There is no doubt that pearls are an iconic symbol for elegance and glamour. They give off the feeling of being classy, fully dressed and ready for the world. But unlike the pearl necklace we know best from Jackie O and Grace Kelly’s signature styles, fashion trends are having a renaissance in these beautiful gems.
Stella McCartney created the twisted pearl look along the collarbone for autumn/fall 2015. Miu Miu paired the gems with bright colours in 2016 while Chanel placed piles of large pearl strands at Grand Palais. Fashion’s latest extravaganza showed us one thing in common – Pearls have now become a statement piece, and are no longer reserved only for the traditional style we've known about for years.
The key to pulling off a cool look with pearls is to wear them as a subtle statement accessory. Try mixing different pearl shapes and colours if you’re pairing with something plain. You’ll achieve the best look when you use pearls as an accent to your outfit. Ear jackets, for instance, are really cool to wear with jeans and leather. Add an eye-catching bracelet or necklace made with baroque pearls to your ensemble for a fun and sophisticated style.
For those who fancy something bold, go for pearl studded accessories like this backpack or the mid-heel loafer. Celebrate this classic gem with a modern twist. You’ll be surprised how cool they look!
