How to Wear ?
Dusting off their sometimes too-proper reputation, pearls got funky on the
runway this year.
Long necklaces piled on with metal necklaces; tight, swirling chokers; pasted to
model’s faces; used as hairbands.
Your Way :
You can paste a pearl to your face if you wish, but otherwise, take the
designers’ passion for pearls as a starting point. If you want to layer a long pearl
strand with a metal necklace, better to go with faux pearls — real ones will get nicked
and lose their nacre when subjected to the harder metals. However, you can wear the
pearl and metal trend with a station necklace — metal chain linking real pearls. Get
the hairband look with faux pearls, too; real pearls can easily come unstrung, and
hair products like spray or gel may damage them.
If you have a longer strand of pearls, double it up for a choker or wear one larger
pearl pendant close to your neck. Bracelets, rings and pins with pearls are also
looking fresh for the season. Earrings are also a way to showcase pearls.
Finally, brooch the subject
Brooches roared out of the past for fall fashion. Gigantic, flashy and
festooned with diamonds and gemstones, brooches and pins are being designed in
circles, initials, and free-form abstract designs. And by big, we mean some the size
of your hand.
Your Way :
This is one runway look that’s actually easier to pull off than most. Even
if you don’t go for an insanely oversized brooch, an ornate pin on a jacket, bag or a
couple used to adorn ballet flats will embellish your look. You can even use one to
pin together a scarf, which is a perfect look for the fall!
Long & fringe-y
Fringe is big in apparel, accessories and jewellery this fall. Styles include
long earrings in gold and fabric that brush the shoulders; bracelets with chains of
metal falling over the hand; piles of necklaces with lots of fringe or a fall of delicate
chain fringe on pendants in 20-inch lengths or longer.
Your Way :
Frankly, the long-fringed bracelet looks like it could be aggravating, but
a shorter length will be more comfortable and less likely to snag or tangle. The rest
of this trend is remarkably easy to wear, in gold or sterling silver. Earrings with
shorter fringe look and feel great, and a long necklace with fringe is a fabulous way
to make this look your own.
