The humble men's T-shirt might seem like an easy piece to style here and there. But with a little guidance, it's an undisputed essential for any summer occasion. Here's to the ultimate wardrobe basic.

On Island Time

When you're on holiday, you basically take on a whole new identity. You enjoy shorts full-time now. You love a cortado. Bicycles are your only mode of transport. Wear a colour-pop tee in a zingy shade to suit your sun-drenched outlook – or at least to keep you cool as you wander around temples and ruins for the day.

Summer Nights

The sun’s out for longer: that means keeping in line with visually-appealing aesthetics, look to graphic tees and chino shorts. Monochrome makes a statement without feeling too OTT. It's minimal but still does the most without screaming "look at me", which is exactly what you want for easy-going summer evenings.

Summer in the Office

Keep it simple for a smart/casual code. A classic crew neck ringer tee will do. The contrast trim piping works for a *little* excitement. Just add smart chino trousers and plain white sneakers.
