So We're Buying "Sh*t Shirts" From Topman—Hear Us Out

We might be based in the U.S., but that doesn't mean we aren't interested in what's happening across the pond, which is why we tapped our UK editors for the items the fashion world is freaking over at this very moment. Find out which weird trend Emma, one of our UK editors, says is buzzing in London right now.

Head to a pub in London, Budapest, or Lisbon on a Saturday night and you'll see at least one stag group out on a "shit shirt" night. The bachelor party is basically a competition to see who can find the loudest, "ugliest," and most embarrassing printed shirt. But somehow, these "shit shirts" have become a surprising trend. Gold lamé shockers aside, we're rather into the brash, short-sleeved, and tropical-printed shirts that are all over Topman right now.

The key is to look for a boxy shape and a print so bold that it would make Iris Apfel's style look understated. Our favorite wild pick is a red Topman shirt featuring blue flowers and a psychedelic-looking panther. But it isn't just the hot weather that's making us turn to surfer apparel in a moment of (sweaty) desperation—Louis Vuitton and Vetements also created punchy printed shirts for S/S 18. Did we mention that this trend is so very Leonardo DiCaprio in Romeo + Juliet?
