Stemming from our collective love of period dramas like “Bridgerton” and “The Gilded Age,” many fashion staples from yesteryear are experiencing a resurgence. In particular, pearl-embellished accessories — otherwise known as pearlcore — are staging a comeback. Extremely popular during the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, pearls are getting a 2020s update, adorning everything from hair clips to bridal gowns, pearls are the jewels of the season. So naturally, pearl shoes are increasing in demand.
With both summer and wedding season upon us, pearl sandals are destined to be a popular choice for all occasions. Whether you’re a bride-to-be searching for the perfect pair of pearl heels or a guest-to-be wanting to amp up your wedding attire, this season you’ll find an array of pearl footwear to complement your ensemble. Even if you don’t have many big events on your calendar just yet, these options are ideal for your next date night or even just for adding a touch of glam to your everyday outfit.
Pearl flats are for those who like to marry style and practicality. The Stuart Weitzman pearl slides strike the perfect balance between glamour and ease. On the more casual end of the spectrum, pearl-encrusted Converses have become a popular choice for sneaker enthusiasts everywhere. And of course, pearl heels will deliver beauty and drama with each shiny (and sparkly) step, like the the Mach & Mach Diamond of Elizabeth mules. Pair pearl heels with pieces that will set the stage to really let your footwear shine, like mini dresses and midi skirts. Complete your look with a baguette shoulder bag or a mini pouch.
