Meet the shirt you'll be wearing all summer

Pick up a trending resort shirt from R349 because Summer's on us

It's not important whether you call it a Hawaiian print shirt, aloha shirt, floral shirt, flirt shirt, going-out-shirt, Cuban shirt, vacation shirt, or our preferred nomenclature, resort shirt. All you need to care about is how the soft-collar, loosely structured shirt of the moment is a breezy addition to your summer wardrobe.

Consider this a lightweight, slouchier, short-sleeved and much more fun take on the traditional button-up. As well as the warm weather trend you'll want to spend all summer in. With enough range in the pattern and print department you'll be able to choose between florals, stripes and patterns that are currently crashing over the menswear market like a Tsunami. Pricing starts at a very reasonable R349, so you're able to pick up a few even if your bank account is at low tide. Then, because every brand is doing their version of this summer shirt, you're able to stick with your preferred brands and aren't required to plunge into the unknown (although, don't be a wuss, now's the perfect time to try something new, pal).

Take your pick of our favourite selects above, and either pair with: black jeans and clean white kicks, white jeans and sandals, a linen suit and loafers (summer wedding unlocked), trousers that pick up one of the colours on your shirt's print, or even make like Dirtbag Biebs and wear open over a T-shirt with cutoff shorts and beat up sneakers. Either way, use the resort shirt as a tool to express your identity, make it yours and live the holiday.
