Pearls: The Timeless Gemstone Turned Trend

Pearls are the classiest gemstone that every preppy girl has endless amounts of in her jewelry collection. A strand of pearls is one of those pieces you just need to have, no matter your age. They go with literally everything, even the most basic outfits, like a tee and jeans. This season, the fashion world is taking pearls and turning them into a trend of sorts, and I’m not complaining!

From pearl embellished jeans to pearl statement earrings, it’s clear that fashion girls will be wearing the classic gem with everything. Today, I’m featuring this pearl embellished button down that I bought at Marshalls for only $5! It was on sale, so do check your local Marshalls to see if you can find it on the clearance rack. I’ve seriously looked online for a half hour trying to find a similar top, and I haven’t found a single one! If it wasn’t for this shirt being only $5, I probably would’ve just DIYed it. So, if you’re interested in this top I’d buy some crafting pearls and thread then sew it on a blouse of your choice.


I’ve kept the entire look simple by pairing it with raw hem dark wash jeans, blush mules, and a moto jacket. Obviously the pearls are the stars of the show, so I didn’t add any necklace. Just a few bracelets on my wrist and a rose gold bag is enough to accessorize without overpowering the pearl collar. I love the mixture of white and grey pearls because it adds dimension. Also, I promise I ironed my shirt! On the way to shoot this look my seatbelt added all the wrinkles!

Besides this pearl embellished top, I’ve been obsessing over a few other trendy pearl clothing and accessories. For starters, I’m in love with these jeans. Pearl embellished jeans are one of the most popular pieces I’ve been seeing on Instagram. I was very surprised to find this pair at Nordstrom for only $50 because of the intricate detail.

I’ve been seeing these Steve Madden pearl embellished mules a lot lately as well. Mules are quickly becoming my favorite style of shoe, so the pearls are an added bonus to this pair!

A pair of pearl earrings is a must, and these Kate Spade statement pearl earrings are the perfect twist to a classic set. With summer being over, I’m moving on from tassel and thread earrings. Instead, opting for a pair of statement pearls is on trend.

They say pearls will never go out of style, and that’s the truth. I love that pearls are popping up everywhere. This trend is super easy to incorporate into your wardrobe, and you really don’t have buy anything. All you have to do is throw on a strand of pearls and you’re out the door!
