It doesn’t matter if you prefer a skinny silk scarf or a chunky choker—just make sure something is around your neck this fall to add a little extra oomph to everything from button-down blouses to cocktail dresses. And nope—it doesn’t make you basic.
Strings of pearls
The pearl has been emerging from the cocoon of its rather staid and traditional image for the past few seasons, revisited as ear cuffs and graphic chokers by a new generation of inspired young jewelry designers. But this winter sees a return to its Parisian roots, albeit with a vintage twist, as if it’s been borrowed and paired with denim patches, military jackets and the sports sweaters that are so very now.
The girl with the pearl earrings.
With the knowledge that her private tour of the gallery would involve a viewing of Johannes Vermeer's famous 'Girl With A Pearl Earring,' Kate, who is an art history graduate, chose to accessorize her Catherine Walker suit with a pair of pearl earrings borrowed from the Queen, the Telegraph reports.
Kate was shown works by the Dutch masters and paintings from the Queen's Royal Collection by the museum's director, Emilie Gordenker, who also thought pearl earrings would be a sensible jewellery choice for the occasion.
