Hi folks

It’s the season to wear white. Even with the UK’s temperamental weather, we all have something white as a go-to summer staple in our wardrobes. Whether worn head-to-toe for a special occasion, or as a contrast, we all have a favourite white-coloured item, be that a crisp shirt, a pair of summer jeans, a cotton dress or accessories.


White can be worn with any other neutral for a relaxed, chic vibe.  But if it’s contrast you’re after, pair it with a bright, bold, vibrant colour such as pink, red or green. Choosing a textured fabric will often soften its appearance. For this week’s newsletter I’m bringing you my white shirt edit, categorised by good, better, best. I’ve organised these pieces by price and quality and I’ve tried to stick to natural, breathable fibres. In addition, I found a brilliant article, ‘How to Clean and Care for White Clothing’ by @thespruceofficial, on Instagram.  Here it is in full: https://www.thespruce.com/how-to-keep-white-clothes-white-2146392.


Here are their key pieces of advice in a nutshell:

1️⃣. Separate whites carefully

2️⃣. Avoid overloading

3️⃣. Choose the right detergent

4️⃣. Promptly treat stains

5️⃣. Wash with the warmest water possible

6️⃣. Rinse with vinegar

7️⃣. Check clothes

8️⃣. Dry on low.
