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!

Iridescent

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.

Jumpsuit

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!

Golden

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!

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 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.

SS14 capsule wardrobe must haves.

With the weather greatly improving, we are packing away our winter clothes and dusting off our t-shirts and shorts ready for the summer months. So we thought it was time for a post about must haves for your SS14 capsule wardrobe.

Prints – Prints are a major trend this season, with everything from florals, spots, stripes, animal prints and novelty prints such as digital vintage cars and bicycles. In the studio, we are especially loving printed trousers, our favourite are these stunning snake print in blue. These trousers are definitely a statement piece, but they are extremely versatile and you can style them with many items! We have a gorgeous collection of printed trousers available in the studio, check out our website to see more of our collection. blue snake print trouser

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If printed trousers are not for you, we also have a stunning collection of silk digital printed tops, in a range of colours, prints, and sleeve length. Our must have, however, is the gorgeous roses printed top with lace sleeves and back, this top is bang on trend with the floral print and the see through lace, we love this top for a casual day look, teamed with light wash jeans, or shorts during hotter months, and a chunky wedge heel! DSC_8340-copy DSC_8343-copyFor a statement evening dress, this Dolce & Gabbana inspired roman coin dress in emerald green is definitely a head turner! Keep hair either big and bouncy or in a top knot with a contrasting deep red lip for extra wow factor! dolce & gabanna inspired dressPastels – Pastels are huge this season, in every hue from candyfloss pink and baby blues to light tans and beige to all white looks. Pastels are one of our favourite trends here at the Love Niche studio, our favourite colour being light pink shades. We adore these lightweight soft suede material jackets with the waterfall front, they are very flattering and versatile. You can dress them up for an evening or a chic daytime look with ease. We love this all pink look for a late afternoon with girlfriends, the printed trousers are extremely flattering with a higher waist fit, the light pink vest keeps the look softer instead of bright white. Team with tan or nude accessories to keep the look fresh, try to avoid black as it can be too harsh against pastel outfits. DSC_8218-copy

Leather – During hotter months you wouldn’t expect leather to be a key texture to your capsule wardrobe, but we love it! When we say leather, we don’t mean heavy leather biker jackets. Leather has had a feminine overhaul, with lightweight leather jackets with waterfall fronts, or in pastel shades! In the studio this season we have a small collection of summer leather, including a stunning two piece pencil skirt (faux leather) and real soft leather waterfall front jacket with silver beading details. Team this two piece with a plain white vest to keep it fresh and light for spring, the perfect work wear outfit. You can also team this jacket with your classic little black dress for an evening look or white skinny jeans for a daytime look!biege ensombleDropped waist – The dropped waist style skirts and dresses are making a big come back this season, and we love this trend, it is very 1920’s chic! Our Love Niche dropped waist skirt has been very popular so far this season, it comes in either black or cherry red. It is very flattering as it hugs your curves in the right places. We love this skirt teamed with a blouse and one of our statement leather waist belts which cinch in your waist perfectly. These skirts are definitely going to be a big hit this season! peach top with black peplum skirt

Trend of the week – SS14 textures

Textures are a big deal when styling during all seasons. A lot of people associate textures mainly with A/W for layering, however textures during S/S months are a MUST. S/S14 is a season full of texture, some you would expect, such as; lace, chiffons, lightweight linens and cottons. But this season we have also been introduced to Summer leather and lots of heavy embellishment which are definitely heavier textures.

LACE – This SS14 lace has been a favourite of many designers, varying from all over lace to slight feminine lace trims and details. We are big fans of lace here at Love Niche too, so this trend is a favourite of ours. Burberry has shown lace is every way, from all over pastel blue and lilac delicate lace dresses to sheer candyfloss pink lace pencil skirts to lace blouses. Tom Ford showed a daring lace ensemble with black barely there lace in a 3 piece! Dolce & Gabbana wowed us with their SS14 collection, the black lace dress is a winner in our eyes with statement pleated sleeves teamed with high-waist hot pants and bandeau.ss14 lace

SHEER – Sheer fabrics and S/S are a must have combination, and this year it is no exception! Sheer has been shown in abundance this season, everything from silks, chiffons and gauze. Vera Wang layered her colourful sheer fabric looks for a summer chic look. J.W Anderson created some interesting folk style sheer maxi dresses with elasticated bands. For an evening look take inspiration from Tom Ford with stunning sheer length dresses.SS14 Sheer

 

LEATHER – An unusual texture for S/S as we generally associate leather with A/W and keeping warm. However leather has had a S/S overhaul, every thing from leather trousers, maxi skirts, jackets and dresses! Tom Ford is one of our favourite collection for leather inspiration this season, we are loving the white biker jackets and tan leather dresses! J.W Anderson has shown leather maxi skirts with sheer crop tops, texture at its best! We are also loving Dolce & Gabbana’s deep maroon leather dress with boxy 3/4 sleeves. For safari chic we love the mustard yellow croc effect leather tie skirt from Hermès. SS14 Leather

