Sometimes I like to wear a colour t-shirt under my dress shirt instead of an undershirt. I do this in casual situations. I am wondering if there are rule for that like matching colours, shirt style or some other things?
Are there rules for wearing a colour t-shirt under a dress shirt?
Are you talking about a business casual dress shirt or just a casual button down? I really wouldn't do that with a proper dress shirt.
An exception would be a heavy, colored, crew-necked T-shirt with something like a flannel or chamois-cloth shirt. I think this is a nice cool-weather casual look.
Just my $.02.
Well I am not a fashion icon still I would like to suggest a few pointers for successful layering :-
Keep all your layers visible, choose a simple sleeveless cotton shirt that is practical and comfortable for under-layer.
Make sure that your outer hem is no longer than your inner hems as in most of the cases, it looks awful.
You can have lots of colors but choose one or two bright colors.
Lastly, scale your pattern from the lightest to the strongest.

I hope this might help!
The rule is: Don't do that, it doesn't look good. Exceptions to be made for shirts being used as insulating layers.
Except JSFrieschskys, you all made sense to me.
@ JLibourel I understand that wearing a bright colour t-shirt and open dark flannel shirt looks good. Is that what you're saying? Excuse me English is not my first language. I need to copy your words in Google to understand something.
@ elliekidston I'd use a body fit t-shirts with long sleeves shirts. When I do that I make sure there is clear contrast between the inner and outer layers. I don't do it for cold, just for style. Actually sometimes I received compliments on it. Not sure why most people here say it's awful.
