20 Stylish Ways to Wear Pins This Holiday Season

I wanted to share 20 stylish ways to wear a pin this holiday season to make you sparkle and glow. Of course, holiday jewelry is fun, so why not add a few vintage pins to shake things up, and create a look all your own? Nobody loves vintage more than Si types; who are fond of old-school fashion finds? I have to share I love vintage with a boho vibe! 

My fondness of pins was inspired by my mom, who loved brooches, her word for pins. She always had one on her hat, a scarf, and perfectly placed on her left lapel. Being a creative eccentric, I’ve taken wearing brooches to a whole new level.

If you don’t have time to read the entire blog and you’re more of a visual type, join me on Pinterest.  I’ve uploaded quite a few pins on the topic.


Personality Trait Alert

What influences your style are your traits. My Contrary trait (an inferior trait in career typology), introverted sensing (Si), is all about the love of the old, history, traditions… It opposes my Essential Self (a dominant trait in career typology), extroverted intuition (Ne), which is unconventional and loves new ways to do old things and change. 

All of your traits greatly impact you, and they are the gateway to finding yourself. – Z
