But as we see a lot of celebrities and designers experimenting with this simple outfit to make it wearable at any place, you can finally feel at peace as if you get the basics right, nothing can deter you from wearing a t-shirt to office in summers.

This clothing is especially meant to offer relief from the hot and humid weather. With a few styling ideas, you can perfectly rock this casual clothing item in the office and still manage to look sophisticated and ready for work. But let us remind you that you can’t wear just any type of t-shirt for work. You have to be a little choosy about the type of t-shirt you pick as your office wear. Never ever pick a shirt that is splashed with too many colors as it won’t go right with the office ambiance. Pick a shirt in neutral shades and prints for a minimalistic office look.

High waisted pants are a must-have in your work wardrobe. But you don’t have to pair it with a collared shirt or jacket all the time. For a change, why not wear it with a simple t-shirt? Teaming your T-shirt with high-waist pants instantly enhances the appeal of any plain looking T-shirt. For best effect,  pick a t-shirt in white color with a round neckline and short sleeves.

You can also add a nice single toned scarf at the neck to complete this pants and t-shirt outfit pairing. Make sure you tie it neatly so it blends well with the office environment.
