What a way to wear the pearls

5 Aug

If you live in Lagos, then you know how one thing becomes a trend and every where you go, there’s someone wearing a version of it. After a while you kinda get tired and start looking out for something new. I guess it’s because here, we don’t have the regular seasonal fashion and beauty trends as there is globally, so some trends can stay for months and months.

I  recently started feeling that way about layered pearl necklaces. Literally EVERY girl in Lag has got one. In varying numbers of layers, thickness and lengths etc, there’s someone wearing a layered pearl necklace every where you turn.

As worn by Rihanna, this is the general look you see every where in Lag

Now pearls are a classic as far as jewelry is concerned, from the days of Coco Chanel to Audrey Hepburn, they represent a certain type of style, that tres chic, timeless look.

They will always be around in one form of the other! So imagine my excitement when I came upon this selection on Fashionologie.  I love fashion creative directors for this reason, they always push the boundaries and invent something new out of the old; just when you think you’ve seen it all.

A bunch of them just made me very happy, they gave the classic pearls a proper facelift and right there in the line up is one of my all time favourites Lanvin.

My fav of the collection today has got to be the Kate Spade though, Simply stunning.
