Do you ever wear pins or brooches? I don't think they're too much in vogue these days, but I've always liked keeping a pretty pin on the collar of my dressy winter coats. My mom always had one on her nice coats and it really is a fun way to add some extra style to your look. It feels feminine and elegant and vintage, to me.
Well, it's not quite time for winter coats yet, but I was looking through some of my pins and thought they would look darling on a big comfy fall sweater. So I pulled out three pins and grabbed a basic grey cardigan (this look works best on a loose, open cardigan that isn't too thick or heavy).
The top and bottom pins are both antiques and were very special gifts from family and friends. The middle one is actually a stud earring--a recent Anthropologie find--but it worked much the same way as the pins. Here are the looks I came up with!
By pinning my jewels in different spots, I was able to achieve three totally unique looks. I love it! My beautiful pins really transformed this basic grey knit sweater into something a bit more special, don't you think?
Would you try this? If you don't own any pins, check your local thrift shops!
