Old-school pins add modern touch

Pins and brooches will give new life to your wardrobe. When a lot of girls think about pins, they think about chunky hunks of metal that their grandmothers used to keep a scarf closed. However, pins and clips are experiencing a revival. A sparkling silver brooch or cameo might be just the accent that you need to take your look from cool to cutting edge.

First of all, we recommend that you ransack the jewelry boxes of all of your older relatives to see if they have any gorgeous items that are just collecting dust. If they’ll let you at them, grab any colorful or shiny pieces that catch your eye. This will give you a solid pin collection.

Next, go shopping and keep your eyes peeled for a pin in your signature color or with a unique design or stone. We love opals because they’re the chameleons of the jewelry world. The iridescent stone will reflect whatever colors you’re wearing and catch the light with a subtle shimmer.

Okay, now that you have some killer pins, you might be wondering: How do you wear them? However you want! Pin a fancy bauble onto the lapel of your favorite denim jacket for an unexpected twist on casual wear, or slip a small, sparkling pin onto your headband or scarf before heading out for the night.
