Fashion icon Coco Chanel once said, “A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls.” I suspect its because she knew that they’re the one and only piece of jewelry that looks great on everyone. Even though Ms. Coco may have uttered these famous words more than 80 years ago, don’t let the pre-21st Century date fool you. These are not your grandmother’s jewels. I chose to accessorize this outfit with the more traditional double strand, but that’s the cool thing about fashion. There are no rules. And, in the spirit of the woman … the anarchist … the legend whose name has become synonymous with class and style, the more pearls, the better. What about you? What’s your favorite way to wear your pearls? Tell me in the comments below.
