A timeless pairing: Pearls and Silk

\When it comes to fashion, there’s certain colours, patterns and textures that complement each other and others that don’t. Oftentimes, playing around with pieces (whether in a store, online, or in front of your mirror) is how you determine whether they create a cohesive outfit or not.

It’s worthwhile wearing pieces that complement each other instead of clash, so you feel confident in what you’re wearing.   Each piece has its own time to shine, and you will look great in photographs (there’s nothing worse than looking back at photos thinking “what was I wearing?”).

A timeless pairing is pearls and silk. This combination has stood the test of time, and it’s no surprise as to why. The fabric and jewellery both emit a lovely sheen, they’re both classics, they don’t outshine one another, and they’re both typically worn to special occasions.  

Pearls and silk is a divine look for a Mother of the Bride / Groom or a guest attending a formal or cocktail event. Dress in this combo, and you’ll undoubtedly look and feel luxurious!  Wearing pearl accessories with your silk dress or two-piece set will truly elevate your look, and make you feel that extra bit fancy and luxe.

Here at Living Silk, we stock a beautiful collection of Swarovski Pearl pieces, that pair wonderfully with our garments, especially the pure silk pieces.  The Classic Pearl Strand and earring set is $159, as shown here with the Classic Wrap Shirt - Sky Blue  + Bohemian Skirt - Sky Blue.  

The Classic Pearl Strand is the perfect length to sit around your neck without hanging too low and covering the details of your dress or top. The earrings are a small single pearl, so aren’t too big or dangly that they detract from your outfit.

These timeless pieces of jewellery also make for an excellent gift—especially for a mum on Mother’s Day, Christmas, or her birthday. Both the strand and earrings come wrapped in a silk organza jewellery bag ready to give to a loved one.