JEWELS AND METALLICS – The glitz and glam heavily jewelled looks are normally a favourite during A/W running up to the festive season, however this S/S just had a bling makeover! We have seen crystal and sequin covered dresses, heavily embellished pencil skirts, crystal and beaded trousers and jewel mosaic two pieces! Burberry has again mastered the embellished crystal look with jewelled skirts and pastel tees. Lanvin is all about the metallic fabric this season with a stunning collection. We love Isabel Marant’s fabulous jewelled trousers, perfect for an edgy summer evening outfit!SS14 Jewels and metallicsImage credit to style.com

SS14 earrings!

The new season is gradually starting to come in to the Love Niche Studio! Since the weather is still pretty gloomy and we can’t don our favourite S/S14 trends just yet, we have been looking for a way to introduce a bit of summer into our daily looks. Luckily, the new collection of Love Niche earrings has arrived! Everything from nude pastels, coloured stones, crystals and pearls!

We love these cream and gold disc earrings with pearl details. They could easily be worn day to night, for any occasion! For an evening look sleek your hair back off your face and let the earrings do the talking, wear with your favourite LBD and killer heels, add a red lip for extra wow factor! photo 1 (18)These stunning crescent moon earrings are perfect for an evening look! They will definitely make heads turn with the crystal and pearl details.  Either wear with a gorgeous dress or even try with leather trousers and a deep lipstick for more of an edgy glam look!photo 3 (13)We can’t get enough of these round turquoise stone earrings! They are ideal for adding a pop of colour during these gloomy months and will look stunning during summer with an all white look! To make the earrings pop even more try and wear with a clutch or heels the same colour. photo 2 (20)These unusual drop statement earrings are one of a kind. The coral stone is a gorgeous summer colour and looks stunning against the gold. The clear crystals give these earrings that extra wow factor and will definitely stand out against your LBD for an evening look! Again we would suggest to wear coral in other accessories such as your clutch, heels or a coral lipstick. You could also team with a coral blazer over your LBD to make the coral stone on the earrings pop and not get lost. photo 4 (10)

Trend of the week- SS14 silhouettes and shapes

Spring/Summer 14 is a season of beautiful shapes and silhouettes, in our opinion it is going to be a very feminine season ahead, and we love it! We have taken inspirations from many designers, not only using girly colours in our up and coming SS14 collection but also the cuts and shapes. We are loving the contrast between the feminine full skirted silhouette with cinched waist and the masculine tailoring.

DROPPED WAIST – The dropped waist dress has been quite a big hit on the runway this coming season, however it is going to be a “marmite” trend, you will either love it or hate it! Some designers have revamped the 1920’s style flapper dress such as Calvin Klein and Lanvin. Victoria Beckham has designed a gorgeous collection full of dropped hemline and cinched belted waist, very feminine chic! Roberto Cavalli has incorporated the dropped waist into the collection with stunning crochet lace maxi dresses, we adore! SS14 Dropped waist

FULL SKIRT – The full skirt is the most feminine shape of the season, this hourglass look is a must have of the season! The full skirt doesn’t have to just be below the knee, you can take inspiration from Saint Laurent and go for a fuller mini length dress! We are loving Peter Pilotto full skirted looks, with a slight dipped hem, these looks also tie into the boxy trend which is major this season with the stiff boxy fabricated crop tops. Christian Dior has designed gorgeous eye catching full skirted dresses. SS14 Full skirts

TAILORING – Tailoring is a strong look this season, but don’t just think stiff trouser suits! Tailoring is immaculately shown at Saint Laurent and Chanel with boyfriend coats and blazers teamed with skinny cut trousers. Peter Pilotto has shown a different side to tailoring with boxy overcoats and ruffled tailored skirts. Bermuda shorts are a huge trend this season, with many designers showing them in fashion week, we love Victoria Beckham’s take on Bermuda shorts. The Bermuda shorts also fit in with the relaxed tailored safari look which will be a must have style this SS14. SS14 tailoring

THE MAXI Every spring/summer the maxi makes a return on the runways, this season is no exception! Maxi skirts or maxi dresses, we urge you to introduce the maxi into your wardrobe this summer, we will be investing in bright bold printed maxi skirts for sure! Chanel showed us maxi skirts in crisp white and off the shoulder maxi dresses in tweed like fabric. We love Lanvin’s printed flowing maxi dress with thigh split. Christian Dior showed elegant pastel  high waist maxi skirts. SS14 MAXI

Trend of the week – Colours for SS14

With production well under way for the Love Niche SS14 collection it has made us excited for a new season! So we thought we would share a trend each week, to give you all a Love Niche crash course into the coming season!

