Fashionable Guide to Accessorizing for Work

If you have a set dress code at your workplace, business attire can often be difficult to make stylish and fashionable. Even though black blazers and white button-downs might not be the most exciting pieces in the world, they can easily be elevated with a few simple accessories and made to look more modern and chic, without ever breaking the dress code. So, here is the ultimate guide to accessorizing for work in a subtle yet fashionable way:

Minimalistic jewelry items

If you work in a more formal office setting, it would always be best to opt for small, dainty jewelry, in order to follow the dress code, while still being able to express your personal style through simple details. Choose stud earrings in gold or silver, and just one or two subtle rings to match. If you like to wear men's bracelets, make sure they are thin and delicate, and never opt for more than one. While necklaces should also be thin chains with small pendants, you can always choose to layer two or three in various lengths to add some dimension and interest to your outfit.

Statement jewelry pieces

If your workplace allows for a more casual dress code, then playing with statement jewelry pieces would be an excellent idea. Whether you opt for bold droop earrings or at thick, eye-catching necklace, make that jewelry item the focal point of your outfit. Pair it with a muted, neutral ensemble, and only choose one or two small jewelry pieces to match, if you opt for any at all. After all, you’re still accessorizing for work, so you want to avoid looking overly adorned.

Elegant watches

When getting dressed, a big bangle might look great with your outfit, but it also might hinder your arm movements or simply make a lot of noise while you’re typing and doing other basic work activities. That is why it is always best to stick with beautiful classy watches, regardless of the dress code. Apart from being the most practical accessory for work, wristwatches also give you an air of elegance and sophistication, while also providing you with the opportunity to express your personal style through your choice of fashionable accessories.

Classy silk scarves

Whether you decide to tie it around your neck, wrap it around your bun or ponytail, or even attach it to the handle of your bag, silk scarves can easily add a touch of class and personal style to your work attire, making them the perfect office-appropriate accessory. As most corporate dress codes still call for dark or neutral tones, scarves are also ideal for incorporating a hint of color or print into your outfit, and adding some flare to your look, without overwhelming it or making it too striking.

Sleek leather bags

The bag you choose to carry with you when you walk into the office makes a strong statement about your intentions, as well as your personal taste and style. Even though it can be tempting to carry a trendy purse or a small cross-body bag, opting for a leather tote or a sleek handbag will do a much better job of delivering the message you want to convey. What’s more, if you invest in a good quality leather bag in a neutral color and a timeless shape, you will have the ultimate accessory that can easily pull any outfit together, making it look more polished and stylish.

Dressing for the office doesn’t have to be challenging, as long as you have the right accessories that can easily take an average outfit to the next level and make it absolutely stunning.
