What’s inspiring you this season?

With grime music enjoying what has been undoubtedly its most successful year ever (hesitant to say musically best as I’m not sure anything will top the early – mid 00’s) and this resurgence has not just been in the UK but worldwide (shout out Skepta for a sold out US Tour and deadHYPE radio taking over Amsterdam) And the clothing has come with it – Tracksuits, Air Max 95’s (will always be 110’s to me), Workouts and a £12 curved peak hat are becoming a staple in wardrobes again, brands like Palace are internationally recognised and NYC’s finest are dressing like London road man.

 Fave song at the moment?

Jamie xx feat. Young Thug & Popcaan – I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)

 What shoes/trends are going to be big in AW15?

Reebok is definitely making a come back and I expect it to really blow for AW15

Timberland is also still going to about in a BIG way, and be ready for some serious Office exclusives!

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.

PrettyPoints

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.

We Love The Midi Heel

Friday, July 24th, 2015

This season we are loving the ultimate city heel, the midi. This not-so-high heel has become our go to style when shopping, out with friends for dinner or for occasions when we know we are going to be on our feet all day.

Obviously we still have a big place in our hearts for our trusty skyscraper heels but this summer we can’t get enough of the sensible Midi.

MidiHeels

Our new collection of mid heels cover all the trends this season, with some girly Ghillie lace ups, 70’s style platforms and Kardashian inspired shoeboots.

These heels are perfect for the tall girl who doesn’t like to tower above their friends and also great for the petite girl who loves a little bit of height for everyday.

Dress up some Quincy points with some cigarette pants and a loose fitting white shirt, an ideal look for work and meetings. Wear some leopard print Queen sandals or Quartet ghillie lace up wedge with some ripped straight-leg jeans and an oversized tee.

The great thing about the mid heel is that its super easy to wear and style. It doesn’t have to look too dressy but at the same time can if needed, its a heel that every girl needs to have.

Nike Cortez | How to Wear

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

This year has seen the revival of some classic trainers and the girls especially have loved pairing them with smarter looks for a chic sports luxe style.

This season sees the return of the much loved Nike Cortez, made famous for its link to the Oscar winning film Forrest Gump. Of course these days we are less likely to run in the Cortez but instead we pair this streamline trainer with some of our favourite trends.

hwtowear

 

Just by glancing at street style it is clear to see that sportswear and logos are dominating the fashion world and people aren’t afraid to dress trainers up or down.

Wear your Cortez with jeans or denim cut off shorts for dress down weekends or smarten up with a full A line skirt or some tailored black trousers for work and parties. This slim silhouette is easy to wear and is a must-have addition to your wardrobe for the season ahead.

Sporty Whites

Friday, June 26th, 2015

With Wimbledon fast approaching, we are taking some fashion inspiration from the game and adding some sporty whites to our summer wardrobe.

This year has been all about the sports luxe style and dressing up tailored looks with sportswear and trainers. Clean, white mono trainers and sporty flats are a must have to give your smart look an athletic edge.

blog

Think boxy silhouettes mixed with skin tight fabrics and performance style textures. Classic trainer styles like the Stan Smith and the Adidas Los Angeles are great paired with tapered trousers and an oversized scuba crop top.

Sheer panelling, airtex mesh and draped jersey are the textures you should source to inspire your look. Match a tennis style pleated skirt and a structured white blouse with some pointed Lennon flats or Birkenstock EVA sandals.

Go a bit nineties with an oversized t-shirt dress and a sports jacket, wear with platform Underground Nox trainers or Reebok Classics.

Get Ready for Glasto

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

The backpack is full, the tent is packed and we are almost ready for a week of fantastic music and culture at the legendary Glastonbury Festival in Somerset.

With headline acts Kanye West, Florence & the Machine and The Who, the festival is set to be an explosive one and we cannot wait to see what everyone is wearing.

Come rain or shine the crowds pull of some weird and wonderful outfits and are usually armed with a pair of trusty Hunter boots or classic Converse to keep them dancing from dusk til dawn.

Here is some of the looks and styles we will be rocking at Glasto this year.

We Are FSTVL : What we are wearing

Friday, May 29th, 2015

This weekend we are super excited to be attending We Are FSTVL in Upminster and of course the first decision is, what are we going to wear!?

We are super inspired by boho chic and metallics this summer and we will definitely be sporting some denim, tassles and probably a kimono in case it gets cold in the evenings. Our fave styles to wear with this look are the Odessa sandal, Wild Thing lace up heel and suede Wanderlust shoeboot. All of these styles are great for a warm day and you can still dance the day away in a mid block heel or sandal.

If you are more of a trainer girl, wear some classic styles in bright colourways so they really stand-out and your friends can find you in a crowd. We are loving print this season and the Nike Aloha Air Max 1 in pink is perfect for the girl who loves a bit of 90’s style. Wear with high waisted mom shorts and a crochet crop top.

A brand new style from Nike, the Juvenate comes in great summer colours and is crazy comfortable, we will definitely have a pair in our bag when we are dancing to Gorgon City on Saturday.

Follow us at @officeshoes to get live updates from the festival tomorrow, hopefully we will see some of you there!

Girl next door Emma Stone and Oscar winner Cate Blanchett both opted for some black pointed heels like our classic On Tops that complimented their porcelain pins and black cocktail dresses by Oscar De La Renta and Alexander McQueen.

Newcomer Rooney Mara  also wore McQueen and German bombshell Diane Kruger wore a pale blue, embellished Dolce and Gabbana dress. They both kept things simple with some minimal nude, strappy heels as to not take the attention away from their dresses. Get the look with our Priscilla heel.

Bad boy Colin Farrell looked every inch the movie hunk in his grey three-piece suit and his shirt open just enough to make the girls blush. He paired his summer suit with some classic brogues like our premium Poste Montrelle.

Oscar winner Natalie Portman looked like a little black swan in her Rodarte dress, that she matched with some cute black heels like our Pretty stiletto.

Festival Trend | Boho Babe #outofoffice15

Friday, May 1st, 2015

Festival season kicked off with Coachella in California and we can’t get enough of the bohemian style that every girl was loving. Take some inspiration from the celebs, models and fash pack for your festival style and be the ultimate boho babe.

Think crochet crop tops, long kimonos, feather hair accessories and gladiator sandals as your base for a touch of hippie chic. Practice some messy hair braid and over accessories with plenty of rings, bangles and flower headpieces.

boho

Add a touch of 70’s style with some suede Chelsea boots like the Bramble or a western fringe boot like the Minnetonka Bandera. Easy to wear, these boots look great with a bell sleeved, floral playsuit or some ripped denim shorts and a kaftan style top.

Get up to date with the hottest footwear style this summer, the ghillie lace up. The chunky Wild Thing heel is fab paired with a crochet smock dress, floor length kimono and some rose gold painted toenails.

A sandal is a must have in your festival backpack in case of warmer days and a classic Birkenstock is a summer favourite. The new mocha coloured Milano with rose gold hardware are perfect with a long cami and some paisley printed shorts.
