“The white cotton shirt is an essential for every woman’s wardrobe. It’s my go to piece when all else fails because it just goes with everything. I make it a point to update mine for every season. For work wear, I mostly pair it with a structured blazer and culottes. For daytime casual it’s great with white sneakers and a black biker jacket. Longevity of clothing is important to me, and white shirts need to stay as white as possible.” - True Love Editor: Jessica Ramoshaba
Every sensible wardrobe has at least one classic white cotton shirt. It’s a must have staple that can take you from daytime casual to dinner date chic in no time.
Store to Save:
Cotton is absorbent, so avoid storing it in plastic containers as they trap moisture and this encourages the growth of mildew. Store cotton hanging up or folded in your cupboard and be sure to air your cupboards monthly.
TIP: Cotton keeps you cool and dry in our warm climate, so it’s the perfect spring/ summer fabric.
SKIP’S TIPS TO KEEP YOUR FAVOURITE COTTON GARMENTS LOOKING NEWER FOR LONGER

- To effectively and easily remove creases, iron pure cotton while still slightly damp.
- Use SKIP Auto Powder with Fibre Care Technology, designed to penetrate deeply to thoroughly clean and care for every fibre.
