Now that the weather is reducing the number of components in our looks, the few pieces we do have on count that little bit more. Your top half is the place from which to make a statement, and a strong summer shirt is a piece that you'll truly get your wear out of when the weather is this warm.
With cost per wear taken into account, you might be willing to drop a few more dollars in this department. And with this in mind, we've picked out 10 highlight summer shirts from designer labels, including Needles, Loewe, and BODE to invest your hard-earned cash in. Available at MATCHESFASHION, options start from around $100, and reach beyond the $500 mark.

The Cuban collar shirt is synonymous with summer and every wardrobe should have one. This paneled iteration from Folk gives off slight Craig Green vibes, albeit at a significantly lower cost.
In collaboration with designer Benjamin Bloomstein, Emily Bode puts her hand to more clothing crafted from painstakingly sourced, but beautiful, textiles from across the globe for the new BODE collection. This stunning shirt makes use of Indian cotton.
More Cuban collar, and this time from Japan's Needles, which can seemingly do no wrong. The label's penchant for bohemian influences is on display once again here, with a shirt that features embroidered floral details.
Also hailing from Japan, NOMA t.d. is well known for its handmade graphics, from use of tie-dye to works like this floral display. A breezy option perfect for when you finally make it on vacation.
Palmer//Harding's striped stain shirt, crafted in Portugal, looks straight from a 1920s summer boardwalk fit.
Endless Joy founders Joy Alexandra and Stevie Anderson continue their appreciation of Indonesian mythology in a lightweight crepe shirt adorned with mythical creatures. A statement piece that will start conversations.
Loewe x Paula's Ibiza
We love pretty much all of the Loewe x Paula's Ibiza capsule collection, and that includes this absolutely wild graphic shirt, featuring vintage flyers from the Ibiza boutique's glory days.
It could be a while until we get to the beach, but who cares when you've got shirts as blue as the Caribbean ocean? Coming courtesy of the UK's Emma Willis, this piece is crafted from breathable linen, and built to withstand the heat.
Now, this is a highlight. New York's Eckchaus Latta comes through with a boxy-fit, jacquard knit option that offers great styling options. The combo of piped trims and geometric detailing make the shirt one that literally can't be missed.
Missoni goes wild here, reworking its signature zig-zag motif on a wavy item that would work well paired up with minimal pants and a pared back footwear choice.
