Picking up the phone and calling your grandma is never a bad idea, but pearl-mania means you might want to inquire about potentially raiding her jewelry box the next time you pay her a visit. From hair clips to chokers, fashion girls can't get enough of the vintage gemstone, and Gigi Hadid's sunglasses chain is the latest iteration on the classic trend. The 24-year-old was on-the-go in New York City on Tues., looking comfy in gray sweats, a crop top, and a distressed denim jacket. With her hair pulled into a high pony with a simple black scrunchie, Hadid's eyewear accessory added a noteworthy pop to the otherwise simple look.

Hadid debuted the retro shades by UK-based brand DMY BY DMY at Coachella last month, and this isn't the first time she's worn the pearl-adorned accent, either. A clear lover of statement accessories, the model has been big on shell jewelry this spring, pairing the oceanic trend with tie-dye outfits, serving an elevated beachside aesthetic that hints at surfer vibes of the late '90s and early 2000s. At her 24th birthday, Hadid kept her outfit simple while amping up the jewelry in a major way, stacking several eye-catching pieces by Éliou, the American brand behind the sunglasses chain.


When it comes to lazy-day street style, the no-fail addition to your heather gray sweatpants and oversized t-shirt is a good pair of statement sunglasses, in order to signal to the world that you are in fact a functional human who may or may not have actual adulting to do. And whether you're en route to veg out on your best friend's couch and watch Game of Thrones, or are hesitantly tackling dreaded Sunday errands, sunglasses are a must, and a chain like Hadid's garners extra style bonus points.

The Zoe Report rounded up a few chic picks below, featuring pearls like Hadid's along with other fun accents. So just add to cart, clip 'em on, and go.
