Summertime in New Jersey can bring some pretty intense heat to the streets. Most kids leave town for the beach, or even take a dive in the local town pool. But how do Fashionistas cool off? By strutting the streets under some shady trees of course, and dressing the part! Not only should your layers be minimal and your fabrics light, but your accessories should be simplistic— you don’t need tons of jewelry weighing you down in the muggy heat. And what’s the most simplistic of jewelry staples for any lady’s wardrobe? Pearls, pearls and more pearls.
This Fashionista’s look is tied together with one common accessory, the pearls. Her bold yet simplistic statement necklace of chunky pearls sits perfectly on her neck, standing out against her pale pink top. The vintage earrings are studded with tiny crystals and pearls, bringing a bit more glam to the outfit. Her arms are clad with small strands of pearls as well. The thing about pearls is that they are timeless—they will never go out of style. Take a note from Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s: her effortlessly classic pearl necklaces are what make her outfits stand out as famously as they do in fashion history.
How To: This summer, we see a shift in the fashion world towards balancing out structured menswear cuts with feminine jewelry and accessories, and pearls are the perfect way to do so. Start with a classic pearl necklace, then maybe move your way up to a hairpiece like this pearl headband. Taking a modern spin on the classic jewel, you can find shirts with sewn on collars, for an easier, effortless look! No matter how you accessorize with your pearls, you can’t go wrong!
