No matter your politics, you must admit that Nanci Pelosi looks fabulous! She looks modern, classy, and powerful.
She’s got it right – classic, fitted feminine suits (instead of those awful boxy, masculine types) made from luxurious fabrics in vibrant colors.
But, it’s her power pearls that are all the talk! Check out her large-sized South Seas and Tahitian pearls, especially the gray and cream strand of marble-sized pearls she’s been sporting with dark suits and tweeds. Although the real thing can set you back at least $20,000 or more, these make the statement that I am a woman and powerful!
These pearls are great because, while they set a conservative tone like all pearls to do (and that’s what we want in business), there is a twist. The unique color is modern and fresh and sends the message that Nancy’s ideas are that way too. The large size sends the message of “elegant authority.”
Imagine Nancy in a string of tiny cream pearls or a teeny thin gold chain with a delicate teardrop diamond hanging down. She wouldn’t have the same presence or authority. She would seem weak and outdated.
So the lesson here is: Women in positions of power, be aware of your jewelry’s message. You don’t need much, just a couple of statement pieces that let you enjoy your femininity but show that you mean business. Check out this post for more lessons on wearing the right necklace to match your outfit.
