Printed camp collar shirts — characterised by their lack of collar band, short sleeves, and straight-cut fit — were amongst the most popular trends last summer, and we’re not ready to let it go. In fact, not only is the men’s camp collar shirt still going strong for 2017, designers seem to be having as much fun as ever creating prints and patterns for the casual summer go-to piece. Scroll down for a few basic tips on how to style them, followed by 10 of our favourite printed camp collar shirts for you to add to your wardrobe this summer.
To achieve this look, pick a colour from your printed shirt and match it with a pair of trousers in the same colour but in a different shade, then layer a plain t-shirt underneath your shirt for an interesting contrast. Finish the look off with a pair of sandals for a casual holiday vibe.
