Shirts & tees to the rescue

The most basic and safest option is to go for the staple white or black V-neck or round neck t-shirt which can be paired with almost anything & everything. You can also go for a white polo t-shirt with black cuffed chinos for a casual yet sporty look. If you want to take it a level higher, you can try layering the white tee with a black and white checked flannel shirt on top or you can opt for black and white printed graphic tees with denims look for effortless style. A crisp white Chinese collared shirt paired with black chinos is ideal for a clean and smart business casual look.
