Now that it’s the new year, it’s time to look ahead and consider some of the trends we’ll likely see throughout the year. Two styles that will likely continue from 2014 are embellishments and polka dots. And a perfect way to combine the two is with pearls. They’re timeless and feminine, and they make for an interesting detail when added to certain classic wardrobe staples. Although pearl embellishment isn’t a new concept, it has a 3D effect that feels modern and fresh heading into the new year. And it’s pretty much like having jewellery built into your clothes.
Recently I’ve noticed a few well-dressed celebs enjoying the pearl embellished trend. This past weekend Reese Witherspoon attended the Palm Springs Film Festival (see more photos here) in a chic pearl-embellished short black Michael Kors dress with cap sleeves (from his pre-fall 2015 collection). And fashion-forward Gwen Stefani was spotted the same weekend (more photos here) looking hip as usual in a semi-sheer pearl embellished black top paired with patterned pants, spiked Louboutin boots and an awesome Chanel bag (a killer outfit).
If you’re not down with wearing a whole dress or top covered in pearls, try pearl embellished accessories – heals, bags, even sneakers. Because…why not? Pearl embellishment is fun – and fancy. I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more of it.
