Hawes And Curtis Shirts For Work Or Play


I have long been a fan of a loud and patterned shirt .....


Hawes And Curtis are famed for their men's and women's tailored shirts for workwear. But these shirts are too good to be just for work. My OH often buys a shirt from Hawes and Curtis, they are very well cut, well finished and the materials that are available are by no means boring.


I was delighted when the Hawes and Curtis team asked if I would like to style a shirt for my readers. I very nearly chose a plain Pussy bow  shirt but decided to push the boat out for something more colourful.
I love the colours of this shirt. Orange and deep blue, this shirt is a light as a feather on and has a silky feel to it.
The bow can be worn high on the neck or lower down, or just floating ( all three ways look nice)


Meeting friends at Chiswick House today for a girls catch up,the grounds here are beautiful and I decided to wear my deep blue trousers, and I tied in the white of the shirt with my white bag. I think this shirt would also look great with white trousers or blue jeans. I have chosen semi-fitted here, there are also fitted styles available.


Do you like to wear wacky bright prints ? Let me show you  some other shirts Hawes and Curtis offer



              Taupe Satin Pussy Bow Here
                                               



Turquoise and Pink Satin Pussy Bow Here




     Blue and Orange Paisley as worn Here


Do take a look at the Hawes And Curtis website . Which would you go for ? Plain Or Patterned ?

Have a fantastic week XO Laurie

  4. And I second you, Laurie. I love a loud and patterned shirt too and yours is fabulous. The colours are so striking the the bow adds just the right touch of feminine to the shirt.
    We must meet up soon for that long overdue coffee we said we'd do back in May!

  15. Hi Laurie, I always say this but I just love and adore your posts- was so excited to see this one on the link up. The shirt looks effortlessly classy and I loved your trousers- the waistline and detailing. The aqua shirt would be my favourite. You chose a beautiful setting for the photos- glad to hear you had a catch up at the same time! X Lou #brillblogposts

  36. I really love the shirt that you chose. This color of blue is my favorite color in fact I have a wall that runs through my dining room and kitchen that is this exact electric cobalt blue. The shirt that you chose is my favorite and I love that it is accented with orange. You wear it beautifully I love how you paired it with the blue pants and the White purse. I would definitely wear this top and I would choose the exact same color that you did. I love it.
