Mood Board Monday: Pearl Girls

  • Sharebar

Pearl jewelry has long been a staple in every woman’s closet, from the Queen of England to more budget-conscious style mavens. Versatile and vital for layering, pearls are perfect for creating a variety of looks, from classic prep to rocker chick rebel, à la Rihanna. As the flappers of the 1920s proved, pearls are both classy and rambunctious. Coco Chanel pioneered faux pearls as a phenomenal way to enliven any Little Black Dress in Jazz Age Paris.

Standing the test of time, pearls are making a resurgence on the runways, from Chanel to the more grunge-girl vibe of Balmain. Not ready for a full-on pearlescent ensemble? Try a pearl manicure, like Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere. Pile pearls over a plain white tee for day – just keep the rest simple, with tattered jeans and dainty ballet flats. Tuck a pearl-bedecked bobby pin into a casual chignon, or wear a long strand backwards, draped down the nape of your neck. The possibilities are endless, and you don’t have to stick to a sorority girl vibe — get out of the box and into the avant-garde pool of pearl beauty!
