The 10 Best Men's shirts

view gallery VIEW GALLERY

From Hawaiian prints to pale pastels and florals, this season’s top shirts are light, bright and, above all, fun

1. Marks & Spencer

£25, marksandspencer.com

If floral prints are too busy, then a 1960s geometric print is a welcome alternative. This would look great contrasted with bright trousers.

2. Beams Plus

£115, mrporter.com

You may not be familiar with this Japanese brand, but it offers a clever mix of artistry and a preppy American aesthetic. This pastel shirt boasts a Sixties button-down style.

3. Rag & Bone

£130, mrporter.com

Nothing says casual like a Hawaiian shirt. This print is pretty special, with high-rise beach condos and palm-tree prints, evoking balmy summer nights by the sea.

4. Christophe Lemaire

£260, thecorner.com

Large floral prints flourished this season, making their most striking appearance across shirts. Tone down this print by wearing it with plain jeans or chinos.

5. Raf Simons

£175, mrporter.com

An impeccably cut white shirt should be part of every wardrobe. This slim-fit one, from Raf Simons, is a reissue from his seminal 1995 collection. A wardrobe classic.

6. Paul Smith

£95, thecorner.com

Paul Smith is known for his love of exuberant prints; very of the moment. This Hawaiian shirt is in the pastels of the season, neatly nailing two trends.

7. Asos and Mario Hugo

£35, asos.com

Asos's collaboration with It's Nice That magazine showcases five artists' take on the Hawaiian shirt. French born Mario Hugo's interpretation has a slightly surreal edge.

8. Oliver Spencer

£99, oliverspencer.co.uk

The trend for pastels can be tricky to mix with an existing wardrobe. Opt for this pale yellow, it's the easiest one to wear for spring.

9. Topman

£26, topman.com

Keep it casual with a short-sleeved shirt, like this one from Topman. Pull on a warm sweater and wear it now. When the sun shines, team it with navy chinos and desert boots.

10. Jonathan Saunders

£250, thecorner.com

Exceptionally well made, this two- tone white and azure design has an "Italian collar" – meaning the spread is wider, leaving additional room for larger tie knots.
