Many moviegoers are excited to see the latest Tim Burton film, Alice in Wonderland, on the big screen.
The director’s stylized take on the timeless tale is sure to inspire the fashion world, and we’re betting that this spring will see a rise in simple and girlish jewelry as a result of the film.
The film follows 19-year-old Alice (Mia Wasikowska) as she makes her way down the rabbit hole for a second time and finds herself embroiled in a subversive plot against Wonderland’s cruel and greedy Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter).
Alice is the epitome of Edwardian grace and simplicity, and as such we expect that she might inspire a few clean-cut and simple ensembles accessorized with classic pearl earrings, a delicate gold locket or a sweet and simple charm bracelet.
In the film itself, Alice sports a sparkling gold charm on a thin gold chain.
If there are any garden parties or casual soirees in your future, channel the sweet and chic literary character’s style for a totally fresh look.
Though most ladies would agree that luminous and iridescent pearls are gorgeous, a lot of women are hesitant to wear the classic jewelry item because they’re not sure how to work them into a modern wardrobe.
But if Betty Draper can pull them off, we think that you can too.
The key with pearls is to just loosen up about them! They may bring to mind images of cocktail parties and corsets, but if you pair them with a causal ensemble they will lend an elegant edge to nearly any outfit.
A pair of pearl earrings with a black t-shirt or a long pearl necklace with a casual blouse will add an understated elegance and refinement to the overall look.
Pearl rings are especially versatile. They look great whether you favor a bohemian vibe or a more classically tailored style.
And, though many ladies hesitate to wear valuable items on a daily basis, traditional wisdom says that oils on your skin will actually protect and improve the appearance of pearls.
Big, sparkling post earrings are one of the next big jewelry trends, and plenty of stars are already on board with the craze.
Jennifer Lopez wore glittering, star-shaped baubles when she performed in Italy over the weekend, actress Elizabeth Banks donned big, elaborate diamond earrings to a recent event at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and fashion plate Ashley Olsen wore a similar pair to the Tommy Hilfiger Fall Fashion Show in New York City.
So how can you pull this look off for the office or a big night out? First, select the right diamond earrings. This trend is about fun and modern shapes, and for full impact they should be no smaller than the size of a quarter. (Crystal earrings will work for this style, too.)
If you plan to wear this look to the office, sweep your hair back into a loose bun and wear nude lipstick. If you’re heading out to paint the town red, go all out with bright lips and loose tresses.
Cancer is the fourth sign of the Zodiac. Symbolized by the crab, it is a water sign ruled by the moon and thus associated with silver and pearls, both of which reflect the moon’s glow.
Cancers are very connected to their roots and take great pleasure in the comforts of home and family. Cancers are maternal, domestic and love to nurture others. Like the crab that is their symbol, they are tenacious and strong-willed, and it is sometimes difficult to dig out their emotions. Deeply emotional and intuitive, Cancers’ main concern is their family.
Famous Cancers include Meryl Streep, John Cusak and Ginger Rogers.
A traditional silver bracelet such as this elegant link bracelet or a pair of pearl earrings would make the perfect gift for a Cancer.
Cancers need to be shown love, so this beautiful silver heart bracelet is another great way to show a Cancer they are appreciated.
You can also find necklaces with the Cancer sun sign pendant, which are perfect for younger Cancers.
