Like Prince sang, “If I gave you diamonds and pearls, would you be a happy boy or a girl??”—the answer to that question is a resounding YES! Growing up, I always saw my grandmother in her statement pearls. Whether it was a pair of stud earrings, a doubled up strand around her neck, or a dainty ring, she made sure to regularly incorporate them into her accessory rotation.
Back in the day women used to reserve their pearls for a special occasion or when they wanted to feel pulled together and proper. But now, pearls seem to be popping up in a casual, louche way that screams Jane Birkin cool and preppy all at the same time. There are pearl adorned hair clips, bags, shoes, even this sexy 70s-esque tank from Donni.
Pearls add texture and depth to that stack of fine gold chains that I know you wear everyday so I encourage you to look in your jewelry box, find your strand from 8thgrade, and give it a whirl!
