Alongside the classic staples of boho-inspired fashion and sultry performance looks, a new, precious accessory found its way to the forefront of festival fashion at Coachella this past weekend – pearl everything, with stars like Halsey, Chloe Bailey and Sara Sampaio getting in on the trend.
"We already knew pearls were gonna trend for 2022, and they were everywhere at Coachella," beauty writer Cat Quinn explained in a recent TikTok, noting that the trend was visible "in the hair, on the eyes, scattered across lids, as full outfits and even tiny tiny little accents," throughout the festival.
From makeup accents to full pearl moments, here are three ways to hop on this trend.
- '90s Pearl Jam Hair
- Subtle Pearl Details
- Classic Layered Strands
'90s Pearl Jam Hair
In yet another instance of Y2K trends finding their footing in the 2020s, it seems hair gems are officially back in style –– but with a twist.
Give this fun aughts look an update by taking after model Sampaio and swapping the tinted rhinestones for elegant pearl accessories, placing e.l.f.'s pearl Face and Body Gems throughout the hair, near the inner corner of the eye or on the high points of the cheek. For a more wearable take on this beauty trend, add a pearl-encrusted accessory like Madewell's Freshwater Pearl Barrette to your hair.
Subtle Pearl Details
And it's not just accessories. Pearls also appeared as a classy, nautical addition to several festival looks, including Bailey's mermaid-esque cover-up. Channel your inner siren by sporting Tularosa's Siren Midi Slip Dress atop a bright swimsuit.
Classic Layered Strands
Despite these fashion-forward takes on the trend, classic accessories never go out of style, a sentiment Halsey embodied after layering a strappy black crop with a strand of timeless pearls. Try pairing Mejuri's Bold Pearl Necklace with a dark, neutral top for a refined yet modern festival look.
