What’s your heel type?

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

Statement heels are a major trend this AW, and not just for stilettos, all the designers from Prada to Acne are playing with new, sculpted silhouettes. We’ve selected our favourite styles below.

Flared 

This year the seventies trend dominated the runway, every major designer and high street brand were influenced by the quirky decade. With no signs of it disappearing our collection of retro inspired flared heels is ever growing, for the party season our Token Flare Heels go perfect with a culotte jumpsuit or for a feminine approach try the mid heeled Quazer in black patent.

Perspex

Christian Dior’s perspex heeled, spray on boots had everyone from Kylie Jenner to Rihanna drooling this year. For 60’s styling and dip dye effect heel try our Illinois Cylindrical Perspex boots, wear with a leather mini and simple turtle neck.

Cone

For a sleek, refined silhouette opt for a cone heel. Our strappy Tainted Cone Heels in black leather are versatile and comfortable, wear with a fitted dress or for an edgier look add fishnet tights. For the ultimate 80’s throw back wear our suede Invoke Cone heel Boots  with tight jeans and a biker jacket.

Cylindrical

Givenchy and Isabel Marant  famously covet the cylindrical heel, a directional style that looks good in various heights and widths. Our Ida Cylindrical Boots come in 70’s tan, glamorous snake and classic black, making the transition from day to night that bit easier. For a more everyday boot, Ingot Back Zip is a mid heeled, chelsea style that looks best with black tights or frayed jeans.

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.

Partysf

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.

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.

cortez3

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.

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.
