This weeks styling tip.

photo (25)The inverted triangle is a very common body shape these days, with more and more woman developing this shape. If you think you’re an inverted triangle this is the checklist; broad shoulders, narrow hips, generally slender limbs, fantastic legs (jealous much?!) and usually have great boobs too, but sizes can vary.

You are typically a very easy body shape to dress, you just want to aim to balance your shoulders with your hips. Our guidelines will help you to establish what shapes and cuts flatter you the most this season. First up dresses, this season is all about the glitz and the glamour! When picking out a dress go for a shift, something A-line or something which has heavy embellishment on the skirt as this will draw attention to your lower half balancing out your shoulders. This might come as a surprise to you, but we also think you look flawless in strapless tops and dresses. Strapless/bare shoulders are bang on trend this season, so if you haven’t already, give it a go! When picking tops you must think about the neckline. If you have a small chest you can pull off a polo neck and also those risky plunging V-necks, however if you are gifted with a fuller bust try and avoid a polo neck as it just doesn’t flatter your shape, instead try a shortened V-neck, an open collared shirt, a cowl neck or something scooped. Wrap tops are also a winner as they create a V and flatter almost every shape, they are also extremely versatile tops, wardrobe basics in fact.

Trousers…well we are extremely jealous of those pins for a start, but you can pull off, literally, any trouser/jean! Boyfriend fit, boot cut, flare, combat, palazzo, turn up hems, peg trousers, culottes, and this season must have jean shape the “mom” jean! Skinny or straight leg jeans will also show off those amazing legs but try and go for jeans that have embellished pockets as they will make you look like you have a bit of a bigger bottom, to balance out your top half! Coloured jeans will also give the illusion of your being more hourglass.

When picking your winter coat try and pick a longerline coat or one that ends at the crotch. A belted coat or jacket is also very flattering as it gives you more structure and definition. Boyfriend blazers, in our eyes are not the most flattering option for you, try a more tailored blazer, which ends at the hipbone or crotch and make sure it has hip pockets to widen your narrow hips, also tapered at your waist to give you more definition.

Again we have chosen some looks to show you how to dress your shape for this season. We have an evening dress outfit, a day time jumper dress, and if you don’t fancy showing off your gorgeous legs then we have a jumpsuit which you would look flawless in too…

First up is the daytime look; the printed jumper dress. One of the main reasons why this will look so good on you is to do with the neckline; a cowl neck will always be a great choice for you! With it being a/w its sometimes difficult to find a nice daytime dress to wear, so this jumper dress is a perfect solution, very versatile and on trend can be worn day through to night. The length of this dress is also very flattering, and it is slightly A-line so will balance out your shoulders even more. The colour combo of cobalt and black is bang on trend. Shown here for an evening look, but through the day team with some luxurious tights and some heeled boots, to toughen this look up add a biker jacket. For even more definition you can add a belt to nip in your waist.fayth in love niche cowl neck jumper dressOur second look is an evening dress for this glitz and glam season; the aztec sequin dress. This dress is for you inverted triangles with a smaller bust (ideally) as the neckline is quite high for you ladies with bigger boobs and could essentially make your chest/shoulders look larger. This dress works really well for an inverted triangle as all the detail is in the skirt of the dress, so this draws the eye to your lower body, balancing out your proportions. With the elasticated waistband it draws the eye in giving you more definition, you could also add a subtle black skinny belt if you wanted further definition. The sequin details on the skirt make it a gorgeous dress for a Saturday night out with girlfriends or for your Christmas party (the holidays are approaching fast!) Team with a clutch, and killer platform heels, and a coloured lip for a pop of colour we would suggest a berry shade or classic red. fayth in love niche sequin aztec print dressOur last look is again versatile and could be worn day through to night; the colour block jumpsuit. The tailoring of this jumpsuit is gorgeous, it’s got a V-neck zip and for you smaller busted ladies you can have it plunging as far as you like…! The wide straps will break up your shoulders and the straight legged trouser will also balance out your proportions. This look can go from day to evening as the drawstring dropped waist keeps this jumpsuit looking quite relaxed and effortless. For evening team with killer heels, and match your clutch to your lipstick, we suggest a deep mulberry shade! carrie in love niche colour block jumpsuitWhich is your favourite look for the interverted triangle?!

OOTN; It’s a white out!

photo 3 (28)All white everything has been on trend all year, so this A/W is no exception! For these colder months a jumpsuit is the perfect option for evening attire. This tuxedo style jumpsuit, from the Love Niche London collection is tying in 3 major trends for this coming season;

  • All white
  • Masculine shapes/silhouettes
  • Deep ‘V’ necklines

Styled with a statement necklace, a reptile print clutch bag and golden sandal heels to add colour and glam. Hair kept in loose tousled curls keep this look from being too masculine, however you could also go for a slicked back high ponytail for extra wow factor!

Are you a fan of this 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!

Cannes, It’s a White Out!

photo 1 (2)Well last week was the uber stylish week of the Cannes Film Festival. Its renowned for being one of the most prestigious events of the year! Every year we are in awe of the gowns, so we have decided to share our best dressed with you! This spring/summer 2013 is huge for white, and we are BIG fans of all white everything! So this is our opinion on who we think has done white well (not in order).

photo 2 (2)First on our list is the absolutely stunning Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, she opted for all white Dior dress and white Louboutins. She looks glowing, the dress fits her like a dream, this is a very classic look and allows the dress to do the talking by keeping it basic.

photo 3 (2)Next up we have Nicole Kidman on the red carpet wearing a magnificent Valentino gown! This look is flawless, the gown is so beautiful with intricate lace detail and classic high neck. Nicole finished this look off perfectly with subtle red lip as the only accessory, we LOVE this look.photo 4

Carey Mulligan’s look has been hit and miss for some people, however we love her in this Vionnet dress. Monochrome is bang on trend this year, and we love the almost origami feel to this dress! Black sky scrapper heels complete this look, we think she looks hot!

Whenever you think of Emma Watson, you always think of the cliche ‘Girl next door’ but not anymore, gone are her Harry Potter days! She donned the most amazing Chanel column dress with black velvet bustier. She looked the epitome of elegance, chic and style.

Last, but by no means least, is Solange Knowles. She stepped out wearing a bright white Stephane Rolland 2013 jumpsuit, not a gown but none the less fabulous! She has absolutely nailed this look, we are in love with the immaculate tailoring and unusual conical detailing around the neckline and down the sleeves, teamed with her statement red lip and tan heels perfects this look, she looks fierce!
