HOW TO INCORPORATE STATEMENT JEWELLERY INTO YOUR CORPORATE WARDROBE
When we think Corporate it is as true as it is said, it can be very limited in what goes and what doesn’t in terms of dress codes. Many corporations usually insist on having a dress code because they know that the way you look is speaking about yourself without words. Our personal style is how we introduce ourselves and if we want to say “I mean business”, there’s only one way to say it!
But then again, Fashion means business and fashion IS a very essential tool when you address to someone. As said many times in the history of Fashion, style is an International Code and is carrying the message of ‘Style is indispensable’.
And here comes the tricky part – How do we accessorise accordingly to the corporate dress code? And how can we add bits and pieces of our personal style into a corporate environment?
– Well, isn’t perfect that we are here to talk about Just that!
It is a common dilemma in general, that many women shy away from wearing bold and daring jewellery, and even more stick to the basics and don’t mix up their looks with some fun statement jewellery pieces. Of course everyone have their own style and me personally like to stick to simple and minimal jewellery at most times. However I make exceptions for big pearls!
In my day to day job I don’t often wear the typical corporate attire, but the Fashion nowadays is not far off. There is a lot of monochrome, sharp and sophisticated shapes – Strong lines, minimal and ‘Smart’ Fashion is definitely trending at the moment. I personally love this style and monochrome is my mantra, which sometimes makes it hard when it comes to accessorising a ‘Corporate’ outfit.
I have thought about this topic and have come up with e few styling tips to incorporate Statement Jewellery Pieces into my corporate wardrobe without it being too much or over the top, but Just Right!
Choose earrings wisely:
Statement earrings are beautiful, ornate and cannot be missed. They will be the first thing that anyone talking to you will notice. Make sure you choose a pair that suits your face shape and enhances your features. The wrong pair of earrings can be very distracting, so take details such as length, size, colour and shape into consideration when choosing adornment for your ears.
Neckless or bracelet?
Pearls has as well as diamonds a sense of freedom that empowers women, and gives them the change to mix and match, to interact with their jewellery, to personalise and best express their personality. Fine and minimal jewellery will never offer such endless possibilities. I can’t say which I like more – bold and oversized jewellery pieces or smaller, finer pieces – But what I can tell you is that I am a fan of both and why not mixing the extremes … the clash of contrast in jewellery can make it interesting.
So I would say either – Or why not both?
If investing in fine and luxury jewellery – What to think about?
I would say that a beautiful and bold statement ring looks just right at the office, reinforcing the powerful look of a business woman with a single statement piece – However I like to match a good ring with an equally good pair of earrings! These two pieces are also great for evening wear or a cocktail look with any other jewellery – So you’ve got endless options …
Corporate Styling Rules:
In fashion there are hardly any no-go areas in terms of styling but unfortunately there are a few things to think about when accessorising a corporate attire. For instant, Statement Jewellery doesn’t ‘have to be’ massive, colourful, sparkly and super glamourous. There are Statement Jewellery in forms of Pearls, diamonds and simple gold/silver which instead adds a touch of luxury, sophistication and a more polished but powerful look, which in my opinion works better with a corporate outfit
Next – think of maxi earrings or maxi necklaces for example – One choice makes a statement on a silhouette, both together can give the impressions that you want to show off all your favourite jewellery at once. The impact of one is killed by the oversize of the other. It is always a question of balance, but of course with the right attitude everything is possible.
The truth is that no one knows yourself better than You! Be the beautiful, strong and successful woman that you are and be fabulous in pearls and diamonds at the same time …
Your true sparkle comes from within … Just make it shine extra bright with your best friends …
