As the legendary Coco Chanel once said, "A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls” and when it’s spring, we’d say you need even more! Only this time not just as jewelry but in your shoe, on the strap of your handbag and in your hair scrunchie too. From those elegant pearls and rhinestones dangling from septum and eyebrows of Naeem Khan’s models to the stunning trainers donned by Miu Miu ladies, our humble pearls have had a makeover and how.

By taking high inspiration from SS19’s not so conventional take on this deluxe gemstone, apparently it’s time to dust-away the grandma style notion of classics and let maximalism dominate your mainstream wardrobe this season.
Here we show you 4 ways to don pearls like never before.
1. Beachy pearl vacay – Beach reminisce of loose and carefree dressing but that doesn’t mean you can’t do it with style. Although, past trends have been definitive in highlighting what to wear when, but not anymore, 2019’s pearls know no rules. Take them to the beach! You can snug them in an open shell and rock it as a necklace or pair your pearl bracelet with chunky rings or don an embellished hair scrunchie to rock the effortless beachy-wavy hair look.
2. Glorified office look – In a workplace, it can be hard to celebrate and highlight an individual’s style against a pool of people but with the new age of pearls, it’s certainly easier. Look for a statement piece which is elite and feminine and most importantly choose what reflects your inner boss lady.

3. Party in pearls – Is it an uncommon duo? Well, Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman may have introduced us to it already, but this season you can surely turn the tables by donning pearls in more exotic ways than as a piece of mainstream jewelry. Ask Reese Witherspoon, she’s giving us goals with this little black dress take on this trend. You can also choose a fluidly tailored floral dress for day parties, it pairs well with pearls.

4. Laid-back and cool – No more a ‘country club’ cliché, pearls can really add a noteworthy glam to the simplest attires. When not in a mood to dress up, simply pull your favourite pair of denim, club it with a basic Tee and wear a pearl necklace to instantly pull your look together; whether you go shopping or have a coffee date with yourself, let pearls be your friend at all times.
