Although she passed away on April 17th at the age of 92, Barbara Bush has changed the way we wear jewelry - especially pearls. At her husband's inauguration, she donned a faux pearl necklace. Being a civil rights advocate, she was always in the spotlight with her jewelry.
Since President Bush's inauguration, Barbara made pearls a trend again, inspiring women and girls of all ages to bring back their pearls! And, if you didn't have pearls, statement-making three-strand necklaces were just as okay. She made it look effortless to throw on some earrings and a statement piece on your neck, no matter where you're going or what you're doing. Below is an image of the former first lady at the 2017 World Series; she's definitely rockin' her pearls!
Prior to her inspirational 'white jewelry' looks, wearing white was generally seen as a summer enjoyment; now, white has lost its stigma as being only seasonal, with women wearing their pearls and crystal earrings all year-round!
