# 1 Black Pencil Skirt

Style Tip: To make it little more professional (Business Casual), instead of a loose t-shirt go for a fitted one.

#2 With Business Trousers

Style Tip: Don’t forget your heels with this look for maximum effect. If you will wear a solid color tee instead of prints, it will take the professional element up a notch.

#3 Bright Colors

Instead of the black pencil skirt, replace it with a brighter skirt. Also, only wear a fitted tee with this one since you are already experimenting with color.

Style Tip: Don’t forget t.o add a statement necklace to your look.

#4 Similar Hues

You still take a pencil skirt but match its hue with your t-shirt or take a similar hue. But stick to neutrals and pastels when it comes to this look. Yellow pencil skirt with a yellow tee is not for work!

Style Tip: To brighten up your look contrast your footwear or put on a bright lipstick.

#5 With a Blazer

Instead of a button down and blazer, make it a tee and blazer for work. Now you can pair the two with jeans but stick to black, white, deep grey but not blue if you want it to look professional.

Style Tip: A belt and a watch are the perfect accessories for this look.

#6 With a Suit

When button downs with a suit are too professional and dressed up, let tees come to your rescue. Now, whether it is going to be a pant suit, a skirt suit or a short suit will depend on your office environment.

Style Tip: You can give the printed tees or classic Breton stripes a shot here. Ditch the basic solid colors

Some Don’ts of wearing a t-shirt to work

For obvious reasons, there are some Don’ts that are more or less applicable to almost all offices

  1. Make sure the t-shirt is not transparent / see-though. Some t-shirts just are and even when you wear a seamless bra it is visually clear where the cup ends. That sort of t-shirt is not for work.
  2. Offensive prints or quotes – It is needless to say your “Fuck everything” t-shirt will not work at the workplace. No brainer right?
  3. A crew neck t-shirt is usually not revealing, but V-neck may be or a scoop. Make sure you do not reveal too much when in a tee. But yes, cleavage norms differ from workplace to workplace at times, so you can analyze them on your own pretty well.
