1. Get a Statement Necklace

A statement necklace is a must-have for any lazy (yet stylish) girl. Instantly add the wow-factor to your apparel — whether it is a skirt-suit combo or an unbuttoned billowing blouse — with this versatile fashion accessory. Project feminine flair or polished elegance, all with one accessory. All you have to do is to hunt down a piece that is classic and wearable for all occasions.

 

2. Keep Your Core Accessories On

We’re not referring to chokers or long necklaces for this, of course. But for short delicate chains and other accoutrements, having your usual arsenal — like a Cartier Love bangle or a couple of thin bracelets — stay on will cut down on the time spent in the morning pondering over the right accessories for your outfits.

 

3. Decorate Your Purses Instead

An unexpected way to jazz up your work outfit would be to add an accent to your carryall instead. Choose bright and cheery bag charms or colour block scarves — they will give your understated work bag an extra pop.

4. Narrow Down Your Shoe Choices

Set aside your array of party shoes for the weekend — instead, keep your choices simple when it comes to the office. Rotate between two to three staples like a pair of classic block heel shoes, a pair of slingback mid-heels, and a pair of pointy-toed flats; just what you need to carry you through the work week.

 

5. Curate a Weekly Routine

Stick to a system every week to keep things organised and your mornings stress-free. It could resemble something like this:

Monday: Gold accessories

Tuesday: Scarves

Wednesday: Statement necklace only

Thursday: Silver accessories

Friday: Fun, loud and crazy

You could also lay out your accessories for the week on Sunday night and just work your way down. For easier reach and to prevent your pieces from getting all tangled together, consider storing them in storage items such as these from Muji. They have multiple shelving units to keep things neat, and they’re also easy on the eye.
