Pins Are Super Cool - 5 Tips for wearing Lapel Pins

You may remember enamel pins from your childhood – from a smiley face to a superhero, to a badass Iron Maiden design; rocking this accessory was something to be proud of.

This trend is back with a sophisticated twist. First seen on runways, next on the Grammys, the trend is coming 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 pins is that there’s no wrong way to rock them!

2. Mix-and-match

Mixing prints and patterns has been a trend of late and the same applies to this classic accessory. Add variety to your look by choosing an array of adornments – no combo of pins is off-limits.

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.
