Girls Night Out

Friday, November 7th, 2014

Finding the perfect shoe for going out-out with the girls can be tough especially when it is hard enough deciding what clothes to wear.

To help get you in the party mood and ready for the weekend, the girls in OFFICE HQ have selected their top statement shoes for the season that will go perfectly with your glam outfit.

Points are the go to style and a wardrobe staple for winter. Wear a vampy style like the Strobe or Scorpio with a low backed dress and a fluffy clutch bag for the ultimate screen siren look. Your fail-safe is the On Tops pointed stiletto, with a rainbow of colours available you can have a pair to match every outfit.

If you prefer a more minimal shoe but a stand-out outfit then the Salvation sandal or Sophia are the ideal accompaniment to a sequin dress.

Make a statement with a glittery Sapphire platform sandal with jewel detailing. This style is best paired with a simple, one colour look to make the shoes really stand-out.

How to Wear – Over the Knee Boots (OKB)

Friday, October 24th, 2014

It is the style of the season and we have been praying for the winter weather so we can show them off.

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.

The blessed, longer limbed girls can easily rock a pair of flat, thigh skimming Nova 2 boots with some tight skinnies and thick knit jumper.

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.

Girls with wider calves, fear not, the Antiquity Stretch boot has a premium leather upper with an elastic back panel for a slim, comfortable fit. Wear with a pleated skirt and soft, fluffy jumper for a feminine and flattering look.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Heavy Metal

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Metallics are here to stay, carrying over from summer but taking on a darker, inky sheen for the colder months.

This dissonance trend adds a subtle metallic detail to any outfit and the iridescent effect has a textural and dimensional quality that gives the shoes a luxe effect.

The pointed Strobe heel and Kicker Slip On look as if they have been dipped in a petrol pool with greens and purples shining through the hi-shine black. Pair with some denim, loose white tee and structured jacket.

 

140915_HeavyMetalBlog

For a warmer tone, go for the Georgia Court or Vectra Brogue in deep bronze, great matched with tailored trousers or girly dresses and thick tights this Autumn.

Make sure you have a touch of dark metallic into your wardrobe this season to easily glam up the simplest of outfits.

Nine to Five

Monday, September 1st, 2014

With new season comes a time for a mega wardrobe refresh for work so you arrive back to the office looking your best. Say goodbye to bare legs and shoulders and welcome thick tights, structured blazers and chunky loafers.

The glam, power vixens of the office can match their pencil skirts and cigarette pants with sharp pointed stilettos, like the On Tops or t-bar Selina and a pale chiffon blouse.

For those who like a heel that’s not too high and a bit of premium detail, then the Solstice cut out heel or Ted Baker Moniirra court are just enough to pair with a simple shift dress or tapered trousers.

For the tomboys and girls on the go, chunky flats like the Vaccine monk buckle shoe or the classic Extravaganza loafer will have you running for a morning coffee with ease. Go ’90s style and wear with a girly pinafore or sport some androgynous styling with a grandad shirt, slim tailored trousers and a tux jacket.

Monochrome

Friday, August 29th, 2014

A transitional trend that seems to reappear season after season is the simple and stand-out head to toe monochrome. This ’60s inspired look has had a modern makeover with clothes and footwear staying minimal and sleek.

The bold shades of midnight black and stark white have a luxe look about them, whether they are worn solely as one colour or the two together. Footwear for AW14 has a lot of focus on texture which juxtaposes the minimal mono colour and is a subtle way of adding a premium feel to an effortless outfit.

140828_Monochrome

This uncomplicated style will always be your friend as it suits all, can be worn all year round and lets face it we all have black and white in our wardrobes. A baggy white t-shirt can be easily dressed up with a structured mini skirt and fresh perforated leather Vans Classic Slip Ons or canvas Old Skools.

With clean leather boots like the Dioon Lace Up and Chelsea from Vagabond you can experiment with texture in your clothes by wearing heavy knit, gauzy/sheer panelling and lightweight jersey.

Wear a geometric patterned or striped shift dress with black opague tights and the Villain Three Part Point for a smart work-wear look or wear the same dress with Lycra leggings and the Holla Cross Strap sandals for casual weekend days.
