How to accessorize your work outfits

If you have a passion for fashion, then you are probably tired of having to wear plain, sensible and somewhat boring suits to work on a daily basis. Well, now is your chance to jazz up your work clothes because I have put together a few style tips to help you make the most of your outfits. 

It is amazing how a splash of color and a few accessories can really jazz-up your work clothes, making your outfits look much more feminine. I work on construction sites, so I normally have to wear black pants, construction boots and a hard hat, but I always manage to brighten up my uniform with a scarf or some accessories. Changing your hairstyle is another way you can create different looks - for some inspiration, why not check out some hairstyles in Vogue magazine, or look at the models on sites like Rush.co.uk.
For the office, avoid large or chunky jewellery and instead opt for delicate and feminine items like pearls, thin belts, and brooches. They compliment suit jackets as well as shirts. You can add a touch of sparkle to your outfit by sporting a sequined clutch. 

As a fashion-fanatic, you'll know that the shoes are the foundation of any outfit. So when it comes to choosing the right work shoes, make sure they're comfy but stylish too. A cute pair of kitten heels can easily make any outfit look more feminine. Plus, shoes can either glam-up or down dress an outfit; if you have a party or an engagement straight after work, simply swapping your shoes for some sparkly stilettos from your plain black work pumps really jazzes up your outfit. 

You can add a touch of sparkle to your work outfit by wearing a brooch. Brooches are sophisticated and delicate accessories which elegantly compliment a suit jacket or a smart shirt.

If you're like me and you are often out on site, then accessories like brooches and heels are not suitable. That's why I love wearing brightly colored scarves and hats. Not only do they add a splash of color to your outfit, but it makes it appear more feminine too.
