Retro Pearl Necklaces Are Back, Here’s How To Wear Them
When you imagine pearls, you probably think of either women your grandmother’s age or something you wore to a 1920s fancy dress party. But, we’re happy to report that pearls have been given a 2020 makeover and pearl necklaces, specifically have been trending amongst the fashion pack. With new designs popping up all over our feeds, we’ve put together an edit of the best styles to shop now and inspiration from our favourite fashion influencers on how to style them.

When it comes to styling your pearls, you don’t have to go fancy! Pearls are the perfect way to add a touch of elegance to your jeans and t-shirt, as demonstrated by Blackpink’s Jennie. Follow her lead and try a pearl pendant as part of your everyday look.
It-girls like Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Madison Beer love to wear pearls but manage to style them in a way that looks cool and modern, never stuffy. Their looks often juxtapose soft pearls with boyish fits and oversized tailoring, like how Bella paired an oversized leather blazer with a bucket hat and a pearl necklace and Madison and Kendall opted for 90s-style crop tops.
Copy this look at home and pair an oversized blazer and slouchy tailored trousers for the perfect combo.
Pendant Pearl Necklaces
Lots of new pearl necklaces we’ve seen cropping up are taking traditional designs and making them much more cooler with added ribbons, pendants and charms for a personal touch. We love that these styles feel much more contemporary and look great layered, clashing with other fine-gold pieces and crystals for a modern feel.
