Yes, it is possible to wear pearls and still look modern!
Pearls are one of those pieces that are often considered old-fashioned and too classic. But the 2017 catwalks took this accessory to the next level giving it a modern twist. In fact, pearl embellishment started appearing on clothes and accessories, and pearls made a big comeback.
But How to Wear Pearls and Look Modern? Forget the pearl necklaces for a moment, even if you love them as I do! Pearls are now embellishing clothes, denim, shoes, bags and they are also big as a hair accessory.
Pearls are still a significant trend this year, and they can be found on all the best spring – summer 2018 high street fashion collections.
How to wear pearls: If you want to be discrete, you can choose to wear them as accessories, such as earrings (or try big statement earrings) or hair clips but if you are ready to take this trend to the next level, choose a pair of embellished pearl jeans or a jumper. I also love pearls on the shoes and bags. You can never have too many pearls embellished clothes and accessories in your closet!
How to wear pearls the 2018 way matching them with other trends
Today I will show you how I created a look matching my Marks and Spencer pearl jumper with some other trends: the checked coat and some leopard print accessories.
I love this pearl embellished jumper because It is the perfect piece to style up every look. You can wear it with denim or with a skirt. I matched it with a camel leather skirt because I like the association of grey and camel. As the weather is still cold, I wore this checked coat that I paired with my favourite leopard print ankle boots and a bag with some leopard print details. As the day was quite sunny (finally!), I wore some sunglasses!
This season is about mixing prints, such as florals and polka dots or checks. You can try these trends starting with small prints and accessories!
The items in this outfit posts are from high street fashion brands such as the ones in my previous outfit posts, and they are very affordable. You don’t need to spend a fortune to be stylish!
