Pinned

A type of jewelry that doesn’t often get talked about is the hairpin. Its quiet status doesn’t detract from its value, though: a hairpin can complete an outfit. A row of white fabric flowers, for example, can turn you into a blushing bride while bow­tie shaped barrettes exude a vintage feel.

The Mel Bernie Company (also known as the 1928 Jewelry Company) has quite a selection in this range: silver­ and copper­tone butterfly barrettes or ornate clips with black oval gemstones tucked in a row of three.  There are more classic styles, like hair combs, one of which, ­­ also from The Mel Bernie Company, ­­ is studded with different shapes of real Swarovski crystals.

You can also opt for the bohemian look with any one of countless brightly colored feather hairpin styles. Those include peacock feathers that hug the scalp while showing off an array of purples, blues, and pinks as well as clip-­in feathers that dangle within your locks of hair.  Their best attribute is their versatility; they look great not only in your hair but anywhere! Try them clipped to your shirt or pinned to a chain and worn as a necklace. With these lovely pins, anything goes.
