We love pearls in all shapes and sizes! The pearl trend has been going strong for the past year and shows no signs of slowing down. Hop on this trend with us — in this post you'll learn how to style pearl necklaces in a modern and fashion-forward way. 

Go For The Irregular Pearl Shapes

If you’re a fashion enthusiast like us- you are probably also in love with freshwater pearls. They exist in all types of irregular, unique, and funky shapes, and that’s exactly what makes them so special.

Instead of opting for those classy, perfectly round pearls our mothers and grandmother used to love – go for necklaces featuring the ‘perfectly imperfect’ keshi or baroque pearls. It will instantly infuse your outfit with the right dose of modern and trendy feel without being over the top. Plus, isn’t it amazing to know that no other pearl like yours exists in the whole world?

Layer Pearls With Bold Gold Chains

You probably have that classy string of pearls that you got from your mom or grandma, and the one you've been saving for special occasions. Guess what? It's time to dig it out and add it to your every day jewelry stack!

To make a modern and trendy layering combo out of that elegant pearl strand, just jazz it up with another chunky gold chain or a bunch of mismatching chains of different lengths and textures for that edgy and fashion forward, more is more kind of look.

Adding some bold chunky accessories like stackable gold rings and gold hoop earrings will finish off the look.

Style Pearls With Your Basics

Gone are the days when we were wearing pearls for special occasions only. Here’s a tip: forget about evening dresses and heals, and style your pearl necklace with tee shirts, tank tops, sweatshirts and oversized shirts instead. It will instantly elevate your casual look and add just the right dose of effortless chic to whatever you are wearing. Add your favourite jeans and sneakers (or a pair of cool heels) to complete the look. That's the way to wear pearls in 2023
