Pins With Personality


Have you guys noticed that enamel pins have become a thing? recently I’ve seen so many rad ones popping up all around the place, and people rocking them on Social media. These old school enamel pins have been growing in popularity since 2015. 

After finding a new audience on Instagram and social media, new companies online and on Etsy have popped up around the trend. Pop culture designs sell especially well.  Plus, they're a cute way to show off your individual style, and work for both men's and women's fashions.  These tiny markers let your fan flag fly, reflecting your personal style, niche interests and sense of humour.

Of course, a large part of their appeal is how accessible (and cost-effective) they are. How many wardrobe updates start at just R20? They're miniature works of art.  Not everyone can collect original paintings, but you can certainly own three – or 30 – quirky enamel pins.

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.

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.

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.

Fair warning, though: Their collectible nature can lead to addiction. Once you get started, you won't be able to stop.
