In the seasons since Miuccia Prada gave the short-sleeved shirt a touch of off-kilter cool for SS18 (there was a mint green number emblazoned with spiders, natch), the bowling shirt has grown in popularity, with Ashley Williams, Balenciaga and Gucci all offering up their take on the style. And best of all, it's proving to be the most versatile piece in our wardrobe.
How so? Well, think of the numerous ways to style the boxy button-down: a French tuck into jeans, worn open over a slip dress, tied at the waist à la Britney in the "...Baby One More Time" video. The possibilities are endless, which is exactly what makes it perfect for summer – when the heat is high and the city is sticky, all you want is an easy, breezy throw-it-on-and-go outfit, without losing any of that sartorial pizzazz.
Ahead, we've found the coolest bowling shirts out there. Now it's just a case of asking yourself not 'which one?' but 'how many?' Strrrrrike!
