Met Gala 2015 | Who Wore What

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015

Last night the stars descended on New York to attend the annual fundraising Met Gala, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Arts.

Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry and Cara Delevingne were amongst the celeb elite that embraced this year’s theme, China: Through the Looking Glass and their interpretations did not disappoint.

Organiser Anna Wintour placed a ban on mobile phones and selfies on the red carpet this year as to not draw attention away from the real cause of the evening and also to keep things a bit more “classy”. A big fan of a selfie, model Cara Delevingne chose to wear a tailored jumpsuit and have an intricate, temporary tattoo etched all over her arms and neck.

Although given a strong theme to wear this year, it seemed that more favoured the nearly naked look. Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez, to no surprise showed off their best assets in sheer, embellished gowns and Beyoncé took everyone’s breath away with a jewelled Givenchy gown that was nude apart from strategically placed beading.

Rihanna and Katy Perry made a bigger statement with their choice of gowns for the evening, going for bright colours rather than the traditional Chinese red that seemed to be very popular.

Katy Perry was dressed by Jeremy Scott for Moschino and oozed 90’s supermodel with her new pixie crop hair, reminiscent of Linda Evangelista back in the day.

Rihanna was draped in an enormous canary yellow dress coat, edged with intricate embroidery and fur which definately made an impact next to the vivid red carpet.

Model of the moment Kendall Jenner and Disney pop icon to bad girl Miley Cyrus opted for peek-a-boo dresses, to show off their statuesque figures.

Miley’s medieval style, studded dress was custom made by designer of the moment Alexander Wang and despite looking rather demure than usual, the songstress added her own unique edge with a slicked-back blue hairstyle.

Kendall looked every inch the red carpet mermaid with her green crystal Calvin Klein gown, laced up the side to expose just enough flesh, not quite as daring as her older sister, who is not shy to some over exposure.

Unfortunately the long gowns do not give us a chance to peek at the shoes but luckily some chose to expose their ankles this year.

There were some fashion highlights and some fashion disasters this year but as always the Met Gala did not disappoint with its host of famous faces and the odd gown a princess would be jealous of.

Best Dressed Wedding Guest

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

It’s that time of year again where you have to start planning your outfit for maybe 1 or more friend’s weddings and that usual panic starts to creep up.

You don’t want to upstage the bride but lets face it, you want to get pretty close. Having the outfit and shoes decided will give you time to perfect the hair and make up and less time freaking out whilst crying in front of your wardrobe on the day.

bestdressedwedding

If you like to play it safe with the outfit then go with a plain colour (not cream, white or ivory) and make a statement with the shoes. Stand-out styles like the cut out Petite and sheer Premium Mesh heels are a great match with a simple shift dress or midi A line skirt and cami combo.

For more casual beach and countryside weddings then a wooden block heel like the Winnie or a glitzy sandal like the Ontario are your go-to styles. Pair with a cute floral tea dress or a maxi skirt and a bardot style top for a retro 70’s vibe.

For the girls who aren’t afraid of losing their stilettos in the grass, the slingback Pin Up heel in a summer pastel colour is a classic occasion shoe. Wear it pin-up style with a tight fitting dress or midi skirt and a high neck top with backless detail. As the heels do all the talking, keep the hair and accessories simple with some chic drop earrings and a low side bun.

adidas Originals Superstar : How to Wear

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

The end of 2014 saw the revival of some of adidas Originals styles from back in the day and 2015 is all about the adidas Superstar.

This shell-toe, B-Boy classic brings back memories of the 90’s when we were fully in the Spice girl phase and rocking our adidas popper trousers, crop tops and choker necklaces.

Although these trends have surprisingly come back around, the Superstar has a new sports luxe appeal and becoming one of the most papped styles at fashion week.

040215_blog

The classic black and white Superstar models are a good base to start with but with the imminent arrival of the adidas Originals x Pharrell SuperColour collection we will soon be spoilt for choice.

Keep things casual with some beat up boyfriend jeans, a stripy tee and an oversized blazer or wear with your ripped knee skinnies and a cosy chunky knit jumper.

What once was worn with a shell suit is now worn with an actual suit with the fash pack rocking them with some black tailored cigarette pants, a camel cocoon coat and some aviator shades.

The adidas Superstar is your 2015 wardrobe essential, so get in there early and start matching it with multiple outfits this season.

OFFICE Muses: – Meet Thomas

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Let us introduce to you to our OFFICE Muse, Thomas Hawking a musician and model.

He likes to keep things simple when it comes to his personal style and his footwear consists of well made classics. A self confessed style hunter, he is determined to track down something he really wants and make it his own. A rapper by trade he will often be found at his favourite rap clubs spitting bars but he doesn’t fit the rapper stereotype by any means, favouring a smart, neutral style when he performs. On dress down days he lives in his leather desert boots and adidas Superstars.

