I’m totally guilty of it. In the middle of summer I tend to get a little bit lazy. I don’t know if it’s the weather or what, but something about the temperature and the late sunsets always tends to slow me down. It also means I dress down. Tshirts, tank tops, basically anything lightweight and comfortable. But that’s also what just about everybody wears this time of year. So I started to wonder how I could stand out in a crowd without having to put too much more effort into things. Could I really have my cake and eat it too? The answer is surprisingly: yes!
Fashion lapel pins are a great way to spice up a basic t-shirt, tank top, or even a drab sundress. With bright enamel or glittering rhinestones, they draw attention to you in all the right ways, and they require no effort at all when getting ready in the morning! Throw on one on your way to work, or on the weekends when you’re spending time with friends and family and see the difference it makes.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that you can get away with a t shirt and jeans to a movie premier just because you’re rocking gorgeous, gaudy fashion lapel pins, but when it comes to soccer mom duty, family BBQ’s, or drinks with the girls, these will put you one step above casual. And with so many pieces to choose from, you can express your own unique style.
So this summer I’m not giving up my tees or cut off jean shorts, but I think I’ll start choosing my accessories more carefully, with fashion lapel pins. Simple, stylish, in no time at all! Perfect for these lazy days of summer.
