Love Niche London Fashion Show: Pop-up Shop and Catwalk Show

Love Niche London played host to a pop-up boutique and catwalk show at As You Like It in Jesmond last week to celebrate the launch of our brand new website www.lovenichelondon.com

The guests were welcomed by us with a class of bubbly as they all took front row seats and patiently waited for the show to begin.

The catwalk showcased models wearing our brand new Love Niche London collection which is now available to buy online. There were various looks created on the catwalk with the models hair styled by North-East’s award winning hairdressers Hooker & Young. The looks were from casual day looks to glamorous night out styles, all of which were then available to buy from the pop-up shop at the end of the show. Alongside the clothing was decadent costume jewellery, scarves and clutch bags.

The highlight of the evening was the fashion show, giving the fashionistas in the room a taste of what to expect from the studio’s brand new diffusion line Love Niche London. The collection brings you the best of British high street fashion at guilt-free prices. All the looks shown on the fashion show were in the price bracket of £15- £55. The looks were styled by fashion stylist and owner of Love Niche Studio Nisha Vedhara.

The collection was dominated by current season trends including soft sorbet shades and winter florals, with dresses and blazer style jackets complementing cigarette patterned trousers with bralet crop tops, and finally outerwear for the upcoming winter weather. Each look was styled and complimented with some of the most luxurious jewellery.

Fashion Friday – Accessorise Like Rihanna

Accessories can often make or break an outfit, they add personality, style and colour. It’s almost like salt, a little can add flavour and interest, too much and you’ve ruined a perfectly good meal, or in this case, outfit. Balance is often key, make one item stand out such as a statement necklace, oversized earrings or multiple rings. Of course an arm party is always welcome, who doesn’t love to stack bracelets? however we think just the one arm is enough!

Our style crush has to be Rihanna who always gets her accessories right, from the dainty to the dramatic she’s always on the fashion radar. Here’s how she wears hers

The Statement Necklace

Tip – If wearing a loud colourful piece balance with neutral shades and block colours. If the item is metallic try bold colours to make it really stand proud.

Rihanna style

The Oversized Earrings

Tip– To avoid looking too dressed up juxtapose this statement piece of jewellery with a simple ponytail or the latest look – the slicked back hair.

Rings on Rings

Tip – Go as excessive as you like, mix colours, styles and stones, to elongate fingers add midi rings which sit above the knuckle.

We have amazing one off statement cuffs and necklaces with designs coming exclusively from an Indian fashion jewellery designer so you won’t have the worry of bumping into anyone in town with the same look!

Sometimes the classic looks, are the best ones. This fitted, curve hugging, tailored black jumpsuit from our Love Niche London collection, is ticking all our buttons, classic, chic, stylish, on trend and has the wow factor! We have kept it simple and fresh for this evening look, minimal is sometimes the best way to go by not over complicating your evening look, you can still turn heads even when in something so classic and simple. Remember ladies sometimes less is more!

We have added some bling, with gorgeous statement crystal diamond earrings, a small clutch with some sparkle and of course the killer heels! You could add a pop of colour into this look with a coloured cuff or heels!

OOTD; Neon day to night

20130703-194757.jpg

 

Neon has been one of our favourite trends this summer, we just can’t get enough! So we thought we would share our take on how we would wear neon day to night using the same bold cobalt peplum top and amazing colour clashing neon heels.

Our daytime look is quite bold and fun, teaming monochrome jeans (another huge trend) with the peplum top, adding a leather jacket for another texture to keep the look balanced. The neon pink scarf ties in with the pop of pink on the heels, these neon colours keep the look exciting and interesting.

For our evening look we have swapped the bold monochrome jeans for a more elegant black fitted pencil skirt, which hugs all your curves. We ditched the leather jacket and scarf and went for a neon pink box bag which also has monochrome harlequin sequin detail around the edges. The classic shapes and style of this outfit have been revamped by introducing bold brighter colours making it bang on trend!

Which look is your favourite, day or night?

This week’s styling tip!

We have already given you our tips on styling while you are on holiday, how to pack your suitcase and what type of bikini suits your body shape, so now here are our tips for how to dress while traveling to your holiday destination!

