If you want to elevate your work style without changing your entire work wardrobe, then a few well-chosen pieces of jewellery have the potential to transform your 9-5.
Look for timeless, trans-seasonal additions, such as a pair of sleek graphic hoop earrings or a modern, T wire diamond ring; a little gift to yourself to get you through those Monday morning meetings. The key to keeping it low key and professional is working with your existing dress code and simply adding some hard-working additions.
Here are the pieces we have on our radar this season, whatever your work persona desires…
Sleek, sharp lines, a statement bag and a no-nonsense approach to style calls for an unfussy, yet powerful, look. You need to look groomed and professional at all times and you wouldn’t dream of going into work without the perfect blow dry, manicure, and crisp, neat outfit that looks elegantly chic. Elevate your hardworking basics (those well-cut cigarette pants and that can-live-without blazer) with some well-chosen jewellery to soften up your style and make it a little personal, while still meaning business.
You’re more likely to be rocking cowboy boots and a leopard print frock with a cute pair of earrings than a plain black skirt suit. Even though you work hard, your look says ‘fun’ and because your job requires a flexible wardrobe, that works as easily for a meeting with clients as it does for drinks at the latest bar, it makes sense to opt for stylish pieces that you love, like a print maxi dress plus a standout blazer thrown over your shoulders. Experiment with statement pieces of jewellery that will take your look up a notch.
No-one in your office would be caught dead in a trouser suit, but statement cashmere and velvet slippers abound. Or perhaps you’re more of a classic jeans-and-white tee girl? Either way, up the ante with on point accessories such as stacked rings or pretty, yet modern pendants. Layer some chic yet cool jewellery to put your personal stamp on the look and make it work for any desk-to-dinner occasions that may arise.
