Regardless of the designer label, only natural fibers shall ever grace my body. For me, cotton, silk and fine cashmere are the key elements on which my entire wardrobe are built as frankly, my skin gets irritated by everything else. That is why I have been a fan of LA Designer Hale Bob for years. The line features fantastic prints that are reminiscent of Pucci and many of tops and dresses are constructed of a silk base.
Pear shaped women can certainly benefit from having a few Hale Bob tops in their wardrobes as many of them feature v-neck and cinch detail that will highlight a small ribcage while covering our hips. The key to making this work look for Pear Shapely ladies is pair a flowing top with skinny jeans, that will provide the most balance to the equation.
If you are interested in channelling your inner Bohemian love child, then there are literally hundreds of tops to choose from. However the cut and color combinations of the stretch silk Multi Bohemian Chic V-Neck Top would look amazing with a pair of dark, skinny jeans.
The top is currently on sale for $150 making it a bit more appealing then other offerings on the site and by adding a simple long sleeve black layering t-shirt underneath, the item can be worn through the fall.
Shopping Tip-Those ladies lucky enough to live in LA should stop by Loehmans as they are a major seller of Hale Bob overstock. Tuesday and Thursdays are when new arrivals are put on the floor at both the Burbank and Los Angeles locations and I have several tops that originally retailed at over $200 in the $50-$60 range.
Since the main focus of this look would be on the wildly patterned top, simple jewelry would at the finishing touches. My recommendation would be the Waterfall Necklace ($53) in sterling silver by Hurricane by Jane Jewelry.
The necklace is light and airy and the fine change dangles will certainly compliment the plunging V-neck and the skin that you choose to show.
The finely crafted Crystal Ship Earrings ($41) in Sterling silver would further add to the look.
To add the final bit of bling and fully integrate all the pieces the Crystal Persuasion Bracelet ($49) in sterling silver will seal the deal.
Of course if you are interested in purchasing all three pieces together, contact me directly through my ETSY boutique and I’ll work out a deal just for you.
