Some seasons just lend themselves to a specific style. Obviously, you’ve got the inevitability of loud jumpers at Christmas or leather boots in winter. For spring and summer? Statement shirts should be on your mind and in your wardrobe. While autumn and winter are about function, comfort, and natural hues, spring and summer are about peacocking to the max. That means breezy cuts and eye-catching prints because if you can’t do it when the sun’s out, when can you?

There is, however, a misconception that statement shirts mean ugly shirts. Indeed, in the Venn diagram of statement shirts and ugly shirts, there is some overlap, but we’re steering towards the tasteful side of the two intersecting circles with the help of Nanushka, OAMC, Martine Rose, and more.

As always, with the bolder side of your wardrobe, it’s important to take care with styling. Frame your statement shirts with toned-down pieces to give them impact and avoid clashes. But you know that already. On to the shirts.
