Making a Statement Necklace Office Appropriate

As you know I’m a minimalist, less is more for me, so if an item doesn’t enhance my outfit I’m not going to wearing it.

When I wear statement jewelry I keep the rest of my look simple and sleek. In this outfit, the blue and crystal bib necklace catches the eye as the centerpiece of my outfit. My entire outfit is black and white, inspired by this spring’s black and white trend. The only other color besides the necklace is my bold red lip, which complimented the overall look pretty well.

There are many ways to wear a statement necklace but I prefer this sleek minimalist look for the office. I know distracting jewelry in the workplace is shunned upon but when the outfit preserves professionalism and is tasteful I believe it’s not only appropriate but stylish as well.

When wearing a statement necklace minimize distractions & avoid wearing other jewelry. Let the necklace be the centerpiece.

    i can’t agree with you more about wearing a statement jewelry piece in a minimalist way…one must let the jewelry stand out and have its spotlight by muting the rest of the outfit:)

    This looks great – and sometimes I like minimalism to. And I´m so impressed about your natural beauty and your wonderful hair!

    In my opinion you really don´t need lots of accessoires because your beautiful sight is awesome without boost.

    Love this simple, chic look! I love a statement necklace and yours is beautiful! I also love how fresh your red lip looks for daytime. This totally inspires me to bring deeper, richer lip colors into my look- usually I just wear nude glosses. Great pics:)

      Yay, so happy I could inspire you to try something new. The funny thing is I just started wearing deeper shades during the day and I am loving it! Happy you are going to give it a try.

    I love this so much! I love how your outfit really lets the necklace shine! Gorgeous! x

    This is exactly my thought and my style. I try to keep everyhting minimal and you will hardly see me wearing lots of accessories. Arm party? Not for me.
    Blazers are a must-have and i’d wear black and white all the time if I could.
    This is a very nice combination, I really like it. Great job! 🙂

      Thank you so much Sara! My thoughts exactly on the arm party and yes blazers are a huge must! Thank you for your lovely comment!
