“A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls,” said Coco Chanel. How perfect then that the classic accoutrement popped up all over the spring catwalks. Designers like Giambattista Valli, Luella and Lanvin dotted everything from ladylike purses to sky-high platforms. The freshest and most recession-proof way to wear them though is in multiple clusters and layered necklaces. Whatever the look, remember to put on your pearls, girls!