When traveling your style should not have to be compromised! You can still travel in style using our guide;

  • Wear well fitted trousers that have extra stretch in for comfort
  • Wear a loose fitting top so you feel relaxed and don’t get too warm
  • Take a jacket or blazer with you while on the plane as it can get very cold in the air
  • A scarf is the perfect accessory to keep you warm if you haven’t packed a jacket
  • Make sure you take a large bag to keep all your travel necessities in, including your travel organiser (make sure you check out our post on what to take in your organiser!)

This first look features our best selling indigo ultimate stretch jeans! They are super versatile and comfortable. With them being a dark indigo wash we have teamed them with a light print top and our favourite white summer coat.

Look 2 is the same as look 1 just swapping the summer coat for a neutral colour scarf with beautiful delicate lace trim. When wearing a printed top its best to keep your accessories plain and simple.

Look 3 again with the indigo stretch jeans, this time with our best selling drape top in lime! The light weight fabric makes this top extremely comfortable while being bang on trend with the bright colour. Adding the snake print scarf relaxes the outfit and adds extra warmth.

photo 4 (12)photo 5 (6)

Look 4 is our final look, white on white. White is a major trend this summer and looks as though it is here to stay through to next year so this is the perfect look. These skinny white jeans have extra stretch in them to make them very comfortable and fit perfectly. Adding the coloured layered tops breaks up the white and also gives extra warmth.

Make sure you check out last weeks style tip on how to pack a capsule holiday wardrobe!

This week’s styling tip.

Let your jewels take centre stage

Whatever your style, great accessories are a highly personalised way to express your creative fashion personality and find your fashion bliss.

Great accessorising reflects and compliments your style on multi-facetted levels, at times shamelessly taking centre stage with head-turning self confidence. In the words of the iconic celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe “Accessorises are the antidote to blah!” And this alone is a great reason to add a little BLING into your personal style. Accessories will add a complete approach to your styling repertoire adding versatility to your wardrobe. For instance a statement necklace can transform the mood of an outfit from “office” to understated glam in a twinkling!

If your evening dress is a stark stunner (or has a lot of embellishment), one single showstopping accessory, like Grace Kelly‘s earrings, is all you need.

When deciding to add accessorising to your style skills-set, remember that as with all thing fashion there are no hard fastened rules, and rules are made to be broken… aren’t they? But a word of warning! Accessorising is Addictive and it’s the perfect way to add that personal touch to an outfit. In essence accessories are the finishing touch that will leave you feeling styled.

We have just received a fabulous range of our Bling at Love Niche. Stunning Statement pieces in 92.5 silver and in exclusive Stones like  Smoky Labrodorit, calsedon , Barok Pearls, Green kuarts, Die kuarts pink and Turkuaz perl to name a few.

Here our some pictures to tease you

A tip before we go

 When wearing large and colorful statement jewelry, try to keep your clothing a solid color – no crazy patterns or florals. Wearing a coloured piece of jewel is how you can add colour through accessories(we did a post about it earlier, to read all about it Click here )and keep your other jewellery, accessories and your makeup toned down and elegant or else it takes the attention away from your gorgeous jewelry!

Hope you enjoyed reading our post.

Summer is already here…! And you have decided to spend some holidays in a wonderful area surrounded by heavenly beaches with sun shining bright on you. There you want to flaunt your new bikinis and swimsuits and look glamorously hot.
Looking glamorous on the beach needn’t be a chore – a few simple fashion tips that anyone can follow will help you achieve that sexy, sun-kissed, glamorously chic look that will take you from beach to bar with ease.

These can include a beach bag, some killer sunglasses, a comfy beach towel, gorgeous flip-flops, wedges, Audrey Hepburn style sunhats, fun colourful jewellery, a flattering swimsuit that’s suitable for your body shape (We did a post on it before. Click here to read all about it). But for us the list doesn’t end here.

These days Every wise girl knows a trip to the beach is incomplete without some form of beach cover up – something floaty and fabulous to pull on over your swimsuit between sunbathing sessions. Hence for that ultimate chic glamorous, we feel you need some flowing kaftans that will instantly take you from the beach to the bar and make you look at feel fabulous.

