Pearls: Changing It Up


I really don't like necklaces. I am not too into the whole chunky, bib necklace that has been so "in". I never really even purchase fashion necklaces. I really just stick to pearls and classic, simple necklaces. Most of the time, however, I don't even wear a necklace. Sometimes, I will whip out bold pearls such as my 5-strand set from J. Crew. However, you can switch it up with just one necklace!
This is how they normally look. While I love the look of this, it's good to have a change up and sometimes this doesn't go with all necklines.
A simple twist of the pearls and voila! You have a completely different looking necklace that looks much better with the neckline of this button down shirt.
This is a headband found at Forever 21 for $6! However, It doesn't work well in my hair so why did I buy it?
 Because I wanted an "edgier" pearl necklace! The gold chains add a little funk to the normal, conservative/preppy pearls.
Do you ever try to change around your costume jewelry? Have you tried to pair your fancy elastic headbands as necklaces or am I just weird? Have a fabulous day!
Yours,

SUPER cute pearls! :) Love the JCrew necklace. I find myself wearing pearls with EVERYTHING.

Have a great day!

I have a twisted pearl necklace like that from J.Crew that I haven't gotten around to wearing yet-now you've inspired me to pull it out!

This is such a good idea! I usually layer different costume jewelry pieces from Forever 21 for a different look than my usual pearls or cross necklace!

This is a great idea! Would have never thought of that! Thanks!

I with you on the bold necklaces...I'm not a fan either. But I do love what you've got going with the pearls! And thanks for sharing the headband/necklace idea!

Love, love, love pearls. I've always opted to wear the single strand, but I have a few of them laying around. Now you've inspired me to diy-it-up and try a new style!

I've definitely worn headbands as necklaces. No worries. Good post!

Love the J. Crew pearls! In October, I bought a necklace from Forever 21 for $5 and I've worn it so much! I didn't think I would ever wear it! Now I'm totally going to try the headband as a necklace! XO

That is pretty darn amazing, I never thought of that! (Like you and many others, big chunky statement necklaces are not my thing.)

Sending you a smile!

I just purchased the j.crew necklace that you own and I love it! Now however, I love it even more after the trick you shared. It looks so cute!

I have done the same thing with my pearls! I have twisted and untwisted... I am also guilty of using a head band like that as a necklace.. it was from BR and it was a chunky chain (but kept ripping out my hair!) voila, a cute necklace!

I love how that looks!

Jessica said...

I would have never thought to do that. I love the look of the twisted pearls with those tops!
