    Make a style statement at work with accessories

    You may be running out of options when it comes to accessories for making a style statement at office, but you may also be overlooking some accessories already in your wardrobe and in the form of presents that you could mix and match to turn the heads of your coworkers (they may perhaps even start to consider you a fashion icon at the workplace).

    Here are accessories that will usually be overlooked by some trying to project confidence at the workplace.

    Pearls
    You may have a string of pearls that you don’t wear anymore.  However, they can be easily pulled off at the office.  Pearls are the dandiest of jewelry – they are simple, elegant and make a statement that’s loud and clear.

    career fashion

    You don’t have any real pearls?  Do you have fashion pearls?  Your fake pearls can be as effective as the original ones.  You can put them on with a white or pink collar shirt and a grey suit.  If you have a long string of pearls, you can cut it up to size to make a necklace and wrist band, which will be very appropriate for the office.

    Diamonds
    Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and this statement is unlikely to change for decades.  You may have a unique diamond engagement rings like a three stone ring or a pair of earrings that you got as a wedding gift, but may not be using them at the office.  Well, it’s time that you start doing so rather than waiting for formal events or your anniversary.

    Perhaps try the earrings on a day and let your hair down just to see if anyone notices.  If comments stay limited, you can also tie your hair up so that they get more visible.  You’ll be surprised with the attention you receive (it’s also a good way to tell people you’re not available).  If you have a hard time keeping up with earrings, the ring will be more appropriate.

    Rings
    Rings never go out of fashion, but they have to be appropriate for the occasion.  You simply can’t walk into office wearing a huge imitation char coal ring, especially if you have an important presentation.

    office fashion tips

    Formal rings, like a tiny stone on a thin band are more appropriate for work.  Braided rings as well as plain metal ones also work well and add a little lady like sparkle to your hand.  On a day where you’ll be presenting and your hand actions will be complementing your verbal tone, don’t forget to wear a ring (even the engagement ring mentioned above would be appropriate).

    Brooches
    Women have toned down on the coat accessories.  However, wearing brooches isn’t the thing of the day anymore, but a style statement that can be louder than your wrist watch.  Just make sure your brooch is occasion appropriate.  A chic feather brooch, an English rose brooch or the jewel studded would look best for the office.

    office fashion tips

    Loud animal shapes or statement logos wouldn’t go too well if you’re in a serious corporate environment.  If you don’t have a brooch, you can take a trip down to a vintage or thrift store and hunt for a nice 2’’ by 2’’ brooch in rusty gold that will go with every color suit you have.

    Valentine’s Day office look – curvy style

    So, we just had a request for a Valentine’s Day outfit – in plus size.  The reader loved the dress featured in a previous post so she kindly asked us to scour for a similar dress.  This purple skater dress is a strong contender as it will give a flattering silhouette which is perfect for both work and play.
