Accessorizing Appropriately For A Corporate Office

Accessorizing Appropriately For A Corporate Office

Surely, you don't want to be that woman in black suit every single day. Your fashion forward self just could not deal with such repetition and simplicity, right?

One of the easiest ways to spice up these corporate suits is too apparently add some accessories. It is also a good way to add some variety to your limited corporate attired. But, unlike our party or casual clothes, there are more considerations to be observed when it comes to office attire. Unfortunately, not all women know about these limitations and end up overaccentuating for the set-up they're in, which happen to be one of the terrible office wardrobe mistakes. We all should probably learn from Andy of Devil Wear's Prada, but some of her styles seem too sophisticated for regular office girls like us.

To keep things simple, it would help to know that those necklaces, rings, and bracelets can still be considered as staples when it comes to office outfits. However, when one accessory item is already bold enough, keep the rest of your accessories as subtle as possible. If you want an instant boost to an all black outfit, try a pop of color either through your necklace or earrings. It is amazing to know how a simple yet bold of accessory can easily change the command of your presence, especially in an office set-up.

Pieces of jewelry are not your only go to option for office accessories. Another classic and reliable accessory that you should always have is a silk scarf, preferably with bold patterns. Scarves are convenient accessories for a rather simple top, adding an executive appeal to a rather subdued outfit.

Purses or handbags are also accessories that an office girl should never run out. While the need for a huge, sturdy bag will always be there, an elegant purse will come handy for executive meetings or seminars. Bags are extensions of an outfit so make sure to have at least one fashionable purse to compliment your office attire.

Finally, never forget the power of belts to make a huge difference to an outfit. These days you do not just buy belts for lose pants, you buy them more importantly to stay fashionable in almost any outfit. For the office look, settle with neutral colors of belt that comes with bold buckles. It's a perfect mix of simplicity and elegant that you certainly want for that corporate look.
