As the weather is gradually getting better and the sun is trying to break through all the clouds, we have been excitedly planning our spring/summer13 wardrobes at Love Niche by lusting over all the latest trends! This season has so much to offer, with so many eclectic styles for everybody’s tastes.

First off colour. It is a major trend in itself this season, think everything from Macaroon pastels in baby pinks and blues, lemon yellows and pale greens. To fluorescent hues of neon in fuchsia, grass green, red, cobalt blue, canary yellow and bright burnt orange. Even though all of these colours are huge this s/s, don’t forget that every ladies favourite colour combo of black and white is still in style with monochrome dazzling on the runway! Looking for some outfit inspiration on how to wear colour or monochrome check out some of our outfit posts!

Patterns are covering the runway this season in all different ways! We have spotted checks (which have made a HUGE comeback this year!!) stripes, Spirographic prints, spots, bows, Asian influence with oriental prints and lots of floral designs from printed fabric to 3d applique flowers in daises, poppies and luscious roses. Exotic animal prints have also been heavily used by designers this year, snake skin, cheetah, leopard are just to name a few. Love Niche tip; Don’t be afraid to clash your prints/patterns, make yourself stand out from the crowd and be adventurous, fashion is only what you make of it!

Silhouettes and shape is a key factor to every season, this year silhouettes are heavenly influenced by the 60’s, from feminine lines of tailored ladylike chic or menswear inspired Avant garde ensembles. On offer are Bermuda shorts, tuxedo, slouchy box shaped suits, bell bottoms. Or If you are the daring sort, why not try a cropped bandeau top showing off your bare midriff for a full on peekaboo effect. However ladies the MUST HAVE item which is suited for most, is the Precious Pencil skirt. They are versatile and a staple for every season. They can be classy and sophisticated, demure to sexy, ladylike to flirty with thigh high slits or even more seductive with double slits, take your pick!

Texture – Say goodbye to shiny disco balls and say hello to high shine. Iridescence sheen, metallic, lustrous foils and holographic will make any outfit radiant and make a gleaming impact. On the contrary featherweight sheer materials, like chiffon organza mousse-line & lace will bring lot of freshness & fun to any spring wardrobe. Also a big hit this season are silky satins that contract beautifully with sheer fabrics. Denim, with every s/s is huge; jeans, shorts, skirts, dresses, jackets but get it right this spring/summer and wear your denim in dungaree form, yes you heard us right, dungarees are here to stay and we are proud to say we love them and you should too! (embrace your inner 90’s child!)
