There are certain accessories like handbags and jewelry that are simply timeless. A pearl necklace is something that will always look classic and feminine but is constantly being reinvented to be trendy and modern. While a pearl necklace is definitely something that will remain in your jewelry box for years to come, it is often perceived as being suitable for older traditional women, not young and hip Fashionistas.
This Fashionista proves that this is certainly not the case as she is demonstrating how pearls can actually create a modern and young look. This Fashionista looks anything but boring in her on trend pleated asymmetrical skirt and white tank. The accessories really add to the outfit — the floral pattern on her ballet flats, the blue rims on her sunglasses and, of course, the chunky pearl necklace — creating a polished yet youthful look. Her pearl necklace is a great transition piece as it looks sophisticated for a day at the office but would also perfectly complement a cocktail dress for a night on the town. So whether you favor a single strand or a chunky cluster like this Fashionista, pearls are a great way to add some interest into an ensemble.
If you love a chunky pearl necklace like the one in the pictured, then try something like this from Stella & Dot. If you simply aren’t into the idea of a pearl necklace but want to try pearls elsewhere, you can incorporate them into your outfit with a pair of earrings or a bracelet. This way the pearls will subtly enhance your look without being so prominent. For a little bit of variation, you could also try a necklace in a darker pearl colour for an edgier, less conventional look.
