Trend of the week – Must have prints SS14

Last week we did our first post about the must have colours for SS14, in our series of “Trend of the week” posts. This week it is all about prints, SS14 has gone print crazy, from feminine florals to edgy abstract designs!

FLORALS – They have made an elegant triumphant return this SS14! But forget those chintzy florals! You have so much choice this season, with a broad collection of different prints ranging from pretty 3d floral clusters at Giambattista Valli, embroidered floral details at Erdem and oriental Japanese style floral prints as seen at Marni and Hermes. Elie Saab also wowed us with a gorgeous collection, the poppy print is one of our faves! SS14 FLORALS

STRIPES – We have seen lots of stripes on the runway this SS14 and we are loving them in all sizes; thick, bold or thin, horizontal and vertical! Burberry showed gorgeous thick bold horizontal striped pencil skirts and sheer skirts with bold striped knickers peeking through. Fendi showed stripes in some unusual ways by layering different shades of fabrics to create an ombre effect to their dresses. Stripes were also shown at Vanessa Bruno in the form of zebra stripes and also bold coloured striped high waisted shorts and matching tops!SS14 STRIPES

CHECKS – Last season they were huge and tartan was one of the biggest trends of the season, and they carry on with their dominance on the runway into SS14. They have had a SS14 overhaul, think colour, when picking your checks anything from candyfloss pink to acidic yellow hues! Take your inspiration from House of Holland who showed a gorgeous collection at LFW. Sass and Bide also showed checks in their SS14 collection with monochrome check and sheer white check jumpers also pink check sections on maxi skirts.SS14 CHECKS

NOVELTY – We saw a lot of unusual and eclectic prints this SS14, from fun iconic lip motif prints at Giles, to butterflies at Vanessa Bruno, then ranging to the very creatively stunning yet unusual collection at Christopher Kane who had cut out petals (some in very questionable places!!) slogan “petal” and “flower” printed jumpers and flower anatomy printed on silk and sheer dresses and jumpers. Ashish is another designer who showed a lot of slogan prints in the collections this season, a favourite being “Coca-Cola” shown on tops, dresses, jumpers with cobalt blue sequined arms and even trousers, which were also printed with Arabian words.SS14 NOVELTYImage credit to style.com

OOTD; Clashing monochrome.

20130703-183707.jpgEven though we are thrilled that autumn is upon us, the past few days of summer have been glorious, today included! So to keep summer alive we have decided to wear some bright shades today to keep us in a fun loving mood. Monochrome is always a classic colour combo, you can never go wrong with classic black and white. We have put a twist on monochrome with this look and teamed clashing prints.

The striped top is light and airy, perfect for warmer days, and the yellow jacket ties in perfectly with the yellow waist band on the skirt! For those days you don’t want to bare all, 40 denier tights are ideal!

What are you wearing for these last days of summer?!

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!

This week’s styling tip.

Let your jewels take centre stage

Whatever your style, great accessories are a highly personalised way to express your creative fashion personality and find your fashion bliss.

Great accessorising reflects and compliments your style on multi-facetted levels, at times shamelessly taking centre stage with head-turning self confidence. In the words of the iconic celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe “Accessorises are the antidote to blah!” And this alone is a great reason to add a little BLING into your personal style. Accessories will add a complete approach to your styling repertoire adding versatility to your wardrobe. For instance a statement necklace can transform the mood of an outfit from “office” to understated glam in a twinkling!

If your evening dress is a stark stunner (or has a lot of embellishment), one single showstopping accessory, like Grace Kelly‘s earrings, is all you need.

When deciding to add accessorising to your style skills-set, remember that as with all thing fashion there are no hard fastened rules, and rules are made to be broken… aren’t they? But a word of warning! Accessorising is Addictive and it’s the perfect way to add that personal touch to an outfit. In essence accessories are the finishing touch that will leave you feeling styled.

We have just received a fabulous range of our Bling at Love Niche. Stunning Statement pieces in 92.5 silver and in exclusive Stones like  Smoky Labrodorit, calsedon , Barok Pearls, Green kuarts, Die kuarts pink and Turkuaz perl to name a few.

Here our some pictures to tease you

A tip before we go

 When wearing large and colorful statement jewelry, try to keep your clothing a solid color – no crazy patterns or florals. Wearing a coloured piece of jewel is how you can add colour through accessories(we did a post about it earlier, to read all about it Click here )and keep your other jewellery, accessories and your makeup toned down and elegant or else it takes the attention away from your gorgeous jewelry!

Hope you enjoyed reading our post.

This week’s styling tip!

Summer is already here…! And you have decided to spend some holidays in a wonderful area surrounded by heavenly beaches with sun shining bright on you. There you want to flaunt your new bikinis and swimsuits and look glamorously hot.
Looking glamorous on the beach needn’t be a chore – a few simple fashion tips that anyone can follow will help you achieve that sexy, sun-kissed, glamorously chic look that will take you from beach to bar with ease.

These can include a beach bag, some killer sunglasses, a comfy beach towel, gorgeous flip-flops, wedges, Audrey Hepburn style sunhats, fun colourful jewellery, a flattering swimsuit that’s suitable for your body shape (We did a post on it before. Click here to read all about it). But for us the list doesn’t end here.

These days Every wise girl knows a trip to the beach is incomplete without some form of beach cover up – something floaty and fabulous to pull on over your swimsuit between sunbathing sessions. Hence for that ultimate chic glamorous, we feel you need some flowing kaftans that will instantly take you from the beach to the bar and make you look at feel fabulous.

This Summer we launched our range of Cruise/resort wear Niche by Nisha Vedhara for Newcastle fashion week 2013. Click here for the designers launch interview with Etc magazine<a title= The theme of the collection was “Beach to the Bar” the collection consisted of some fun accessorised bikinis and kaftans in flowing fabrics like georgette, silk chiffon, colourful prints, beaded necklines, tassel etc. We are so proud to share that the collection was hugely appreciated and has been extremely popular 🙂 Click here for some more pictures from the launch event.

Present in every fashionable girls beach bag, the kaftan is quickly overtaking the sarong this summer as the perfect way to cover up on the beach. Traditionally, a full length and voluminous silhouette is best but new variants on the kaftan include shorter, straighter shapes, billowing sleeves and plunging, embellished necklines. Adapt your cover up from day to night by adding some clever accessories – wear a wide belt pulling the kaftan in at the waist for a sexy hourglass style or pull on some shimmering metallic sandals or wedges for a chic evening look.

Here is a glimpse of our collections of silk kaftans that will make you look and feel amazing, to take you from daytime to evening in a matter of seconds. The collection is available for purchase at the Love Niche studio

The over-sized statement collar gives this coat an edgy twist. (Also available in black) photo 1 (7)Secondly we have this white linen jacket. Again it is light and easy to pop for a casual daytime look, the tie at the back pulls the jacket in to make it more flattering and fitted. photo 2 (8)
