New Delhi: You may dress to impress at work, but accessorising your look sensibly is what adds up to make a lasting impression, says an expert.
Aakrosh Sharma, Vice President – Design and Merchandising at BlueStone.com, shares tips on how to carry off jewellery at work.
* Enhance, not exaggerate: Garnishing your outfit with subtle jewellery helps the tones and structures of an outfit standout. With the right amount of accessorising, it also makes sure jewellery doesn’t overpower your outfit in any way. Keep it elegant and sleek with minimal jewellery. It could be delicate diamond studs or pearls for those who want to explore less expensive options.
* Infuse your personality: Statement pieces can be achieved with simple jewellery like studs, rings, bracelets and necklaces. Layering two simple chains, adding your favourite charm pendants to bracelets, nice cufflinks and brooches to go with your shirt are all out-of-the-box ideas which are all a clever injection of your interests.
* Less is more: When it comes to work jewellery, minimal is good. And for all the working married woman who don’t want to quit wearing tanmaniyas (mangalsutra) to work, there are tanmaniyas available these days which are stylish and sleek and don’t look over the top.
* Say yes to patterns: Complement the everyday go-to ring with a midi ring, a perfectly-fitted bracelet and carry an intricately designed office bag to add a touch of oomph.
