Style Trends :: Pearls are in for Summer

21 Jul

Many who follow the fashion world are wondering if pearls are on the menu for the 2010 summer season. ‘Oriental Pearls’ says that trends generally flow off of what the celebrities are wearing, on screen and off, and the answer seems to be a resounding Yes! 

On screen, Sarah Jessica Parker burns on the Sahara with her girlfriends, but several scenes show her still wearing her long trademark strand. Samantha, Miranda, Charlotte and Carrie have all sported pearls at various landmark scenes throughout ‘Sex and the City’’s famous run. 

Are Pearls In for Summer, 2010? Designers are playing off the celebrity interests as stars come back to Pearls. On the late show circuit, Katherine Heigl appeared on Letterman wearing a bright yellow summer dress with a stunning wide band black belt and matching bracelets – and a midlength strand of large white pearls that had viewers gazing in envy. The former ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ star will be appearing next with ‘Mister Demi Moore’ – Ashton Kutcher and Katherine costar in ‘Killers’, and trailers show at least one stunning extra long necklace being sported by Heigl. 

We’re seeing stars come back to pearls as a mainstay,” comments Lan Toma, representative of ‘OrientalPearls’. “They are very prominent this year, as usual we expect designers will be playing off of the celebrity interests and creating clothing that pearl necklaces will combine well with. We’re also seeing lots of big mabe pearls earrings – the bigger the better – and we believe this is a trend setting move as well.” 

Pearls aren’t just showing up in jewelry – Lady Gaga performed at a recent gala with dozens of pearls glued to her face, body and legs in an attention getting display typical of the singer. 

“People are starting to realize that pearls are more than just something to be worn as a necklace or earrings’” commented Lan Toma. “Not everyone will glue pearls to their body, but I think that act made people stand up and take notice, saying ‘wow, there is so much versatility here’. It’s the same thing we saw when Michelle Obama became First Lady – the pearls mixed with the beaded pins and the diamonds – she showed us that you can have pearls and have fun, too.” 

Pearls, pearls and beads, pearls and precious stones, and pearls with gold or silver are only a few of the combinations that can work for summer fashion. The key, is letting your personality shine through. Pearls don’t mean prim and proper anymore. These beautiful women showed us that you can enjoy the femininity of pearls in a modern, creative and fun way.
