While the luxurious and classic pearl necklace was once reserved for formal functions and galas, it has now returned to the forefront of fashion as a mainstay in one’s jewellery box. If you’ve previously regarded pearls as grandmotherly or out of style, you may want to take a closer look at this season’s runways. From Chanel to Rag Bone, delicate pearls have been sweeping the catwalks everywhere- and just may become your new accessory favourite this winter.
If your day involves watching the game or spending time with family, you can still incorporate ladylike pearls into your athleisure statement. Just take a glance at the Rag Bone runways, where a delicate pearl choker was paired with an oversized black and white jersey. Oversized knits, track jackets and soft sweatshirts can easily receive an unexpected dose of glam, in the form of luminous pearl accents.
For the business week, try accenting a bright pink tweed blazer with a statement string of pearls (as spotted at Chanel). Not only does this vintage inspired look immediately bring the classic style of Jackie O. to mind, it also looks perfectly polished for any meetings on your agenda. Add a delicate knit scarf, matching tweed skirt and metallic bangles for a final touch, before you begin your day.
Pearls are also flawlessly suited for any evening occasions, particularly ones where timeless elegance is the look du jour. Slip on a pretty metallic hand bracelet adorned with accent pearls, as seen at Gucci. Add a magnificent powder blue wool cape over a frock with ruffled sleeves, and allow your jewellery to truly do the talking against a milky, pastel colour palette.
