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.

School Daze

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

With September around the corner and summer holidays coming to an end, it is the perfect excuse to get new shoes, accessories and stationary treats to show off at school.

We have taken some inspiration from classic TV shows and movies of the ’80s and ’90s that made school look like the coolest place to be.

Classics such as Saved by the Bell, Sweet Valley High and Clueless still manage to inspire fashion, with girls loving chunky t-bar flats, quilted ballerinas and the guys channelling their inner Zack Morris with varsity jackets and Nike Air Huarache’s.

Tomboys will love some Kickers brogues or Kennedy Lace Ups and can girl it up with some frilly or knee high socks and pleated skirt.

Showcase some Cher Horowitz style with a classic ballerina flat like the Karmen, or add a bit of height with the Gossip, both are sure to make you the most popular girl in school.

Bookworms will often be found in the library sporting some retro loafers like the Extravaganza and Volt Chain Slipper, but don’t underestimate the style of the ‘nerds’ as geek is most definitely chic.

City Slicker

Monday, August 18th, 2014

Since the release of Wolf of Wall Street last year, the suited and booted city men have adopted the Jordan Belfort look and have taken a bit of ’80s style inspiration.

The streets of Bishopsgate and Bank have an added touch of Wall St glamour with city slickers pounding the pavements to and from work in some sharp tailoring. Long gone are the ill fitted suits, creased shirts and printed ties, with the working gentleman now taking a much more premium approach to his wardrobe.

Slim fit 3 piece suits, pocket squares and matching ties are the everyday norm, kept sleek and sophisticated with the slim Sean Chelsea Boot or slipper loafers like the Artistry and Aristocrat.

Pale, feminine colours that were popular in the ’80s, such as powder pink, baby blue and yellow are back in the form of contrast ties, pocket squares, socks and shirts.

When the days are a bit warmer or it gets a little heated in meeting, a pair of braces against a white shirt is the perfect boardroom attire. Keep it New York inspired with the Appraisal American Brogue and a double breasted navy suit.

Mens AW14 Style – How to Wear

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

Lads, its time to start thinking new season as the colder weather is approaching faster than we think and it is a great excuse to have a bit of a wardrobe overhaul and dig out the layers and muted colours.

This season is all about the rugged gentleman, fusing tailoring with casual wear and adding oversized outerwear. Some of the recent grooming trends are sticking around with guys opting for short, back and sides and a bit more facial hair than usual, which will come in handy for the winter.

140812_MensAW14

Rugged styles like the Amuse Lace and the Alpaca Apron have that old American workwear style and look great matched with deep indigo turn up jeans, heavy knits and if you are feeling adventurous, a touch of double denim.

A popular formal style this season is the monk shoe and this also transcends into casual with the Access Double Monk which has a touch of wingtip detailing. Navy suede will feature heavily this autumn and will match with grey tweeds, brown hues and denim.

For formal occasions or if you fancy changing it up a bit in the office, the Artistry tassle loafer is best paired with a 3 piece suit for the Jordan Belfort’s of the world or worn with some nice tailored trousers and shirt for an evening in a nice city bar.

His & Hers Style

Monday, August 4th, 2014

Lately it would appear that the girls are borrowing from the boys a lot more and its not just grabbing his t-shirt or jumper every now and then, its taking style inspiration from his classic looks.

Traditionally men’s formal favourites consist of brogues, loafers and Chelsea boots and now the girls are getting in on the action and looking great doing it!

140729_HisHers

A classic retro brogue like the men’s Frankie or women’s Temperley looks great with a pair of dark indigo skinny jeans and a collarless granddad shirt, a simple outfit that suits both sexes.

The Mod favourite Chelsea boot is a firm favourite with the likes of Harry Styles and Alexa Chung and is pretty easy to wear in both summer and winter. Girls can rock  the Coolcat Chelsea with a pair of cut off shorts and loose vest or smarten up in a ’60s style shift dress. Men often wear a Chelsea boot like the Sean with a suit in the colder months as its simple and smart but paired with some slim fit black jeans and a simple white t-shirt they can channel their inner Mick Jagger.

The new men’s formal fave is the monk buckle like the hi shine Giovanni that is a sleek alternative to a lace up to match with suits for the office and the odd wedding. Girls can utilise this style a bit more as it looks good with most outfits. The Verity is quite a chunky option and fuses a bit of ’60s and ’90s in its silhouette.

