For fashionistas who work in a more conservative office, finding the right accessories is bit more challenging. You already know that your favorite eye-catching door knocker earrings won’t be appropriate for the office, but what earrings could you wear? Read on for smart tips and ideas on the best accessories you can wear to the office.

1- Don’t be afraid to add a little color. Bold and bright hues can instantly transform just about any look. Try wearing pretty gemstone jewelry like a pretty necklace or ring. All you need is a single stylish piece to make an impact, but why not add several (two or three) pieces to the mix? You could opt for matching jewelry pieces, or you could mix it up a little. Bold colors don’t have to end there- consider adding a vivid hue accessory like a scarf, wrap, or headband. Another tip: don’t limit colorful accessories to all-black or netural outfits. Choose a colorful blouse, skirt, or dress and find a cute accessory to match it. For instance, if you plan on wearing a pretty blue floral print top, try pairing it with a turquoise cocktail ring or maybe an aquamarine pendant.

2-Invest in a quality handbag that will last. The handbag is the one accessory you will always want to spend a little more money on to ensure you get the best. A solid black leather tote bag with lots of room may be the ideal style for work, but you could pick another style if that is what you want. The one thing to keep in mind when shopping for the perfect work tote is structure and quality. You want a bag that is made from genuine leather and features quality construction. Try to avoid bags that are made from cheap pleather or vinyl. Avoid any style that looks poorly made. You want to cultivate a professional image at work and the right handbag makes all the difference. One caveat to keep in mind: be prepared to spend up to $150 to $200 on a great bag for work.

3- Show off your great sense of style. Dressing up (even for work) should be fun, so don’t be afraid to have a little fun with accessories. Are you a glamour girl? Rock a pair of diamond drop earrings and tie a long silk scarf around your waist. If you consider yourself more of a classic fashionista, you can’t go wrong with gold jewelry and structured vintage handbags. Find your style and invest a little money in pretty accessories you will want to wear everyday. Great accessories can pull together any outfit and its a lot of fun to see all the stylish possibilities you can create with just a few accessories. Feel free to have fun and play around with different looks.
