While March is normally bitterly cold and layering is still very much the name of the sartorial game, the UK bizarrely experienced a minor heatwave at the weekend, urging both males and females to reach into their wardrobe for fair weather attire. In London, at least, there were plenty of guys rocking shorts and tees, while girls followed suit with sandals and sun dresses. Of course, this may not come as a surprise, given the reputation us Brits have for stripping off as soon as we see the slightest glimmer of sunshine, but it’s still probably too early in the year to pack away that parka jacket, right?
Here’s the predicament we’re facing: invest in more winter pieces that we’ll be packing away in a few months or stick two fingers up at the weather and start copping spring pieces already? We’re more inclined to go with the latter given our recent influx of spring arrivals over the past few weeks. So while treating yourself to a pair of shorts might be excessive side at the moment, there’s no harm in planning for the warmer weather and injecting some life into your current winter rotation in the process. In case you wondering what we’re on about, we’re talking T-shirts. Yes, that wardrobe staple has been arriving in droves recently and we can’t wait to tell you about them, so we’ve picked out 10 of our favourites that we think you should snap up!

1. SYSTVM Zone Long Sleeve T-shirt
Long sleeve tees have been huge over the past few seasons and if you’ve seen any of the recent fashion week street style shots you’ll know that this kind of monochromatic futuristic design from SYSTVM is bang on-trend.
2. Le Coq Sportif Tricolores Anglin T-shirt
Le Coq Sportif dip back into the archives for their SS15 collection and the classic understated design is exactly why its proved popular so far. Team this tee with some tailored khaki shorts and a pair of white canvas plimsolls when the summer arrives.
3. Selected Fairfax Short Sleeve T-shirt
Selected’s Scandinavian-inspired aesthetic is what’s really set them apart in recent years and their venture into graphic tees sticks with that same sort of minimal vibe we’ve come to love from them. If you’re after low-key graphic prints then look no further.
4. Religion Oil Wash T-shirt
While Religion are known for their black, white and grey gothic prints, they’re also not afraid to dash in the odd pop of colour once in a while which is true of this washed-out iteration that we guarantee will look ace with some stonewashed denim shorts and a pair of white Chuck Taylors this summer.
5. Only & Sons Mar Stripe Crew Neck LS T-shirt
Even if you’re not partaking in any nautical-related activities you’ll still look effortlessly cool if you grab this Only & Sons long sleeve and team it with some slim fit dark denim jeans and a pair of dark brown boat shoes.
6. SONS Split and Tapes SS T-shirt
As much as east London brand, SONS ace it when it comes to big bold prints, they’re also capable of going for a more subtle approach as evident with this oversized tee with understated SONS seam taping. Pair this with a pair of black joggers and some all black suede sneakers.
7. Vans Trick Ave Raglan 3/4 Sleeve T-shirt
This old school-inspired 3/4 sleeve T-shirt from Vans is just the sort of thing you can imagine skaters wearing as carving their way through Californian streets in the 70s to have worn. Keep things authentic by wearing it with some straight fit Dickies and a pair of Vans Authentics or Old Skools.
8. G Star Grove T-shirt in Camo Print
Camo might not be everyone’s bag, but we’re pretty sure this monochrome version from G Star is one that could convert the non-believers. When it comes to styling this statement piece opt for a pair of skinny or slim fitting black jeans and all-black high-top sneakers.
9. Eleven Paris AOP Biggie Bandana T-shirt
Celebrate the legacy of arguably one of the best rappers to ever do it and make a statement in the process with this allover Biggie bandana print tee. A great example of the in-your-face hip-hop inspired designs Eleven Paris have produced in recent years.
10. Farah Vintage Short Sleeve Crew Neck T-shirt
Say what you will about pink, it has a habit of cropping up season after season in one way or another. If pink chinos or knitwear are too much for you then this unfussy pink short sleeved T-shirt from Farah Vintage is the happy medium. Layer it under an unbuttoned Oxford shirt with some tailored navy shorts and white canvas plimsolls for a casual summer BBQ look.
