Investing in Fashion Staples, January 2016

In a world predicated upon hyperbole and myth, fashion lore has got one thing right: it's hard to overstate the power of a perfect staple shirt. Slipping into such a garment makes you feel exactly like it looks – fresh, sharp and twice as smart as you woke up. As noted shirt-wearer Tom Ford once observed
When I put on a white shirt, it's the same feeling as getting into crisp, fresh sheets at night.
Similarly, Sheerluxe say in their "12 Items You Should Invest in this January," that
Few pieces have the timeless appeal of a well-cut white shirt – it's one of those separates you'll wear season after season so investing in the best is a must.
So, if you're stuck with what to get (and now is the time to buy, ladies, because as part of our grand finale sale we're practically giving away shirts at $46!) If you're looking for timelessness, opt for a classic white shirt in a slim cut of the best quality you can afford. The cuff should reach just past your wrists and you should be able to fit one finger inside your collar (not two). Our Madelena does just the trick, as does our well-fitting Colleen.

Try our timelessly chic Tula or cute, loose-fitting Daniella. Screen Shot 2016-01-21 at 09.56.56 Screen Shot 2016-01-21 at 09.57.13 If you want something extra special, why not try a silk shirt? Charlotte is a stunning option! Alternatively, Isabella, Suzanna and Caprice all make for real statement pieces.

That's certainly true of our white shirt collection... So have a peek at what's on offer – all now at $46 – and see what takes your fancy! Shop Now
