I adore the look of 50’s and 60’s plastic and glass beaded necklaces. This style of vintage jewelry appeals to me in fun colours like turquoise, red, green and yellow, but white really speaks to me too.

This type of jewelry aesthetic adds a great casual sense of humour to an outfit, whereas pearls, which have a vintage flavor too, feel a lot stricter and dressier. Pearls are a lot more buttoned-up. Perhaps that’s one of the reasons I’m so fond of wearing pearls since I’m in tune with my serious and strict side.

Vintage white beaded necklaces can be your fun, carefree and casual alternative to pearls. Imagine them with breezy Summer dresses and bold patterned tops. Very fab.
