What is Pearlcore?


When I first heard the term "Pearlcore", I admit I was utterly clueless about what that meant. But when I figured it out I knew I was All-In on this trend! 

Pearlcore essentially means that pearls aren't just "in fashion" as an accessory for 2022, they are a lifestyle aesthetic. That means wearing not just pearl jewelry but pearl hair accessories, pearl embellished clothing, shoes and bags and even gorgeously iridescent accents in your home (I now want a set of iridescent coffee mugs, haha) and more. 

The idea behind a "core" trend is that it isn't just an accessory, it is about capturing the essence of the aesthetic and applying it to multiple aspects of your lifestyle: wardrobe, jewelry, cosmetics and within your home, too.

Other "core" trends include: "Fairycore" (which is as pretty as it sounds!), "Softcore" for all things warm and cozy, and even "Royalcore" which, if you're a fan of Bridgerton, could be as endlessly gorgeous as the show ... well maybe not THAT impressive, but a girl can dream. What I'm really enjoying about the core trends is you don't need to break the bank to have some fun with your chosen aesthetic; you can include as many - or as few - aspects of any of these trends to enjoy a new vibe. 

We all know that pearls are a classic, timeless gemstone, but 2022's pearlcore fashion can lean any which way: preppy, romantic, edgy, artsy, punk - this is all about making the iconic beauty of the pearl all your own!
