Whether it’s a festival, wedding or simply work you need to dress up for this summer, a patterned shirt is the cool menswear piece that can hold up in the heat. We pick out the best to buy now from Burton.

It’s officially summer, and though it may not feel like it just yet, it’s time to rethink our style for the oncoming heat - trust us, it’s coming (and if it doesn't, we’re booking ourselves a hot beach holiday pronto). Our fingers are tightly crossed and our eyes are firmly watching for the mercury to so we can finally reach into our wardrobes and pull out our favourite cool shirt and shorts combinations we've been itching to wear since last year.

If you're looking into said wardrobe and not getting much of a summer mood, we can help. When it comes to men’s summer trends, there are some styles that always signal a U-turn away from the colder months, whether it’s your cool linen trousers, lightweight loafers or the sleek beige chino shorts you have piled away. But there's one trend that stands out from the rest; the one item that sings of summer the loudest: the printed shirt. Arguably the coolest, easiest and trendiest way to bring those muted staples back to life, a good printed shirt should be packed with pattern and saturated with colour. Sharp stripes, Aztec prints, tropical Hawaiian florals and bright geometric designs are going to give your everyday wear that lick of paint they need this summer.

But don't go thinking that you need to be splashing out on designer pieces and trudging around town to find the hottest statement shirt of the season, because we’ve got some of the best - and affordable - right here, courtesy of Burton. Whether it’s a festival you’re off to, a wedding, or perhaps you need something to brighten up your everyday workwear, we've got a printed shirt for just about every occasion. So just sit back, relax, and let us do the styling for you...

Wedding Guest Shirt

Thought weddings were all about wearing boring suits and being on your best behaviour? Think again - at least for the former. Printed shirts are not only perfect for adding some fun to a wedding guest look, but are also great for all smart summerwear. Pair with a light cream suit and you're good to go. 

Workwear Shirt

Your new everyday work shirt has arrived - and it's giving your plain navy suits the burst of sunshine it needs. From bright colours to pale and interesting patterns, these shirts are going to be a hit in the office. 

Festival And Holiday Shirts

When you're prepping for your fun summer, make sure a tropical Hawaiian shirt is top of your to-pack list. Not only are they great for partying in fields, but they also do well on the beach when you're off on your annual lads holiday. Result.
