Accessorizing your wardrobe for work can be tricky. An office environment has rules to keep up an appropriate and professional environment. Often those rules leave too much room for error. They don’t say a 3″ heel is too high or rattling bracelets will drive your co-workers crazy all day. Instead, you need to figure the rules out and try to make the best fashion choices for the office.
Here are some great accessories that are office perfect. Pair them with your favorite gray, navy, or black suit; beautiful trousers and blouse; or a lovely wrap dress.
Rock Your Work Accessories
Pair a colorful necklace with a solid color blouse. Select a piece that is not only comfortable but complimentary to your eye color and wardrobe pieces. Wear only one piece of statement jewelry to the office, though. Pair the piece with stud earrings for a polished look.
Most women pay close attention to shoes. They are one of our favorite accessories. For the office, select a pair that is no more than 2 to 2 1/2″ high and closed toe or slight peep toe. Steer clear of those strappy party shoes. They say “let’s have some champagne!”; not “let’s get to work”.
Flats are also a great option for work. Ballet flats are very comfortable and versatile. They pair with skirts, dresses, and slacks.
No outfit is complete without an amazing bag. Look for something that is large enough to hold your lunch (if packing), spare shoes, cardigan, electronics, and personal items.
Speaking of cardigans, don’t forget to add this accessory to your wardrobe. They are perfect to keep you warm when someone turns the A/C up or you feel a little chilly.
Blazer and Overcoat
You’ve heard it before and you’ll hear it again. Add an amazing blazer to your wardrobe. It is a workhorse in your wardrobe and the perfect accessory to wear with anything. Don’t forget a beautiful overcoat for those cold days and nights!
