WEARING PEARLS: STEP OUTSIDE YOUR COMFORT ZONE

June 16, 2015 by Melissa

Almost anyone can wear a strand of pearls and look elegant. It is the versatility of the classic pearl necklace which explains its continuing popularity. But what if you’re looking for something different, a way to wear pearls that will make you stand out in a crowd? Look to the following suggestions on how to put a spin on the classic pearl and make it your own.

  1. Consider a pearl hairpiece

Headbands and barrettes of pearls are a beautiful yet simple way to wear these beautiful gems in a different and unexpected way.

  1. Pearl rings

A single pearl incorporated into a ring setting may not seem that progressive. But pearl rings come in a variety of sizes and designs. Look for an eye-catching piece that will add a spark to any wardrobe.

  1. Sometimes more is more

When all else fails, look to layering to give classic pearls a modern look. Try layering multiple stands of pearls with one another, or even with necklaces of other materials for an overall eye-catching aesthetic.

  1. Reconsider your routine

Do you fund yourself saving your pearls for special occasions? Do you rarely think to wear pearls with your more casual attire? Try pairing pearls with jeans and even t-shirts to add a little glamour to the everyday.

  1. Try a shot of color

Is your pearl collection primarily of the white variety? Pearls come in many colors, from iridescent white, cream and pink to green and even black. You’d be surprised how much different colors of pearls can add to your wardrobe.
