We’re always expected to look extremely impeccable at work, aren’t we? While we do have great outfits, we’re in a constant dilemma of how to team up these beauties with correct accessories.
#1: Layer it Up
You won’t believe how a well-fitted jacket can just change the whole look of your beautiful dress!
-It enhances the look of your upper body and is a good cover up for sleeveless dress or can be great for cool evenings too.
-The correct kind of blazer gives a break to the mono-chromic look of your office dress.
#2: Minimalist Jewellery
-Long necklaces look extremely beautiful with ‘V’ cut dresses.
-When your dress has a heavy yoke, avoid a necklace. Instead go for some pretty earrings.
-When the neck of your dress is low, opt for a bold blingy statement necklace.
-When you have a narrower neckline then a small pendent chain works best.

A scarf is a versatile piece of cloth. It is something that complements whatever you’re wearing. There are varieties of scarves available in the market—long, short, thin, square, adorned, and more!
-If you’re not in the mood to wear jewellery you can simply take a small scarf or choose an appropriate scarf according to the weather.
-A small scarf with a single knot, bow or butterfly knot looks extremely feminine and chic on a narrow neck.
-For a boat neck dress drape a long soft fabric scarf and let it hang on your neck or tie single loose knot to add oomph to your ensemble.

Picking the correct shoes for a correct dress is important but choosing a comfortable pair of shoes which suit your body type and legs is more essential.
-On a dazzling formal dress then pointed front heels go best with it as they give your body a sleeker and taller look.
-However, if you’re not comfortable wearing pencil heels you can opt for plain wedges or low-rise pumps.
– You can opt to flaunt your pampered feet with some delicate pair of sandals during summers.
#5: Wrist Wear

-To team it up with formal dresses, avoid wearing blingy and clinking bracelets. Pearls are apt.
– Avoid wearing a necklace if you’re wearing a statement bracelet.
-If you want to keep it simple you can have a very delicate bracelet. Ones with strings and charms go well.
-Avoid wearing both together.
#6: Hair Accessories
If you’re the kind who likes to leave your hair down, merely add a hair band to avoid messy hair.
-While selecting a hair-band for work place ‘subtle’ is the trump card.
-Depending on your forehead size you can choose a broader or thinner hair-band. For example- if you have a broad forehead thinner hair-bands do great and vice versa.
– You can also tie a pony tail with a lightly studded rubber band.
During summers, up-dos are the most comfy so merely attach a simple comb to it and complete your look.
#7: Bags & Clutches
A bag is an accessory that complements your outfit the most and must be chosen wisely.
-For an evening event from work, a Baguette—a small cylindrical bag attached with a cord, strap or chain—in subtle or sober colours is a great option.
-If you have fewer things to carry, then a simple chic and sleek clutch is the best option for you.
-For daily office use, a Hobo or A.K.A. shoulder bags is the perfect option to carry all your things. But do not take an overly big, heavy and blingy bag for office use.
#8: Brooches & Belts
Brooches or belts can make or break a dress you’re wearing to office because it can easily create a good focal point or make you look under-dressed.
-A belt gives a visual break to your outfit or can be a good cover-up for an oversized dress.
-For thinner women a mid-size to thick belts is apt. Overweight women should avoid wearing thick belts because they do not hide your porch, in fact does the exact opposite.
-Pinning the brooch at the right place is important because the motive of the brooch is not only as an accessory but also of creating a focal point so if you’re heavier on the chest avoid wearing it near your shoulder instead pin it near your neckline.
