The Best Spring Shirts for Men to Shop Right Now

The weather is finally warming up (in some places more reluctantly than others), so it’s time to start thinking about what amendments you need to make to your go-to button-down shirts. You have your basic office white and blue covered (we hope), but what about Friday through Sunday? Sure, you can wear you business shirts for weekends away, but that’s a quick way to fray cuffs and collars and add a potential pit stain to the mix. Keep them clean and keep them in the closet — spring calls for a shirt that falls somewhere between flannel and linen. These five spring shirts fill that void with soft, tailored perfection.

Best Spring Shirt to Shop in 2019

Haspel Audubon Blue Tonal Flower

A subtle white floral pattern makes this Haspel dress shirt a fantastic pick for spring. If the cheeky blooms aren’t enticing enough, the top’s delicately crisp texture and breathable cotton construction are sure to seal the deal. Pair with dark jeans for a dressed-up look ideal for happy hour or a promising first date.

Untuckit Mezzacorono Navy Blue Performance Check

If a checkered shirt’s more your speed, consider this beaut from Untuckit. An array of brilliant blues pop off a white background, creating a look that’s as bright and sunny as you are. As far as outfit recommendations go, I think this top would work just as well with khakis, chinos, or jeans, making it a versatile pick for the season. Plus, it’s outfitted with moisture-wicking fabric, so is guaranteed to stay dry no matter how hot it gets.

Mott & Bow Slim Button Down Collar – Kent in Dark Blue

Sometimes, simple is the way to go, whether you’re running to a friend’s outdoor birthday party or brunch-hopping with your buds. In those cases, I’d say a button down like this one from Mott & Bow makes for the best pinch hitter. Lightweight, breathable, and slimming, this classic shirt is bound to make a lasting impression with almost zero effort on your part.

Taylor Stitch The Jack in Army Everyday Oxford

The Taylor Stitch Everyday Oxford is a straightforward top featuring organic cotton, a button down collar, and a pleat-free surface for easy ironing. These elements together create a shirt that’s airy, fashionable, and downright cozy. Though I wouldn’t recommend wearing this shirt every day (although, like, you could), I do think it would work in almost any setting, from casual Fridays at the office to movie dates with bae.

Portuguese Flannel Linen Shirt

Nothing says warm weather quite like a crisp and breathable linen shirt, so of course, we had to include one here. Of all the linen tops out there, this option from Portuguese Flannel is our favorite because it is super soft, collar-free, and only very slightly structured. A little more casual than some of the other tops on this list, we’d save this bad boy for lazy afternoons at the park or meandering walks in the sunshine.
