If there’s one big trend that’s happening in the summer of 2021 it’s printed shirts. The printed summer shirt is back, and is looking better than ever.

A good printed summer shirt is all about a huge all over printed pattern on the shirt. They’re loud, out there and anything but subtle.

As you’ll know I love the quiet, subtle and minimalist aesthetic when it comes to fashion. Timeless pieces and classic fits always look stylish. They’re everything that printed shirts aren’t.

But I am also a fan of trends, and summer fashion. Modern printed shirts are fashionable. The vibrant prints, crazy patterns and statement pieces, I love everything about them.

If you want to make a statement this summer, a printed shirt is the way to go.

Here’s some of my favourite printed shirts which are on trend this summer. From the affordable high street fashion brands to luxury designer labels. These are the best printed shirts you can buy this summer.

Pull & Bear Watercolours Shirt

The watercolours shirt from Pull & Bear is exactly what it says. The watercolour prints are tastefully done and presented throughout the entire shirt. A mix of greens, yellows and blues on the short sleeve shirt which is made of viscose. It comes in at £22.99.

Pull & Bear Palm Tree Print Shirt


Go to the beach without going to the beach. The palm tree printed shirt from Pull & Bear brings the beach to you, or your clothes at least.

Sand, sky, sea and a palm tree design gives you tropical vibes. Get it for £22.99.

Pull & Bear Landscape Print Shirt


Get the entire landscape printed across your clothing in this shirt. The print reminds me of a classic American desert scene. There’s the mountains, sky and some greenery too. Get this for £19.99.

Pull & Bear Night City Printed Shirt


I love a good night city printed shirt, and that’s what this is. The midnight sky in a purple blue colour, with a cityscape filled with large buildings with their lights on. It’s a cool printed shirt, and you can get it for £20 at Pull & Bear.

Pull & Bear have so many different printed shirts, you can check even more from their collection here on their site.

NN07 Miyagi Print Shirt


One of my favourite summer shirts I’ve seen in recent times is the Miyagi Print shirt from NN07 aka No Nationality. It’s blue and features an all over abstract printed design which looks like watercolours in blue.

I really like this short sleeve shirt which is made from lyocell and linen blend. Get it at NN07 for £120 here.

Stockholm Surf Club Vacation Shirt


This shirt from Stockholm Surf Club gives off some serious psychedelic vibes. The green, blue and purples swirls look out of this world, inspired from waves in the sea.

Grab this for £165 at END here.

Paul Smith Tagliatelle Print Vacation Shirt


This Paul Smith shirt is one of my favourite print shirts of the season. It’s blue in colour, and has polka dots throughout it, in a painted style. It’s made from organic cotton, with a summer camp collar.

Get it at END for £139 here.

Wacko Maria Nice Dreams Shirt


This printed shirt comes with some serious 80’s vibes to it. It’s printed with the iconic Cheech & Chong and bikini girls as seen from the film. Even if you have no idea about the film or it’s stars, it’s an iconic print.

This Made In Japan shirt comes at a cost, with the price being £399. Get it at END here.

Carhartt WIP Heat Wave Printed Shirt


The heat wave printed shirt from Carhartt WIP is a more understated shirt than the rest, but still has an all over slogan print. The words heat wave are printed all over the shirt, which is black.

Get it at Selfridges here for £90.

Palm Angels Paradise Printed Shirt


For some luxury style you can add the Palm Angels Paradise printed shirt to your wardrobe. Made in Italy, it comes with a large heart graphic printed to the front, on the backdrop of a tropical paradise.

This high end designer printed will set you back a whopping £540 which you can get at Selfridges here.

Dries Van Norton Graphic Printed Shirt

This graphic printed shirt from Dries Van Norton is a design shirt that really makes an impact. Printed with black, green and yellow in an abstract style, it’s a loud shirt that will make a statement.

Get this at Selfridges for £440 here.

How To Style A Printed Shirt

If you’re wondering what to wear with a printed shirt, they’re pretty easy to style. You can wear these with shorts, jeans or chinos, everything works. As these shirts are casual it’s very hard to get them wrong.

When it comes to how to style, I would recommend styling these shirts by wearing them open with a T Shirt underneath. Wearing a t shirt under the printed shirt give your look a bit of contrast, toning it down to just the right level.

You could consider a printed shirt a wardrobe essential for the summer. Wearing a plain T Shirt under these gives off a cool and airy look. Even though it’s an additional layer, it will still be cool in the summer heat.

All you need to do is make sure you get the colours right, and you’ll be stylish.

Michael 84 Says

And there you have it, the best printed shirts you can buy this summer. I think having at least one printed shirt for the season is a must have item. It’s one of those wardrobe essentials that you’ll want to have so you can add some variation to your outfits.

Whether it’s a loud and all over printed shirt with large graphic print, or perhaps a floral printed shirt, they definitely make a cool addition to your outfits.
