Why Poolside Camp Collar Shirts?

Poolside shirts are your new go-to button-up shirts made for kicking back, going out, and everything in between – no pool required. The biggest difference between Poolside shirts and the other Hawaiian shirts you already have is the camp collar. Made with a relaxed, open collar that’s designed to lay flat, camp collar shirts are as cool as they come, giving your look a retro vibe you’ll love.

How to Wear Camp Collar Shirts

Poolside shirts are made with a slightly wider, more relaxed fit than our button-up Resort shirts, making them great for layering and creating a laid-back summer outfit. 

Unbuttoned & Unbothered

The full button-up front on our camp collar shirts looks good unbuttoned and layered over a tank top or graphic tee. Wear your Poolside shirt with ripped jeans or cut-off denim shorts in a light wash for a classic summer look, and complete the ’fit with accessories like a necklace and baseball hat.

Dress to Impress

The soft, lightweight cotton blend makes the Poolside shirt an easy pick for warm days when you need to be comfortable but still want to dress to impress. Keep the look casual but cool by leaving your camp shirt untucked and wearing it with Trekker jogger shorts, or level up your date night outfit by buttoning it up and tucking it into khakis or cargo pants.

Top off the look with a bucket hat in a matching color, and add an athletic vibe with white sneakers.

Shorts ‘n Sweet

Made for hitting the beach and beyond, Poolside shirts look good with swim trunks (obviously!) and all your go-to summer shorts! Wear your camp collar shirt with cargo shorts for an on-trend look designed to carry ALL your essentials, or switch things up by wearing them with fleece shorts for an even more laid-back look.
