Wear Drop earrings for work outfit

All work and no play makes Jill and her outfit a dull woman. Despite her busy schedule, Jill still wants to make sure she looks elegant but remains professional in her attire. The trick that Jill needs to master is not going to over the top with the earring she chooses. A tricky, but not impossible feat with the already larger earring. 

The solution is simpler than Jill might think. The beauty about drop earrings is that they are not a ‘one size fit all’ and by finding the work appropriate size, Jill can take her work outfit from drab to professional fab. 

Despite wanting to one-up your outfit, the venue (place of work) must always be considered. Jill doesn’t want to be in a meeting but has clients being distracted because her drop earrings are too distracting. On the flip side, her drop earrings can be the statement piece of her outfit if she chooses correctly. A solid coloured business power suit could benefit from a colourful drop earring that adds life the suit.
