Break the fashion rules. Erica Miller, Ikecho’s Director and Designer explains how to take your pearls from classic or contemporary to super-chic…
1. Pearl earrings are statement pieces
Especially if you’ve got good-sized pearls — these are best showcased alongside a simple, well-cut black dress, white blazer or lace top.
2. Mix your pearls
Don’t just stick to wearing all cultured pearls, mix them up with baroque or coloured pearls.
3. Pile those necklaces on
Pearls are perfect for layering. Find your favourite mix — wear them with more strands of pearls or even chain necklaces.
4. Go rogue and wear your pearls in your hair
You just have to search Pinterest to see wearing pearls in your hair is a huge trend in 2020.
5. Tahitian pearls are the new black
When in doubt, wear black — this is true for both fashion and pearl jewellery.
6. Wear pearls on the weekend
Don’t save your pearls just for work. Cool girls pair their expensive jewellery with T-shirts and jeans — the high-low contrast adds an instant edge to your look.
8. Baby got back
Switch how you wear your pearls. Wearing a long strand backwards makes an amazing statement, both front and back.
