Whether eloquently draped upon countless decolletages of the roaring ’20s or sported by your chic grandmother while she tended to her housewife duties, pearls have always made a statement all their own. Although undeniably timeless, in recent years, the acclaimed pearl accessory has managed to fall off the map, or so it seemed. Leave it to none other than the likes of Karl Lagerfeld to re-inject life into the staple, generating a slew of pearl encrusted sunglasses and an unfathomable amount of crazed Fashionistas/os lusting after them (myself included). Coincidentally, I stumbled upon a fellow Fashionista who felt a similar inclination.
Although the pearl has a lush and extensive history, take a note from this Fashionista and keep the look fresh with a pearl collar. It serves up an unexpected twist to the modern notion of what constitutes a pearl necklace. Classic staples such as this chambray button-down keep this look modern and allow the pearl accents to take center stage. Top it off with a punchy pair of fitted shorts and you will be one step ahead of the sweltering weather that is just around the corner.
Pair this beauty with your favorite denim button-down to achieve a similar look and deviate from the antiquated side of the spectrum. And if you find yourself a member of the Chanel daydreamers club, Etsy offers us a wide array of floral and pearl sunglasses that will surely have you turning heads this spring. So don’t hesitate to ditch those tired notions and give June Cleaver a run for her money this season!
