Hi, ladies! Unless you’ve been living en otro planeta, you know that Fall’s must-have fashion accessory is the gold multistrand necklace–or simply, the layering of several gold necklaces of different lengths and styles. The trend was all over Givenchy’s Fall ‘08 show, and celebs like Madonna and Rihanna have been rocking it everywhere.
Some women even go the extra mile by wearing a pearl multistrand necklace. Me? I’ve never been a fan of pearls–well, let me rephrase that–of wearing pearls. Sure , I admire a woman who can effortlessly wear perlas the way I would wear a simple gold necklace. But when I try the look, I always feel a bit stuffy and too “done up.” I think I’ve found a solution, though: Mary’s Faux Pearl Layered Necklace ($60, emitations.com). It has the same modern and chic effect that Mademoiselle “Coco” Chanel herself likely intended when she first introduced the look in the 1940’s. Add it to the most casual of outfits (blazer, t-shirt and boyfriend jeans a la Katie Holmes), or to a simple evening dress that needs a little pick-me-up.
Ladies, do you feel chic or stuffy when you wear pearls? And what’s the one accessory you can’t live without this season? Let me know…see you at the next session!
