I have so many core pieces in my wardrobe but then it comes to amazing tops and bases for each and every look I have to say that my go to pieces are always Heart of Haute. With an almost lifelong addiction to this label I've become an expert on fitting my body perfectly into their creations and I can't get enough of these pieces
Joanna Top in Black - $44.00
Haute Circle Skirt - Buffalo Gingham in Red
Winter calls for long sleeves and the Joana top in black is a versatile and stunning piece. A faux wrap blouse in a super stretchy fabric that molds to your shape and makes your cleavage the center of attention in the best kind of way.
I'm wearing this style is a 1XL and I find this too large for me. My large chest and other measurements are more of an XL as it's a really forgiving and stretchy fabric. The faux wrap feature also offers more room around the best as it's a very deep v.
Lily Top in Black - $40.00
Finally, I have my all time favourite top for work in basic black. But Lily is anything but basic! Featuring a square not closing collar which fits perfectly over a larger chest. Lily is a great high neckline for busty girls, that compliment our shape instead of emphasizing or over covering.
The 3/4 length sleeves also flatter your arms and offers just the right amount of skin. I'm wearing this style in a 1XL, and the fit is perfect with this top. The stretch factor is the same as the Joanna but the fit is more true to size.
Marilyn Tee in Lime - $40.00
Sweet Sweater in Red - $40.00
I'm loving full red looks at them moment with a hint of contrasting colour. The Marilyn tee is the perfect match and pop of bright lime with this ruby red outfit. This outfit instantly cheers me up and is a bright and cute change from my usual all black winter uniform.
I'm not confident enough to wear the Marilyn without a cardigan at the moment but the high neckline and lack of sleeves make this style great for layering be it under cardigans, shirts or dresses. I've paired this little lime number with my red sweet sweater and buffalo plaid skirt but you can wear this with just about anything. The off the shoulder fit and curve hugging fabric make it a very simple yet sexy style.
You can snap this style up in black, red, grey and navy without sleeves here or a long sleeve version named the Monroe Top in a variety of colours. I'm super keen to shoot/review some of the Monroe's as they will be perfect for spring/summer in Australia! I also wear my sweet sweaters in XL as they are so stretchy.
Rayleine Wrap Dress in Whisper - $119.00
Oh Rayleine you have my heart always. The Rayleine wrap dress is a curvy girls best friend. Earlier this year I shot and reviewed this style in the Rose Noir print and I was instantly in love. My rose print wrap is a size 1XL but as I was unsure of the fabric I opted to go for a 2XL and the fit is actually spot on. With the rose fabric which is very lightweight and flowing I found the 1XL to be a perfect fit but pale green Whisper fabric is a firmer cotton (100% to be precise.) has a little less give so the 2XL was a good choice. Being a wrap style, you can adjust the fit to accommodate your measurements. I wanted a more fitted waist and roomier bust and the wrap accommodates that with absolute ease.
I'm not usually a fan of such pale prints but the whisper floral print was so soft and perfect it had to be mine! This soft shade of green pairs perfectly with all of my sweet sweaters and other cardigans and I can't wait to wear this all round.
Many thanks to the brilliant Damien Bowerman for shooting these pieces perfectly. I can't wait to plan our next shoot!
