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.



Studio 54 – Party Shoes

Monday, November 9th, 2015

With party season ahead of us, its only right that get ourselves ready for the glitz and glamour of our favourite time of year.

Time to bring out the sparkles, glitter and lame and go OTT this season with a touch of Studio 54 glamour. The Seventies have been a huge fashion influence this year and this continues into partywear with us taking our outfit inspiration from the likes of Angelica Huston, Grace Jones and Bianca Jagger.



Back then the jumpsuits were head to toe glitter and the heels were high, but it is easy to achieve this look with a stand out pair of shoes and plenty of sparkle.

Platforms were of course the shoe of the ’70s and our Twin Platform Heels are a must have. With a vintage style moc croc leather upper, these heels look fab with a gold sequin shift dress. If you aren’t too keen on the skyscraper heels then the mirrored silver Lima Flatforms also look super cute with a classic LBD.

Suede knee boots and ankle boots were also a style statement of the era and this season we are wearing them morning, noon and night. Wear our Nomad Over the Knee Boots or Immortal Metal Heel Boots with a bell sleeve playsuit.

If points are your thing, you are spoilt for choice with our fab collection. Wow the crowds with a pair glitter On Tops, Trouble High Back Courts or our Topical T-Bar Point.

We are more than ready for the party and we hope to see you there!


AW15 | How to Wear Nike Cortez

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

The hottest trainer of the moment is the retro icon, the Nike Cortez. With its streamlined silhouette, classic style and vintage vibe it has had a revival as a wardrobe must have this season.


With a whole host of different colourways and fabrics dropping over the next few months, its hard to pick which is going to be our favourite, we may just have to get them all!

To get you girls rocking your Cortez this Winter we have styled 3 of our hottest colourways with 3 looks to show how they can be dressed up or down.

Understandably, the rose gold Cortez is an absolute fave and this metallic colourway looks great with pretty much anything, whether you are having a casual weekend or out for dinner with the girls. We have styled it with a long midi skirt and oversized roll neck jumper to give you an effortlessly chic look.

The classic all black leather Cortez with a contrasting white sole is again an all rounder but we love it with this 70’s style striped midi dress and this amazing black suede, fringe jacket.

Finally the burgundy and gold Cortez (Coming Soon) is a great colour for Winter as the dark colours will definitely compliment your wardrobe. We have paired ours with some black skinnies, white tee, long duster coat and a warm, bobble hat. This will be our go-to look this season.

Keep a look out for more colours of this retro icon and show us how you wear yours by tagging us @officeshoes.


Exclusive | Timberland Slim 6 inch Premium Boots

Monday, November 2nd, 2015

The classic Timberland boot is our ultimate favourite when the weather gets colder and the big winter coats come out. Their heritage style is timeless and they not only look great but they are fully equipped to face the elements.


Now there is a new and exclusive Timberland boot for the girls that want a more feminine style silhouette, the Slim 6″Premium Boot. This brand new look is much lighter in weight than the classic and has a slimmed down shape and sole unit. It features all the same aesthetic features as the Classic 6″ Boot with a premium nubuck leather upper, padded collar and hard-wearing rubber sole.


They are super easy to wear that you will probably spend all winter in them and then carry them on until festival season in the summer months. The slimmer shape looks perfect with jeans and a big jumper or even a cute leather skirt and some thick tights. We are officially naming the Slim 6″ Premium Boot as a winter wardrobe must have!

To make things a little easier on you, we have selected 3 of our faves and got the OFFICE HQ gang to wear them in their own way to give you a head start on how to wear them.


A totally new silhouette for us this season is the Slim Last 6″ Boot (coming soon), which is a new take on the classic 6″ but with a more streamlined, feminine look. Our OFFICE HQ model Fontaine is rocking hers with some black skinnies, black oversized shirt and an amazing suede fringe biker jacket – well jel!

For the boys we have the rugged black leather and suede classic 6″ boot with a contrasting natural gum rubber sole and chrome eyelets. Our OFFICE HQ model Nick has worn his with some black slim fit jeans, a ribbed white tee and a black parka coat, Autumn has never looked so good.

Trend Alert: The Bandal

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

Sometimes referred to as the shoe boot, the “bandal” is every girls must have heel this season.

Its been rocked by the likes of Alexa Chung, Selena Gomez and Olivia Palermo and now we cannot stop wearing them in OFFICE HQ. This flattering silhouette, can easily be dressed up or down and oozes sexy siren.

Ankle boots are the ultimate transitional style and every girl loves a heel, so this little hybrids are the perfect mix of the two and are a great shoe for Autumn as they are exposed just enough without making you cold.

the bandal

The bandal has been worn by the Kardashian clan many times, often paired with skin tight jersey. However if you aren’t brave to bear all, then wear yours with skinny jeans and and a big shirt or some tapered trousers and a classic leather jacket.

They also make a great going out shoe because your are less likely to stumble out of them and they look gorgeous with a cute skirt, crop top and some statement earrings.

We are all over this style and we can’t wait to see how you rock yours this season.
