Ever since Coco Chanel first donned her feminine and elegant pearl necklace, the iridescent gems have been considered a classic staple in every girl’s wardrobe. But in 2018, they’re getting a major overhaul. They’re bigger, edgier and a lot sexier–these are not your grandmother’s pearls. We’re seeing pearls on sweaters, pants, and dresses, and seriously loving it!

Case in point, this year at the MET Gala Rihanna and Cardi B both slayed in elaborate, breathtaking outfits covered in pearls from head to toe. Designer fashion houses Margiela and Moschino really outdid themselves with these extravagant gowns. We adored the looks and honestly feel they were the best at the gala, but we’re not suggesting you go to that extreme. Let’s be honest, only Bad Gal RiRi can pull off the pope look. Instead, we recommend trying the pearl trend more subtly, and at Citylux we’ve got plenty of options that won’t break the bank.


One of our favorites right now is the Vanya body suit. It’s sexy, buttery soft, and hugs your curve in the most flattering way possible. We love the way the soft velvet pairs with the regal pearls–it looks and feels so elegant. And if you want to go a little bit sexier, pair it with a tight pencil skirt or leather pants. We guarantee  you’ll feel like a total babe.

We’re also OBSESSING over our ultra-feminine Charlie dress. The material is cozy, the cut is perfect for accentuating your waist, and the pearls add a next-level touch of sophistication. The knit material is also lightweight making it ideal for chilly summer evenings. We also suggest wearing one side slightly off your shoulder for an irresistibly sexy look. We can’t wait to wear this all summer long!

For those who don’t want to commit to a full sweater dress, check out our Finley top. Equally as gorg and feminine but you can wear it with jeans and pumps. Plus we love how the wrap bottom really accentuates your waist as well.

As for bottoms, we’ve got you covered there too. For an edgier look, our Faith jeans are perfect. We love them paired with a girly ruffled blouse like our glam Manvir top. You can also dress them down with a simple tank or fitted white tee.

If bold isn’t really your thing, our white Purity jeans are darling and incorporate a bit of the pearl trend without going over-the-top. For an even sexier and more feminine look, pair the pearl jeans with our gorgeous lace Britt bodysuit.

The pearl trend is one of the hottest fashion trends for 2018, and it isn’t going anywhere soon (and that’s fine with us). We are loving mixing the traditionally innocent and elegant pearl look with a tight jean or plunging neckline. If you want to try the pearl trend too, come by our downtown Vancouver shop and we can help you find the perfect look. Or go shopping on our website right now!
