We have previously written about some of the classic style icons that have given pearls the timeless chic image they are famous for – Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, Chanel & Audrey Hepburn.
But modern style icons are also making their impression, giving pearls column inches for their fresh modern approach.
Today sees the opening of the new Sex and the City movie, and fashionistas are waiting with baited breath to see what amazing outfits will be worn by the 4 girls…
Carrie Bradshaw, the character played by Sarah-Jessica Parker, and styled by Patricia Field, had a favourite string of pearls that she wore throughout the first movie showing the flexibility of a favourite string of pearls.
– With a tight pink dress whilst shopping at Diane Von Furstenburg
– Add to a slouchy grey jersey top for working at home…
– For lunch with the girls, a silk shift top with layered necklaces.
– And who could forget the combination with pjamas, stiletto boots and long coat for running through the streets of New York to Miranda’s flat on New Years Eve
To get the look of Carrie Bradshaws pearls, choose an opera length (32 inches) stand of 8.5mm akoya pearls, available at Coleman Douglas Pearls from around £4,000.
Don’t forget that pearls love to be worn and will trancend any seasonal fashion or trends.
