Warmer weather is finally upon us which means your weekends will include less and less binge-watching TV shows on the sofa and more doing things outdoors. And whether that means attending a party or a wedding (hello, wedding season!), going to brunch with your friends, or exploring a new neighborhood, dressing up appropriately is important.

Sure, it’s the weekend so you can give your suits a break, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have to make an effort to look your best, even if it’s your casual best. And a good sport shirt will do just that—elevate your favorite pair of jeans, or, just in general, add a bit of style to a relaxed ensemble.

Since days are getting warmer, opt for lightweight and airy linen and cotton, or a blend of both fabrics. Short-sleeve styles are, of course, a spring and summer staple but you can also roll up your sleeves. A man wearing a gingham shirt with the sleeves rolled up and a tie will always look incredibly handsome and well put together if you ask us.

Of course, we can’t talk about casual style without mentioning the all-American denim shirt. This classic piece should be in every man’s closet—it’s versatile, comfortable, and looks so cool.

Now check out some of the best and most stylish sport shirts to shop right now.
