Last year, while on a casting, I had the absolute pleasure of meeting with the local Australian curve friendly designer Harlow for the second time! A while back I reviewed a plethora of their rocking pencil skirts but until this meeting I had not had a chance to try out their denim range. From that moment onward I could not stop thinking about each perfectly fitting item.
You will also notice my hair is looking a little longer than usual in these images. This photo shoot was the test run of my amazing new hair extensions from Irresistible Me and a full review will be up later this month. I've always wanted long mermaid like red hair and now I can have it!
Black night skinny leg black denim - $199.00
Jacket and Bodysuit - Old Asos stock
The black night skinny jean in black is absolute perfection. With a true skinny fit that hugs your curves and fits tight at the ankle. Made from a 10oz Cotton/Polyester/Elastane super stretch denim, they are sturdy and stretchy at the same time, holding you in securely while remaining super comfy.
While I would usually opt for a size 16 in jeans, I have found that in all Harlow items the 14 seems to be the best fit for my curves. With a size range of 12 to 24 you don't have to worry about crappy low fitting jeans or poorly made plus size denim.
I'm absolutely smitten with jeans and how they make me feel. When I get a perfect pair of jeans I rarely take them off so you can imagine my addiction to these is super strong right now. I'm a rock chick at heart so I had to style my Harlow items as I would wear them naturally. So I paired these black skinnies with one of my cropped leather motos, a bodysuit (as they are a higher waisted jean and look amazing with tucked in items) and some super high heels.
Oh and your toosh will look amazing in these I promise. A higher waistline gives you more lift and for me with my ample behind creates an amazing shape. I have a standard hourglass shape and I honestly find it hard to find really well fitting jeans that work with my hips and waist ration. These are spot on and I'm never taking them off!
Zip me up pencil skirt - $111.30
Jacket and Bodysuit - Old Asos stock
From the perfect pair of skinny jeans to a curve hugging super sexy pencil skirt. The zip me up skirt is curvetastic and fits like a second skin. The fit creates that perfect vavavoom shape that I'm always looking for it matches with absolutely everything in my wardrobe. The Rayon/nylon/elastane ponte is soft and stretchy while still holding its shape.
I adore the chunky metal zipper feature as it is bold, and really punks up what would just be a plain black pencil skirt. They best thing about his silver zipper feature is they fact that it is actually functioning! So you can show as much or as little thigh as you dare to.
I'm wearing this style in a size 14 and the fit is spot on. I'll be wearing this everywhere and can't wait to style it all year round. The fabric works for all sessions and the styling options are endless.
Asos Classic Black Trenchcoat (old stock)
To be honest I was unsure at first when it came to these capri pants. I'm not a huge fan of capris but the black reptile fabric drew me in and I knew I could style this in my own perfect way. These are a high waisted (to the belly button) capri and they are a little a little tighter on me than the jeans but I think they help flatten and shape the legs. They are perfect to pair with knee high boots for the cooler months and I will be layering jumpers and coats with these while I'm in the UK.
While I'm usually a fan of all black, I love the print and the almost grey tinge these pants have and they work so well with the coat and boot combo. For a closer look at the fabric and print click on the product link above. These like the other two items are a 14 and I can recommend that as a standard size 16AU that this size will be perfect for you. But be sure to check the size chart and compare your measurements.
I can't get enough of all 3 of these items and I'm so excited to see what Harlow have in store for the next few seasons.
