Chic Summer Office Essentials - Part 4
Rings, bracelets, and bangles, oh my! The biggest piece of the work wear puzzle is accessorizing. Jewelry helps your look feel polished and put together. It's a blast to play with jewelry! It allows you to make a look truly yours :)
"Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off."
I LOVE this quote! I think for some of us it is very helpful and for the rest of us, we need to put more items on before we look into the mirror. Coco Chanel wore a LOT of jewelry and she looked stunning. It is more common to think about our clothes than it is to think about the jewelry to accompany them.
Jewelry is the cherry on top of an ice cream Sunday, it just wouldn't be a ice cream Sunday without it. A complete look wouldn't be complete without jewelry. I have some fabulous essential jewelry items for office looks . You may already have similar pieces in your jewelry box...
There are not many rules for necklaces. You can layer them until they feel right or wear one as a staple piece. It is really up to your own interpretation of style. I encourage you to take risks with chunkier pieces, you might be pleasantly surprised at what they add to your outfit ;)
Bracelets ~ Bangels ~ Cuffs
These are ESSENTIAL!!! They are easy to forget, but they add SO MUCH. Anything on the wrist is flattering because women's wrists are dainty and small. It's good to draw attention to those places on your body :)
If you have long fingers, you could get away with wearing a few chuncky rings. If you have more petite fingers, you can still rock them, just make sure the proportions of the ring doesn't overwhelm for hand.
Earrings are a fun and easy way to play with jewelry. I love anything from simple to large. Just remember to apply balance. If you have a necklace on, do smaller earrings, if you have a light necklace or no necklace, you can ramp up your earring size.
Jewelry is SUPER important from work to everyday. I hope you have fun playing around with new pieces and ideas!
I am always interested in the creative ways you style yourself, so please feel free to post a photo of your look to the Love, Krystle facebook page!
P.S. What jewelry pieces are your staples this summer?! XOXO
