When it comes to accessorising, the right jewellery can give your outfit an instant lift. The same goes for your work attire too. Of course, what is considered work-appropriate jewellery will ultimately come down to your job and the general dress code but when done correctly, it can be a great way to dress up a plain outfit and help you look more sophisticated and put together.

Yes, we hear you. Dressing for work is hard enough, let alone figuring out what jewellery to accessorise with. For many, jewellery is an afterthought in the rush to make it to the office on time. However, investing in some simple essentials can take the guesswork out of your morning routine.

If you’re like most working ladies, you probably already have your wardrobe divided into “work-appropriate” and “work-inappropriate” outfits - this should be the same for your jewellery. Storing your work jewellery in a separate location makes it easier to decide on the right pieces when push comes to shove.

Top 5 Work-Appropriate Jewellery Styles | Overview

Overview: 

So, What Is The Best Jewellery For Work?

We’ve mentioned the importance of the “right” jewellery multiple times now, which is probably leaving you itching to know what exactly that is! To help you figure this out, we’ve rounded up our top five most appropriate jewellery styles for work.

If you already have these, then set them aside for easy finding during your next morning scramble. If not, we highly recommend investing in these essentials as part of your office look.

Simple Pendants

Simple pendants are a staple for everyone’s wardrobe and perfect for work. The beauty of a simple pendant is you can wear it all the time and with any outfit. Sticking to plain, minimal styles will elevate your look while also leaving plenty of room to build your outfit with more simple pieces if you wish. Avoid chunky statement necklaces or bold-coloured gemstones (such as ruby or emerald). Pearls, cubic zirconia, diamonds and other white stones are best for work as they won’t draw too much attention.

Stud Earrings

Stud earrings are always an elegant choice and a great option to wear with an updo for work. Again, we think less is more, so always err on the more simple side when choosing your studs. This also means you can pair them with a simple pendant like we mentioned above. Studs are a good option if your outfit is a little busier, such as bold prints, patterns or floral. Simple studs work to elevate your look without going overboard. This isn’t to say that you can’t rep bold earrings with a bold print  - just save that look for after work.

Classic Hoop Earrings 

Hoop earrings are a playful option for regular wear, so it’s important to choose wisely if wearing them to work. There’s no need to ditch hoops altogether, just choose your more simple styles. A pair of subtle hoops is great for framing your face and making a small fashion statement with your go-to work uniform. The bigger the hoop, the more minimal it should be. Less is more when it comes to larger hoops for work. Choosing plain, thin styles that don’t draw too much attention will work to your advantage over your heavily bejewelled drop earrings - again save those ones for your night out with the girls!

Minimalistic Rings

Minimalistic rings are great as a last-minute addition to your workday look. Choosing minimalistic styles means you can even venture with some subtle stacking of your rings (just be careful not to go overboard as too many rings can be distracting at work). If you decide on gemstones opt for styles that are too busy or grand. You should also avoid weaving more than one stone-set ring (unless it is a stacking ring) as multi-stones have the potential to look too ‘blingy’ for work.

Bangles

Bangles can be risky if you spend a lot of time typing away at your computer (no one enjoys the sound of bangles clinking against the desk). However, this isn’t to say they should be avoided completely at the office. Bangles are elegant and subtle pieces of jewellery that will complement your work outfits perfectly. For those who are typing for most of their day, we suggest removing your bangle or simply moving it up your arm where it sits a bit tighter and won’t move around.
