Walking the edge of the sand against the rush of ocean waves inspires relaxed, carefree vibes. And, there’s nothing like sea-inspired accessorizing to invoke warm weather feelings. But how can you stay true to your inner beach-lover without going overboard when it comes to office jewelry etiquette? Here are some tips for adding a burst of beachy bliss to your office-bound deskwear.

Colorful Tones Enhance Understated Looks

Take colorful cues from Mother Nature with vibrant corals, turquoise blues and sunny golden yellows to create an energetic vibe that instantly adds interest to your look. Play-up bold colors by adding them as tasteful accents. Or, make a statement with a necklace, chunky bracelet or cocktail ring to simply offset simple professional looks. This acts as a centerpiece to transform a basic button down or shift dress, and organic shaped stones and beachy colors add oceanic vibes to subdued daywear.

Refined Sea-Worthy Statements

Playful accessorizing with sea rocks, shells and beads can be a perfect way to bring the beach to work, but be aware that replicating these motifs in the workplace needs to be done just right.  Attention-grabbing chandelier earrings should be saved for after hours, but you can infuse a little sea-friendly fun that shows off your personality at the next board meeting with discreet, yet trend-worthy charm. Choosing high-end materials and simplistic designs will add flair in a mature way like this set of three stud earrings for office-ready refinement.

Trending in Delicate Layers

Summer means shorter sleeves and leg-baring dresses. You can definitely accessorize while still looking professional with a minimalist attitude. Layering delicate bracelets or long necklaces can be the breath of fresh air to creating a cool summer office vibe. Bangle braceelts with multi-rows of beading are a versatile piece that can be layered for boho, boardwalk style.

Enjoy the beach no matter where you are with a selection of fun, yet versatile pieces perfect for your professional life.
