1. 3 Ways to Style: The Satin Slip Skirt

    3 Ways to Style: The Satin Slip Skirt


    Fashion fell back in love with the 90s silk slip silhouette last summer and it seems the trend is here to stay. The nineties revival began with a renewed love of the slinky slip dress made famous by designer Calvin Klein and made legendary by the supermodel Kate Moss. This season, the slinky slip dress silhouette has evolved into a global obsession with the bias cut silk skirt. Both designer and high street brands alike have adopted the silk slip trend making it a SS19 essential. The slinky staple is not just sartorially sound but incredibly versatile as well, making it the perfect trend piece to incorporate into your existing wardrobe. The fluidity of the Louche Tehani Satin skirt balances so well with oversized items and more structured pieces. The Louche Tehani – like any slinky slip skirt – can easily take you from day to night if you’re savvy with your styling. Let us show you how it’s done.

    LEOPARD LIVIN'

    At Joy, we love playing with print and colour – especially for daytime styling. The silky style of the Louche Tehani makes it a great halfway house for smart casual looks that have a quirky touch. Pair your Tehani with the leopard print Brave Soul Stoney blouse for a fashion forward ensemble. Two trends in one?! This outfit is already winning. Leopard print and pink are a match made in heaven and balance the lingerie inspired bias cut design perfectly. The satin skirt is styled minimally time and time again so why not mix it up a bit? Playing with colour and pattern is not only fun but radiates an I-know-exactly-what-I’m-doing conviction that only the best outfits have. To complete this sleepwear as streetwear ensemble, style with your chunkiest trainer, a bright red lip and the pink Louche Stephani Banana Leaf earrings.

    SUBVERTED SLOGAN

    The oversized jumper and skirt trend is nothing new. The classic combination has been a fashion favourite for years but has definitely gained vigour due to 90’s slip skirt revival. The oversized knit and skirt combo is ideal for the unpredictable British Spring weather we know and love. Pair the sleek Tehani satin skirt with its’ polar opposite – a slogan sweater. The epitome of smart casual styling, the Tehani and the Louche Jan En Vacances couldn’t be more different but somehow the combo works. The exact fashion formula is still a mystery to us but what we know for sure is that contrasting silhouettes almost always looks fab. Plus, it can’t hurt to try right? The pop of colour of the ‘En Vacances’ slogan compliments the blush pink of the Tehani skirt and adds a touch of playfulness. Wear the new Louche Lash Abstract Print as a square head scarf and slip on your fave pair of mules for an arty off duty vibe.

    TEHANI OF THE NIGHT

    Sometimes you just want to get really dressed up. Forget smart casual. We want smart, smart! We’re talking platform heels, feather boa and fake lashes galore! For those days when you want to look fancier than fancy the Tehani satin skirt is your bff. Showcase the skirt’s sleek silhouette with a pair of 90s inspired square toe kitten heels to elongate the leg. For an evening look we want to amp up the uber femininity of the slip skirt rather than tone it down, so a delicate black camisole is perfect. The contrasting black and pink tones add essential drama but the minimal cuts of both pieces keep the look effortlessly chic. Pair this evening look with the Louche Dexter drop earrings for a mixed metal moment and opt for a bold lip to own your powerful femininity.



    If there is one throwback that has staying power, it’s the 90s slip skirt. It may even transcend its trend status at this rate to become an everyday wardrobe staple. So if you haven’t tried it yet, why not give it a go? Kiss your 70s flares goodbye and let your Tehani satin skirt reintroduce you to the Nineties.

  2. Spring Wedding S.O.S

    Spring Wedding S.O.S

    With wedding season fast approaching, avoid the dreaded ‘what to wear’ scenario and get your outfit(s) sorted in advance. This season is all about embracing your femininity with ruffles, romantic sleeves and drop hems galore. With love in the air, romantic styling is a must. We’re talking blush tones, florals and billowing silhouettes. Invest in key occasion wear pieces that have potential for versatile styling. Having multiple wedding invitations can start to get expensive especially if you wear a new outfit every single time. Choose versatile pieces that can be styled up in different ways for various occasions to maximise your wardrobe without breaking the bank. There is something for everyone in our new occasion wear collection. It wouldn’t be a Spring Wedding without florals and we have an array of gorgeous options that you’re guaranteed to love.


    Louche Celina

    The vibrant blue and carnation print of the Louche Celina midi dress is sure to capture everyone’s attention – without detracting from the bride of course! The conservative midi skirt length is well balanced by the Celina’s sleeveless design. Going sleeveless is a great option for spring and will let you get the most out of your occasion wear wardrobe. Style the Celina with a faux fur pink shrug for one wedding and a white tailored blazer for another. The warm and cool tones within the dress give you scope to mix your metals and play with both silver and gold jewellery for different occasions. Pair your Celina with nude heels and adorn your hair with the Louche Isla Moon hair clips as a sparkling finishing touch.


