Need a Knitwear Accessory? Need a Pearl

January 27, 2015 by Melissa

The fashion police are being kind to us this year. The rise in knitwear as a winter fashion trend is just perfect, especially for those of us who struggle with the cold. This year`s knitted sweatshirts and chunky knitted hats are great for keeping us warm, but maybe not so easy to accessorize.

Accessorize with Pearls

They say that opposites attract and this can definitely be the case with jewelry. Try accessorizing your winter wardrobe with pearls.

This year polar necks are back in. One stunning way to accessorize a plain polar neck is by long strands of pearls or a pearl pendant necklace to give a funky, 60`s style. You can use a long string of small pearls, or go for a shorter strand of chunkier ones. If you go for the smaller pearls, you can also try layering these up with either other long strands which are similar, or with different colors, sizes and gem types.

Try accessorizing that chunky knitted sweatshirt with some equally chunky pearl earrings to get a more 80`s style. This will add a little more femininity to your outfit making you look and feel great and super stylish. A chunky pearl ring also works really well with this look, by both complimenting the knitted sweater, and also accentuating a feminine pair of hands.

A nice pair of dangly pearl earrings works particularly well with a knitted hat, adding back that sense of femininity which is lost when the hair is hidden.

If you have a collection of pearl jewelry, accessorizing this winter shouldn`t be that tough. By choosing the right pearl jewelry to match your knitwear, you can really turn your outfit from something plain and simple, to something striking and stylish, without compromising on keeping warm!
