With the drab months of winter colours done and dusted for another year, it’s time to embrace the sweet heat of summer and break out the fancy printed shirts. There are plenty of patterns and prints you can don in the heat, all of which fit in perfectly with the vibrant shades of summer.
Here, we’ll run down three types of printed tees: abstract prints, floral/psychedelic prints and finally the more subtle, easy on the eye prints. So without further ado, let’s check out some of our favourite summer prints.
Prints like the below options might seem more geared towards nights out, but they’re also great choices if you still care about looking smart in casual situations in the warmer weather.
Even better, on those cool summer evenings when you’re barbecuing with friends or hitting the town, these shirts are the perfect go to; smart casual, stylish and summery.

The more popular patterns for summer are definitely the vivacious floral/psychedelic designs; for the obvious reasons of fitting in with the colourful summer surroundings. Most printed shirts of this nature are not only varied in their colours, but also adopt brighter colour schemes.
This is both fashionable and practical given that brighter colours will reflect the sun and keep you cool in the heat.

Printed designs don’t have to be ‘loud’ on the eyes; there are plenty of more subtle style options when it comes patterned tops. The solid colour aspects of the options below really help the printed parts of the design to pop.
A perfect middle-ground for those who don’t like attracting too much attention with their clothing choices but still want to look the part this summer, subtle prints like these should, in our opinion, be a summertime standard.
