Building confidence is a lifelong task, and there are many ways you can increase your confidence on a daily basis. One way to increase your confidence is to wear a fabulous accessory – it will inform everything you do that day. But, of course, that accessory has to be professionally appropriate.
So, which Spring 2018 accessories trends are polished enough for work?
Since accessories need to contribute to your credibility in the office and on the road, a good rule of thumb; the higher you are on the proverbial totem pole the more leeway you have for bold accessorizing.
For example; if you are the managing partner at your law firm you can carry off bolder versions of these trends. If you are a junior partner, I recommend a more understated interpretation. This continuum works for conservative to creative offices too. Bolder more colorful is generally more accessible and creative, and subtle, less colorful is more serious and conservative.
Here are three 2018 accessory trends; easy to incorporate into your 9-5 wardrobe, and sure to increase your visibiltiy. Just enough.
Round Crossbody – A round, red handbag completes Cindy Crawford’s latest iconic look. Why not streamline your lunch runs, and carry your essentials with effortless polish by borrowing a page from Cindy Crawford’s stylebook.
Pro tip: by tucking, or removing the strap entirely, a round cross body can double as a stylish clutch for evening.
Soft Belts – soft belts are easy to work with because they adapt to your body shape. Soft belts pair nicely with blazers, dresses, and pencil skirts, and can be adapted to the most conservative to creative offices. Choose wider versions, and or bolder colors for more impact, and thinner neutral color belts for less impact.
Pro Tip: The hanging tie detail adds visual length, giving you a leaner look.
Berets – Megan Markle demonstrated the sophisticated appeal of the beret trend at Westminster Abbey on Commonwealth Day. Why not employ this chic accessory for your next windy spring day commute, and save your coif?
