After suffering through stars running around without underwear last summer, the return to lady-like glamour has come back with a vengeance this summer. The stars are showing that everything old is new again by wearing variations of long or double-strand pearls. Sarah Jessica Parker, Ashlee Simpson, and Katherine Heigl have all displayed that this extremely versatile accessory can go from your grandmother’s jewelry box straight to the street.
Pearls can be the hardest working accessory you own, from long rope versions (à la Ashlee) to classic double strand (on Heigl and Parker). It just depends on how irreverent you want to be. Thinking about trying the trend? Let’s figure out which card you should use:
Platinum Card: Purchase a statement piece that you can hand down with this Majorca Nuage Endless Rope Necklace ($400).
Gold Card: If it’s a double strand you seek with a classic flair, try this Carolee Pearl 72" Necklace ($60).
Buy them and keep ‘em handy – this trend will be big for fall and will never truly go out of style.
