If we could, we would probably wear tees and jeans to the office every day, but let’s be real, most companies in Singapore frown upon that attire. If you don’t fancy wearing dresses every day, you can still wear a shirt and look like a Korean celeb. Here are 10 ways.
1. Song Hyekyo
Tone a printed top down with neutral shades like white and black for a professional vibe.
Experiment with sleeveless turtleneck items under slip dresses to build layers and interesting details.
3. Jessica Jung
It’s all in the details! Go for bell sleeves or bat wing sleeves if you realy want to wear a casual looking shirt to the office. It’ll add an interesting detail and won’t look too informal.
Think a plain white work shirt and jeans is too boring? A fashion rule we’re always abiding by is to add a third piece. Whether it’s a thin jacket, a statement belt, or a vest, a third piece makes it seem like you’ve thoroughly thought through your outfit.
In Krystal’s case, she’s added a bandana-style scarf and we love it.
The key to standing out in an otherwise plain white work shirt is to go for one with interesting details, no matter how subtle.
For Ailee, she went for sheer panels on her sleeves.
If you’re into the preppy look, layer your white shirt under a chic sweater.
High collars are in, as Yoona proves!
If you want to wear a slip dress to the office but don’t think it’s very office appropriate? Layer it over an office work shirt for instant style points.

Tuck your white shirt into dark jeans on casual friday for a look that screams #girlboss.

When opting for cute prints or designs, go for a white shirt to give off formal vibes.
