The real reason why pearls will never go out of style

Is there anything more beautiful than a pearl?

Laura Sutcliffe

A girl and her pearls - is there anything quite so fabulous? Easier to style than you might think, the classic jewellery accessory will always elevate a look. Often feared for looking 'too much', pearls can be worked seamlessly into your wardrobe in a variety of ways; Whether it's a pair ofearrings, a pearl-encrusted cuff or even a chic pendant, you can never make the wrong choice - it's all about finding a piece to match your personality. If your style is eclectic, slightly bohemian or full-on-feminine, you can make pearls work for you in a modern way. Just take a look at the royals - the Duchess of Cambridge has worn pearls on countless occasions. She even introduced Prince Louis to the world wearing a pair of pearl drop earrings which were loaned to her by Prince William's grandmother the Queen. The simple earrings were a classic touch and gave her whole outfit a regal edge.
