A Closer Look at Fall’s Power Pin Trend


Fall runways have shown the resurgence of one jewelry trend in particular: the pin. Not your average pins, but maximalist, dramatic adornments—like Schiaparelli’s eye brooch, Coperni’s cheeky hand, and Gucci’s conspicuous crystals—that are placed to worn a statement. Placed on the chest or elsewhere, these power pins are a nod to vintage fashion, a response to minimalism, and a way to add versatility to a wardrobe.

One of the most exciting aspects of the pin trend for this fall is the vintage revival. Here’s your excuse to dust off heirloom brooches and lapel pins and give new life to these cherished family relics. Vintage pins, with their intricate designs and sentimental value, are gaining a prominent place in modern wardrobes.

In an era dominated by minimalist aesthetics, the return of the pin is a breath of fresh air. From whimsical and quirky to elegant and classic, pins come in a vast array of designs to suit every taste. These small but impactful accessories allow wearers to express their individuality with flair.

And the reinvigorated styling of pins is another reason for their resurgence. On the runways, they were pinned from neck to chest and even at the hip. Whether you choose to adorn your lapel, collar, hat, or even a handbag, pins add an eye-catching focal point to your ensemble.

Below, we’ve rounded up some of the most interesting power pins, so this season you can say it with your chest (or wherever you choose to put them).
