The carefree, breezy styles that the warmth of summer affords disappeared out of sight all too quickly, but that doesn’t mean you have to retire the more fun components of your wardrobe completely. Of course, we'll be layering up and hiding our shirts and tees away while we're outside, but when you do get a chance to show off what's underneath, you need to make it count big. Big graphics usually translate to big impact, and that's what we're diving into today.
As already mentioned, you need to pack a punch with the base layers during fall and winter, so we’ve rounded up some of our favorite button-down eye-catchers with the help of MATCHESFASHION.

Saturdays NYC Canty Geoblock-Print Lyocell Shirt
Graphic button-downs don’t always have to shock. This low-key number from Saturdays NYC employs a smooth beige and natural color palette for pared-back simplicity. The Cuban-collar shirt is crafted from lyocell, an eco-friendly alternative to high-quality cotton made from wood pulp.
Our Legacy Box Shirt
You might be used to a heavier dose of disheveled grunge from Swedish masters Our Legacy, but this floral shirt does still carry the label’s signatures in the form of premium materials and proudly relaxed fit.
Nipoaloha The Hundred Beauty Printed Shirt
Drawing inspiration from Utagawa Tokoyuni’s 19th-century woodblock-print series ‘One Hundred Beauties from Famous Places in Edo’, Nipoaloha’s The Hundred Beauty Shirt is like the most stylish ‘Where’s Waldo’ you’ve ever seen. The traditional Japanese print sits on lightweight Japanese poplin with mother-of-pearl buttons as a luxurious finishing touch.
Aries Marble-Print Western Shirt
It’s bold, but we don’t expect anything else from Aries at this point. The label based around punchy graphics offers up this bright overshirt for FW20, featuring a smooth, pink, red, and white marbled print. Resin snap buttons and chest flap pockets give this piece sweet Western flair.
Endless Joy Centaur-Print Shirt
Endless Joy’s Centaur-print shirt is cut to a boxy fit which makes it perfect for layering over a tee. Opt for a white tee underneath to emphasize the bold, white-on-black illustrations that detail the shirt.
Bode Hand-Painted Landscape Silk Shirt
In the arena of graphic button-downs, Bode is super there with the heaviest hitters. The label’s homemade aesthetic is instantly recognizable and relies on premium craftsmanship and materials. This hand-painted silk shirt will transport you to the quaint landscapes of designer Benjamin Bloomstein’s upbringing.
Casablanca Alchimie-Print Silk-Twill Shirt
Casablanca’s Mediterranean health-club style has never looked so luxe as with this bold, pure silk shirt. An Italian courtyard and snowy mountains grace the front while the reverse features an astronomical-style vista.
Gucci Zodiac-Print Cotton Shirt
Taking cues from Persian rugs of the early 1900s, Alessandro Michele does what Alessandro Michele does, giving this super relaxed-fit shirt an extended body, deep Cuban collar, and faded vintage colors. A combination of acetate and cotton gives this shirt great texture and allows it to drape gracefully.
Martine Rose Portrait Paisley-Print Shirt
Taking inspiration from ‘90s clubwear as well as London’s Jamaican community, Martine Rose’s FW20 collection is all but quiet. This shirt combines hits of modern insignia with vintage-style portraits and an intricate floral motif all sheathed in a pixelated veil.
11.11 / Eleven Eleven Circle-Dyed Organic-Cotton Shirt
11.11 has made a name for itself partly thanks to its commitment to using indigenous cotton and pure, natural dyes. It shows with the Circle-Dyed Shirt cut from organic cotton. The indigo dye has an authentic, slightly washed visual which cannot be mimicked by modern dyeing techniques.
