Shirts for Men: 16 Summer-Ready Button-Up Options to Wear All Season Long

Apparently, men’s psychedelic camp shirts are a common sign of warm weather. Where the changing yellow and amber tones of the leaves herald the arrival of autumn, the entrance to summer is marked by palm tree-print campers that open collars to bare collarbones. Over the past few years, there’s been a constant onslaught of spicy camp shirts, and obviously we’re here for that… but we’re also partly to blame for the ridiculous scale of the phenomena. For many, it’s an easy road to a great summer. For others, it becomes a fashion crutch. And while we’re not asking you to ditch all your camping shirts, we to be says there’s more to a warm-weather wardrobe than buying a handful of them and calling it a throwaway. As a gentle reminder/begging from your fashion buddies, here are four other shirts for men that you should consider instead of your trusty turtlenecks.

Buttoned shirt

Remember those simple button-down shirts? If you’re forced to wear them to the office, you’re probably whining. But you shouldn’t be! Because the tried-and-true button-down shirt is a lot more versatile than you think — and you can wear one out of your closet. Buy one in a larger-than-usual size and wear it with baggy chinos and flip-flops for a little fun while skipping school. Tie it around your waist for that ’90s moody feel. Wear short sleeves over some soft swimwear. Or try wearing it as a light layer when the evening cools down. There are countless ways to style a button-down shirt, none of which involve anything close to a camp collar.

Sheer shirt

Good news: the hottest version of yourself is also the easiest way to stay calm. We are talking about all manner of sheer shirts. Mesh, lace, crochet — we love them all. They are a great way to show off your body, your gown or your jewelry or your unhidden piercings. Sure they’re tantalizing, but the extra airflow makes them more than just a hot car.

Linen shirt

A linen shirt sounds totally functional. But aside from the obvious cooling properties, there are plenty of great options out there (including, yes, a huge variety of camp collars). Size up for a loose, voluptuous figure and pair with some loose, lightweight pants and you’ll look pretty much at home among the locals in Mykonos.

Western shirt

Thanks to the buttons, Western shirts are a great way to add some extra rock without wearing any jewelry. Choose a light chambray version for more breathability or show off a cowboy vibe with some ripped jeans. But since it’s the summer wear we’re talking about here, try wearing one with shorts and a pair of mules for a surprisingly cohesive fashion combo.
