Stylish Traveller: Pearls of Summer
Long, loose strands of pearls from Mikimoto, Tara and David Yurman are this season's must-have fashion accessory.
Synonymous with that which is precious and rare, pearls—and more pearls—are this season’s fashion indulgence.
Long, loose and lots of them. Tangle them in ropes; pair them with gold or silver chains; or intertwine with semi-precious stones. That’s the look for pearls this season. And the longer the better, with nothing more seductive than a bare back caressed by their lustre. Their classic beauty makes them equally appropriate for the office or the opera, with the fashion-conscious seeing fit to wear them with denim for an edgy, downtown look. And they’re perfectly packable, so go ahead and add a strand or two—or three—to your jewellery roll for a weekend in the country, or more exotic adventures where you want to pump up the style quotient.
At any length, pearls are summer’s must-have fashion accessory.
Mikimoto‘s dramatic 100-inch strand of akoya pearls (pictured) is nearly 9 feet of glamour to be worn long, knotted or wrapped several times to create a variety of different looks. If colour calls, add a strand of multicolour Tahitian pearls from Tara pearls, available at Lussori. Or mix things up for a modern twist with gold cable chains and freshwater pearls from David Yurman.
We dare you to wear them all.
