If there’s one thing that makes a great staple wardrobe piece for autumn and winter, it’s a flannel circle skirt with pockets. And if there’s another, it’s a velvet top that can be dressed up or down throughout the whole season. As luck would have it, Heart of Haute has us covered with both.
Top: Black Deanna Velvet top C/ O Heart of Haute
Skirt: Flannel Check Black circle skirt C/O Heart of Haute
Cardigan: Burgundy MAK Cropped Cardigan
Petticoat: Wine Jennifer by Malco Modes
Shoes: Old season colour of Hotter’s Donna shoes
This flannel circle skirt is a piece autumn dreams are made of. Crafted from 100% cotton flannel, it’s soft to the touch and comfortable to wear, with no scratchy-fabric-feels here. A true circle skirt, it twirls deliciously and can house any petticoat as voluminous as your heart desires. The hem binding gives a truly polished finish to the piece, while the side seam pockets will help keep your hands cosy and your affects safe. It closes with a centre back zip.
Made from velvet and featuring a cowl neckline, the Deanna top exudes an elegant, luxe look. It has short sleeves that won’t bundle up awkwardly under layers should you wish to wear any, but even worn alone it’s a lovely and versatile piece that can easily play a part in many an upcoming holiday look. It’s not a cropped piece so it will tuck into your chosen bottoms without leaving you self-consciously re-tucking every time you get in and out of a seat.
I was sent both of these pieces in 1X. The top is very stretchy because it’s made from velvet, so the bust flat measures 44 inches with stretch to 48, while the waist is 37 inches laid flat with stretch to 42 inches. The skirt, meanwhile, is wholly non-stretch, so the waist is a firm 36 inches and the skirt measures 26.5 inches in length.
The Black Flannel circle skirt is available in XS-2X, or available in the same style in 9 other colours and prints. The Deanna top is also available in sizes XS-2X in 4 different coloured velvets. All Heart of Haute pieces are designed and made in Los Angeles and can be shipped worldwide or purchased from one of their many global stockists.
