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.

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.

This weeks style tip!

photo 1It’s still holiday season and in the studio we always get asked how to create an evening capsule wardrobe while away on holiday, so here are some of our favourite looks we have pulled together.

Look 1; We have the Love Niche best sellerthe drape dipped hem blouse, its lightweight, comes in many colours, prints and can be worn lots of ways as it is easy to style. We have paired it with this gorgeous zebra print skirt, a simple pendant necklace and a sequin bag for a bit of glitz and glam!

photo 3photo 1Look 2 again with the drape top, this time we have styled it with must have killer white jeans! White jeans are a holiday must have, they have to be lightweight and fit perfectly. Jeans are the most versatile item anybody can have in their wardrobe, and white jeans are a MUST for any holiday! Again we accessorised with the simple black pendant necklace, but this time we added another colour with the blue chillis bag.

photo 3photo 2Look 3 is one of our favourite looks. Who said kaftans were just for daytime…we love layering open kaftans for an evening when it can get a little bit chilly! We have turned up the jeans to give this look a more relaxed feel, a simple white vest, the sheer bold print kaftan is quite boho chic, so we layered some Love Niche necklaces to style up this look. Paired with some killer wedges this is a fab evening look if you like to try something new, this is definitely a head turner.

photo 3photo 2Look 4, and the last look with white jeans. This is a classic take on the white jeans, paired with a split sleeve black top for a monochrome look. To stop this look being too conservative we accessorised with one of our statement Outhouse necklaces which is neon green to add a pop of colour, and the sequin bag again for a bit more glam!

photo 4photo 2The final look is another simple yet eye catching outfit! We have paired the zebra print skirt from look 1 and the black split sleeve top from look 4. We have let the skirt do all the talking and kept it simple, to make this look a bit edgy we added the amazing outhouse lion head collar style necklace (one of our faves!!!) To finish off this look just add some killer heels, tousled beach wavy hair and a pop of colour through lipstick!

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

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.

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!
