We raided his sneaker wardrobe back in 2017 thanks to Balenciaga’s Triple S sneaker, we’ve dabbled in the occasional oversized blazer, and now we’re ready to enter a bold new ‘dad fashion’ phase, enter: The Dad Shirt.
It can often be referenced as ‘my good shirt’, the ‘holiday shirt’ or even the ‘I’m about to mow this lawn shirt‘. Whatever the occasion, these shirts have a few things in common being their iconically oversized fit, short sleeves and button-down front.
Every time they saw the light of day they were the cause of the collective family question, “Are you really going to wear that shirt?” But now let me show you why the ‘Dad Shirt’ is going to top your list of things to buy in preparation for Spring.
Swipe to see how these cool girls are breathing new life into the Dad Shirt trend.
Hold on to your shirts papa bears, we might need a loan.
THE HOLIDAY SHIRT
Speaking of that ‘Holiday Shirt’, here is a classic example of how the once considered ‘dad print’ is going to be your next seasonal favourite.
Wear it unbutton and loose over your swimmers as a cover up.

THE DINNER SHIRT
This shirt screams “I’m on holidays, been at the beach all day, the night is warm and I am ready to eat.”
Opt for a silky base, a logo print and neutral tones.

THE RECREATION SHIRT
This shirt is best worn when you’re running errands, daytime drinking, or at a beachside brunch.
Go for a lighter base colour with a softer print.

THE CLASSIC ANIMAL PRINT SHIRT
An easy wear print for every occasion. Dress it up in denim, or dress it down over swimmers.
A nod to ‘Dad’s on holidays’ the world round.
