How to Wear Pearls, Summer Edition

July 25, 2022Art of the Stack

This summer, we're all about channeling a coastal state of mind (see: our Vacation Shop), and pearls are a quick fix to get there.

And while you might be running to dust off your grandma's old pearls, allow us to show you our fresh selection of styles that are soon-to-become classics in your wardrobe.

From dainty and delicate to bold and brilliant, our pearl collection fits the bill for every occasion. Plus, our cultured pearls are carefully selected, each with its own natural radiance and texture, and should be treated with the utmost care—they are a tad sensitive, after all (pearls: they’re just like us).  

So all that is to say, pearls are here to stay—this summer, this year, and always. Here, our Fine Crew shows us how it's done.


GO BOLD

Life is complicated—styling pearls don’t have to be. To start, pair chains of varying shapes and sizes with the Bold Pearl Toggle Necklace for an expertly layered statement. We love how @_indu_ styles hers with a plunging v-neck for maximum impact.

Or let a single style do the work for you with our Dual Pearl Necklace, featuring contrasting sterling silver and freshwater pearls, like @ahalcyongirl, and prove that you really can have it both ways.

KEEP IT SIMPLE

Intentional styling is key here. Pair our Tiny Pearl Necklace or Essential Pearl Necklace against a failsafe outfit in a contrasting shade like @juliaajay (or take cues from the OG, Carrie Bradshaw, who styled her pearls with a men’s flannel) to make them pop. Balance it out with an easy gold hoop and a few of your favorite bold rings.

Also, if you haven’t noticed, guys are no strangers to pearls either—and we’re not just talking about Pharrell cameos in Chanel shows. Add an unexpected twist to any outfit with a string of pearls like @ekunwoo (even Lewis Hamilton, A$AP Rocky, and Harry Styles are co-signers of this look).

MAKE IT LAST

Ultimately, the easiest (and even edgiest) way to wear pearls is to work them into your daily rotation. Whether it’s a pearl necklace, bracelet, or ring, stack it up with your usual favorites playing supporting roles.
