Pearl Embellished Clothing | 5 Pretty Ways to Wear the Trend

Empty Nest Blessed by Suzy Mighell

Pearl embellished styles are popping up everywhere and we are so happy about it! Pearl embellished clothing and accessories are an easy way to dress up your everyday “uniform” and make it feel extra-special. Regal pearls can add a little glam to everything from street style to special-occasion looks.

If you’re up-to-date with the 2022 Fashion Trends, then you know pearls are coming back in unique ways. This year you can expect to see them on tops, bottoms, hair accessories, jewelry, shoes, handbags, and even… swimwear! There’s no reason why you can’t wear pearls when shopping, socializing, or even running errands. As Jacqueline Kennedy once said, “Pearls are always appropriate.”

There’s just something about pearls that catches the eye. You can trust all eyes will be on you (in the best of ways!), whether you wear pearl-embellished clothing or accessories. Here are five ways you can wear the trend.

1. Jewelry

Jewelry is probably the most common way to wear pearls. When it comes to pearl jewelry, the general rule of thumb is, the dressier the event, the bigger the pearls. So use your smaller pearls to add a little glam to your jeans look, and your larger, statement pearl pieces ones for date night or big events.

I snagged the pearl strap Apple watch band in the photo above a few weeks ago, and I’ve been wearing it non-stop! It was a simple and inexpensive way to incorporate the pearl embellished trend into something I already owned.

I am obsessing over the nature-inspired pearl jewelry from Anthropologie. I’ve never seen pieces like this necklace or these beautiful earrings before. If you want to add just a touch of glamour to an everyday outfit, this string of pearls will be a go-to accessory that won’t let you down. If you’re already longing for summer like I am, check out these exquisite gold shell and pearl drop earrings.

2. Clothing

Pearl embellished clothing is one of the freshest ways to sport the pearl trend. Pearls have been around for a long time, but now they are being reimagined as eye-catching trim, buttons, or accents on collars and sleeves.

A scattered-pearl sweater, a pearl-embellished balloon-sleeve sweater, or a light jacket with a pearl-studded collar would pair beautifully with sleek pants for date night. And these pearl embellished jeans would be the perfect base for a cute, everyday outfit.

3. Bags

Stylish women like you know that a standout accessory easily elevates a simple outfit! This pearl-detail bag is a great example. It’s the kind of piece that adds a touch of luxe to a classic tee and a good pair of jeans. A beautiful pearl clutch or pearl mini bag is just what you need to complete your look for a more formal occasion.

4. Hair

Channel your inner French girl with a beautiful pearl beret or a pearl headband. If you’re looking for the perfect accessory for your updo, this pearl claw and these scrunchies are too cute!

5. Shoes

Shoes are a great way to incorporate the pearl trend into what you already have in your closet! We found some fun and fab pearly shoes! Pearl studded slides or wedges are cute and casual, plus they’re a great way to incorporate pearls into your summer look! A cute pair of pearl-embellished sandals like the ones I bought above can make a casual outfit look more pulled together. There are so many beautiful options for more formal pearl embellished shoes. I love these unique heels with a bow! Don’t want to buy a new pair of shoes? Check out these pearl jewelry clips that can transform a pair of shoes you already own!
