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.


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.



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.





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.





Men’s Leather Sandals – How to Wear

Friday, July 25th, 2014

Commonly seen as a fashion faux-pas the leather sandal has always appeared a bit feminine and uncool but this summer it has had a bit of a style revival.

The leather sandal was the usual footwear choice of our awkward dads in summer and more often than not paired with socks, the dreaded combo. They would crack them out on family holidays to everyone’s horror and since then the closest thing to a sandal a guy would put on his feet is a pair of Havaianas.

Recently men aren’t as afraid of a sandal, realising that it is the best way to stay cool in the summer and can be quite easy to style up or down.


The woven Nero slip on is a great smart choice sandal to match with some cotton twill chino shorts and shirt for those summer evening events.

For the guy who doesn’t want to be too adventurous, the Crixus sandal is a classic flip flop but with premium leather uppers and sole and is easy to wear with anything.

The trend-setters favourite is the slider or footbed like the Birkenstock Arizona 2 Strap or OFFICE Thong sandal. Dress down with jeans, a vest and a loose fitted plaid shirt or smarten up with some chinos and t-shirt.
