These come in handy for layering. I have bough several from H&M and Next. They fade after several washes and display white marks whereas my white tops are in perfect condition.

Any shop recommendations?

If they are cotton then re-dye them periodically. Dylon now do a machine dye which doesn't require salt as a fixative and can be used at 40 degrees.

Otherwise, wash them inside out at 30 or 40 degrees with laundry detergent suitable for coloured clothes. I find viscose mix jersey fabrics hold their colour better than cotton mix.

Are you using a colour care detergent? One designed for whites will fade black clothes very quickly.
