Whether it’s at a job interview, a promotion review or just coming to work, the fastest way to leave a good impression with your colleagues and your boss is to button up in a striped shirt. Not only does it instantly transform your look and gives you a more professional appearance, it is figure-flattering and keeps you looking slimmer. Furthermore, when the work week is over, you can always throw these shirts over a pair of denim jeans and your cute weekend footwear and still look stylish without going overboard. Here are 11 styles that we are loving, and are confident that your boss will love them too.
1. Shirt, $66.90, from Topshop
You can’t go wrong with a black and white striped shirt. Pair it with a pair of blue jeans for Casual Fridays or go for a more polished look with palazzo pants.
2. Shirt, $39, from Pomelo
The high neckline of this blouse exudes prim girlishness, so play it up with cool jewellery and a pair of no-nonsense pumps.
3. Shirt, $54, from Pomelo
Balance out this green shirt with a pair of white jeans and some cool sneakers.
4. Shirt, $79.90, from Mango
If you find the knot too distracting, undo it and tuck it into a high-waisted skirt for a less fussy outfit.
5. Shirt, $59.90, from Mango
Meant to be worn oversized, balance out the roominess of this shirt with a more fitted bottom, such as skinny pants or a pencil skirt.
6. Shirt, $39.90, from Bershka
Work a stronger colour to really stand out from your colleagues (great for conditioning your boss to think of you the next time a promotion opportunity shows up).

The textured linen material lends this shirt a more rustic feel, all while allowing you to freely move and function without having to fuss too much over the fabric.
