Trendy Tuesday - Oversized Pearls

These are not your mama’s pearls! Karl Lagerfeld puts a modern day twist on Coco Chanel’s classic strand of pearls, with statement making over-sized pearl necklaces for spring. The stand out accessories were all over his spring 2014 runway, especially the ear-phone inspired choker necklaces, that accompanied almost every single look.

“My favourite thing is the new necklace like an earphone, its two huge pearls, but in fact it’s very flattering because the huge pearls give a beautiful light on the girl’s face.” Lagerfeld said.

The giant pearls were also an editorial hit, dominating fashion magazine covers earlier this year including Harper's Bazaar UK, Vogue Australia and Vogue Italia.

This must-have spring trend even trickled into Chanel’s fall show in Paris this morning with cluster necklaces, a little like this oversized faux pearl necklace I recently bought from Forever 21, because of course I had to hop on this trend!

Looks like the one I bought is already sold out online! (with no surprise) but here are some other affordable options for you to enjoy this fab spring trend as well!

1. Iconic Tweed Headband, Forever 21, $5.80, 2. Regal Faux Pearl Cuff, Forever 21, $7.80
3. Juliet & Company Oversized Pear Studs, Shopbop, $24.16

This is definitely a trend I think anyone can pull off, so what do you think? Is it one you’re willing to try?
