If you're concerned about spending money on jewelry that you're only going to wear to work, let us put your mind at ease. Diamond or crystal stud earrings are a timeless piece. They're never going out of style.
And they're a fabulous feature to add onto your business casual wardrobe. They're simple yet elegant and look great with any outfit. Because of this, after a long day of work, if you're ready to slip out of your slacks and slip into your little black dress for some much-needed cocktails, you won't have to worry about changing your earrings.
These studs look great in a square, circle, or other shapes.
To avoid bringing in too much attention but still get that flair that you desire, consider wearing a diamond or crystal pendant necklace over your business attire. A pendant necklace with smaller crystals says just enough without being too in your face. Because you'll be wearing this piece as a professional, you won't want to choose anything too gaudy.
Stick with a cube, marquise, or solitaire shape. A pendant necklace like the Swarovski Green Teardrop features a green crystal pendant surrounded by Swarovski crystals. You can place this pendant on any chain that you wish.
It's a brilliant way to make a bold statement without needing multiple or large pieces.
Lengthy chain necklaces are great for bringing you versatility. Delicate lengthy chains can be worn with other similar chains or by themselves. You can also wrap them to make it appear that you have on two chains.
These long and slim chains are elegant and great for matching with business casual outfits. They come in many different styles, so you have plenty of options. Some lengthy chain necklaces like the 40" Gold Overlay Fancy Filigree feature stunning disc throughout it and even have bracelets to match!
Hoops of any size, color, or style look great when needing a final touch on an outfit. But when dressing up for the business world, a simple crystal embedded hoop earring will do. Hoops like these are the best way to feel classy during and after work.
It's especially a good idea to wear a pair of hoops when deciding to wear your hair up for the day. Wearing your hair up high in a bun or such leaves room for a pair of hoops to really shine.
Pearls are another timeless jewelry piece. You can never go wrong with an elegant pair of pearl studs. They're perfect for the business casual workplace and for a night out on the strip.
You'll want to choose a size that doesn't cover your entire earlobe or fall past it. Keep the pearl small enough to sit just right on your ears. This look is simple, elegant, and extremely classy.
Pearls don't only look fabulous on your ears. They look great on around your neck and wrists too! And they're a great way to add the perfect feminine touch to your business attire.
If white pearls aren't your thing, or if you're afraid white might be too bold, don't worry. You don't have to stick to the classic white pearl look. You can find pearl necklaces and bracelets in a variety of colors.
Choose gray colored pearls for a more sophisticated look.
Stackable minimal rings are classy and delicate. You can mix and match the different rings on separate fingers or multiple rings on one finger. These rings are usually very thin and have minimal decoration or design on them.
If you're not sure that you'll be able to stack these rings fashionably, then consider checking out something like the 4 Ring Stacked Sterling Silver Ring. This ring comes with the 4 rings stacked together all in one. All you have to do is simply slip it on the finger you desire.
Bangle bracelets can be worn alone or matched with other bangles. These bracelets come in different styles and metals and have been around for years. They can be the perfect accessory to your business wardrobe when worn correctly.
If deciding to wear more than one bangle, keep them together on the same wrist and don't add anything too flashy on your other one. If you want to wear multiples, make sure that they remain the focal point of your outfit. It's easy to overdo it when wearing multiple bangles, which may not work well for a business casual atmosphere.
Sticking to this guide is the best way to ensure that you choose the perfect business casual jewelry to compliment your professional lifestyle. Although all of these pieces are perfect for work and play, they aren't the only jewelry pieces that you should own.