This Summer we launched our range of Cruise/resort wear Niche by Nisha Vedhara for Newcastle fashion week 2013. Click here for the designers launch interview with Etc magazine<a title= The theme of the collection was “Beach to the Bar” the collection consisted of some fun accessorised bikinis and kaftans in flowing fabrics like georgette, silk chiffon, colourful prints, beaded necklines, tassel etc. We are so proud to share that the collection was hugely appreciated and has been extremely popular 🙂 Click here for some more pictures from the launch event.

Present in every fashionable girls beach bag, the kaftan is quickly overtaking the sarong this summer as the perfect way to cover up on the beach. Traditionally, a full length and voluminous silhouette is best but new variants on the kaftan include shorter, straighter shapes, billowing sleeves and plunging, embellished necklines. Adapt your cover up from day to night by adding some clever accessories – wear a wide belt pulling the kaftan in at the waist for a sexy hourglass style or pull on some shimmering metallic sandals or wedges for a chic evening look.

Here is a glimpse of our collections of silk kaftans that will make you look and feel amazing, to take you from daytime to evening in a matter of seconds. The collection is available for purchase at the Love Niche studio

This week’s styling tip!

Image (7)

Ever feel stuck in a rut when it comes to colour? Maybe it’s because you don’t know what to put with what or sometimes wearing a bright, bold or different colour feels too overwhelming for you and as if you’ll draw too much attention to yourself. We suggest you start by introducing colour through adding subtle hints. Either through Accessories- like a handbag, shoes, sunglasses, a bright watch or a bold bra peek out or maybe a bright bold vest. Our pick of the week is a neon vest.

This Black drape top shown below is one of our Best Selling tops available for purchase at the Love Niche Studio. Here is how we added a subtle hint of colour to a basic Black and white outfit.  The neon just peeps through from the front cut and similarly from the back. For the ones who say we dont do colour, we suggest you try this, its subtle showcasing of colour but it can simply brighten up your day.nilpp

And for the ones who feel they can carry more colour  than that. Here is another pick. An Aztec print drape top with neon orange trim. Surely to grab attention and make heads turn 😉

Colour is fun embrace it and enjoy it. Here is a food of thought before we go…

Wednesdays styling tip.

Before you can go and pick your perfect summer bikini you need to know your body shape. There are many categories that you can fit into but the main four are; Athletic, Straight, Pear and Curvy.

  • Athletic – You tend to have broad shoulders, narrow hips and fairly muscular legs.
  • Straight – You have few curves, your waist and hips are pretty much the exact same measurements.
  • Pear – Your bottom half is wider and you are very petite on top with narrow shoulders.
  • Curvy – You are an hourglass shape and are in proportion, with your shoulders and hips measuring the same with a smaller waist, creating the curves.

photo 2 (7)

This emerald green bikini is ideal for an athletic figure, it will show off their perfectly toned torso and slight figure, yet creates a bust with the padded under-wire cups on the bikini top. The tassel detail sides on the bikini bottoms also make hips appear wider, giving the illusion of more curves. Pass on bandeau tops as they will squish you down and make you look too boyish, also avoid the boy shorts and shapeless tankinis! You’re lucky though as you can get away with bold printed bikinis! 

photo 3 (4)If you are a straight shape then this yellow ruffled bikini would be ideal. The embellished ruffled bikini top fills out the bust area giving the impression of bigger boobs. The tie sides are also good for your shape giving the illusion of more curves. Avoid bandeau tops with no neck straps and boy shorts! You and athletic shapes can also carry off bold bright prints effortlessly!

photo 4 (1)If you are a pear shape, then you are one of the only shapes that can pull of the bandeau bikini top! The bandeau makes your bust look wider giving the impression that you are more hourglass than pear. The detailing on this bikini draws your eye up towards your bust and away from your wider hips. The solid colour minimizes your bigger bottom half and slims you down. When buying your bikini make sure you don’t buy bottoms with a bold print, try and keep to solid colours.

photo 1 (6)The high waisted bikini is the original pinup style, and has be reinvented for 2013 with lots of styles available. The pinup style is hourglass, and a high waisted bikini accentuates the curves of an hourglass figure. The high leg bottom gives you longer legs and the ruffles on this bottom will secure your stomach if that is a problem area. The bikini top is a simple bandeau halter neck which will secure your bust. But with an hourglass shape make sure you buy in solid colours or very small print otherwise it will distort your proportions!
