When you’re working from home, it can be tempting to lounge in your sweats. It’s comfortable, but sometimes it just feels… blah. When you’re on Zoom calls, or even just getting work done on your own, it can help to feel a little bit more put together. In fact, research shows that dressing up can improve your mood and your productivity. The good news is that elevating your look doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, all you need are a few work from home accessories to go from pajamas to professional chic. In this article, we’ll show you how to find the perfect jewelry pieces to tie your WFH outfit together. Let’s dive in!
A Few Things to Keep in Mind
When you’re shopping for work from home accessories, it can help to keep a few things in mind. Here’s what to consider when you’re picking out WFH jewelry:
Build a capsule collection
If you want to give yourself a range of WFH accessory options that require no effort, build a capsule jewelry collection. Shopping for a few staple pieces that work together is an economic way to accessorize any look. All you need are a few pieces that complement each other and work with your daily outfits. To make it simple, pick one metal that you like and find a piece of jewelry made from that metal in each category, like a necklace, a pair of earrings, a ring, and a bracelet.
Keep it versatile
Stocking your WFH jewelry set with versatile pieces makes it easy to freshen up your look and keep boredom at bay. Find pieces that mix and match well together to create a dynamic collection — look for pieces that you can pair with all sorts of other items, like stackable rings and bracelets or layerable necklaces.
Choose pieces you can wear everywhere
While you can keep work in mind while you shop, it’s also important to invest in pieces that you want to wear out in the world and away from the screen. Pick pieces that feel like you, pieces that match your style and your personality. Find jewelry that you’d want to wear to happy hour, the movies, or brunch with friends in addition to your Zoom meetings.
Now that we’ve covered the styling basics, let’s take a look at some great WFH jewelry pieces.
Earrings are a quick and easy way to transform an outfit. With the right pair, you can take a look from underdressed to polished and refined. A simple everyday pair like diamond studs or gold hoops are basic enough to work with any outfit, but you don’t have to stop there. Making an earring stack with a variety of different shapes, sizes, and colors can add a lot of style to a basic t-shirt (or pajama shirt… sometimes they work). Here are some of our favorites:
- Encanta Diamond and Gold Heart Earrings
- Initial Diamond Stud Earrings
- Eris Double Row Hinge Huggie Earrings
- Heiress Petite Diamond Hoop Earrings
A go-to necklace can easily elevate your look. An even better way to accentuate your style is to layer a few different necklaces. A combination of strands feels stylish and on trend without distracting from your outfit. This will blend your at-home vibe with a professional, put-together style. Here are some recommendations:
- Mini Paperclip Chain Necklace
- Pia Open Heart Diamond Circle Pendant
- Prima Diamond Star Pendant
- Prystn Pendant
When you’re click-clacking away on your keyboard, noticing a sparkly bracelet on your wrist can make you feel elegant and confident. A bracelet or two can also show that you’ve put a little more effort into your style instead of rolling out of bed at 8:59 before your first meeting of the day (even though you totally can — putting on a bracelet takes two seconds!). Choose just one for a dainty and slender look, or stack up a few for a more complicated, dynamic aesthetic. Here are some of our top picks:
- Tal Diamond Tennis Bracelet
- Brooke Lock and Heart Key Flexible Bangle
- Briana Clover Bolo Bracelet
- Birthstone Enamel Bracelet
Unlike your fuzzy socks, your hands aren’t hidden when you’re on video calls — in fact, gesturing with your hands when you’re meeting virtually can even help you communicate better. So why not add a little bit of sparkle to your fingers? Dressing up your hands with a few rings can tie together your look. Whether you wear them solo, on different fingers, or stacked together, find a few rings to step up your WFH outfit. Here are some suggestions:
- Rose Diamond Row Ring
- Rome Diamond Stars Dome Ring
- Rowan Open Shape Diamond Ring
- Roberta Diamond Band
