Pearls may come and go from the fashion spotlight, but as Jacqueline Kennedy once famously said, “Pearls are always appropriate.” And this Fall they’re on-trend too.
But before you get too excited and start digging out that pearl necklace that you lived in circa 1986, you should know that pearls are making their comeback in some unique and playful ways. The most modern way to wear them is anywhere but your neck. Here’s a look at some beautiful pearl clothing, and how to jump on board fall’s Pearl fashion trend.
1. Pearl Peek-a-Boo Sleeves
This pearl-trimmed sweater is the latest in pearl clothing. It provides a lovely, fresh twist on the popular statement sleeve trend. The sweater’s understated elegance makes it a natural partner for jeans, a pencil or A-line skirt, or your go-to little black pants. Bonus: the bateau neck is good at balancing a pear-shaped figure.
2. Dazzling Loafer Mules
Loafer mules like these elegant pearl mules are a big trend and for a good reason. Mules are comfortable, easy to slip on and can be worn with everything from pants to skirts to dresses. Readers are always asking me about where to find shoes that are both comfortable and stylish. Well, look no further than these.
3. Ruffled Pearl Blouse
This ruffle cuff shirt with pearl buttons is a fun and feminine take on the classic button down. I love the burgundy color for Fall. Tuck it into a pencil skirt or leave it loose over a pair of jeans.
4. Pearl Embellished Bag
Stylish women know that one or two standout accessories can easily elevate simple outfits. This posh scalloped pearl detail bag is just such an accessory. It’s the kind of piece that adds excitement to a simple little black dress or French-girl style to a pair of jeans, a white silk blouse, and pretty shoes. Gorgeous!
5. Starry Nights Pearl Cardigan
If you’re like a lot of women, when the weather turns colder, your trusty go-with-anything black cardigan is the first thing you reach for to stay warm. This year, why not stay warm and chic at the same time with this starry nights faux pearl detail cardigan where casual comfort meets refined style.
6. Not Your Grandma’s Pearls
The pearl necklace gets a decidedly modern edge with this knotted pearlized tier necklace from Ann Taylor. Coco Chanel herself would approve of strings of pearls that have been transformed into a pearl collar. This looks fabulous with plain top or tee and a pair of jeans.
7. Très Chic
Channel, your inner French woman with this pearl beret from Kate Spade. Made of felted wool with faux pearl embellishment, this chic beret makes you stand out from the crowd.
8. Well Heeled
If you’re finding black booties (a staple in many women’s fall footwear collections for more years than we can count), a little ho-hum and are looking for an update that is current, but not crazy-far-out there; these elegant, pearl-heeled booties may be just what you’re looking for. Don’t go wearing these in the mud!
