Tips on Trend Led Dressing:
This season, it’s the perfect accompaniment to the Heritage trend. Pair it with a perfectly cut checked trouser suit, or layer underneath a wool pinafore dress. Accessorise with sturdy walking boots or brogues for a down to earth look.
Tips on caring for your organic cotton shirt: With the right care your shirt should last years.
– Wash your whites with other whites. It goes without saying but it really helps to avoid your shirt from becoming dull.
– Soak dull white’s in lemon water. Add several slices of lemon to a pan of water and bring to the boil. Soak until the water cools then launder as normal.
– Add 1/2 cup of any of the above to a normal wash. Then hang out to dry in the sun to make the most of its natural bleaching power.
– Replace missing buttons and repair fraying hems to ensure longevity.

This relaxed-looking Bamford shirt is inspired by the classic Indian style where it’s crafted: it’s a versatile top that can be worn alone or layered with a sweater. Paired with skinny jeans and ballerinas, there’s nothing chicer than this!
