Here's Why We Can't Get Enough Of The Pin Trend | Clozette

While trends come and go, there's a certain sense of permanence to some of their elements. For example: red pants can be a major thing one season, and then turn to a total drab the next — but its core remains as it is, threads and all.  


As much as we want to keep up with trends, we have to admit that turning your wardrobe over is not exactly the easiest thing, both on the budget and the exerted effort. But when pins and patches started to steal the spotlight, whether it be on the streets or the runways, it gave that sense of freedom over fashion with the bonus that it doesn't burn a hole in the pockets. 


Ahead, we share some of the reasons why we're totally gushing over this trend. 


Customise, customise, customise

We all have to admit that once in our lives, we got addicted to RPG or role-playing games that allowed us to design a character. It was fun although it took forever for us to finish one character because honestly, who doesn't love customising? The thing about pins is that they give us that fun experience of tweaking the same fashion piece and transforming its vibe into something completely different with just a simple accessory.

Compared to other trends and accessories, pins are available almost anywhere, and at the most pocket-friendly prices. Usually, they also come in sets, which make them even cheaper; but with the millions of possibilities you can use them for, they definitely give a bang for your buck.


It's versatile in all forms

Whether you're thinking about your mood, the season or a fashion piece, pins help shake things up a bit. You are in full control of curating which pin goes where, and it's no hassle to change or take off if you don't feel like going for a certain look anymore.  Whatever the reason is, pins let you play with your outfit in more ways than one — you'll find it hard to run out of ideas.

You got invited to a wedding. Now it’s time to carefully choose your outfit for this special occasion. Here’s a guide on what to wear for different kinds of weddings this summer.

For a Church Wedding

For weddings that will be celebrated in a formal location like a church, you have to take note of any dress code before you decide on your outfit. The safest route is to go for a classic dress such as a chic A-line dress. Opt for colours that will match the theme of the wedding. Remember: when it comes to formal weddings, it’s better to be safe than sorry. 


For a Garden Wedding



The beautiful scenery of a garden is one of the reasons why garden weddings are getting more and more popular amongst couples. Since garden weddings are much more casual, you can have fun with different dress styles. But keep in mind that some brides are very particular in how they prefer their guests to dress. So you have to re-check the invitation for specific dress codes. Dresses in bright and delicate colours will look magnificent in photos as they complement the ethereal feel of the venue. Since you have more freedom in choosing your outfit, it’s best to dress according to what flatters your body shape the most.


For a Beach Wedding

Isn’t it exciting to witness a couple say their vows with a beautiful sunset in the background? Beach weddings usually call for a relaxed, laid-back style. For this, maxi dresses with floral prints or solid muted colours are perfect. Match your dress with sandals with chunky heels or a pair of flat sandals with pretty ankle straps. It also doesn’t hurt to accessorise for the occasion; don flower crowns and dangling earrings for that beach babe vibe.
