The graphic summer shirt has had a veritable glow-up since its 90s heyday, helped along by Prada shirts with Guy Fieri style flames and Casablanca's lavish silk designs. Trying to distinguish between high-fashion summer collections and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas fancy dress has become increasingly difficult, and it's not a look that everyone is able to get right.

One person who has proven he can make it work, however, is Seth Rogen with his new platinum-colored trim. Relaxing with a cigarette and a coffee, he was recently snapped in a laid-back summer look which shows how you can let a graphic shirt do the talking.

He paired together simple pair of chinos in a matching brown hue, slip-on white shoes, a single colorful necklace, and voila — it's as easy as that.

And if you need more proof that less is more when it comes to summer shirts, just take a look at Tyler, The Creator. Since sporting a flame-print Golf Wang shirt for the cover of his third studio album Cherry Bomb, he has pulled out countless outfits with statement graphic shirts.

Those who, like me, obsess over the American artist's style will know that his current personal favorite is a blue floral-print Hawaiian shirt.

Throwing a Hawaiin shirt on with a pair of shorts and sandals is something of a ritual when the weather peaks, but the musician has proved the style is more versatile than just being a piece of summer vacation wear. Dressing his up with a two-piece black suit and loafers, it's a look that can extend far beyond the warmest months using the simplest of wardrobe essentials.

Check out some of our favorite graphic shirts to have dropped in recent seasons below, and see if you can make them work as well as Tyler or Seth Rogan.
