NYLON Manila Fit Picks: Pearls

A classic piece that never goes out of style.

Nothing beats lola’s classic pearls.

Fashion’s cyclical nature can be chaotic at times, but when you see a resurgence of old trends like pearls, that’s when it gets us all giddy and excited. We’re amazed by how they go from boho, street, and red carpet nowadays, especially knowing there was always a preconceived notion that they were deemed “old” and only reserved for the elites. But this generation proves that pearls truly are a versatile piece on your wardrobe. In case you’re still not convinced, see how Billie Eilish to Ken Suson styled the classic staple.

Lisa Manoban’s stage outfits will always remain dominant. Here, she wears a pearl choker to complete her gold and black dress and some sparkly Doc Martens.

JOAO CONSTANCIA

Actor and performer Joao Constancia often wears a pearl necklace every chance he can get and we can’t blame him. Pearls are versatile enough to go from casual to formal.

BILLIE EILISH

Billie Eilish has the constant habit of making our jaws drop every time she posts something on Instagram. Like a true style inspo, she wears her pearls with a corset and peek-a-boo lingerie.

SARAH POLICIOS

Young entrepreneur Sarah Policios, founder of local brand, Luisa Jewelry, wears her pearls on the beach in a bikini and oversized blazer. The straw hat tied it all.

KEN SUSON

Take it from SB19’s Ken Suson and style your pearls with a 70s ensemble like a Gucci runway model. Bonus points for the ruffled sleeves!

KATARINA RODRIGUEZ

Island gal Katarina Rodriguez has that beach glow in a tie dye shirt and a pearl necklace from sustainable brand Angkan that helps indigenous communities.
