plasters in your bag, just in case you take an embarrassing tumble.

6. Schedule in regular loo trips with the girls throughout the night to have a gossip about guys

7. Always keep an eye out on anyone stuck in awkward conversation in the corner of the room – always nice to save a friend in need

8. Arrive fashionably late and leave at the peak of the party

9. Eye brightening eye drops, sting like hell but make your eyes dazzle! Pop in pre make-up.

10. On taxi journey home, make sure to divert via McDonalds or kebab shop (the ONLY way to end off a party night)






Fabulous Flats

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

With party season about to kick off, we are all hitting the shops trying to find the perfect outfit to wear to the office Xmas party and all the other formal events we are sure to be attending this winter.

Finding the shoes to match the outfit is always tricky but our motto is to start with the shoes as its much easier to dress from the bottom upwards.

Not all ladies are keen on a pointed stiletto or a skyscraper platform and especially the taller girls who don’t want to tower above all their friends. You can still be just as fabulous in a pair of glam flats and we have selected our favourite statement pumps to get you in the party mood.



If you favour plain coloured outfits with little fuss, you can make a statement with you shoes, adding a pop of colour, texture or premium finish. Pair an LBD with a pair of pointed metallic and pony-skin Vibe Loafers for a minimal, 60’s look.

For a more boyish look, wear an oversized sequin tee with some smart, black cigarette pants and stand out with a pair of leopard print Virtue Monk Shoes or some studded Vaughan Lace Ups.

For slightly more dressed down events in a casual bar or restaurant, add a flash of metallic or patent with the Verse Loafer or Karmen Ballet pump and match with some ripped, turned up jeans and a pastel, cashmere jumper.

For the girly girls who love a cami and a prom style tulle skirt, the zebra print Kwik Step Slipper and silver Vixen Point are the perfect accompaniment, adding a touch of ballerina elegance to a classic party look.





Office x Breast Cancer Care

Monday, September 29th, 2014

OFFICE has supported Breast Cancer Care for the past four years and last October we raised a record breaking £69,000 to support this worthy charity.

We managed to raise this money in many ways, with customer donations in store, staff fancy dress days and a Bake Off in OFFICE HQ. But the most successful was our special edition Breast Cancer Awareness Month shoe and this year we have 3 styles! These three party inspired shoes have come just in time for the party season and there is a style to suit all with a classic flat, strappy mid and pointy stiletto.

The Cecilia Toe Cap Ballerina features a sparkling pink glitter upper with Parisian style quilting and a patent black toe cap, perfect with a pretty black prom dress.

The Je’ Taime mid heel has a fuchsia pink suede, strappy upper with an ankle buckle fastening. This minimal heel is easy to wear with anything from dresses to smart cigarette trousers.

The On Tops stiletto is one of our all time favourites at OFFICE and this special edition version features a pale pink metallic upper with patent stiletto heel and is best paired with a fitted dress or dressed down with ripped boyfriend jeans.


With one in eight women now diagnosed with breast cancer, many of OFFICE’s customers and employees have had a loved one face this brutal disease. That’s why Breast Cancer Care – the only UK-wide specialist support charity – is so important to us. So, this October, OFFICE is going to start fundraising once again! The 3 special edition shoes will be on sale online and in-store and  the staff will be doing their bit too! The money raised will ensure Breast Cancer Care can continue to provide its emotional support network, specialist nurses and local services for free.

Laura says: “I was diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2012 at 22 years old. I had to have a double mastectomy and reconstruction, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. I used Breast Cancer Care’s website which was really helpful, it was a place to find information I could trust. Thank you OFFICE for promising to raise even more money for this amazing charity, with your help they can support other women just like me.

The Cecilia and On Tops will be available to buy from the 1st October and the Je’Taime is coming soon! 50% of the shoe sales + VAT go to Breast Cancer Care.

You can also show your support by donating in store or buying this year’s Breast Cancer Care pin which is only available online.
