4 Earrings That Are Work Appropriate (And 1 That's Not)

by Natalie Fields

Accessories at work can be a tricky subject. You want something tasteful and professional, but you also want to add some personal style to your outfit. One of the easiest ways to do this is with earrings. However, it can be tough to understand what is work appropriate and what is not. Here's what you need to know.

Work Appropriate

1. Stud Earrings

Stud earrings are a classic choice for the workplace. They are lowkey since they sit close to the earlobe and can match any outfit. With their simple, understated style, you don't have to worry about them clashing with your work clothes. Plus, they are subtle enough not to distract from your face during in-person meetings or video presentations. Whether you choose gold, silver, or something with a bit of sparkle, stud earrings are always a chic and sophisticated choice.

2. Small Hoop Earrings

Hoop earrings have had their ups and downs in the fashion world, but they are a reliable choice for work. A small hoop can add a touch of elegance to a simple outfit, while long dangly hoops are too much for the 9-to-5. Additionally, small hoops are versatile, working well with formal and casual clothes.

3. Pearl Earrings

Like stud earrings, simple pearl earrings are a timeless and elegant choice for the workplace. They are feminine without being too flashy and can add a touch of luxury to your outfit. They are available in various sizes. If you want to be a little edgy, try a pair of black pearl earrings for a twist. One thing to keep in mind is to avoid overly chunky or overly big pearl earrings. Instead, opt for a simple pair of small to medium-sized pearls for a classic look.

4. Petite Dangle Earrings

While dangle earrings are generally a no-go for work, some are petite and perfect if you want variety and dimension in your work accessories. They give your outfit a little pop, which can help you stand out in a sea of standard workwear. However, it's important to choose wisely. Keep an eye out for earrings with a simple design; they shouldn't hang too far past your earlobe, and, most importantly, they shouldn't make noise when moving. Go for styles that are subtle.

Not Work Appropriate

Oversized or Statement Earrings

While statement earrings can be a fun and daring addition to your off-duty wear, they don't belong in most workplaces. If you work in a creative field and your coworkers regularly wear statement jewelry, particularly oversize earrings, feel free to join in. However, most work environments, particularly conservative ones like law firms, consider oversized earrings unprofessional and distracting. Instead, focus on earrings that complement your work attire while remaining tasteful and subtle.

Accessorizing for work does not have to be a daunting task. You can be work-appropriate while still being fashionable and chic. Small earrings can easily elevate your everyday look while still helping you stay professional and polished.
