I've done it but only with crinkly flowery shirts (sounds awful but I like it!) Thinks it's probably too casual for work though...

Worky? I think it would look wanky if you had a worky shirt tucked in.

There were pictures of alexa chung recently looking fab in shorts and shirt. Might work if you have the legs for it.

Yep I've done it with blue and White shirt and creamy silky shorts, I was told I looked very elegant by my hairdresser ;-)
