I don’t know if it’s my sassy mood today or what, but I’m ready to make a bold proclamation.
Here it goes… Pearls are the perfect accessory.
(What… it’s like telling everyone who’s your favorite child.)
I can back this pearl favoritism up, though. And here’s why…
- They have the power to magically up-level any outfit, from a simple dress to a leather jacket to jeans and an off-the-shoulder tee.
- They work no matter what your style; preppy, edgy, or classic.
- You can wear the same pieces day after day after day, and for some off reason, no one thinks a thing about it.
- There is literally no such thing as too many. The more you add, the better your outfit gets.
Now, if you’ve been avoiding them because you think they’re too old lady-ish or because you haven’t been able to hunt down any fun ones, then read on sunshine. The Pearl offerings this Spring/Summer are daring and fresh. Anything but dated and old.
I broke them down by category, so all of you who have chosen your signature accessory are covered.

Let’s chat about rings first:
This season there are tons of super-fun, super-big options to play with.
Did you see the sale price??? Bonkers, right!
(Make sure and scroll to the bottom of the post for even more options.)
In the Top Jewelry Brands post a few weeks ago, pearl hoops were highlighted, but here is a dangly choice for all you gold metal girls out there.
Also, BOLO for mismatched pairs. The trend started last Spring and continues to gain traction as more designers are adding choices to the menu.
One word for pearl necklaces – gobs and gobs.
Whether you find a multi-strand piece you love or whether you layer several single strands you already own, it’ll be a hit. Be fearless and layer different sized pearls to keep it new. And don’t worry if the strands are different shades. Our goal isn’t to be too matchy-matchy.
I included this picture (even though it’s ugly) because it reminded me that we can add a brooch to really step it up. Not to mention, the added sparkle and uniqueness factor truly makes it your own.
For you bracelet fans out there, something to keep in mind is that for most of us, our necks are twice the diameter of our wrists. So you can usually twist a necklace twice and immediately transform it into a bracelet. And how much do we love multi-functional pieces!
I love the dichotomy of this leather and pearl bracelet. The classic, combined with the edgy, truly makes it modern and will be one of those pieces that can powerfully transform an otherwise everyday outfit.
They call it the Olivela Effect and every product page tells us exactly what impact our purchase has. #buysmartdogood
Put A Bow On It:
So, that’s a wrap. Let’s go dust off those pearls (or add some new ones to our collection) and pile them on the next time our ensemble needs a lift or a bold statement piece(s) to pull it all together.
Have Fun & ‘Til Next Week.
Hugs and happy shopping.
P.P.S. Swing by later this week when we’re going to chat about More Cute Dresses Shockingly Cheap.
