You may remember enamel pins from your childhood – from a smiley face to a superhero, rocking this accessory was something to be proud of. This fall, the trend is back with a sophisticated twist. First seen on runways, we are so ready to bring this look back to life. For a light-hearted spin on your grown-up style, here are 5 simple tips for wearing pins this season:
1. Experiment with placement
Whether you’re wearing a blazer, denim jacket or baseball cap, have some fun with placing your pins. Either group them all together on a jacket collar, or spread them out on each side of your ensemble. The best thing about this trend is that there’s no wrong way to rock it!
Mixing prints and patterns has been a trend all year, and the same rules (or lack thereof) apply to this accessory. Add variety to your look by choosing an array of adornments – no combo of pins is off-limits this fall.
3. Pay attention to color
It’s important to consider how your pins complement your look. When you’re wearing solids, choose colorful pins that can provide contrast. When you’re rocking prints, choose neutral metallics to avoid busyness.
4. The more, the merrier
If there’s one thing we know to be true about pins, it’s that you can never choose just one to wear. Luckily for us, these tiny accessories are super affordable – only about $5 to $10 for each!
5. Represent your personal style
Whether you’re passionate about art, pop culture, sports or music, make sure your pins reflect your personality. It may be a small accessory – but it can make a big statement.
This season, it’s all about being bold – and what better way to show your style than by wearing your heart (and emojis, and food, and animals…) on your sleeve?
