Embracing the Pearl Trend - How to Style Pearls for Any and Every Occasion

By Emily Huxtable - 4th June 2024

Dusting off Grandma’s wardrobe has never been easier with the resurgence of pearl jewellery. One of the oldest jewels used to adorn our garments, these stunning gems are unrivalled in their natural form. Little labour is needed to bring out the lustrous finish of a pearl, making them more accessible than their semi-precious counterparts. 

Pearls have come in and out of fashion throughout their long history. Previously reserved for the bourgeoisie due to their high price point, these beautiful natural jewels have gone from high society to high fashion, from the runway to the high street. The introduction of cultured and imitation pearls has meant that what once was rarer than diamonds is now readily available. With the use of these different types of pearls, there are so many ways to add a pearlescent touch to any look. 

In recent times, pearls have, once again, come to the forefront of modern styling. A big trend now and set to continue throughout the year, contemporary fashion lets us embrace pearls in every shape and size. So, no matter your style, the shimmering pearl can add timeless allure to any outfit. Transform your pearls from day to night, summer to winter with our styling guide.
