Mastering a white button down shirt at the workplace has proven to be difficult throughout my career. When I see this simple shirt, my first reaction is to over compensate for it’s simplicity, however I’ve learned that fitted pants and a statement necklace will go a long ways with this classic shirt. Here are five different types of necklaces you can wear with a white shirt to the office. Get creative with your necklaces because these will change your entire outfit. Also, don’t be afraid to button up your shirt all the way or leave a few buttons undone (just make sure it looks work appropriate).
This necklace is from J.Crew (sold out). A tribal jeweled necklace over the collar of a white shirt is perfect way to look trendy and polished at work.
Love these clustered pearls from J.Crew (which I picked up for $17!). As much as I love a strand of pearls, a cluster of pearls is a great way to look classic, with an up-to-date twist!
Delicate necklaces are some of my favorite to wear with classic white shirts, it give you fresh and clean look. My fiance got me the two joining circles for Valentine’s Day and the longer necklace is from a street vendor in Brooklyn.
An oversized tortoise bib, from Bauble Bar, looks great with a white shirt. The simplicity of a white shirt give you the ability to go big with your accessories.
Jeweled collars are always my favorite to wear with a classic white shirt. They’re so pretty and glamorous. When I don’t know what necklace to wear, I reach for this J.Crew jeweled necklace.
