First we have this lightweight cotton twin set, perfect for summer, white is a must have colour during hotter months and the beautiful striped colour block in neutral tones is bang on trend, especially with the golden metallic tone. photo 1 (47)Yellow lime is a big colour this season, we have these gorgeous fine knits in the studio in either the vest (left) or cardigan (right). Metallic stitching and stud details on the vest top.

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?

OOTD; Summer Vibes

20130703-183951.jpg

 

With summer slowly fading away we are desperately trying to keep it here for as long as we can! Today’s look has definitely got those relaxed casual summer vibes, double denim, pop of colour, cool light fabrics layered!

Double denim is mostly a summer trend, and can only really be pulled off if the denim is broken up by another colour, so this Love Niche white twin set is perfect, its lightweight with gorgeous embroidery and the ideal garment for adding layers and texture to an outfit. As always a girl needs her bling, layering bracelets is another way to add dimensions to an outfit!

The neon shoes (major trend!) and the bright pink bag add that pop of colour which is needed in this outfit to stop it from being boring, clashing the two colours is daring, but it works with this look!

What do you think of this summer look?

A lot of people have a fear of maxi dresses and skirts, and you really shouldn’t! They are extremely flattering, they lengthen and slim, and who doesn’t want to look taller and slimmer!! Also a lot of petite women think that maxi garments aren’t appropriate for them, but you couldn’t be more wrong.

Here at Love Niche, we have a gorgeous range of maxi dresses, in all cuts, shapes, sizes and prints! Below are some examples of our different styles.

First up we have this gorgeous monochrome printed maxi, with ruffle detailing around the neck, very flattering on a smaller bust especially. The Made from beautiful light fabric, it is the perfect holiday evening maxi, as it cool and bang on trend!

It has a very flattering knot tie at the waist to skim over the stomach (perfect if your stomach is a “problem” area ladies!) photo 3 (9)Close up of the neon colour in the print, again another beautiful maxi that would be ideal for going away on holiday, also gorgeous for a night out with the girls.photo 4 (6)This white cotton strapless maxi is a fave of ours, it was a late summer arrival and is the most gorgeous cover up for holiday either going from the beach to the bar or wandering around markets shopping.photo (17)

Love Niche London.

Love Niche London is the sister brand to Love Niche. We are now in India (so exciting!!) to show the Love Niche London collection and will be holding our much awaited exclusive Trunk Show in Punjab and Delhi. So we thought we would give you a sneak peek at some of the pieces that are part of the collection, and how we have styled them! photo 1-2 Monochrome; A huge trend this season! These amazing striped jeggings go perfectly with this green cowl neck blouse, to add a pop of colour. We styled this look with Outhouse jewellery and Love Niche bag also in green with clashing harlequin monochrome sequin print, both accessories available from the Love Niche London studio! photo 1 Classic LBD (Little Black Dress); The classic LBD should feature in every woman’s wardrobe, its a classic after all! This lbd however is a little bit different, it is jersey fabric with a knot at the waist to give a jagged hem at the front and make the back dipped. We have added an amazing Outhouse Necklace which is like a thick gold chain collar, with a large lion head central. We also added this beautiful box clutch with neon beads and and stones. photo 2-1 Orange; Every summer orange should come out in your wardrobe, its a staple summer colour! We love this Love Niche London jersey top, it has a beautiful print with carriages, ropes and jewels. To keep the top the statement piece in the look we have paired it with skinny black trousers with a cream stripe down the outer leg. Outhouse again featured in this look with this amazing spike, jewel and lion head necklace, and the jeweled cuff which compliments the colours on the top. photo 2-2 Clashing prints; Again another major trend is clashing prints, we love these nautical feel striped shorts teamed with this beautiful chiffon printed blouse! Teamed with this clutch in a deep coral with gold details, this is the perfect summer look! We also think that some statement earrings would look amazing with this outfit. photo 2 Edgy chic; We love this floral flocked monochrome skater style dress, but worn alone it could be too sickly sweet so to give it an edge we have added this amazingly soft italian leather jacket (available from Love niche Studio) We accessories with a clashing print and colour bag for a pop of colour and these incredible outhouse earrings with tusk detail (we LOVE them!) photo 3-1 Prim and proper revamped; The pencil skirt is killing it this season and it looks amazing on everybody (super flattering!)  to keep this look chic we have gone with a monochrome spotted cowl neck blouse, this looks very classic. To revamp a classic look we have added this box clutch again but in a daring pink and added a statement outhouse necklace.       photo 3-2 Ombre maxi skirt; Ombre is one of our favourite trends this season and we are in love with  this ombre maxi skirt is, its a chiffon fabric so it looks amazing when worn and floats when you walk! Teamed with this sequin tee we think it looks fab! These matching dangle earrings and cuff with neon beads (both outhouse) look beautiful with this look, the neon beads add an extra subtle dimension of colour.photo 4-1

