Let’s face it, dressing for work can get dull. It’s the same old story day after day: pencil skirt and blouse – maybe a pair of tailored trousers if we’re really pushing the boat out – and a classic trench while it’s still cold outside. How, then, are we so often running late to catch the train to work? Accessories, that’s how.
Jewellery is a great accessory to enhance any boring outfit and to highlight what you really want to show. You may dress to impress at work, but accessorising your look sensibly is what adds up to make a lasting impression.
Use our tips on how to carry jewellery off at work and bling on ladies!
1 Enhance, not exaggerate: Garnishing your outfit with subtle jewellery helps the tones and structures of an outfit standout. With the right amount of accessorising, it also makes sure jewellery doesn’t overpower your outfit in any way. Keep it elegant and sleek with minimal jewellery. It could be delicate diamond studs or pearls for those who want to explore less expensive options.
2 Infuse your personality: Statement pieces can be achieved with simple jewellery like studs, rings, bracelets and necklaces. Layering two simple chains, adding your favourite charm pendants to bracelets, nice cufflinks and brooches to go with your shirt are all out-of-the-box ideas which are all a clever injection of your interests.
3 Less is more: When it comes to work jewellery, minimal is good. And for all the working married woman who don’t want to quit wearing tanmaniyas (mangalsutra) to work, there are tanmaniyas available these days which are stylish and sleek and don’t look over the top.
4 Say yes to patterns: Complement the everyday go-to ring with a midi ring, a perfectly-fitted bracelet and carry an intricately designed office bag to add a touch of oomph.
