Fashion Fix Friday 2: How I Dress Hawes & Curtis

Hi Belles!!

Happy Good Friday. I hope you are enjoying your Friday off so far and have exciting plans for this lovely long weekend. As I said last week today is Fashion Fix Friday and as always its all things fashion. This week I am going to show you how I dressed my new Hawes & Curtis shirts.

Last week my family were bad influences and persuaded me to purchase. I went into Hawes & Curtis to return a bag for my brother. Before I knew it, I was whipping out the card and paying for 5 new (albeit gorgeous) shirts. I have to admit I am glad they did not stop me, because I am in love with the fit, colour and style of the shirts.

Instead of my usual hauls of just showing you my new items on lifeless hangers. I decided to show you the shirts on my mannequin and how I would style them. So I hope you enjoy :)


Hawes & Curtis are luxury shirt makers based on Jermyn Street, London. They have been established since 1913 by Ralph Hawes and Freddie Curtis. They have created luxurious clothing for the royalty as well as the aristocracy since 1913; and maintained their high quality while keeping to the English heritage with their classic styles. Even though they maintain their heritage they are still keeping with the evolving styles and trends, keeping them up to date and relevant in the current fashion world. 

As well as creating amazing shirts, Hawes & Curtis create high quality jackets, jumpers, a wide array of colourful ties and cufflinks to compliment all shirts. Not only have they stuck to clothing but have ventured into accessories to complete your outfit. These range from bags, hats and shoes etc ensuring that you do not leave the store without a stylish outfit. The best this is that they are not exclusive to just the royalty or aristocracy anymore; but accessible to everyone, especially with 30 stores around the UK.

The White Shirt

Necklaces: Primark & AX Paris

Everybody needs a crisp white shirt in their wardrobe, it is one of those staple items. A white shirt could be dressed up for the office or dressed down with rolled up sleeves for that casual trip. I decided to style my white shirt by sticking to the colour blocking trend. I teamed my shirt with royal blue tapered trousers, a fitted fuschia pink blazer and patent nude pumps. I also added an extravagant statement necklace just to add some sparkle to the outfit.

Blazer: Primark
Trousers: Primark
Necklace: New Look
Heels: Primark

Purple Polka Hearts

Necklace: New Look

As soon as I saw this shirt I thought of the Burberry Prorsum Heart print silk shirt, that was a key favourite amongst the likes of Victoria Beckham. Although it is not silk I think this is a pretty good dupe. I would wear this shirt for drinks with the girls or a casual trip to the theatre/cinema. I decided to style this shirt with my dark denim jeans and patent black pumps. I also chose to accessorise it with a glittery purple clutch and purple statement necklace.


Jeans: Forever 21
Necklace: New Look
Clutch: New Look

The Satin Pussy Bow

Brooch: My mum's

I have always wanted a pussy bow shirt and finally I have added one to my shirt collection. This shirt is so versatile, on the mannequin I have tied the bow like a tie and added a glittery brooch for effect. However, when I styled the shirt I tied the bow low to make the shirt into more of a V-neckline. I decided to dress this shirt how I would wear it to the office. I teamed it with my navy fit & flare skirt to give me more of a shape, my fitted textured weave blazer, and patent black pumps

Jacket: H&M
Skirt: H&M
Heels: Ebay

The Striped Shirt

Necklace: New Look
This shirt is absolutely gorgeous and very comfortable. I especially love the little Hawes & Curtis crest on the back of the sleeve cuffs. I decided to keep this shirt bright and teamed it with all white to ensure that the colour popped. I styled it with my white jeans, white long line fitted blazer, black and white striped heels and some light pearls.

Jeans: New Look
Heels: New Look
Jacket: Primark
Pearls: Primark & AX Paris

The Red Pinstripe

Necklace: Primark

This shirt has a rich deep red base with fine white pinstripes, and white collars and cuffs. As soon as I saw this I automatically thought it would be great for the office, but also a great casual shirt. I would wear this on a shopping trip or sightseeing while on holiday. I decided to team this shirt with white shorts, black pleather biker jacket, red gold buckled flats, and a red structured bag with gold detailing.

 Shorts: H&M
Flats: Primark
Bag: Primark

Which is your favourite shirt and which style did you like the best?
