Pearl jewellery has this air of royalty and affluence associated with it, which is why they are reserved for most formal occasions. You will not bring out your pearls unless there’s an important work meeting or a party with the extended family. What if we told you that you can style a pearl necklace with your everyday jeans and kurti just the same? Or that you can rock a pair of pearl earrings with a button-up top?
Traditional associations aside, the pearl is just another jewel, so why can it not be styled with casual wear? This is the perfect opportunity to give it a try if you haven't already. Blingvine has the perfect collection of pearl jewellery you can pair with any casual outfit for a dashing look!
Pearls Are Unique
Do you know that the pearl is among the few gemstones that occur naturally and organically? Pearls are extracted from oysters living deep within the seabed, and this makes every pearl unique. Even for the same pair of pearl earrings, each pearl will be different from the others.
This is why individuals who like pearls, believe that pearls can adapt themselves to reflect the nature of the wearer. Your pearl necklace will not only elevate your look but will also subtly tell a story about who you are. Every pearl has a certain aura of vitality and life in it. Your pearl jewellery can be a reflection of who you are and how you feel.
This is why people can form emotional bonds with their pearl jewellery and wear them only on special occasions. But, do all special occasions have to be formal? A trip with your childhood friends will be beyond special, but you would not bring your office suit along, right? What if we tell you that you can pair your favourite pearl necklace even with the sundress you are planning on wearing to the beach with your friends?
Styling Pearl Jewellery With Casual Outfits
Pearls can be just as trendy and casual as they are royal and sophisticated. As mentioned earlier, pearls can mirror your mood, so depending on the occasion, they can make a personalised fashion statement no matter what you style them with. There are many ways you can style your pearl necklace and pearl earrings with cool, casual outfits and look effortlessly stylish.
However, you must choose the jewellery correctly. After all, you want to give off a casual look, right? Wearing too many pearls or a heavy set will not really serve that purpose. Knowing how to pair your outfits with the right pearl jewellery is very important if you want to turn a few heads in your stead.
Single Strand/Pendant Necklace
This is the most versatile pearl necklace ever! You can style this with jeans and a top, or with a casual knee-length dress and look absolutely dapper. You may think that the pearls will look oddly styled with your casual look, but actually, this contrast will give your overall look an edgy sense of style.
A Helpful Tip: Match the pearl length with the neckline of the dress/top you are wearing.
Layered Pearl Necklace
Remember how we were talking about pairing pearls with a sundress? A layered pearl necklace will go perfectly and create that “messy” look that will beautifully complement your casual dress. These will also look great with strapless dresses and tops.
Coloured Pearl Necklace
You may have reservations about choosing coloured pearls with casual dresses. Let us reassure you that coloured pearls will look just as beautiful as white pearls. For dark-coloured tops, you can go with white or light-coloured pearls and vice versa. This contrast will steal the attention of your outfit and highlight your keen sense of style.
You can never go wrong with pearl studs. They will give you a calm and sophisticated look even with casual outfits. These pearl earrings are the go-to if you feel like your outfit is too much and a pearl necklace will look out of place.
Dangle Drop Pearl Earrings
Another crowd-pleaser, the dangle drop pearl earrings are divine in their fashion appeal. These will look great with any casual outfit if you are not in the mood to wear a pearl necklace but still want to highlight your pearl jewellery.
Why leave your pearls tucked away only for formal occasions? Pearls can be just as fun and trendy as they are regal! You can be sure that pearl jewellery can be very adaptable and used for multiple occasions. Browse through Blingvine’s exclusive collection of pearl jewellery and take your pick!
