How to Wear Pearls: From Every Day to Wedding Day

Though the more formal, vintage look of pearls can make them daunting to incorporate into your look, pearls add a sophisticated touch to any outfit, for any occasion. Keep pearls in your regular jewelry rotation with the suggestions below.

How to Wear Pearls Every Day

Instantly make a t-shirt, jeans and sneakers outfit or casual dress look pulled together with a pearl accent. Stick with simple, dainty pieces for everyday wear.

Simple Pearl Studs

A pair of pearl studs compliment an array of styles. One of the more youthful pearl fashion trends, pearl studs can be found in a wide range of price points.

A Dainty Pearl Pendant

A pearl pendant on a classic silver or gold chain is the ultimate everyday necklace, and adds subtle sophistication to any outfit.

A Pearl Ring

With its neutral color and warm luster, a pearl ring makes a stunning statement on its own, while also pairing well with other rings or bracelets.

How to Wear Pearls for a Night Out

Some occasions call for an extra dose of style. Up the ante on your next night out with pearls that take an outfit from predictable to head-turning.

Layered Pearls

Turn a basic outfit into a night out look by layering strands of pearls of varying sizes and lengths over a simple dress or blouse with dark wash jeans.

A Knotted Pearl Necklace

Long strands of pearls are typically worn for more formal occasions, but can easily be dressed down by knotting the strand.

A Pearl Necklace Wrapped into a Bracelet

Take a festive approach to the pearl bracelet by wrapping a pearl necklace around your wrist multiple times until you’re able to clasp it without the bracelet slipping off.

How to Wear Pearls to the Office

Keep pearl accents in the office clean and uncomplicated with single strands that add a touch of elegance to your business casual attire.

A Single Strand Pearl Necklace

Depending on the neckline of your top, wear a choker or matinee length necklace for the office. For example, a choker may look better with a button-down blouse, while a crew neck top may look better with a matinee length necklace.

A Single Strand Pearl Bracelet

For a more understated approach to pearls in the office, opt for a simple, elegant pearl bracelet.

How to Wear Pearls to a Formal Event

From a dose of drama to classic vintage glamour, pearls give your formal attire the personality it needs to be truly unforgettable.

Black Pearls

With the elegance of pearls and boldness of classic black, black pearl jewelry is perfect for a formal event. Pair your black pearl piece with a dark gown for a dramatic, monochrome look.

A Long Strand of Pearls

Long strands of pearls, also known as opera length pearls, have long been the quintessential formal occasion necklace. If your gown is backless, wear them draped over your shoulders and down your back for an unexpected twist on this traditional piece.

Statement Pieces

Statement pieces that include both pearls and gemstones give your formal attire the glitz the occasion deserves. Try a pearl brooch, stunning necklace or dazzling earrings to stand out at your next formal event.

How to Wear Pearls on Your Wedding Day

You’ll look back on photos of your big day for the rest of your life. Make sure your jewelry is timeless by selecting the perfect pearl pieces.

Pearl Drop Earrings

Pearl drop earrings are a classic wedding jewelry choice, and can be found in a range of styles, from simple to extravagant.

Pearl and Diamond Pieces

Whether it’s earrings, a necklace, a bracelet or a right-hand ring, any piece that combines both pearls and diamonds exudes bridal elegance.

Heirloom Pearls

Pearl jewelry is often passed down within families for generations. If your family has a wedding-worthy pearl heirloom, wear it on your big day as your “something old.”

Pearl Necklace

If you don’t have any pearl heirloom pieces within your family, create your own by purchasing a necklace with a single pearl on a gold or silver chain. Then, celebrate your anniversary each year by adding another pearl to your necklace.
