Make a Statement this New Years Eve

Want to stand out at that New Year’s Eve party? The right outfit is the way to do it.


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!


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.

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!




Black jumpsuit Styled with a pop of colour


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!

Shimmer Jacket

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.

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

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.

We closed the evening with the ladies rushing to our pop-up shop to make some purchases. We were left overwhelmed by the interest the women of Newcastle showed in our brand new collection. Overall it was a fantastic night leaving a lot of smiles on many beautiful faces.

Styling Lace

For a long time lace had been associated with evening dresses and cocktail attire but it can also be worn in a relaxed day time fashion by contrasting fabrics and giving it a more modern approach. Of course we still love the elegance of delicate lace gowns, they project sophistication but we are also fans of the lace back tees shown below.

Seen on some of the largest fashion house shows this season lace is here to stay this season but don’t assume all lace has to be black. We show you 3 ways to wear lace, from day to night and also work.

Day – We’ve teamed this printed tee and lace panel back with a pair of slim fit white trousers for a slight tailored casual look. If you want to show a little more skin dare to bear with the full lace back tee.



Night – This is where you can go all out with lace, from sheer to sequinned or coloured it’s all perfectly acceptable and these Spring apricot and blush shades create a soft romantic look opposed to the dramatic feel of blacks and deep blue.

Work – Now this can be a little more tricky to style for work as you don’t want to appear too dressed up, so how do you get that happy medium?

The easiest solution is lace panels! We love this dress available in navy too which has the slim panels of sheer lace on the arms, whilst the rest of the dress is plain and form fitting.

Get The Look: Fresh Florals

Here at Love Niche we like to keep up with the new trends and bring you the latest in new season fashion. We have loads of new items in at the moment so will be showing you the best picks and how to style them.

As the weather has turned towards Spring the bloom prints are out and this stunning dress is perfect. You can see our previous post on the runway prints here

_DSC8542-copy _DSC8548-copy

This could be worn day or night with a quick change of heels and accessories, the print is bold so try not to add too much fuss to the outfit or your in danger of fashion overkill. For day we would wear it a little more casual yet polished with the pastel pink trench in lightweight fabric. This jacket is brand new in the studio so snap it up!


For evening try some heels and an oversized clutch, again keep it simple and opt for a pendant necklace or gold cuff.

How would you wear florals?

This week’s styling tip.

IMG_0335This is our first post in our body shape series; the pear shape. The pear shape is known as the classic womanly figure, however we don’t like to use the term pear shape as such. Pear shapes, as all other body shapes come in all sizes, so to stop confusion we like to class the ‘pear’ as a ‘triangle’ (nobody ever really enjoyed being compared to a fruit did they?)

The triangle body type is generally classified as having slender narrow shoulders, typically have a great bust and a slim waist (lucky you!) with your hips, bum and thighs being your largest part of your body.

It can be confusing dressing/styling a triangle shape as the contrast between the narrow shoulders and wider hip can be a difficult task to dress, however with our tips it should become easy and enjoyable.

As always with every season there are many styles and shapes which are the new must have shape to have in your wardrobe, however you need to evaluate your body and ask yourself “will i actually suit this trouser or skirt?” And most of all be honest with yourself! A triangle should try and avoid a straight up and down trouser that just falls from the hip as we feel this will just make your bottom half look bigger than it actually is (even if you are a very slim triangle!) So instead try and find a trouser like a peg leg trouser as an alternative to the skinny jean which will skim over your hips, wont cling to your legs but tapers in at your ankle which is the slimmest part of your leg, also try the combination of a bootcut flare jean with a wedge heel, this look is ideal for you as it makes your thighs look slimmer as the flared bottom is balancing your bottom half out, this means that your body will then look proportionate! For an evening or work trouser you should always go tailored and in a dark colour, and your jeans should never been a light wash, stick to stonewash and indigo jeans.

When trying to find the perfect dress, especially for the glitz and glamour season coming up, we recommend you try and find a dress which has shoulder pads, embellishment across the shoulders, or an off the shoulder dress. The bare shoulder look is huge this season is the perfect trend for you triangle ladies, embrace it!

Below we have chosen 3 of our favourite dresses we currently have in the studio to show you how we would dress a triangle shape.

