A Pearl Barrette Is The Most Elegant Pre-Fall Accessory — & We Have The Best Finds

There's a good chance that your relationship with pearls is best described as nostalgic. Maybe it started with a string of them draped across your grandma's blouse, or perhaps it was your first pair of earrings after graduating beyond stick-ons. Now, the glossy white beads are taking on a fresh form — and designed to be sprinkled throughout your hair.

It's hard to miss the budding hair trend, what with every store — from vintage accessory boutiques to fast-fashion hubs — lining their storefront displays and webpages with chic iterations on pearls. It doesn't matter if you're styling a bob or long, bouncy curls, a bobby pin accented with a pearl makes any hairstyle feel elegant, making it a must-have for your lineup of Zoom calls, or this weekend's socially-distant picnic in the park. Ahead, find all the prettiest pearl-lined hair pins to grab before everyone else is wearing them.
