New Brand | Cortica

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015

We always love welcoming a new brand into the OFFICE family and we are super excited to introduce you to Cortica.

CORTICASTORY

This small British brand is famed for its “progressive hybrid footwear” and champions the lightweight, sporty style. Super sleek and easy to wear, these minimal silhouettes are a great transitional style to take you from summer until early Autumn.

The two styles we have focused on are the women’s Epic and the men’s Infinity Lace, which both feature a foot hugging neoprene upper and moulded sole unit. The Epic also comes in men’s sizes and has cut out detail to the sides and front foot as well as a mesh heel and thermoplastic heel cap and tongue label. The Infinity lace up is very similar minus the cut outs and features a minimalist lace up system.

The Epic

WOMENS MINT

How to Wear

This style is effortlessly feminine and an easy way to add some sports luxe styling into your everyday wardrobe. Whether your pairing them with a shirt dress for casual days or some tailored trousers and a blouse for the office, the Epic is the perfect in-between style to dress up or down.

How to Wear

The guys have been on the sportswear smart look long before the girls caught on and the Insanity Lace Up bridges that gap between smart/casual. Keep your outfit monochrome and pair these with some good fitting black jeans and a long woven t-shirt, for a straight off the catwalk look.

Sneak Peak | AW15 Trend: Upper East Side

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

While we bit farewell to what is left of the summer holidays, there is one thing we can get a bit excited about and that’s our new AW15 wardrobe. Its a shame that the weather will be cold but it gives an easy excuse to wear more layers and fully show off our new looks for the season.

New York is a huge fashion reference this Autumn and we thought we would give you a sneak peak at another trend you will be seeing on the streets very soon. Moving away from the downtown grungy style that we looked at previously, this trend takes us uptown to the Upper East Side. Time to rewatch Cruel Intentions, Gossip Girl and Devil Wears Prada  and uses as a key style influence for this look.

blog

It is a bit prissy and girlie with an edge of Seventies, Studio 54 glamour. The skirts are high waisted and A line, the trousers are flared and the tops are draped and feminine.

Footwear definitely nods to the 70’s with detailed loafers, slim, block heeled knee boots and platform Mary Janes. The colour palette is a lot of earthy browns and tans mixed with black, burgundy, cream and dusky pink. Fabrics for this trend are suede, corduroy, thick knit and leather and the footwear will see elements of moc croc, pony effect and embossed leather.

The great thing about this trend is that you can use elements of your summer wardrobe and rework them for Autumn. The Seventies was a huge hit this summer and we all have a suede skirt or boho blouse that we can style with thick tights and some knee boots on colder days. The look is smarter and less hippie chick but the foundations are already there from this season to take you through until next. Often its the shoes and the accessories that make the difference and help transition your look.

Sneak Peak | AW15 Trend: New York Grunge

Friday, August 7th, 2015

With the new season fast approaching we thought we would give you a little insight into some of the trends that will be hitting the streets in Autumn.

First up is the New York grunge trend that reminds us of Harmony Korine films, Juergen Teller photography and 90’s supermodels. Utilising the dark colours your associate with the big city and  the colder months.

Think dark washed denim, chunky 90’s lace ups, oversized jumpers and embossed leathers. This dark and moody trend is effortless cool and makes boyish silhouettes look ultra chic and feminine.

Untitled-1

The trend embraces that NYC Downtown appeal and mixes it with a touch of 90’s rebellion, bringing back flat-form soles, creepers, box leathers and muted metallics.

Its easy to wear and easy to achieve as it mixes monochrome pieces, flashes of gunmetal metallics and the odd colour drenched item.

To get the look, make sure your wardrobe includes some black skinnies, a stripy tee, some pointed ankle boots and some chunky lace ups or slip ons.

Get ready for heavy soles, mesh panelling, block heels and boyish silhouettes from our new AW15 collection, coming soon!

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?

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

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.
