It used to be that ladies who lunch were stereotyped by certain qualities and lifestyle patterns. Think cardigans, all white suits, pristine French manicures and of course, pearls. In an era that celebrates all things conscious, thoughtful and sustainable, luxury investments are no longer based off logos or marketing hype.
Jewellery trends in 2021 focus on pieces that are versatile, understated yet and mindfully crafted. Case in point, the return of pearls. WHO WHAT WEAR reports: “This trend goes far beyond timeless studs and classic strands—Carolina Herrera and Versace made a case for piled on pearls, button earrings, and embellished bracelets with daywear.”
Style cognoscenti zoomed in on modern pearl earrings. Apart from pearls worn as studs, runways this season saw iterations inspired by geometry, movement and a juxtaposition of elements. Looks from Jason Wu Altuzarra, and Marni paint a pretty accurate picture of how modern ladies who lunch wear their jewellery.
