TREND: PEARLS - Olivia Palermo

This summer it seems like everywhere we turn shiny pearls seem to be appearing and reappearing in collections from all types of designers and brands – both haute couture to the easily accessible alike. However, rather than a simple pair of studs or traditional preppy strands wrapped around a neck or wrist they’ve been given a huge dose of cool-girl edge by showing up oversized and wrapped around bracelets and chokers or stacked on rings and lined up along ear cuffs all the while mixing with a variety of materials like diamonds, gold studs, rose gold, gunmetal and glass crystals. Uptight and stuffy no more – say hello to a whole new alternative to update your jewelry box with.
