There’s no escaping testing occasions, whether it be a job interview or an important meeting at work. While preparation is key, so much of how you cope with the situation is down to confidence, and what you wear - how you look and feel - plays a huge part in that.
This is a Marie Claire advertorial. You might have a go-to outfit, perhaps a crisp cotton shirt and a pencil skirt, but don’t underestimate the impact of the finishing touches that we like to call our ‘Power Pieces’. Guaranteed to pull your look together in an instant, a carefully-selected Power Piece will empower you and act as the thing that reminds you to stand tall when you feel or look at it. From statement-making bangles to sophisticated earrings, Swarovski has a truly covetable line-up of Power Pieces, but we’ve managed to edit our favourites down to three absolute must-haves…
The All Day Earrings Set If you think the nerves will set in then we’d recommend tying up your hair; it will look polished and also stop you from playing with it. With hair up, you’ll need a sophisticated pair of earrings to complement the up-do so pick between the ladylike crystal pearls or the everyday sparkle of the crystal solitaire studs in Swarovski’s ever-reliable set
The Distinct Bangle Roll up your sleeves and get down to business, letting Swarovski’s Distinct Bangle add brilliance to your wrist. A contemporary design with sparkling crystal pavé embellishment, it is feminine yet undeniably fierce; the perfect combination.
The Dynamic Pendant Dynamic in name, dynamic in nature; this multi-tone pendant will look equally good layered over a round neck sweater as it will nestled at the collar of a silk blouse.
