Pearls are something of a D.C. staple. And while they’re lovely, they do not go with everything in your wardrobe. Pearls should not be worn with sequin tops or contemporary, sleek dresses or polo shirts and shorts. They’re feminine and proper and they’re meant to be worn with other pieces that are prim and ladylike. Because when they’re worn incorrectly, they distract rather than enhance.
Personally, whether the pearls are real or glass, I prefer I multi-strand.
