I love wearing pearls. Nothing brings a touch of elegance to your outfit than a strand of pearls or a pair of pearl earrings. Many people save their pearls to wear with their favorite little black dress or pant suit. That needs to change. Once you know how to wear pearls with jeans, you’ll find yourself wearing them more often. This post has been sponsored.

How to Wear Pearls with Jeans

Pearls have been the jewelry accessory of choice for hundreds of years. Just imagine your favorite historical woman and chances are she was draped with pearls. I don’t recall the last time I had reason to put on a cocktail dress and I often feel as though my pearls are being neglected for this reason. No worries, the latest fashion trend is pairing your pearls with a casual outfit like jeans.

  • If you are pairing pearls with a simple outfit like a pair of skinny jeans and a black shirt, you can make a dramatic statement by choosing a double strand of pearls that falls mid decollete to draw attention without overwhelming.
  • If your outfit is more colorful like a sundress or patterned or textured top, choose a single strand pearl necklace instead.
  • Your pearls really should take center stage in your outfit so be cautious when pairing them with other jewelry especially those pieces that are flamboyant. If you choose a pair of pearl earrings, you really only need a simple gold chain for a necklace.
  • Think outside the box. You can wear a pearl necklace as a bracelet, use it to accessorize a swept up hairdo or be creative and knot a long pearl necklace to make it shorter.
  • Don’t feel limited. Pearls work just as well with dressy black jeans, heels and a silk blouse as they do with cut offs and a casual t-shirt. Create your own look.
  • Experiment with different styles. Pearl necklaces are available as a collar, choker, in princess length, matinee length, opera length or as a rope or lariat. Try wearing more than one at the same time.

Laguna Pearl was created as a result of the public demand for high quality pearl jewelry at competitive pricing. With their roots as a wholesale pearl jewelry operation, their organization has striven to cut out the middle man and sell directly to the retail jewelry consumer. As opposed to selling pearl jewelry products to retail jewelers who mark the prices up 2 to 3 times their cost, they have built their online business by passing on the savings directly to the consumer.

No matter what outfit you choose to wear your pearls with, you’ll look and feel amazing. Somehow, pearls just manage to make me feel just a little bit more feminine and sophisticated than any other piece of jewelry does.  To shop this look:

Distressed Skinny Jeans $158 | Lace Tank $198

  1. I have a pair of pearls but never thought to wear them with jeans. look nice!

  2. This is so cute! I literally just bought a purse identical to the one you have pictured! It’s my new favorite.

  3. I have not been able to pull that look off before, but I do  need more excuses to wear my pearls. I am loving those shoes I have a similar pair in black.

  4. These are great to wear with pearls and jeans. I think its fun to add nice accessories to jeans, makes you feel dressed up.

  5. I think pearls are one of those things that can go with almost anything. They’re so neutral that they just work!

  6. I don’t think of wearing pearls with jeans, although I don’t wear jeans much. I just find it too hot of a material when it’s mostly mid 70s most days. I also can’t get used to the ripped jeans fad–just doesn’t appeal to me and probably never will lol. I have repaired some holes in jeans, otherwise you would see my backside, and that’s never in style! Love pearls though and have many sets and many colors, so must wear them more.
