Creating a closet of reliable staples isn't easy, but New York Company's collection of tops is a good place to start. Crafted from materials such as silk, cotton-jersey and breathable linen, the brand’s range has expanded to include blouses, shirts, T-shirts, long-sleeve and short-sleeve tops.
Available in both muted hues and more colorful options, New York Company crafts its tops from fabrics like lightweight linen, soft cotton and luxurious silk to ensure a high-quality finish to every piece. Wear yours casually with jeans and sneakers, layered underneath tailoring or tucked in with a skirt.
As cotton lacks natural anti-bacterial and odor-resistant properties, it requires more frequent washing. Cotton can sometimes be prone to shrinking when it is washed and dried, and to prevent this happening it is recommended to use water that is 30°C or below, either by hand or in the washing machine. This will help avoid color fading and dye transfer. Allow to air dry naturally, and give garments a gentle stretch to restore shapes as soon as they come out of the wash.
Linen is a reliable option to keep you cool in the Summer months. It can usually be washed by hand or in the washing machine, and will actually benefit by regular laundering as it becomes softer over time. Similar to cotton, linen has a tendency to shrink. We therefore recommend that you avoid cleaning the fabric in hot water, and instead wash linen in warm or cold water. Avoid bleach, fabric softener and wringing out. Linen is fast drying, and it is best to lay flat and allow to air dry. Store your linen garments in a cool, dry place, and avoid wrapping them in plastic.
Few fabrics feel as luxurious as silk, and in order to keep it in its original condition for longer, we recommend carefully following the care instructions found on each individual item’s label. Some silk products are strictly dry clean only, while others can be hand washed or machine washed on a gentle, cold-water cycle. If you do decide to hand wash silk, always use lukewarm water and a specific, mild detergent in order to protect the silk’s natural properties. Avoid spot cleaning silk, as rubbing in only one area can cause the material to lighten in just that spot. Silk should not be tumble dried, and instead can be laid flat to dry naturally. If you must wash in the machine, select a gentle, cold-water cycle, place in a laundry bag for additional protection and promptly remove from the washer to reduce any wrinkles. If the care label on your silk item says that it can be ironed, then use a low iron setting and ideally iron while it is still slightly damp.
