What girl doesn’t love pearls? The quintessential girl next door accessory is in for spring. Fashion is making a return to old Hollywood trends. The days of Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn are back. Many celebs have been trading their bling for classic pearls, with a twist. Don’t save those pearls for just interviews and formals. Singe strand or multi strand? Opera length or matinee? The choice is up to you. You can go casual or glam it up Breakfast at Tiffanys Style.
All that is required is that you look good doing it. Check out Sarah Jessica Parker’s double strand necklace with a simple black dress. Effortless.
Following this trend is easy because you can get pearls at any price range. From fresh water, cultured, Tahitian, and Akoya pearls to faux peals like Swarovski and Czech bead pearls. I was at Nordstrom Rack the other day and saw a long strand of pearls for just $3.99. Just make sure the faux pearls you buy do not look like Mardi Gras beads, uh-uh! One piece of advice, save up money and buy yourself a real set of cultured pearl necklace and earrings set. Trust me, that will be one of the best investments you can ever make.
