How To Find & Keep The Perfect White Shirt

White Cotton Tee V Neck Basics Wardrobe Header

By now you know which jeans are necessary to have in your closet and which coat is fundamental for your wardrobe. But what about the most important staple you probably already own? It’s the white shirt, and it’s the most diverse piece you have in your arsenal. Pair it with a tea-length pleated skirt for a dreamy date night look, or tuck the front into your boyfriend jeans for a relaxed Sunday. Owning a white shirt is basically like owning the holy grail of basics.

Designer white shirts can cost you upwards of $100. As much as those shirts deserve all the bragging rights, you can still have that great looking, long-lasting white shirt - for a more reasonable price - just by making sure it's cotton. Cotton is easier to wash and care for than other fabrics, so you save time and money.

If you’re worried about keeping your fresh shirt pearly white for the long haul, then you’re in the right place. Immediate stain attention calls for rubbing detergent directly into it and pre-soaking the garment in cold water before washing. Other key things to remember: Be sure to wash your shirt with other light colors and lighter fabrics to keep the vibrancy. And most importantly, be careful with undiluted bleach, as it can cause cotton to yellow. Choose a less concentrated bleach solution instead.

Not only is it so easy to maintain, but it comes in so many styles for women that the possibilities are seemingly endless! The versatility of this staple is truly what makes it a must-have.
