At The White Company, our clothing ethos has always been style over fashion and quality over quantity. And, if it comes in white – even better. Getting dressed each day should be a simple affair, based around tried-and-tested staples that you come back to, time and time again, in fabrics so soft you’ll never tire of the feel of them against your skin.
Introducing our new Perfect Simplicity collection. A curated edit of pieces that transcend age, time and trends, make this your destination for capsule-wardrobe-worthy favourites: all in white, all in the very best fabrics.
After months of tweaks and refinements, we think these pieces are perfect just the way they are, so we won’t change them unless you tell us to. Read on to discover what makes them special, and how to style them now, later and forever.
Far be it from just a boardroom staple, a silk shirt can work in all manner of ways to add a luxurious spin to an otherwise low-key outfit. Cut from fluid silk crêpe de chine, our flattering longline style is vented at the back for a little extra volume and looks effortlessly chic worn loose over both our jeans and tailored trousers.
We firmly believe you can never have enough cashmere. Ours is spun from the finest Inner-Mongolian yarns to ensure both a wonderfully soft feel and long-lasting quality you can rely upon, season after season. Our V-Neck style utilises a lightweight 12-gauge knit – perfect all-year round – while side splits add movement to the sleek design. Style yours over your favourite trousers, or try it with a midi skirt this season for a stylishly slouchy silhouette.
The white T-shirt is a classic for a reason. From Brigitte Bardot to Jane Birkin, style icons over the years prove that the simplest looks really are the best. The key is to find a fit you love, in high-quality fabric that lasts (because you’re going to be getting a lot of wear out of this staple style.) We’ve put a luxurious spin on the just-so cotton tee, crafting it from pure Egyptian cotton – just like our bestselling bed sheets. How to wear? Any way you like, but blue denim is always fail-safe.
Where a silk shirt offers instant sophistication, we love the ability of a crisp cotton shirt to add an androgynous slant to day to day looks. It was so important to us to have a classic cotton shirt in our Perfect Simplicity range as they’re so endlessly versatile. In our Classic Fit shape, we think ours is just the right side of oversized, resulting in that sought-after flattering-yet-effortless look and feel. Partner with jeans now, and layer under a crew-neck jumper later.
