How to style a silk shirt from Perri Cutten — mastering the art of everyday dressing



Brigitte Silk Shirt

1. Styling a silk shirt in black and gold

Perfect for 9 to 5 in the office, dinner and drinks in the city or evenings at the theatre, our Brigitte Silk Shirt features a distinctive black and gold rope print exclusive to Perri Cutten. Whether paired with high-waisted pants and strappy heels, tapered trousers and boots or skinny jeans, a long-line coat and ballet flats, the golden accents within the shirt’s design effortlessly catch the light, adding a soft shine to any ensemble.

Beyond these classic pairings, our versatile silk shirt works well in a layered ensemble, complementing a slouchy blazer for days in the office or paired over a black slip dress for a more fashion-forward approach.

While the silk shirt styling possibilities are limitless with our adaptable, Australian-made silhouette, accessories can add the finishing touches and a new layer of dimension. Go for minimalist gold jewellery to echo the shirt's delicate shimmer, a mini shoulder bag for everyday wear or a structured black clutch for fancy evenings out.



Andie Silk Shirt

2. Styling a versatile, multi-toned silk shirt

Cut from a luxurious silk blend that offers a fluid, lightweight feel, Perri Cutten’s Andie Silk Shirt in Ink Blues features an exclusive print design and a slightly oversized collar. With deep blue hues that complement the design, this silk shirt pairs effortlessly with a beige trouser and neutral-toned pumps — taking you from your desk to an after-work dinner date with a refined sense of style.

For busy weekends or more relaxed settings that call for casual ensembles, master the art of off-duty dressing by styling this silk shirt with black skinny jeans and monochrome ballet flats or white linen shorts and sandals for warmer days.

3. Styling a contemporary silk shirt

If you need a standout piece perfect for any occasion, our Andie Silk Shirt in ivory and black features a contemporary colour palette that serves as the ideal canvas for simple and statement-making looks. For an office-appropriate ensemble that speaks volumes about your professionalism, tuck this must-have silk shirt into a pair of tailored black pants and complete the outfit with boots and a tailored blazer. If you’re commuting to the workplace on a crisp or chilly morning, stay warm by adding another layer of outerwear like a thick woollen coat or classic black trench.

For casual days that call for relaxed yet smart ensembles, team our Andie Silk Shirt with white or blue denim jeans and sneakers. You can also roll up the sleeves and partially tuck the front for an effortless vibe or layer it under a cashmere sweater with the collar and hem peeking out — this will add texture, layers and depth to your overall look.



Frida Silk Shirt

4. Styling a blue-toned silk shirt

The Frida Silk Shirt exudes effortless poise with its soft, blue hue, making it ideal for those needing a versatile, wear-everywhere staple. Meticulously crafted in Australia from a stretch silk georgette, this fluid, soft-to-the-touch shirt features gathered sleeve hems — a subtle yet considered detail that adds texture to the overall design.

Whether styled with tailored trousers and a statement belt or dressed down with a denim skirt and sneakers for a weekend outing, the shirt’s colourway makes it suitable for experimenting with bold accessories — think layered necklaces, chunky gold hoop earrings and colourful handbags or clutches that match the tones of the season.

For weekend outings and long lunches, tuck the Frida Silk Shirt into high-waisted, cropped trousers and top off your look with a pair of black leather loafers.
