Trends women are ‘borrowing’ from men

Friday, November 1st, 2013

This season women’s wear is borrowing from the boys. Androgyny was a prominent fixture on the Autumn/Winter 13 catwalks, with Stella McCartney, Dior and Vanessa Bruno all teaming masculine tailoring and materials with a few feminine flounces to great effect. And we love the way Rita Ora, LakeBell and Sophie Dahl have rocked the look on the red carpet.

We take a look at some of the key elements of the trend in recent months.

Traditional tailoring

We’re used to seeing Jennifer Lawrence in frothy gowns on the red carpet, however, she truly embraced masculine chic in the latest Dior campaign, posing in a slick tuxedo-style suit. The trend for tailoring was also a key feature of Stella McCartney’s latest collection with pinstripe double breasted dresses, peplum blouses worn with structured trousers and de constructed men’s jackets.

To get the look yourself, team a structured suit with a softer shirt or silky t-shirt and sky-scraper heels to add a feminine edge.

Statement sweaters

Givenchy, Erdem and Christopher Kane all sent models down the Autumn/Winter catwalks in baggy statement sweaters, making them one of the must-have items of the season.

Slouchy shapes and bold prints add a masculine edge to this trend. Wear with simple jeans and chunky Nike Air Max trainers for a relaxed look, or dress up with a mini skirt and boots.

Beautiful brogues

Add a masculine edge to even the girliest of outfits with one of this season’s hottest accessories, the flat shoe. Team brogues with tapered, ankle length trousers or a dress and slouchy blazer for a look which is very Dries Van Noten.

If you can’t do without your heels, why not try a pair of chunky-heeled brogues?

Over-sized coats

Simple, over-sized and streamlined are the key words to bear in mind when choosing a coat this season.

Add a feminine edge by choosing a coat in this season’s key colour; pale pink, or take inspiration from Stella McCartney and add some beautiful brooches to the lapels.


The Perfect Shoes for Halloween…

Friday, October 25th, 2013

Halloween is just around the corner and excitement levels are rising here at OFFICE HQ. It’s definitely one of our favourite holidays, when else are you encouraged to dress as outrageously as possible? Plus it’s always a good excuse to gorge on sweets!

Chloe Moretz

Unsurprisingly, we’re planning our costumes around our shoes; which unlike that plastic witches’ hat or those devil horns, you’ll want to continue wearing long after October 31st …

Office Ariel Back Zip Boots

These leather knee-high boots are exactly what a glamorous witch would wear. Team with stripy tights, a black mini dress and, of course, a pointy hat.

Office On Top Red Patent Heels

We can trace our love affair with shoes back to Dorothy’s ruby red slippers. Pair these red heels with a blue gingham dress. Tiny dog optional.

Office Illustrate Gold Sandals

Team these gladiator-style sandals with a floaty white dress and gold headband for a perfect Grecian goddess look.

Office Freddy Black Leather Brogues

Channel your inner Daisy Buchannan by wearing these heeled brogues with a Great Gatsby-esque flapper dress.

If you don’t fancy trick or treating, show off your costume at one of these spooktastic events.

Where? Halloween Special Haunted Circus, Love & Liquor, London.

When? October 31st

If Stephen King’s It is your worst nightmare, this circus-themed Halloween party complete with ‘evil clowns lurking in the shadows’ will petrify you. Fancy dress is a must.

Where? Halloween Ghost Walks, Tabard Piazza, London.

When? October 28th-31st

 Scare yourself silly at some of London’s creepiest sights, including haunted pubs and the Cross Bones Graveyard.

If a spine-chilling showing of cult horror classic Rosemary’s Baby doesn’t get you in the mood for Halloween, nothing will.

Where?AntwerpMansion Halloween Jam, Manchester.

When? October 30th

This renovated Victorian mansion is a bit spooky at the best of times so they are going all out for Halloween with horror-themed décor and music. Let’s do the Monster Mash!
