Not Just For Daytime – Hawes Curtis Shirts + Special Offer

I’m having a little play with satin this week. If you’re a regular reader here, you will already know what a huge fan I am of the Hawes Curtis brand. But if you’re quite new to visiting, let me tell you that Hawes Curtis is a shirt brand for men and women. Good quality shirts at reasonable prices.

What I like most about the brand are the quirky materials that the brand uses. You will always find something a little different.

I'm having a little play with satin this week. If you're a regular reader here, you will already know what a huge fan I am of the Hawes Curtis brand. But if you're quite new to visiting, let me tell you that Hawes Curtis is a shirt brand for men and women. Good quality shirts at reasonable prices.


I normally tend to go with one of the new quirky cotton materials that Hawes Curtis launch each season, you can see my last cotton design here I wear the shirt endlessly with jeans.

I’ve been eyeing the satin shirts up for some time now, they also have gorgeous “pussy bow” shirts too. Very miss Moneypenny!




I had made the decision to wear the satin shirt with some new White jeans that I’ve recently purchased but it’s just too hot! So I decided to wear these three-quarter shorts to help stay a bit cooler. I don’t think I’ve ever worn shorts as much ever as this year!

I’ve sized up one on this Taupe fitted single cuff shirt. I didn’t want the shirt to be too clingy. I’m wearing a size 12 but in the cotton, I wear a size 10 and it’s really fitted. There is fitted or semi-fitted to choose from.

Both the cuff and collar of the shirt is finished off to perfection (no puckering) but I decided to roll the sleeves so the look didn’t look too formal. I love this Taupe colour, I think this neutral colour works with anything.



I slipped into my sparkly Carvela Kankan shoes to finish the look. I couldn’t decide on the bag? Gold or White? I didn’t want to look too dressy. So I’ve gone for a simple White envelope clutch.

How would you wear this satin shirt?



I think the shirt will work well with the Autumn Winter wardrobe too. A pair of Black evening trousers is what I have in mind. How else would you wear the shirt? I actually stayed pretty cool on our night out considering the long sleeves. The satin is very lightweight.



I just had to add in this photo of one of my favourite plants. Crocosmia. I have them in my garden and I love the height and colour of them. A burst of semi-cool wind, I was in the perfect spot!

    It looks stunning on you. And the colour comes across as being very rich and luxurious too. I don’t think satin would hide all my lumps and bumps unfortunately, but I’d always give it a try. Thanks for joining us for the #dreamteam x

    I love the pants and the shirt, although I don’t have a waist and would have to wear the blouse untucked.

    You look fantastic!

    I love this outfit! I think the shirt would work for all seasons. Yes, it would look good with black pants or skirt too. I also think it would be darling with jeans or shorts. Great choice!
    You look beautiful!

    Oh wow, your shirt is beautiful Laurie, such a lovely colour. Love your shoes too. I need some like these 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing your post with us at Welcome To The Weekend Blog Hop. Have a lovely weekend Laurie x

    You look glam and gorgeous. I love the high/low look, so whether you pair this with white cotton shorts or pants, jeans or a skirt, it’s classy looking. I’m so tired of women going out in public like they just finished doing the yard. What happened to having some pride in how we look? Brenda

    These shirts are so versatile, Laurie. I think so many women think of them as work attire, yet they can transition so perfectly for both casual and dress up!!

    You are so effortlessly glam Laurie!! Your shirt is very flattering (the pups look magnificent)! How would I wear it? Maybe with strings of pearls and threadbare jeans…? I love how you’ve styled it though, you’ve knocked it out the park – again xxx

    Wow! Just how do you do it, Laurie? You take a pair of shorts and make them classily glam. A-mazing! If I was a brand, I would sign you up in a heartbeat.

    Oh and crocosmia – I love the show of flame red but beware, it spreads like a weed on speed. I’ve recently had most of mine dug up as it had consumed a flower bed. The gardener told me I should dig up and divide, replacing just a few each year, so that’s my top tip for crocosmia. Hugs, x.

      Thanks Mary. Turns out I’ve lost some of my Crocosmia this year! Just not been home enough. I will steal some from mothers! xx