First is this gorgeous striking emerald structured dress. This dress is a great dress for a triangle, as it has exaggerated shoulders to balance out your wider hips, the v neck is flattering for your bust and the belt is ideal as it shows off your slim waist by drawing the eye in. It skims over your larger hips and thighs instead of clinging which is another bonus. Teamed with some court shoes in a nude to elongate your legs and some statement earrings you are going to be turning heads.Green dress 1Green dress 2Our second look is a bit more daring, if you like bold prints and like to make a statement then this is the perfect dress for you! The mixed mono print of leopard and houndstooth is bang on trend this season, with both prints being a must have! This dress is extremely flattering even though it is a jersey fabric, with the wrap style knot detail it skims over stomach and hips. The v neckline is great again for the triangle as it balances out the narrow shoulders, and the buckle detail on the dress again draws your eye in to your small waist. Animal dress 1animal dress 2Our final look is a a more classic look, but with a twist (as always!) this faux matte leather dress is stunning in charcoal rather than black. Its a slim fit dress yet skims over the hips and doesn’t cling! The secret shoulder pads balance out the hips and the deep v neckline again is very flattering. The gunmetal studded waist detail acts like a belt and cinches in the middle to show off that slender waist. photo 3 (17)

This weeks styling tip.

photo 2 (34)The pastel trend has been big all year, so Autumn/Winter is no exception, except you swap your pastel cami tops for chunky knit pastel jumpers and your short shorts for thick woolen tights.

Every season we create mood boards to help us focus on the trends of the moment, so to help inspire you too here is one of our mood boards for the pastel trend!photo 1 (32)We have decided to show you some of our pastel outfits which are our in the studio at the moment , two day outfits by Love Niche and two evening outfits which are Niche by Nisha Vedhara.

First up is a look using one of our favourite fur gilets! A tip would be when wearing pastels its good to use another bold colour to break up the look to stop it from being too washed out, if you wear pastels wrong they can drain you! So we have layered the gilet over the long sleeved plum top, by keeping it in the same color family we have added extra warmth to this look. Wearing white trousers with this outfit keeps it looking light and fresh, you could also wear another colour but try to avoid black as it would darken this look too much. photo 3 (26)photo 2 (35)Our second day look is more of an autumn look, with a simple pastel jumper with some gorgeous bead work across the shoulders. To keep the autumnal chill away we would suggest styling with a scarf which is again in the same colour family. This scarf is one of our favourites as it has beautiful golden shimmer lace detail. We think this is the perfect outfit for a “ladies who lunch” or afternoon tea date. photo 5 (14)photo 4 (22)Our first evening look is one from the Niche by Nisha Vedhara collection. The perfect dress for aumtumn/winter. With the long sleeves, the layered top that gives off 1920’s vibe, we are in love with this dress! The golden lace shimmer top adds that extra wow factor. Paired with the gold clutch with oversized jewels, a killer heel and you’re set for the night. This is the ultimate christmas dress! photo 3 (27)photo 4 (23)Our final look, which was part of our fashion show earlier this year, is another Niche By Nisha Vedhara dress. This dress is ideal for the festive period, with swarovski crystals, satin bow and lace sleeves, how can you not love this dress?! The beautiful model Lucy wore hers with red stiletto heels for a pop of colour.

The anticipation of autumn’s arrival is killing us here at Love Niche! It is still too warm to indulge in chunky knits, leather trousers, fur gilets and woolen hats, we never thought we would say this but we are bored of summer…!

So to get you all a bit more excited about your a/w13 wardrobe this post is about our new prints that have landed for the coming season. Everybody loves a good print, so we’ve chosen two of our favourite printed dresses which show some of this seasons must have prints; Aztec, dogtooth/animal print.

Our first look is something with a bit of glitz and glam! It’s going to be Christmas season soon, when everyone gets out their sequins and sparkle. This dress is perfect for this season, with the Aztec sequin skirt, it’s not too much on the bling side, as it has been balanced out with the taupe on top. This dress is extremely flattering, as it skims over all the lumps and bumps! Team this look with some killer heels, a clutch and a red lip to turn some heads!photo 1 (30)photo 2 (32)Next, we have this gorgeous mixed print jersey wrap dress; clashing prints at its best! We love the mix of dogtooth and leopard print! The wrap on this dress makes it very flattering for a lady with a bigger bust, and the knot detail with the buckle at the waist makes sure the dress skims over the stomach, making you look slim. You can easily dress this up for an evening with some stiletto heels or down for work with some thick black tights!photo 3 (24)photo 4 (20)

Tk-Maxx launch Newcastle.



Last week we attended the launch of a new fresh store in Newcastle city Centre…TK Maxx! We headed down for 10am after the morning rush, unfortunately we were too late to be gifted with one of the 500 £10 gift cards! Music, sweets and friendly staff greeted us on entering the store, as soon as we arrived we realised this was not just any ordinary TK Maxx.