A gentlemans casual classic is the driver like the Sydney, a timeless style that never looks out of place on the streets of Monaco and St Tropez. Men can use this style to smarten up some jeans and a shirt without pushing the boat out and girls can wear with dresses, ripped boyfriend jeans or summer shorts.

Power Points: How to Style

Friday, July 18th, 2014

 

A pointed toe is one of this season’s hottest shoe trends. Seen gracing the catwalks of SS14, the classic pointed silhouette is one of the most popular heels of choice this summer. Great for lengthening legs, slipping on a pair of points not only elongates your pins making legs look slender, it also adds a sleek and sophisticated feel to just about any outfit.

Team a pointed pump with a pair of vintage light washed boyfriend jeans for a feminine take on a casual look . Alternatively style a classic pointed stiletto heel with a pair of tailored shorts or cropped cigarette trousers – taking you from the boardroom to the bar!

OFFICE in the press – looking forward to 2013

Monday, December 17th, 2012

In it, on it and all over it. OFFICE shoes are taking the magazine world by storm. We have some fantastic coverage coming up in 2013. Here’s our pick of the bunch.

With everyone getting into the Christmas spirit we can’t wait to see those first glittering snowflakes to fall. The Perspective loafer is a great snow substitute. Once the snow arrives though, reach for the Educated Loafer or Break of Dawn ankle boot to add some sparkle to your day.

Company have taken out our Zebra Kandi Court and used it in their high street edit. Who says a pavement can’t be a catwalk?

Daring outfits with clashing patterns require some drop dead gorgeous high heels. These Battle Spikes from Jeffrey Campbell are just the heels to give you a kick start in the war with the patterns!

Glamour takes a look at some of the best shoes for work. From OFFICE it’s the Eva Point flat in grey suede. Cute, comfy, kitch! Who could a resist a sneak peek of these in the office? We couldn’t!

This is a premiere for these guys in our blog this week. Going all out blue in this issue, the guys are matching their jeans with the Montague lace brogue from Poste. Perfect for going back to work after Christmas.

My Job


“I report on events around the world – fashion events, premieres, parties – to see who was wearing what and who got it right for Vogue.co.uk. I write trends reports to relay what we have seen. This month I’ll be doing this from the London Fashion Week shows.

I worked at Vogue Magazine for a few years before moving to the digital side. An opportunity came up which I saw as a great chance to explore what is becoming the future of publishing.


My advice to anyone who wants to break into the world of fashion is to do as much work experience as you can, and be the hardest worker there. People never forget a good intern and you don’t realise how much people value that when you’re in that position. Also, have a bit of an open mind about how you might reach your end goal; paths that go in a straight line are never the most interesting and you shouldn’t be quick to close doors.”

My LFW Diary

“Today I attended and reviewed the Vivienne Westwood Red Label, Topshop Unique, Acne and Jonathan Saunders shows for Vogue.co.uk.

The Jonathan Saunders’s show in the Tate Modern was incredible, it’s the only time the gallery has ever hosted a fashion show and it felt like a real privilege to see it, definitely my highlight of the day.

There are so many venues now it’s not always about what’s happening in the main pavilion, and we try to cover to the tents and other venues in some way as you always see something surprising. What I love about the London shows is that there’s no ‘bedroom’ culture in the other cities like there is here; young designers working off their bedroom floor or kitchen table in order to get a collection together. It completely opens up the fashion forum.

I used to work for the designer Jonathan Saunders so I know that putting on a show at LFW is like having a baby! You eat, sleep and breathe it for so long, and I always think about what’s been going on behind the scenes to make everything happen when I’m sitting in my seat for those few minutes.

In terms of emerging trends for Spring Summer ’13, there has been a lot of sporty mesh, and space age seems to be a big talking point. American film director of Space Odyssey, Stanley Kubrick, keeps cropping up as a fashion reference too!

I can’t do the LFW after parties like I used to which is a shame but I need to be on top form for all 5 days of Fashion Week. Saying that, I popped to see friends at the Vivienne Westwood party at the Embassy, the Whistles/Tank party at Bubbledogs and Jonathan Saunder’s after party at Bistrotheque. I will be saving my real celebrating until the end of Paris Fashion Week when I will finally be able to relax once all the show reports are complete!”
