Accessory Tips: Straight From Office to Out-With-Friends.
Whether or not you’re part of those going back to the office, the world is getting back to the new normal, and you might need to drop by somewhere for work, office, cafe, conference, you name it.
You want to look nice without sacrificing the comfort you’ve gotten used to in the past couple of years. One sure way to achieve that is by accessorising.
Here are our tips for your statement pieces. Something very you, something you can always wear, and flexible enough to wear straight from work to a date with friends.
Form + Function
The trick to looking professional? Looking put together. This means looking like you cared when you dressed up that morning. Achieve this look with useful accessories.
1.Belts for a polished look.
Cinch your waist and add life to an otherwise plain outfit with a belt. Choose one that complements your outfit or matches your jewellery.
Take note, a thin belt is for accentuating clothing while a thicker belt is a statement piece for maximizing your simple dress or shirt.
2.Watches are a staple.
Whether it’s leather or metal strap or band, a watch is perfect for both office or after work.
A timepiece makes you look more professional because it gives you the impression that you are punctual and time-conscious. At the same time, watches gives your outfit a boost.
3.Hair scrunchies and claw clips.
Keep your hair from your face with stylish hair ties and clips. Silk scrunchies, scarf scrunchies, and metallic claw clips double as something pretty in your hair.
4.Go for minimalist and classic pieces
Interesting minimalist jewellery take you anywhere– from formal and business casual, to fun occasions!
5.Pearls are timeless
These earrings are not your simple pearl stud earrings. Aside from being modern and chic, this pair has a removable 18K gold triangle which you can wear in three styles– pair with the pearls in front, attach it on the back lobe or just wear the pearls on their own.

10. Unspoken rules about accessories at the office
These are rules you won’t see in your office’s SOP, but exist nonetheless.
For example, did you know that you shouldn’t exceed more than 3 pieces? We never knew that– we just know it’s too much to wear a necklace, earrings, bangles, a watch, and rings!
So what are these unspoken rules?
Don’t wear oversized jewellery that hinders your tasks.
Aside from looking a little costumey and impractical, big pieces can get in the way.
Go for something not too thin, not too thick. This diamond ring is classy and sophisticated without getting in the way of office work.
Avoid jangles and movement in your accessories

Styling for work and after work is easy
Wearing and layering accessories is exciting. It helps you express yourself. And now that we’re back to looking professional while working, classic and minimalist designs help you toe the line between office hours and happy hour.
