If your life is anything like mine then you find yourself heading straight from the office to an evening event or dinner at least a couple of times a week. But what do you wear? It needs to be office appropriate but also event or evening appropriate too.
The easiest way is to simply slip on a couple of pieces of fabulous jewellery. Here are [number] collections of jewellery that you can add to a simple Little Black Dress, or Little White Dress; or even a plain tee with a nice pencil or circle skirt.
MARNI MULTI-MATERIAL EMBELLISHED LEATHER COLLAR & DROP EARRINGS
This leather collar with faux jewels from Marni will look amazing on simple shirt dress or with a nice quality white tee worn with a print skirt; add the quirky faux jewel earrings and the look it solid. Available from Marni boutiques located in Hilton Hotel and Paragon Shopping Centre.
MANDY WU VERENA NECKLACE & MALIN & MALDEN RINGS
Support Singapore’s emerging jewellery designers by snapping up this rhodium-coated brass Verena necklace, $225, by Mandy Wu; add a couple of sets of her Malin & Malden rings, $105, ‒ why not? The price is amazingly affordable ‒ and you can add a touch of elegant punk to your office outfit. Mandy Wu jewellery is available from SheShops online store, go to shop.sheshops.com/mandy-wu to shop.
MARNI LEATHER & BRASS GEOMETRIC COLLAR & CUFFS
If you’re not into wearing earrings go with some fabulous, solid cuffs like these leather, brass and stone ones from Marni.

Available from Marni boutiques located in Hilton Hotel and Paragon Shopping Centre.
