Pearls For Halloween!

Pearls are always appropriate.

-Jackie Kennedy

We couldn’t agree more! So why not incorporate your favorite gem into your Halloween costume? Here are some fun ways to wear pearls to that costume party you got invited to!

1) Imitate one of your favorite “pearl girls” in history and pop culture! Here are some examples:

Audrey Hepburn in her iconic “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” outfit.

One of Rihanna’s many pearl looks!

Rihanna layered real and faux pearls for her runway look – you could do the same for your statement costume!

Some other icons known to rock the pearl look: Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Kennedy, Coco Chanel, Lucille Ball, and Lady Gaga. Get creative!

2) 1920’s Flapper

Flapper costumes are easy, fun, and beautiful! Enjoy a store-bought version or do-it-yourself!

3) The Silent Movie Actress

This one is great for DIY by yourself or with a partner! Dress in all black and white, paint your face so you look pale, add some bold, black make-up, don your favorite pearl strand, and carry a sign with your “lines” on it!

4) Mermaid

Why wouldn’t a beautiful sea creature wear pearls?! Incorporate pearl necklaces and ocean-inspired jewelry into your store-bought mermaid costume, or glue faux pearls to your DIY top.

Or try a combination of both! This one has endless possibilities. Here are some pictures for inspiration. (Including one by Kim Kardashian!)

5) Wilma Flintstone

Bet you didn’t think of this one! We didn’t forget Wilma’s love for her chunky pearl necklace. For extra fun, dress the whole family up as Flintstones!

6) Dr. Frank N. Furter

If you’ve ever seen Rocky Horror Picture Show, you know Tim Curry’s character rocks a very…um…unforgettable look. This one is fun for the girls, and for the guys (if they’re bold enough!)

Here are some photos that are slightly more modest than his movie version. Either way, you’re sure to be the life of the party!

  1. How could you have forgotten, the one the only, the classically beautiful: Elizabeth Taylor. Perfect LBD showing cleavage of course, maybe using one of the new cinchers to achieve that youthful teenie, tiny 19″ waist she had, black silk stockings, black satin kitten heel pumps and long or opera-length black gloves with LARGE GEM bracelet over glove. In fact , large gem jewelry all around. What would Liz have been without THE jewels from Richard. Just another sexy, brunette actress!
