A Guide To The Perfect White Shirt

White shirts are a wardrobe staple. When you find the perfect one, she will be a lifelong friend that is your trusty outfit go-to. Styling your white shirt in different ways, or investing in varying styles can mean you are well dressed for work, weekend outings, date nights and even lunches on the beach with a bikini underneath. 

Here we break down the different elements that you should consider when buying a white shirt.

The Material

A white cotton shirt is a breathable staple that can be dressed up or down. It is cool in the summer months and thin enough that it can easily be layered in the winter with chunky knits or jackets. As sustainability enthusiasts, we always make sure that we are buying organic cotton shirts so that we know we are being as good to the environment and its people as possible.

A leather white shirt is also a great investment. With a bit more edge, it can smarten an outfit, effortlessly.

The Style

A white shirt can come in many different shapes and sizes. There are long-sleeved shirts, shirts with buttons, collars and ties. Some are short sleeved and many can be worn all the way to the top, or open at the neck. Tucked in or with sleeves rolled up, we even have shirts with removable leather epaulettes so that you can easily wash them in an environmentally friendly way.  When picking your white shirt, think about what you want to wear it with, and where. This will help you to invest in the right piece for you.
