More Classic Hits – Pearls

Tuesday I shared with you my Great Gatsby version of the classic hit – pearls. Today we are going for even more! I have found some photos of inspirational looks that include pearls. Some are modern, some vintage and all get me thinking about looks I can bring together using my pearls.

I had to include several photos of Coco Chanel wearing pearls…because honestly…she is the original classic hit wearing pearls. Most impressive was her way of layering, stacking, mixing and matching. I’ve also put in a few shots of what I consider business appropriate pearls. Those looks with a plaid shirt and pearls because this is exactly the kind of combination I put together when wearing pearls to work.

Another favourite is bringing together a t-shirt and jacket with pearls. It’s a nice way to add a little chic to what can otherwise be a VERY casual look. Try it, if you are hanging out in jeans and a t-shirt and get called out to meet friends for lunch, a drink or a movie, put on a couple of strands of pearls and a jacket and you will look simple and chic.

One of my favourite looks for work is to start with a pencil skirt and a Ralph Lauren button-down business shirt (I have a great green one with pale lavender stripes and white-collar and cuffs), then add a few strands of pearls and a pair of heels. Look great for work and after work!

I also like twisting a strand of pearls with a couple of chains of different sizes to provide a harder edge that works well with a t-shirt, jeans and my black leather jacket.

There are so many ways to make pearls work for you. Is it any wonder they are a classic hit?
