My casual summer looks are often complemented with this little tote bag from L.L.Bean. It’s such a simple and practical everyday bag. I like to tie a matching navy scarf to add an extra summery vibe. Mine is just the perfect size (small with regular handles) to hold all my essentials including my iPad, notebooks, makeup bag, iPhone, etc.
Wearing jewelry to the office can be done, but it needs to be done right. You can’t overdo your jewelry accessories when you are heading off to work, especially if there are rules in place regarding dress code, but you can properly accessorize any outfit and look professional if you keep it minimal and classy. Check out some of the ways that you can wear jewelry at the office by reading below.
Diamonds Are Always a Good Choice
Provided that they are not overly gaudy, diamonds are a fantastic way to show off your sophistication and style at the office. Keep it simple with some diamond accessories, such as a beautiful ring, a necklace with a diamond charm on it, or a pair of diamond stud earrings. You can even click here to start shopping for some new, high quality diamond accessories that will blend perfectly with any outfit that you would wear in a professional work environment.
Show Off Your Personal Style
Even if you have a dress code that you need to adhere to when you go to the office, you can still accessorize with some jewelry that will allow your personal style to shine through in a subtle manner. For example, while you want to avoid wearing really showy jewelry, you can wear an elegant statement ring, as well as stackable rings, that have features that show off a bit of your own personality. Other options include a pendant necklace or layered necklaces, brooches, and statement earrings. No matter what, make it a point to wear jewelry that makes a statement without making noise, so avoid bracelets that clink, as an example.
Less is More When It Comes to Jewelry
A simple way to accessorize without overdoing it, and a great way to keep your style on the more subtle side, is by just wearing just one piece of jewelry. However, if you are going to take this route, make it count by wearing a bold statement piece, such as a beautiful pair of earrings that frame your face or a statement ring with gemstones. Even a sophisticated watch that is not all that expensive could be the perfect accessory to a professional outfit.
Always Know the Rules of Your Workplace
Finally, know the rules of your workplace when it comes to wearing jewelry, as some offices may even have a policy that prevents you from wearing jewelry altogether or from wearing certain types of jewelry. If your office environment is considered smart-casual, you will probably be able to be a little more daring in your jewelry choices, but if you are working in a more conservative office, your jewelry likely can’t be showy or showcase any political or religious symbolism either.
By following these easy rules and suggestions, you can accessorize your work outfit beautifully with some of your favorite jewelry that you will be proud to show off to your co-workers. Just remember to stick with a few pieces so that you can keep it simple without overdoing it.
