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

Love Niche How To – Winter scarves!

photo 5 (3)‘Tis the season to get wrapped up, so we are going to show you briefly how to get wrapped up this season, Love Niche style

Scarves are a must have accessory during the AW months! However winter scarves can be quite difficult to get right and it can be hard to find a winter scarf that isn’t a chunky cable knit! In the studio we have an eclectic range of scarves, which are all very unique! They are versatile and you can generally wear them all year round! 

(We have kept the outfit simple and all black so that you can see the scarf and how it has been worn!)

The Knot – This wool scarf is actually a chic novelty! It has a large tartan tiger printed on it, so when wearing this scarf we like to show off the tiger head! The best way we have found to show of detail, yet keep warm is to knot the scarf! (This style works really well when worn under a coat) The tartan print is a must have print of AW. This is quite a casual scarf, so we would suggest teaming it with jeans, either a plain blouse or jumper (to let the scarf stand out), then layered with your winter coat or even a fur! photo 1 (15)The neck wrap/drape – The Love Niche silk and fur pashmina scarves should be a signature accessory in any wardrobe! They are extremely versatile and we are still finding new ways of wearing them! However our favourites are the classics…the neck wrap or drape! When wearing your pashmina in these two ways, you are showing off the gorgeous unique prints and enjoying snuggling into the fur! As you can see Nisha has designed a wide contrasting collection this season with fun quirky prints and also stunning jewelled prints.photo 1 (14)photo 2 (17)If bold prints and colours just aren’t your thing, we also have a beautiful collection of silk embroidered pashminas. They are all very different, the one pictured below has been embellished with golden sequin flowers on each end of the scarf, so when draped you can see the detail front and back! They are perfect for adding a bit of glam to a fairly ordinary outfit! photo 4 (7)The body wrap – Pashminas are our favourite winter accessory, they are gorgeous as scarves and can also be used as beautiful wraps! The Love Niche signature silk pashmina is the perfect way to keep warm by covering up yet also looking super chic! Again, the fur will keep you warm, and the print certainly makes a statement! These are ideal when you’re looking for a little cover up on an evening out with friends, over your festive LBD! photo 3 (10)

 

How will you be wearing your scarves this winter?!

OOTD; An affair with squares.

photo 4 (24)

 

It’s time to update your prints for this season, squares/checks are our faves so far! For this daytime look Nisha has teamed our best selling drape blouse (which has had a fresh print overhaul) with skinny dark wash jeans. When wearing a top which is loose or billowing on top you should always wear something slim or skinny fitting on the bottom, otherwise you lose yourself in fabric and have no shape! Nisha has styled this look perfectly with white sandal heels and she has layered her necklaces and bracelets.

What prints are you wearing this season?

This weeks style tip!

photo 1 (25)Autumn is our favourite season of the year, in our eyes its when the real dressing starts, we move away from floaty summer dresses, short shorts, skimpy tops and bring back out our structured jackets, cable knit jumpers and of course the textures; leather, lace and fur. In Britain of course we are used to cold drab weather, so we love to layer to keep out the chill!

The Love Niche Studio has just got in the new autumn/winter collection, with some truely amazing seasonal must haves! The outfits below are our take on how we would layer during this transitional period between summer/autumn!

Our first look is this gorgeous colour block playsuit (playsuits arent just for summer!) The cobalt colour is bang on trend again this season! We have added a dark navy blue real leather biker style jacket, with quilting on the shoulders (another major a/w trend!) and a woolen scarf, we have gave you two colour options; first is using a scarf which also features the main colour of your outfit, in this case it is cobalt blue with a hint of red, this keeps this look fresh and stylish, using another bold colour would ruin this look and make it too fussy.

The second look is using a nude scarf, if using a nude scarf, try to keep all your accessories the same, for example add a nude heel and a tan bag. This Love Niche nude colour scarf is absolutely gorgeous and so soft, with the added lace it adds another texture and dimension to this look! photo 1 (24)photo 2 (26)photo 3 (18)Our second look is keeping it simple with a twist. We have styled our best selling indigo stretch jeans with a black sheer blouse which has the most amazing gold embroidered collar, with a knitted golden sequin jumper, the textures work really nice together, the slouchy jumper keeps this look relaxed and not too dressy. photo 4 (15)photo 2 (27)Our last look is a bit more classic. These gorgeous black trousers have just landed in the studio, they are an amazing fit, they have a tapered leg to stop them from billowing and a faux leather elasticated waist band. We have gone for a monochrome look with (another new arrival) this dipped hem cream blouse. We have introduced a minimal print with the cream snake print scarf, to keep this look interesting and not boring, and added some colour through the bracelet. photo 3 (19)For when the weather starts to get a bit bitter, we have teamed the above look with our favourite boxy biker jacket! photo 4 (16)

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!

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)

Close up of the bust sequin detail…photo 2 (14)This last maxi dress is not for those who fear colour, it is bold bright and beautiful! The exotic print on this maxi it totally unique, the split sleeves and diamante details add another dimension to this dress, it is a ‘wow’ outfit!photo 1 (13)

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.

photo 4

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!
