One way I love to modernize and personalize classic outfits is by adding a unique eye-grabbing accessory. As I've noted before, keeping accessories in professional finishes (like all-gold) allows you to explore more fun shapes and styles. This gold sunburst necklace is a perfect example. At work, a dramatic piece like this should be the star of the show, so it's best to keep the rest of the outfit relatively understated.  I love the way this necklace grabs the light from behind the jacket and adds a little glamor to an otherwise-sleek, conservative outfit. 

I usually wear simple stud earrings at work but have started experimenting with more interesting styles. While I've been loving the tassel trend recently, they can start to get uncomfortable and annoying when you're wearing them for the entire workday. I'm finding that ear jackets are a great way to mix up earring styles a bit while staying comfortable and office appropriate. This pair is great since I wear a lot of white and gold, and I love how it coordinates with the necklace.

Both the necklace and the earrings are from Bauble Bar; it's one of my favorite places to find fun, office-appropriate jewelry that is good quality for the price.  I highly recommend checking out the site if you're looking to add a bit of pop to your office wardrobe without breaking the bank.
