Pearls are very much back in fashion these days. As a result of this, you’ll find that the rules about when and how they should be worn have changed. No longer are you restricted to wearing them on that special occasion? You can wear pearls whenever you like.
Their simple yet elegant appearance makes them a wonderful accessory for any outfit you wear. Whether it’s lunch with your friends, to work or a night out with your partner.
When worn in the right way they can help you look more sophisticated and elegant, yet fashionable. In some ways, some women would argue that wearing pearls is better than diamonds. They are so much more understated and will add a touch of elegance to any outfit without drawing attention to themselves.
If you are going to be looking at wearing pearls when you go to work there are certain rules you need to take into consideration. Below we offer up some advice that you may find useful on how to wear pearls when you go to work.
As you want to maintain a professional look at all times at work then you should only choose to wear simple understated pieces. It is best if you stick to wearing just one strand of pearls, as this will add a touch of sophistication to your complete outfit.
Also, it is best if you stick to wearing just one piece of pearl jewelry at any time. So if you are going to wear a set of pearl earrings, then avoid wearing a pearl necklace or bracelet as well. Remember you want not just your colleagues, but also your clients to focus on your work rather than what you are wearing.
If you are intending to wear a necklace that is made up of pearls then avoid ones that are too long. To keep looking smart and professional avoid wearing any kind of pearl necklace that is going to fall past your bust line.
Of course, instead of wearing a long pearl necklace in a conventional way there are other ways to incorporate such pieces into your work outfits. Take a long strand of pearls and wear as a bracelet. Simply wrap the strand around your wrist several times. Try and avoid allowing the bracelet to be too loose on your wrist or you may find it becomes a distraction whilst you are working.
When it comes to wearing earrings again it is best to keep things as simple as possible.
For a really sophisticated look, you should choose to wear a pair of pearl stud earrings only. Yes, plain white pearl stud earrings similar to those worn by celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Audrey Hepburn and the late Princess Diana look stunning. But why not take it up a notch and go for a pair where they’ve used say lavender, rose or silver pearls instead.
Of course, they don’t need to be plain some adornment around the pearls is perfectly acceptable. But keeping them small will help to ensure that people continue to focus on the work you do rather than what you look like.
Although most women would say stick to wearing say pieces of jewelry with white or cream pearls, you can be a little more out there if you want. There are some beautiful pieces now that have been created where the use of coloured freshwater pearls is favoured. The great thing about such pieces is that they can add a new dimension to the outfit you are wearing, but still add that touch of elegance as well.
If you really want to make a statement when it comes to pearls then wearing a piece made with Tahitian black pearls is something worth considering. Such pieces would really look stunning when worn with a crisp white blouse and a smart skirt or trouser suit. In fact, wearing such jewelry with trousers really helps to create a more feminine look to any business outfit.
As you can see when it comes to wearing pearls to the office there aren’t any real restrictions on how they should be worn. Really what is important is that you wear pieces of pearl jewelry that complement the rest of your outfit. Also, you wear pieces that won’t distract others around you and yet still add a touch of elegance and sophistication to the outfit you are wearing that day in the office.
