A white shirt is always a clean go to when you need a smart smart casual get up, but the summer weather makes it uncomfortable and inefficient; the solution we’ve found is the right materials to go with the right fits, light weight relaxed shirts keep you cool and stylish no matter where you are.



1. John Lewis Floral Cuban Car Shirt
2. BOSS Orange Cattitude Textured Linen Slim Fit
3. Reiss Harvey Pique Grandad Collar
4. Thomas Pink Mortimer Texture Classic Fit Button Cuff
John Lewis has given a nice look to this regular fit, smart casual shirt; the floral design is subtle and stylish but has a unique and eye-catching quality giving you the most options on what to pair it with. They’ve used a lightweight 100% cotton fabric that is always great for the summer letting your body breathe and also absorbs sweat, keeping you comfortable and regulated throughout the day.
A clean white, slim fit, short sleeve shirt by Boss Orange offers a sophisticated approach to a relaxed casual look. Being made from 100% linen is a plus for the summer as its known to be the lightest and most breathable fabric, ensuring you stay cool and dry, it also reflect the most heat and has a nice feel in all situations. Paired with some neutral or pastel coloured shorts or chinos will see you nicely through the summer.
From Reiss we can see the ever so popular Granddad collared shirt, a huge trend for outings and smart casual occasions. Fabricated from high quality cotton, which is again great for the current weather. Its slim fit silhouette is great for summer nights on a holiday or on a friendly meet up. This shirt is definitely an essential for your wardrobe this year. Whether you style it with some blue slim/skinny fit jeans on a more casual day or with some black slim fit trousers if you’re feeling the need to come across in more formal attire.
Thomas Pink are held in high regard with the quality and functionality of their shirts so it’s no surprise that this shirt is definitely a staple for every wardrobe. Suitable all throughout the year but it works especially well during the summer, the relaxed fit keeps you extremely comfortable through the day. Being a ‘washed linen shirt it will continue to get softer with every wear’ and stay breathable and cool for the best of days. Easy to dress up for more formal occasions with a pair of blue trousers and a knitted belt, perfect for out of office meeting or a family function.
