Garden Party Kaftans

For daytime, team an embellished Kaftan with simple accessories, for example delicate diamond stud earrings and metallic silver or gold sandals flats for a more dressed down chic look. For an alternative look, wear your kaftan as a jacket over a simple jumpsuit.

Our Favourite Up and Coming Trends For The New Season

As much as we love seeing new looks come down the runway season after season, there’s nothing more frustrating than having to wait months on end to actually get them into our wardrobes. The spring/summer 16 catwalks proved an interesting place to be – there were debuts a plenty from the likes of Massimo Giorgetti at Pucci, Peter Dundas at Roberto Cavalli and Arthur Arbesser at Iceberg. Well, it’s time we stopped waiting for warmer weather to roll around and started shopping this fashion month’s most popular trends — ASAP.

PEEKABOO BOUDOIR

The slip dress is back and looking slinkier than ever, trimmed with scalloped lace at Celine, in 90s satin or see-thru chiffon at Saint Laurent, and layered over fine knits at Pucci. Nightwear as daywear, underwear as outerwear, these designers elevated luxury undies to proper garms. Most often worn with black tailoring for grounding.

SHOULDER SMOULDER

The sexiest slice of skin to show for SS16, especially when accompanied by a halter-strap. Instead of straight across off-the-shoulder looks from this summer, this season we’re seeing more subtle peeks of the shoulder and uneven necklines in structured material, flawy dresses and denim. The trend for off-the-shoulder tops and voluminous sleeves showing no sign of abating.

SUNSET BOULEVARD

With the theme of lightness and brightness creating a shine in the new season collections, it most comes in the form of these happy sunset tones or citrus brights. Orange is looking like the juiciest option for fashion forward ladies.

RUFFLES FRILLS

Some were big. Some were small. Some were structured. Some were free to be breezy. Some were head to toe. Some were but a fluttering trim. Whatever the scale or intentions of these SS16 frills they were, quite simply, EVERYWHERE.

Refresh your wardrobe for 2016

Need to overhaul your look? Update your classic staples to get ahead of the fashion curve this year.

Rework Your Party Wardrobe:
Metallic hues were a popular choice for the SS16 shows, so if you have anything shiny left over from christmas then why not rework it for the new season? Simply spin a sparkly skirt or dress for daytime by teaming it with slouchy cable knits and flats.

Take on Tonal:
If you bought a chic suede jacket in run up to winter, then great news as you will no doubt be pleased to hear that the trend is sticking around for the next season. To make your suede outerwear appropriate for the coming season style it with similar colours for a head-to-toe tonal look. Add a 70’s floppy hat to finish this look off perfectly.

Dress up your Denim:

Denim has a new place in the style stakes for the up and coming season with providing us with a more polished look. Try dressing up a pair of dungarees or coloured jeans, with a  blouse or shirt and a tailored blazer with some court shoes.

Sequin Statement

The best New Year’s Eve outfits are ones that don’t hold back on glamour or sparkle. This Season is the best excuse to dress up and the perfect reason to spend on a party dress. Here at Love Niche we have outfit inspiration for the occasion so you can avoid the nothing-to-wear, dress twin conundrum. Whether you’re gearing up for a big date with your significant other, hosting a party, or something in between, here are some ideas from the  Love Niche Team to see in 2016 with style!

Iridescent

The best New Year’s Eve outfits take drama up a notch. When a little black dress just won’t do, step up the look and stand out in sequins.         Movable embellishments including oversized sequins are perfect for dancing the night away. You can never go wrong with sequins on New Years Eve. Catch everyone’s eye in a sparkling number glitter ball worthy.

Jumpsuit

When you feel you have exhausted all your party dresses earlier in the season. Think outside the typical New Year’s Eve outfits box, and opt for a jumpsuit instead! The one-piece style is totally relevant, with several options to choose from. Whether it’s a sleek black version or a statement-making backless jump suit. Be ready to strike a stunning pose in your trouser piece when the clock strikes 12!

Golden

Nothing says New Year’s Eve celebration like a sheet of solid sequins or beading. In sparkling gold, bring the glamour up a few notches with your New Year’s Eve outfit. The trick to keeping this look from getting too busy is to wear choice accessories: Minimal, tonal jewellery looks best with silver or gold! We love a pop of red on your lips ready to pout for a New years kiss.

If your not big on embellishments? New Year’s Eve outfits don’t have to sparkle to make a statement. A sexy little black dress is a fail-safe choice and a smart investment if you’re always looking at a packed social calendar. Keep it classic with a skinny belt and throw on a statement necklace and a chic faux-fur coat!

Planning a low-key dinner or a night in? Don’t completely ditch the sparkle! Try dressing up your favorite denim as for a New Year’s Eve outfit that’s equal parts glam and casual. A sequin top or jacket adds just enough sparkle. Keep accessories minimal for an effortless ensemble.
