5 ways to style your jewellery for work


Jewellery is not only a great way to express yourself, but it is also an excellent way to add a finishing touch to any outfit, especially in a professional setting. Whether you work in an office or another professional environment, accessorising with jewellery has a significant impact on your overall look. In this blog post, we will explore five ways to style your jewellery for work to help you feel confident, stylish, and professional.

Keep It Simple:

When it comes to selecting jewellery for work, keep it simple. In a professional setting, you want to make sure your jewellery is not distracting or overwhelming. Opt for simpler earrings, necklaces and bracelets. Pieces that are understated and elegant can add just the right amount of polish to your outfit without drawing too much attention to your accessories.

Simple jewellery pieces like a classic pair of heart stud earrings, a Winging it necklace, or a Heart strings bracelet can elevate any outfit while still remaining professional. These pieces are timeless and versatile, allowing you to mix and match them with different outfits for a put-together look.

Create Layers:

Layering jewellery is a great way to add depth and interest to an outfit. When layering necklaces, try different lengths to create a chic and elegant look. Layering necklaces can create an eye-catching look that is both professional and fashionable. You can opt for multiple delicate chains with small pendants or layer a delicate necklace with a chunky chain for a more statement look.  For some layering inspiration check out the Shop the Look section.

Customised layering necklace sets are a really popular, and simple way elevate your look. These necklace sets come with multiple chains and pendants, allowing you to create a layered look with minimal effort. You can find our curated layering sets here.

Experiment With Mixing Metals:

We love mixed metals at C&B!  Mixing metals can create a unique and eye-catching look that is both trendy and professional. Necklaces with pendants that contrast with the colour of the chain and rings that contain different metal colours are excellent pieces to experiment with.

If you are new to mixing metals you can also add a pop of colour by coloured enamel or a contrasting charm. Mixing metals is an excellent way to add personality and character to your professional look.  One of our favourite mixed metal pieces for work is the Heart 2 Heart necklace.

Coordinate With Your Outfit:

Coordinating your jewellery with your outfits can create a polished and cohesive look. When choosing jewellery to wear with your outfit, think about the colour scheme and style of your clothes. For example, if you are wearing a shirt or a top with a high neckline, opt for some statement earrings like the She Shines hoops. If you are wearing an outfit with bold colours, choose jewellery that complements the outfit rather than clashes with it.

Statement earrings are an excellent choice for high-neck tops or shirts. You can also opt for a bold necklace to add a pop of colour to your outfit. Coordinating your jewellery with your outfit can add an extra level of polish to your professional look.

Dress It Up or Down:

Transitioning your jewellery from day to night is easy by swapping out certain pieces. For example, if you are wearing a pair of stud earrings throughout the day, swap them out for some statement earrings at night. Statement earrings can add a touch of glamour to your outfit, making them perfect for after-work drinks or dinner.

Simple stud earrings are an excellent choice for a professional setting. They are understated and versatile, allowing you to wear them with any outfit. However, if you want to dress up your outfit for after work why not pop in a pair of the Flutter charm earring backs?

In conclusion, wearing jewellery to work can be a great way to boost your confidence and feel more put-together. It can help to express your personal style and give a polished finishing touch to your outfit. Wearing a favourite piece of jewellery can make you feel more confident and put you in a positive mindset for the day.
