The Work-From-Home Jewellery Guide
2020 has been unpredictable. The arrival of COVID-19 and resulting consequences has meant global lockdowns and confinement to homes, among many other things. One important result of the lockdown is the transition to the world of the internet.
When I look to my right, I see my brother appearing for his ‘online’ class courtesy of Zoom sessions and his webcam. Suddenly, I remember my upcoming office meeting – virtual of course. Oh, how the times have changed.
While my routine seems a mess, I find it difficult to find the right look to create for my virtual meetings. How does one dress for a work-from-home day, really? We, at C. KrishniahChetty Group of Jewellers are here to guide you through the work-from-home jewellery routines you can opt for. One important aspect to remember is that with work-from-home, webcam-assisted meetings, you need not go for lower-body jewellery. This means while anklets might be your favourite thing to wear – it doesn’t really show in the webcam. Thus, focus on enhancing your upper body features, and giving them the shine they deserve. From necklaces to rings and bracelets – the sky’s the limit.
When attending work-related meetings or a regular day at work, remember to display minimalist jewellery pieces. While pops of colour and funky earrings might be your favourite thing to wear – they might not classify as the right workwear jewellery. This means, when attending work – virtual or practical – you might have to ditch your Cheetah-inspired studs and heart-shaped earrings for something minimalist and elegant.
STUDS for the Studious and Classic
In times of meetings, always remember to wear noiseless jewellery. This means long, dangling, and especially noisy jewellery shouldn’t be your first choice, especially if you are heading the meeting. In such a case, studs will work best. You might be wondering how studs can be a look-completer for an office day, since they are usually the go-to ear wear for teenage girls.
However, the kind of studs you need to perfect your work-from-home look certainly aren’t the regular, run-off-the-mill studs you see every day.
On the other hand, if you want to add some colour to the studs and enable them to go with many outfits, adding a hint of gold to the classic diamond studs is another great option.
Another great way to up your game of work-from-home looks is via the perfect pendant. Most of us have a wide collection of pendants we only take out of the jewellery box for special occasions. Well, this year has certainly taught us that every day is special, and thus we certainly do not need any reason to dress up.
Take out those pendants from the jewellery box, and match them with the attire you choose to wear everyday for your work-from-home meetings. Curious how do we match a pendant? Look at this gorgeous classic diamond chain pendant with a blue stone from C. Krishniah Chetty Group of Jewellers,
Wear this with a blue shirt or kameez – and you are matching and good to go. Repeat the same for any other coloured pendants you have, and you shall have perfected your office look.
Bling for the Hands
For people like me who move their hands a lot while conversing, hand jewellery makes a lot of difference. If you are not a jewellery person, a smartwatch on one hand shall make loads of difference. Yet, if you love wearing jewellery, a simple bracelet is what you need to not only grasp the attention of the viewer, but also exclaim elegance and poise while you conduct your virtual speech.
Create Your Signature Look
There are many who don’t follow the norms of the work attires, and love to put their own blends in the look they don. If you are one of those, you can follow the same unique style you always have, even during the work-from-home routine.
Many girls love wearing jhumkis and can wear it with every attire – from eastern to western ones. If the jhumki is your signature style, you can easily wear it for the office. But remember to keep it subtle and not too flashy.
Find a look that works for you, and continue your virtual endeavors with classic looks – or mix and match for a different look for each day.
