Unless you job demands it, I'd start with the opposite end of your body, which is your top. A nice blazer (especially with a pocket square) can quickly "formalize" any tee and jeans casual look. Throw in a polo or plain/gingham shirt to replace the tee and it will add more formal look.
From there you can add a tie (if you're wearing a shirt) and replace your sneakers with a leather shoe. Unless all you have are ripped jeans, it would be last piece I'd change. Most often than not, nowadays a lot of workplace have started to accept more semi-formal wear unless your job is strictly client facing.
Good advice. Id like to add that the fit of the pants would be important as well to give balance to your whole figure. Of course it depends on your body shape but if you are kinda more on the slim side, go for slim fits, it will draw more attention to your shoes too. For starters, you could try to get one off-shelf, great brands such as Uniqlo offer free tapering. Then later one, have them tailored to your specific fit.
