I love ladylike jewelry, but I want to steer clear of the matching pearls aesthetic of a ’50s housewife. How can I get the look in a modern way?
Ladylike jewelry is a timeless staple, and the classic shapes never go out of style. You’re right to want to stay away from matching sets. Mix it up with delicate, vintage-inspired polished stones and metals, feminine details like hearts or pearls, and bright stones or gems for an elegant, contemporary look. Once you pick out your pieces, wear them with jewel-neck jackets, full skirts, party dresses, and brightly colored cardigans. Or you can juxtapose the sweet jewelry with a leather jacket and ripped boyfriend jeans for a playful, edgy look.
