Head to a pub in London, Budapest or Lisbon on a Saturday night, and you'll see at least one stag group out on a "shit shirt" night. This stag do is basically a competition to see who can find the loudest, "ugliest" and most embarrassing printed shirt. But somehow, these "shit shirts" have become a surprising trend. Gold lamé shockers aside, we're rather into the brash, short-sleeved tropical-printed shirts that are all over Topman right now.
The key is to look for a boxy shape and a print so bold that it would make Iris Apfel's style look understated. Our favourite wild pick is a red Topman shirt featuring blue flowers and a psychedelic-looking panther. But it isn't just the hot weather that's making us turn to surfer apparel in a moment of (sweaty) desperation—Louis Vuitton and Vetements also created punchy printed shirts for S/S 18. Did we mention that this trend is so very Leonardo DiCaprio in Romeo + Juliet?