Check out Thomas’ Muse page and how to get his look here.

thomas_02

Why is office the brand for you?

I feel that OFFICE always has a consistent collection and always ticks the boxes when it comes to men’s footwear.

How do you shop?

I keep my eyes open for specific things and when I see something I like I style it to make it my own. We are lucky to live in a time that if we see something we like we can hunt it out and usually find it.

What are your top picks to get you through January?

With it being pretty cold this time of year I would definitely suggest lots of layers, I often wear a thin bomber jacket under a thick wool Harris Tweed jacket when it is really cold. Some hard wearing Timberlands or leather desert boots are a must for everyday.

What do you wear on stage how does it differ from your daytime look?

When I’m rapping I like to wear smart stuff and keep thing neutral, simple and well made. Wearing the right clothes and shoes always helps to make you feel at ease on stage and I like to add a unique spin on classic looks. Most people associate rappers with sportswear and baggy clothes and don’t get me wrong I live in my trainers sometimes but I also like to wear some nice loafers or leather boots when I’m performing.

How important is footwear when building your outfit?

I have quite a specific idea of what I like so footwear is very important to me as it completes an outfit. Whether I am staying casual with a desert boot or mixing in some sportswear with an adidas Superstar, the whole look needs to work together.

What are your style resolutions for 2015?

For me it is finding key pieces that will see you through as I’d rather invest in quality. It would be great to find 4 or 5 shoes that will see me though until summer, I like transitional styles, such as desert boots, trainers and some suede lace ups that are good throughout the seasons.

During a break from shooting we caught up with Natasha to find out who inspires her and what her style tips are for 2015.

Why is OFFICE the brand for you?

OFFICE for me is everything under one roof. From running shoes, to work shoes and party shoes, Office has something for every occasion, as well as a variety of brands to cater to everyone’s tastes. I shop mainly online as it’s convenient and allows me to multi-task without having to leave my desk.

 What are your top picks to get you through January?

A pair of brogues because they can be dressed up or down and they are comfortable for getting around in all day, plus they keep your feet warm. Over the knee boots also work with any look and can transition from day-time to night-time.

 January is a tricky time of year of new clothes, but its cold, what are your top tips?

A nice warm overcoat or jacket with a shearling lining does the trick. If you can find one that works during the day, as well as over an evening dress, then you are set. From there, it’s just a matter of keeping your toes warm with the right pair of heels.

 What new things do you invest in and one thing you can’t live without?

I invest in shoes and bags mainly but seeing as I live in London where it’s cold most of the year, a good leather jacket and coat are also essential. For me, it will always be quality over quantity.

 How often do you buy shoes?

I buy shoes once a month but when it tends to be a busy time of the year like Fashion Week, music festivals, I may shop for shoes more often because I like to wear something new to special events and places.

 Whose look inspires you?

Elena Permoniva’s style is inspiring because she mixes high end and high street looks very well.

 Do you change your look to suit your shoes?

If I buy a new pair of shoes, then I will dress around that and make sure my outfit accommodates my shoes. For the most part I wear simple items of clothing which tend to go with almost any pair of shoes.

 Who is your style muse?

Vanessa Hong of The Haute Pursuit is my style muse. She keeps it simple and inexpensive but the results of her styling are just stunning.

 Who and what inspires you in fashion?

I am inspired by blogs, tumblr and street style, as well as stylish prominent women in the industry.

 What magazines, blogs, people do you follow?

Porter magazine is a favourite of mine. In terms of blogs, tuulavintage.com because she not only blogs about clothes but travels all over the world. As for people, I have find individuals on Instagram whose style inspires me on a daily basis.

 What brands inspire you?

Saint Laurent, Balmain and Chloe, to name a few, inspire me. They celebrate femininity but also empower women in how they present themselves to people.

 What are your style resolutions?

To wear more print and colour in the winter, not just monochrome. I also want to make more use of my hat collection because I tend to rely on my beanies too often.

UGG Australia: – How to Wear

Friday, November 28th, 2014

We can’t deny the days are getting pretty chilly and the winter weather makes us girl in OFFICE HQ want to snug up in cosy jumpers and a trusty pair of UGG boots.

The Classic Short has always been a firm favourite and most girls have a pair ready to dig out when winter hits or whenever they feel like having a cosy day indoors. Wear a pair of chocolate Classic Short boots or the Mini Bailey Bow with some black skinny jeans and an oversized fluffy jumper. Great for walks around the Christmas markets or staying comfy when doing last minute present shopping.

The Classic Mini UGG boots look cute with skirts and dresses and they are not as heavy duty as the higher models. These black ones are great matched with a leather skater skirt, Nordic jumper and thick tights.
