If you swear by chic and minimalist attire at work, consider amping up your look by using accessories well. Here are new fashion trends for work

Here are five suggestions by Jacqueline Kapur, President and co-founder of Ayesha Accessories about how you can wear accessories to your office.

Pretty in pearls

Pearls have been the go to pieces for styling work appropriate outfits, as they are seen as reliable and elegant. They are the grown up beaded accessory style and can be used to upgrade work based accessories. A pair of pearl earrings with a statement navy blue blouse and straight fit pants will be a perfect combination and if you are looking at ideas to elongate your neckline try a pearl pendant necklace.

Make it minimal

Minimalism is the new chic, the less accessories you wear the better you will be able to focus on your outfit, and the best way to do this is to wear either a studded earring, or a pendant necklace or get some bling on your hands with a ring.

Elegant earrings

Earrings are the most understated accessory in your box. You can wear this piece strategically as it is very versatile in nature and can be paired with every outfit with finesse. A simple studded pair is a good choice for a Monday morning or for a more transitional piece towards Friday you can choose a pair of diamond studded hoops.

Niche necklaces

Necklaces are always tricky pieces of accessory as the length should be just perfect to create symmetry to get a perfect neckline. A statement pendant based necklace is the perfect choice for beating the mid-week blues and getting your outfit ready for a night out with your friends while keeping it work appropriate.

From causing mild irritation to severe redness and rashes, wearing jewellry during hot summer months, often spells disaster for your skin. This is a lifestyle article

“Soaps, lotion and dead skin stuck in the crevasses of your jewellery when combined with summer sweat creates an environment wherein bacteria grows which could potentially irritate your skin,” Abhishek Rastogi, Head of Design, Jewellery Division, Titan Company Limited told IANSlife.

As per Leshna Shah, founder and chief creative director of Irasva, a fine jewellery destination, says allergies affect nearly 10 percent of the population. But, having a jewellery rash or an allergy does not mean you need to stop wearing your favorite rings, earrings or other baubles.

Keeping the area dry is key. Bracelets and rings can cause a rash soon after washing your hand, if you fail to completely dry them. Keeping your hands and jewellery dry isn’t a foolproof plan, but it can helps prevent rashes.

Another trick is to have your jewellery plated. If a good piece of jewellery which you wear daily, such as your wedding ring, causes a reaction, ask a jeweler to have it plated in a metal which is less allergy prone like as platinum. Keep your jewellery clean and tarnish free. Also, wearing jewellery for shorter lengths of time helps.

According to Ketan Chokshi, Co-owner of Narayan Jewellers, if your jewellery is made of gem stones and precious diamonds, it is advisable to take it to your jeweller for cleaning in order to prevent damage to the stones.

Avoid moisture and soap. Switch to a mild soap with minimal chemicals as the chances of developing bacteria on your jewellery is less in this case. Always keep a hypoallergenic cream with and apply it often. However, if your skin is sensitive, a cream-based moisturiser helps in preventing skin rashes.

“One should definitely avoid all kinds of artificial jewellery as it may contain high levels of reactive metals like nickel, copper and zinc which can not only give one allergic rashes especially during the summers, but are also toxic for the body.”

“Gold and Platinum are inert, and silver is relatively inert so this trio should be your best bet for jewellery. However when buying gold one has to be very cautious of buying Nickel-Safe-Gold only, as nickel is one of the most common causes of itchy allergic rash that develops particularly on ears, neck, wrists and fingers. So always buy gold jewellery from reputed and trusted brands only,” Rastogi suggested. (IANS)
