The best strategy is to not wear shirts with logos, printing, or pictures. I never have this problem with sports shirts. You are right in thinking that someone will always be offended about something. Since I work for the state, and I work in a school, there are strict limits on what can be worn as far as printing and logos.

"Shirts with potentially offensive words, terms, logos, pictures, cartoons, or slogans"
Yasmine...this could mean something to everybody. Someone is offended by something so picking the right shirt would be difficult in the best circumstances...like a President Trump t-shirt or one with an American flag. With football season approaching...wearing a Kansas City Chiefs shirt in Oakland can get you beaten up!
Just a little thought to think about. Otherwise I liked your guidelines.
Thank you.

This is not the MC311 CSC Dress Code, but a general overview of appropriate business casual attire.
Slacks, Pants, and Suit Pants
Slacks that are similar to Dockers and other makers of cotton or synthetic material pants, wool pants, flannel pants, dressy capris, and nice looking dress
synthetic pants are acceptable. Inappropriate slacks or pants include jeans, sweatpants, exercise pants, Bermuda shorts, short shorts, shorts, bib overalls,
leggings, and any spandex or other form-fitting pants such as people wear for biking.
Skirts, Dresses, and Skirted Suits
Casual dresses and skirts, and skirts that are split at or below the knee are acceptable. Dress and skirt length should be at a length at which you can
sit comfortably in public. Short, tight skirts that ride halfway up the thigh are inappropriate for work. Mini-skirts, skorts, sun dresses, beach dresses,
and spaghetti-strap dresses are inappropriate for the office.
Shirts, Tops, Blouses, and Jackets
Casual shirts, dress shirts, sweaters, tops, golf-type shirts, and turtlenecks are acceptable attire for work. Most suit jackets or sport jackets are also
acceptable attire for the office, if they violate none of the listed guidelines. Inappropriate attire for work includes tank tops; midriff tops; shirts
with potentially offensive words, terms, logos, pictures, cartoons, or slogans; halter-tops; tops with bare shoulders; sweatshirts, and t-shirts unless
worn under another blouse, shirt, jacket, or dress.
Shoes and Footwear
Conservative athletic or walking shoes, loafers, clogs, sneakers, boots, flats, dress heels, and leather deck-type shoes are acceptable for work
Hats and Head Covering
Hats are not appropriate in the office. Head Covers that are required for religious purposes or to honor cultural tradition are allowed.