To most people as soon as they think TK Maxx words such as bargain, hunting, deals, on trend, discount and designers come to mind! However for a few its not a very enjoyable experience (especially for men) they don’t get the thrill from rummaging through the endless rails trying to find that special item! We asked a few men their thoughts and opinions on TK Maxx and the overwhelming response was that they found it “a waste of time trailing through rails” (Nahhh!!) “it’s just a big jumble sale” “too hard to find something in my size”

However if they ventured into the fresh Newcastle store we think they would be surprised by how easy it is to now find that special bargain they crave! Sections were clearly marked and organised into sizes.1 tk maxx

In our eyes we found the new store a haven for all the beautiful things we love, imagine shoes, bags, endless rails of gorgeous clothes and an impressive home accessories section..heavenly! For us it is an absolute delight searching high and low through the rails, because when we do find that big designer item we feel a sense of achievement, its exciting! Then when we look again and its our size and at an affordable price (Voila!! ) we just want to jump up and down, its been our lucky day.

This is exactly how we felt when we were at the TK Maxx store, which was inaugurated by gorgeous Donna Air who is a tv presenter and actress, Newcastle is actually her home town.

The best part about the fresh Newcastle store was the ‘Gold Label’ collection. With an average ticket price of £100 each item features a distinctive black and gold ‘Gold Label’ swing tag with a very interesting message its says ” Very Important Purchase” and it surely is. The Gold Label collection is available in only 22 stores in the Uk. At the Monument Mall Tk Maxx it was handily at the top of the escalator upon entering. We were in awe of the collection they had, and we found ourselves being held there for over an hour alone! This little zone of temptation had designers such as ; Dolce & Gabbana, Viktor and Rolf, Red Valentino, See by Chloe, Lanvin, Emilio Pucci and Versace to name but a few.hy

So naturally we raided the rails to find our favourite pieces and decided it would be fun to pick out some key hot pieces that we ‘Need to have’ or ‘Want to have’ however after trying on some items we realised they didn’t fit in either of the two categories, so instead they moved to a new category of ‘Have to Have’ and ‘Can’t live without!'(pheww!!)

These are our clicks from our little fashion show we performed in the changing rooms 🙂

First up is this fabulous versatile Emilio Pucci blouse, as soon as we saw this we knew this was going to be a ‘Have to Have’ key item! Everything from the monochrome print (very on trend this season ladies!) to the fit of this blouse is so flattering, this is how we styled it; We paired it first of all with a fitted panelled pencil skirt, secondly we teamed it to go under the figure hugging Nanette Lepore dress. The Pucci blouse was affordable at only £169.99 from £850, and we found it was the perfect length to wear just as a cover up over a bikini, perfect for the up and coming holiday season! The Nanette Lepore dress was a bargain at £79.99!

pucci top



Another one of our many favourites was this elegant Red by Valentino mac. One of the most vital pieces for the British weather A Mac is an indispensable piece in any wardrobe. It was unfortunately too big for both of us, but we still gave it a try as we couldn’t resist trying it on and thought we should know how it feels before we can suggest it to someone who might fit in it. It was fabulous with the delicate lace insert and lace bow. A mac is an essential item that can be worn all year round with it being waterproof which is a key feature for us Brits! It is also light enough to be added just as an extra layer in those colder months. So we styled it over the Pucci blouse and Nanette Lepore dress as shown above, we found this look perfect for a late Spring/ early summer work wear outfit choice. The Valentino mac was an absolute steal at only £199.99! We were amazed at this price and would be very surprised if this was still up for grabs (we can only hope!)

valentino mac


Other favourites of ours included this gorgeous netted blouse by Dolce & Gabbana, and this lime green blouse by Lanvin ( Love Alber Elbaz) both styled with the panelled monochrome pencil skirt. The D&G blouse was one of our more expensive picks being sold for £269.99, however it was originally £1,810 so in our eyes that is such a bargain! The Lanvin blouse is the perfect piece for adding a pop of colour into a dull spring wardrobe and can be styled in many ways, this pencil skirt just being one. It was priced at £199.99 down from £1,000, which is again a rather large price down, We would class these blouses as investment pieces, as they are still quite expensive but they will serve you well!


If you are unable to go into a Tk Maxx store, don’t worry! They have a great online store click here to browse the ‘Gold Label’ range if you cant resist the temptation anymore.

Happy Shopping!!