    Louche Veronique

    If you’re a hopeless romantic, you’ll be obsessed with the Louche Veronique midi dress in our newest Spider Lilly print. This dress is the epitome of ethereal glamour and the perfect option for a spring ceremony. You can never go wrong in florals especially if you style them with the right accessories. The high low hem lets you show off a bit of leg without committing to a full on mini style. The high neckline balances out the high low hem to keep your ensemble somewhat family friendly. Style with a pair of silver drop earrings and stilettos to add a touch of modern sparkle. If you’re more than a one-time wearer, you could definitely wear the Veronique just with trainers and a denim jacket at the weekend.


    Louche Alexy Spider Lilly

    If you’re not a dress kinda gal but love our new spider lily print why not try the Louche Alexy Spider Lilly blouse. Featuring the same striking floral print as the Veronique dress but in a blouse, the Alexy Spider Lilly gives you more styling options whilst remaining perfect for formal occasions. You could style your Louche Alexy Spider Lilly with tailored black trousers and stilettos, with a metallic mini skirt and boots or even with a silk slip skirt and mules. Styling separates allows you to really have fun creating an outfit and to step outside your normal style boundaries. With more versatility comes more styling potential which, can only be a good thing!


    Louche Tehani Satin Midi Skirt

    A satin midi skirt will save you time and time again when you have no clue what to wear. In a luxe satin fabric and a midi length, the Tehani skirts are trusty wardrobe staples for both casual and formal occasions. The perfect piece to take you from AM to PM. The Louche Tehani Satin Midi Skirt in blush pink would work well with, say, the Louche Alexy Spider Lilly blouse - styling two stellar separates together to create a truly inspired ensemble.


    Louche Petula Carnation Print Dress

    Now this is how you do florals. If you love a floral print but are finding every floral dress on the market painfully dull then the Louche Petula Carnation Print dress is for you. Mixing our romantic carnation print with a truly unique silhouette and cut, the Petula dress is the ultimate wedding guest piece. The apricot base is a welcomed change from the traditional white and blush tones typically worn during wedding season. It’s all in the detail with the Petula dress featuring a gorgeous ruffled high neck and capped sleeves with an opulent gold woven belt to synch you in after the wedding reception. Keep it simple and style the Petula with nude block heels and gold jewellery so you can dance the night away in comfort whilst sparkling on the dance floor.

    Whether it's an elegant garden party, a destination event or a black-tie affair, our occasion wear line up has got you covered. Once you’ve got your outfit sorted you can focus entirely on the free bar, cutting shapes and, of course, the happy couple.

    3 Cities, 3 Looks


    PARIS

    Meet Fleur. Our stylish Parisian living in the heart of the city of love. By day she works in PR and by night she dabbles as a jazz singer. Effortlessly stylish, Fleur can make anything look chic whilst remaining cool as a cucumber. Her go-to-outfit for the Saturday pain au chocolate run mixes tailoring with relaxed cuts and a pop of colour. The wide legged cropped style of the Louche Meredith trouser is perfect for a simple yet smart ensemble. In Spring, Fleur loves to incorporate bright florals into her wardrobe and her current top of choice is the Louche ‘Darina’ blouse. The contrasting yellow floral print with the navy is a refreshing take on the classic jeans and a t-shirt combination. To elevate this simple outfit to Fleur’s standards she accessorises with the Louche gold hoops, ‘Esther’ belt and ‘Gunner’ hair clips. Just before she runs out the door, she chucks her ‘Jenna’ pearl beaded beret into her bag, just in case it starts to rain while she’s in line at the Boulangerie.


    BERLIN

    Berlin born and bred, Hanna’s style is focused on monochromatic tones and edge. Hanna is a freelance graphic designer trying to make it in the competitive art world. Berlin is full of creative characters and Hanna is no exception. However, she prefers for her art to speak for itself and therefore her fashion sense is quite pared back. Hanna is the queen of all black ensembles and feels her most confident when she embraces the dark side. Her favourite piece to take her from day to night is her juicy black denim mini dress. The utilitarian vibe of the dress is bang on trend and very Hanna. She usually styles her ‘Juicy’ mini dress with black combat boots to achieve her fave edgy look. Her trusty Louche ‘Grayland’ crossbody bag, ‘Nikkie’ sunglasses and silver Louche luxe ‘Frances’ hoops are the cool finishing touches that make this outfit Hanna’s go to.

    ROME

    Giulia has taught English at a primary school in Rome for over 5 years. She is obsessed with fashion and although she loves her job it doesn’t fulfil her sartorially. Her day-to-day is far from stylish so she loves to go all out at the weekends. You’ll never see Guilia in a jeans and a t-shirt. She describes her personal style as polished and feminine. She has been loving the Louche ‘Indie’ wrap midi skirt because of it's bold poppy print and flattering tie waist. Before the intense summer heat hits Rome, Giulia prefers to wear light knits with loose skirts like the ‘Indie’ to add extra warmth. For accessories, she prefers to stick to gold jewellery and her current obsession is the Louche ‘Amelia’ drop earrings to add drama and shine to her outfits. Before she heads out to meet her friends for some gelato, she adds her trusty pair of ‘Kiko’ gold sunglasses and platform sandals to elevate her ensemble from cute to effortless chic.
