'The Great Gatsby' directed by Baz Luhrmann in 2013 has caused a stir in the fashion world. The film has piqued a younger consumer base's interest in pearls. Many have the misconception that pearls are for mature, older women but this film has flipped a switch in the teen and young adult crowd. Everyone wants to look as elegant and glamorous as Daisy Buchanan played by Carrie Mulligan. If you want Daisy's look, the key is to mix pearls and diamonds by layering and stacking them. The pearls add interest and glamour to Daisy's already fabulous attire. You can tell with just a glance that she is the quintessential flapper.
If the 1920s flapper look isn't your cup of tea, there are a variety of other ways you can wear pearls. You can pair them with a great pair of jeans and a blazer to add instant pizzazz to your outfit or add them to a fitted black dress you can rock anywhere. The sky is the limit, and remember, you can never have too many pearls.
