Pin Game Strong

August 4th, 2017 at 2:00am

Lapel pins have made a huge comeback in the past few years. Buttons and pins have always been a thing among the punk crowd, but now even major fashion brands are hopping on the trend. Now, you can find a pin for almost everything from cartoons, musicians, cute animals, or your favorite witty slogan.

Pins can be styled in a variety of ways, but one thing is for certain—denim is a perfect backdrop, whether it’s a cap, vest, jacket, or jeans.

For the denim cap, I chose two larger pins. The crown states “queen of procrastination,” which describes me perfectly. There is also a hand “hang ten” pin, which is not only fun but represents an activity I like to do in my free time.

For the vest, I went all out. In addition to pins, I also decorated it with patches. For the front of the vest, several of the pins and patches represent places I’ve been or were purchased on a trip I’ve been on. They also show off some things I’m into like Sailor Moon, makeup, my favorite band, and activism with a Rosa Parks mugshot pin.

For the jacket, not only did I use pins, but I also decorated with mermaid shell studs and long spikes. Jackets have so much room to decorate, I can’t wait to get more pins and patches to fill it up. I hope this gave you some inspiration to spice up your life with the help of pins.
