Pearls galore! We teach you 11 things to shop for your inner nacre-philia

The alluring pearl is a favourite embellishment with the likes of Vermeer (Girl with a Pearl Earring), and recently made a comeback on the Spring/Summer 2017 runway across shows such as Coco Chanel, Gucci, Celine and Vivetta. Here are 11 pearl-embellished pieces to elevate your look

From sophisticated stud earrings to over-the-top necklaces, pearls are the must-have this Spring/Summer. Here’s how to incorporate them into your wardrobe:

Faux pearl-embellished cotton-blend lace dress, $708, from Philosophy Di Lorenzo Serafini via Net-a-Porter

Ooh, who needs a belt when we can have a velvet trimming dotted with sweet pearls? This number hits all the right notes, down to the graphic cotton-blend lace, and is perfect for any occasion.

Pearl earrings, $19.90, from Mango

We’re all about geometric earcandy, what’s more, a pair that houses pearls in it. Pull your hair back to give these earrings the attention they deserve, and you’ll feel like a million bucks.   

K fashion pearl embellished denim jacket, $149.90, from Stylenanda via Zalora

Show off your edgy side with this fun translation of the classic denim jacket. The party’s at the back, with embroidered flowers and pearls, of course. Be sure to keep it simple inside by opting for a plain tank top.

Clio faux pearl-embellished leather sandals, $201, from Ancient Greek Sandals via Net-a-Porter

Hey, your feet deserve some love too. This chic pair goes with pretty much everything, from a mini dress to a white-shirt-and-denim-shorts combo.

Aurora embellished cutout wool-blend sweater, $639, from Mother of Pearl via Net-a-Porter

This cosy wool-blend sweater could very well be your go-to piece if you want to create visual interest and show just a teeny bit of skin. Just look at the small cutouts on the shoulders and sleeves that are held in place with faux pearl-embellished pins! Don’t neglect the deep side split; flaunt it by layering over black pants.

14-karat gold, pearl, diamond and velvet choker, $2,620, from Anissa Kermiche via Net-a-Porter

Chokers are still all the rage now, and what better way to stand out from the crowd than with a unique piece that comes with three lovely pearls of different sizes? Stay on trend with a touch of luxe, checked.

Play rivet & pearls decoration brushed sweatshirt, $64.90, from Jucy Judy via Zalora

Sometimes, your plain go-to pullover just doesn’t cut it anymore – a sprinkle of pearl embellishments will do just the trick. They’re not splattered all over your top, so you can easily channel glam-meets-minimalist.  

Pearl detail white soled trainers, $73.90, from Missguided via Zalora

You can certainly count on this pair of trainers to nail the sports luxe look. Your comfy kicks will never be the same again with a bold touch of pearls, and we’re always up for a whimsical twist to our everyday items, no? We say go with a graphic tee and a leather skirt for an OOTD that screams spontaneous.  

Pearl buttons tweed jacket, $131, from Hello Sweety via Zalora

Pearl buttons on our favourite tweed jacket are just icing on the cake. Now there’s even more reason to throw on a tweed jacket to look super put together, rather than opting for the safe blazer. Team it with some flare pants to feel like a total #girlboss.

Pearl of wisdom jumpsuit, $432.86, from Asilio via Asos

We know, you may be squinting to find the pearls, but these two pearls alone are the perfect final flourish to the smart jumpsuit. They’re ultra low key yet instantly elevate the one-piece for an incredibly sleek look. There’s no need to accessorise, really. To switch things up, we’d choose a pair of sexy red heels.

Orla studded crossbody bag, $56.90, from Topshop

The answer to a pearl-studded crossbody bag is always a yes. This one has a bit of retro feel and makes for a statement accessory that will never be out of style.