The printed tee; The printed tee is basic in everyones wardrobe, this love niche london one however is in a gorgeous chiffon shirt style, embellished with jewels and has a very asian feel with the Buddha print and we all know oriental asian influence is massive this summer! (we LOVE this tee!!) To dress this tee up we wanted to make the red details pop so we teamed with a cherry red pencil skirt and gold platform stilettos to go from day to night. To put this look on another level we recommend adding a statement piece such as a gold jeweled cuff, or some amazing bling earrings.

Last but not least, Stripes; This beautiful chiffon blouse in monochrome stripes is one of our favourite pieces from the collection and it comes with this cute gold tassel belt detail around the waist. To keep the blouse the focal point we have just gone for an understated pencil skirt as it is a classic item. For accessories we have gone for striped again but this time in the form of this beautiful multi colour woven fabric clutch bag. The earrings complete this look.

All accessories in these images/looks are available from the Love Niche Studio!

As the weather is gradually getting better and the sun is trying to break through all the clouds, we have been excitedly planning our spring/summer13 wardrobes at Love Niche by lusting over all the latest trends! This season has so much to offer, with so many eclectic styles for everybody’s tastes.

First off colour. It is a major trend in itself this season, think everything from Macaroon pastels in baby pinks and blues, lemon yellows and pale greens. To fluorescent hues of neon in fuchsia, grass green, red, cobalt blue, canary yellow and bright burnt orange. Even though all of these colours are huge this s/s, don’t forget that every ladies favourite colour combo of black and white is still in style with monochrome dazzling on the runway! Looking for some outfit inspiration on how to wear colour or monochrome check out some of our outfit posts!

Patterns are covering the runway this season in all different ways! We have spotted checks (which have made a HUGE comeback this year!!) stripes, Spirographic prints, spots, bows, Asian influence with oriental prints and lots of floral designs from printed fabric to 3d applique flowers in daises, poppies and luscious roses. Exotic animal prints have also been heavily used by designers this year, snake skin, cheetah, leopard are just to name a few. Love Niche tip; Don’t be afraid to clash your prints/patterns, make yourself stand out from the crowd and be adventurous, fashion is only what you make of it!

Silhouettes and shape is a key factor to every season, this year silhouettes are heavenly influenced by the 60’s, from feminine lines of tailored ladylike chic or menswear inspired Avant garde ensembles. On offer are Bermuda shorts, tuxedo, slouchy box shaped suits, bell bottoms. Or If you are the daring sort, why not try a cropped bandeau top showing off your bare midriff for a full on peekaboo effect. However ladies the MUST HAVE item which is suited for most, is the Precious Pencil skirt. They are versatile and a staple for every season. They can be classy and sophisticated, demure to sexy, ladylike to flirty with thigh high slits or even more seductive with double slits, take your pick!

Texture – Say goodbye to shiny disco balls and say hello to high shine. Iridescence sheen, metallic, lustrous foils and holographic will make any outfit radiant and make a gleaming impact. On the contrary featherweight sheer materials, like chiffon organza mousse-line & lace will bring lot of freshness & fun to any spring wardrobe. Also a big hit this season are silky satins that contract beautifully with sheer fabrics. Denim, with every s/s is huge; jeans, shorts, skirts, dresses, jackets but get it right this spring/summer and wear your denim in dungaree form, yes you heard us right, dungarees are here to stay and we are proud to say we love them and you should too! (embrace your inner 90’s child!)