So for our first post about the SS14 trends, we thought we would give you a glimpse into our must have colours for this season! Spring/Summer in our eyes is all about colour, whether it be a bright acidic hue or a toned down fondant pastel, we just love colour! However there are a few certain colours that we think are must haves which should be injected into every wardrobe! Adding colour into your wardrobe even by purchasing a coloured tee or some coloured accessories/jewellery is the most simple and cost effective way of keeping on top of the new season.

RED has been a massive hit this SS on the runway, and we love it! There has been every shade shown from cherry reds, to darker richer shades. When wearing red we would always keep accessories either nude, tan or black to keep your look classic. reds ss14

PINK is one of our favourite SS colours, its very feminine and goes with everything! This season you will see all tones from acid pinks, hot pinks, magenta all the way to pastel shades like candy floss pinks. If you arent a fan of pink, you can still indulge in this trend even by treating yourself to a new pink lippy!pinks ss14 trend

YELLOW, the notoriously difficult colour to wear, has made a big comeback this season. We can’t seem to get enough of this sunshine shade, you will see a lot of yellow this coming season from lemon, buttercup, sherbet and mustard! Even if you think you cant pull of yellow, we urge you to give it a go and find a shade which suits you! Try teaming a yellow fine knit layered with a white shirt underneath and dark wash skinny jeans for a casual chic look. After all it will definitely give your wardrobe a summery feeling! yellow ss14

GREEN, is not a usual summer colour hit, but we are loving it this season! Our favourite shade is mint green, and the brighter bold tones (Peter Pilotto, last 2 images, is one of our favourite collections this season!!) green hues ss14

BLUES. Blue definitely made a big appearance on the runway this season, these bright bold shades from electric blues to sky blues are going to brighten up any wardrobe this season. If you aren’t a fan of bright colours, then we would suggest adding some soft pastel blues into your wardrobe from duck egg blue to powder blues. To make the perfect summer combo add some crisp white to your blue! To inject blue into your Spring look without having to break the bank we suggest a subtle hint by painting your nails your favourite shade! powerful blue hues ss14mint-powder blue hues ss14

This week’s style tip.

photo (26)The Apple body type is most misconstrued shape with a lot of people thinking that it is the shape for a larger woman, this is so far from the truth! If you are an apple shape it means that you have a wider torso, therefor lacking a defined waist, you have broad shoulders, generally a fantastic bust, slim arms and legs and normally quite a flat bottom.

Now, to dress an apple shape it is pretty straight forward. You need to avoid billowing shapeless tops with no structure as they will make you look larger than you are as it has no waist definition, especially paired with black leggings as they make your slim legs look even slimmer! You should go for tops which have a built in waist for example try an empire line style as this will pull you in under your bust and skim over your stomach, a very flattering style for you! Also try a wrap top as they also give you definition. However if you were to wear a shapeless top then just pair it with a skinny belt so it will cinch in your waist giving your body shape. Remember you should try to go for longer tops which stop after your hips, tunics should be a staple in your wardrobe.

Necklines in dresses and tops; go for v-necks to show off some of that fantastic cleavage, plunging necklines, strapless or scoop necks also look good on you. Please avoid high necklines such as polo necks, off the shoulder, boat neck and halter necks are also not the greatest style for you. These will all make you shoulders look too broad, something you want to avoid.

Trousers and jeans look amazing on your with those fab pins! But avoid skinny black jeans, it will only make your legs look too slim making your proportions off. Try a bootcut or flare jean to balance out your shoulders. Straight leg trousers are always a winner too! To make your bottom look a bit fuller try going for jeans or trousers which have big pockets on the bum.

Now we have picked 3 looks for the studio for you to try. First up we have a work wear look. This look is perfect for autumn, the black oversized ‘coatigan’ is perfect for your shape as it still has structure, it is a longer style so it is an ideal length for you. The oversized collar creates a v slimming you middle. The white blouse looks great to create a monochrome look, again with a V-neck to flatter your bust. The trousers are slightly high waisted, which we recommend for your shape, they are slim leg but with the monochrome pattern they don’t make your legs look too slim. photo 1 (41)photo 2 (43)photo 3 (34)Being slightly top heavy you might feel like you can’t pull off a fur coat, however this ostrich feather coat is the ideal coat for you as it has a wide leather waistband to give your waist definition! It also has a V-neck so again this is very flattering for your shape. Teamed with slim leg black trousers this look is a winner for A/W! The dark blonde fur is also a fantastic colour this season. photo 4 (29)photo 5 (19)When picking an evening dress to wear we would recommend you picking mini or midi styles, to show off some leg! As these a/w months can get very cold so we have picked a midi to show you. This style is very flattering for you, it is fitted but not clingy and the black side panels give the illusion of an hourglass figure! The reptile print is a major trend this season also! The gold plate belt adds further waist definition. We have teamed it with one of our favourite fur pashminas and statement stud bag. photo 2 (45)photo 3 (36)
