Pearls have long been a staple for those with a more classic aesthetic, from the famous strands of pearls on Audrey Hepburn’s neck in Breakfast at Tiffany’s to the stunning jewels Royalty adorned in their hair and crowns. Wearing pearls always signifies a level of sophistication and elegance.
In recent years, pearls are making a fashion comeback into the mainstream and the crowds love it. For the keen observer, the resurgence kicked off in the Spring/Summer 2018 runways last year where designer labels such as Miu Miu and Alexander McQueen introduced these on the necks of runway models; or incorporated into their fashion pieces. Jumping on the bandwagon are fast fashion brands like Zara, followed by Instagram influencers all posting their on-trend pearls additions.
Thanks to Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel, it’s now an important part of fashion trends for 2019. More and more designers are incorporating pearls into their pieces with pearl-encrusted clothing, shoes, handbags and more importantly, jewellery. The 2019 pearl fashion trends to look forward to:
The rock n’ roll string chokers are making a come back this year, but all grown up. Many designs at the New York Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2019 have added some milky white pearls to their black, leathery traditional chockers.
Giant gold hoops, a trend made popular by rap videos from the early 2000s are getting a classic makeover. Gold hoops with a glistening sphere of different colours make it a perfect addition to both formal and casual outfits.
The classic pearl necklace
The classic pearl necklace is making a call-back into the fashion-house Chanel. Pearls have long played a significant part in Coco’s original designs, stitching pearls into headbands and collars.
