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 – 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 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.
