Dressing for work can get tricky at times. You should be careful about choosing your outfit and accessories. Always, choose the type of jewellery that makes your look more elegant (and work-appropriate!). The simple guideline says, go for comfortable, hassle-free, everyday, low-maintenance jewellery for your workplace. Of course, your choice of jewellery will depend on the type of your profession. In more conservative office environment, you can wear stud earrings or delicate ring that doesn’t look too fancy or make any noise. Conversely, in more creative office environment, statement pieces are still appreciated.

  • When it comes to fashion jewellery, don’t opt for them as they look very flashy. Also, try not to go for jewellery which is way too heavy as it may get uncomfortable for your 9-5 schedule.
