We’re all on the lookout for stylish shortcuts – those unfailingly easy pieces that can be counted upon to come together at a moments notice.
The White Cotton Shirt.
I know, I know… fashionable types are always throwing the words ‘essential’ and ‘white shirt’ at you
And the ironing! And the whole keeping-it-white thing!
The trick that I’ve learnt (apart from the wonders of Napisan and spray starch) is to not limit yourself to just one, or even two. You need a handsome stash of these wonders on rotation – a veritable crisp cotton army that you can pair with denim shorts, tailored pants, roll-necks and overalls alike.
And most of all, don’t keep it simple. A classic white button down is fine, but the best styles flirt with shirting-convention: a diagonal placket here, an extended cuff there and pleats, tails and ruffles aplenty.
Now, go forth and start stashing!
