jewelry in the office

 Jewelry is my favorite finishing touch. For office wear, I like making a classic statement without being formal or too stuffy. The three things I try to avoid too much of are 1. bling, 2. color, and 3. texture. Here are some my favorite ways to integrate these without going overboard.

I love sparkle and it has its place, but I feel more comfortable at work when my jewels aren't making my coworkers squint every time they catch the light.

When you're pairing different pieces for work, choosing items in the same color palette is a simple way to keep your look neat without having to think too much about it.

And finally, I like to skip piling on friendship or wrap bracelets. I don't like wearing a lot of cording or leather in the office, and crazy summer arm parties usually involve multiple bright colors and textures.
