Forget Club Tropicana, and s**t shirt night down your local-printed shirts are coming back into fashion fast, and are being helped along the way by leading designers such as Farah, Ben Sherman, J.Lindeberg and Fred Perry.

Prints are a great way to work a high fashion piece into your wardrobe-especially if you're getting sick of seeing the same old thing every time you go to pick out what you're wearing. You can take things as steady or as crazy as you like, with prints from paisley to polka dots and floral to repeats, there's a printed shirt for everyone at Use a printed shirt to inject some colour into your look, whether you're trying to plan ahead for the Summer months, or after something to make you stand out from the crowd on a Saturday night-take a look below at some of our favourite pieces that are now online at, and find out how to maximise your wardrobe and get the best out of your printed shirt.

Floral shirts at

First up, it's the floral shirt. This can be a bit of an iffy area, with some gents thinking that it's something their Dad would be more inclined to wear...wrong. Keep floral in your wardrobe, and do it the right way. Don't go for the norm; try fresh, bright colours with shirts from Plectrum by Ben Sherman, or go for something with a varied texture with the likes of Pearly King. Wear your floral printed shirt with a crisp chino for evening wear, and don't be afraid to layer up with a plain blazer. A basic navy jacket will work well over the top of a brighter coloured shirt.

Left: We love the button down collar detail on this Plectrum by Ben Sherman shirt-wear it fully buttoned with skinny raw jeans and loafers for a smart, sharp Spring look.

Center: The variation in textures and materials set this Pearly King shirt off and make it incredibly easy to wear. Chuck it on with some chinos for one the easiest looks this season.

Right: If you're looking for something on the smarter side, look no further than this floral print shirt by J.Lindeberg. With a regular collar and tailored fit, it's perfect for mixing in with your formal wardrobe to give it a trendier look.

Polka dot shirts at

Polka dot adds a fresh spin on classic patterns-it's too easy to get overloaded with checks and stripes, so use dots to break up the normal every day routine. You'll find a dot pattern shirt to match any look at, from formal through to casual. Go for the likes of J.Lindeberg and Ted Baker for a formal edge perfect for dressing up with jackets and smart, simple knitwear, or go for something completely casual in a G-Star style. Alternatively, rock the classics and step out in Fred Perry. Button up to the top with skinny jeans and desert boots for a look Miles Kane would be proud of.

Left: We love the different collar shape and style of this J.lindeberg shirt-it's ideal for one of those awkward smart-casual occasions, and looks great with shoes and dark denim.

Center: This G-Star shirt is something completely against their normal ideas, but it looks wicked. The stiffer fabric makes it more casual, so team it up with your favourite jeans and sneakers.

Right: Rock this Fred Perry shirt day and night with anything that sits skinny on your legs and let the Fred Perry laurel do the rest.

Printed shirts at

Perhaps set to be the most popular style on the high street this year, printed shirts shouldn't be left out of your wardrobe in the coming months. There's a great range of short sleeved printed shirts at although you might not get a lot of wear out of them yet with this morbid weather, you will find that they make great pieces to layer up, or wear out on a weekend. Try a Farah shirt for something different, with sushi inspired prints and simple stripe patterns. Alternatively, inject some serious fun with a Franklin and Marshall Hawaiian shirt-not for the feint of heart, rock it with some chino shorts in Summer for a laid back stylish look.

Left: You don't have to have to have an affinity for caravans to get along with this Ted Baker shirt. Chuck it on with raw jeans and layer up with a navy blazer for a bit of contrast.

Center: A printed Farah shirt is a no brainer-goes with anything and looks amazing on anyone. Layer it up with a plain tee underneath then roll the sleeves together for an extra layer.

Right: Deep down, everyone loves a daft Hawaiian shirt. These aren't daft though, so in theory...Everyone should love this Franklin and Marshall shirt...right?
