Few fashion items are as timeless or as versatile as pearls. Few faux gems look as good as simulated pearls. And few fashion trends could ask for a more ideal accessory.
Many high-fashion spring and summer looks include clothes with built-in pearl accessories. But one needn't break the bank to buy into the oyster-gem trend. Relatively inexpensive pearly looks include buttons, headbands, pearl-handled handbags, pearl-studded sunglasses and pearl-trimmed gloves.
If necklaces are your choice, think big. And long. And many. Earrings should swing. Bracelets mean at least three strands. Multiple strands should feature many bead sizes.
