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.

What these shirts provide is a statement piece that simplifies summer dressing. Once you've found your perfect graphic shirt, you needn't worry too much about what you're wearing elsewhere — all eyes will be on your standout shirting.

Check out some of our favorite summer shirts to have dropped in recent seasons below, from the more subtle to kaleidoscopic patterns.
