With the sun we’ve been enjoying, now is the perfect time to start assembling the building blocks of your new season wardrobe. Model and fashion blogger Samio has teamed our Hotel Bustle shoe in navy leather with ripped and rolled jeans, a classic striped tee and sunglasses for a fresh take on summer in the city. Start building your new style now…
SS15 runways were awash with 70s styling, from hippy prints to disco platforms and formidable flares – so delve deep into this decade to inspire your spring wardrobe. Think faux fur, denim dresses, suede jackets and oversized fedoras.
For shoes the sky’s the limit. Platforms are an absolute must but don’t just stop there – try to work in some outsize tassels, buckles or fringing. When you need something a little more slimline go for a pair of pointed 70s style Chelsea boots or flats in croc effect leathers.
Our Orla Kiely styles will help you achieve 70s style in no time.
From meeting up with one of our favourite fashion bloggers at the Felder Felder show to street style with pugs and astronauts – London Fashion Week just keeps getting better! Watch this space for our full Orla Kiely show run-down.

Reasons to jump feet first into a new pair of SS15 sandals:
A) You’re heading for some winter sun
B) You’ve decided to rock your new sandals with socks or tights (this is a new era!)
C) You’ve just seen our Netrix Rose silver sandals – need we say more?
Slides like this can’t wait until the temperatures soar; they deserve to be worn now. Team them with luxe joggers, pearly white socks or black tights, to achieve futuristic monochrome. When your footwear is this hot you can brave anything, even a January cold snap.
Full-time fashion model and part-time fashion blogger Samio took to the streets of Manchester to road test our Merryn Moors black leather knee high boots. Samio teamed them with a polo neck, poncho and faux fur jacket – we think it’s a look that brightens up even the rainiest of days!
Surely there’s no one better qualified to give style advice than a Berlin fashion blogger – Dominique (Goldschnee) has created a statement look for winter by teaming our Lynsky Jules boots with a pair of luxe leather trousers. Embracing the chill can be tricky when your indoor destination will invariably have the radiators cranked up to full, so follow Dominique’s example and maintain your outfit A-game by layering-up. It will help take you from the great outdoors to an open fire without breaking a sweat.

Last month we sent one of our favourite fashion bloggers, Lindsey Holland, off to London Fashion Week for some style inspiration. Here’s how you can mirror the style of the fashion pack with a little help from Clarks.

Here is the second instalment of our collaboration with the ELLE team for AW14. Our models are back on the streets of East London and they’re teaming their favourite Clarks shoes with little black shift dresses, wide-leg, geo-grid print trousers and chunky knit roll neck jumper dresses – perfect autumn wardrobe inspiration.
Shop these styles here and make sure to check out the spread in November’s issue of ELLE as well as our ELLE inspired store windows.
In SS14 we fell in love with the looks the ELLE team put together starring our shoes – so much so that we’re doing it all again this season.
This time we took to the streets of East London to make ordinary moments just that little bit extraordinary. The ELLE team paired some of their favourite shoes from our AW14 collection with key pieces for this season. From geo-grid peg trousers to sporty separates, these looks will form the backbone of your new season uniform.

No longer just a place for teenagers to hang out at the weekends, the shopping mall has become the ultimate stomping ground for leaders of the fashion pack. We weren’t disappointed on a recent visit to shopping paradise Westfield Stratford City.
Go gingham style with a checked shirt, sports utility backpack, chinos and a pair of tan or brown brogues with bright colour pop laces. Rock just the right amount of geek chic by adding a pair of thick-rimmed specs in black or tortoiseshell.
We adore these wide leg cream culottes. Make the most of the last of the summer sun and team them with an off the shoulder crop top and sandals for a pretty, minimalist outfit. Give the look a refresh come September by adding a fringed shoe boot or some T-bar flats. Add a boxy black top with an elbow length sleeve to maintain that must-have monochrome.
Transitional style can often be the hardest to achieve, but with some street style inspiration you can compile your very own spring survival kit.
Achieve the look…
Cool and casual – team an on-trend biker jacket and fluffy knit sweater with skinny blue jeans cuffed and rolled. Create a refreshing contrast with bold and brave sneakers and complete the look with some retro sunnies.
Pinstriped peg trousers, cropped shirt, and quilted jacket – boxy never looked so beautiful. This look is all about clean lines. Accessories and small details are essential for this look to work – try a mock-croc cross body bag and block heel gladiator sandals to bring it all together.
One of this season’s lead stories, the athletic trend is captured with sporty leggings and a big branded tee. However trainers are the star player when it comes to this look – the brighter the better. Team with a biker jacket, denim shirt and oversized shopper bag – to ensure you’re more sports-luxe than sports day!
