INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
ASOS INSIDERS DO SUMMER SHIRTS
By Steven Potter, 16 July 2019
Summer shirts: there's a lot of choice out there. So, whether your head's swimming in stripes or all those animal prints have got you feelin' wild, here's some inspo for you via our ASOS Insiders. Time to get shirty...
ASOS Lex specialises in timeless looks and that chevron number is no exception. Pairing his shirt with white shorts that make the most of that wavy design, he’s free to enjoy more candid fountain moments, safe in the knowledge that his getup is as lovely as the background that frames his snap. It's a look that’s suitable for virtually any summer event, from pub garden straight through to date night. Ideal.
With summer arguably the best season for curb crawling, we thought we’d rinse asos_joshua (our resident skate-style enthusiast) for some laid-back inspiration. Opting for a relaxed zebra print, he’s effortlessly jumped on the animal-print hype – a great option if you’re a little over rehashing the same florals every year. Teamed with matching white chinos and simple black sunnies, the only question mark is the beanie – but when it ties the look together so neatly, who needs practicality anyway?
Our man down under, asos_jono, is a bit of a style chameleon, loving everything from relaxed skater styles to sharp suiting with a rock 'n' roll edge – a man of many tastes. Speaking of taste, check out the juicy revere-collar option above. Jono’s given his look a 90s spin by pairing with a long-sleeve tee underneath, ideal for chillier festival/pub garden evenings. Now all that’s left to do is find a background that perfectly matches your entire outfit. We’ll leave that one to you.
Going stateside for this next look, lads. Souuiz is your man for plus-size and tall cuts – and what a cut this is. Nailing a frankly perfect smart-casual vibe, he’s opted for a statement shirt with just the right amount of colour to break up his tonal tekkery. With loafers and retro-style shades putting the finishing touches to the look, he’s solved the question on everyone’s lips this summer: can I wear a vibrant, fish-print shirt to a wedding? The answer is 100% yes.
Back to Europe now for a Parisian pick-me-up. ASOS Thomas is showing us that there really isn’t a wrong way to do stripes, but there are some particularly sweet ways to wear rep them as well. Take this ‘fit, sleeves rolled up for casual vibes, skater-style shorts (plus a webbed belt for extra authenticity), some fresh AF trainers and matching socks to finish it all off. You enjoy that stylish lean Thomas – you’ve earned it.
