The winter to spring shift is a time for rebirth, especially this year. When it comes to the wardrobe, it’s all about having the right tools in place to adapt to changing weather and conditions. Our Spring Style Toolkit is here to help.

The optimism around this year's transition to warmer weather isn't just about the weather, for once. I don't need to tell you what I'm hoping for, but your fingers are probably as cross-sore as mine right now. Spring wardrobes always revolve around regeneration and 2021 is as good a time as any (or ever) to shed your homebound skin and emerge into the light with a bright new look in tow. Enter - the statement shirt.

Each season, fashion houses and streetwear brands alike usually include at least one statement shirt in their menswear collections. Something that'll hold the attention of the press and the people. Think Prada Frankenstein's monster camp collars or a guaranteed-every-season standout shirt from Our Legacy.

You don't have to switch things up as fast as fashion labels, though. We've picked out 10 of our favorite statement shirts that are worthy of your investment and ready to wear for spring, summer, and well beyond. From BODE to Casablanca, these are the pieces that you'll be truly seen in — once your government permits it.
