Remember when Carrie wore silk flower pins on Sex and the City and you had to have one – or several? Well hopefully you kept them, because according to Gucci (who we look to lately for fashion inspiration as they are back on track since Alessandro Michele took over of the helm this past year), silk floral pins are the must have trend of the season. Florals are everywhere this season and even on Gucci handbags (you kinda want one too, right?). So leave it to the trendsetting brand to bring the floral brooch back.
It wasn’t old-ladyish when Carrie wore it in the 90’s and it doesn’t have to be now either. Be sure to wear your silk floral pin with modern pieces, like a button down, your t-shirt or the lapel of your jacket to add some color and texture to a plain or minimalist outfit. Just don’t add one to a floral outfit or wear one in your hair unless you are a bridesmaid.
You can spend $300+ on the Guccci version (seen below) or you can find some on Etsy and from other brands that cost much less. (Digging up a vintage Chanel one isn’t a bad idea either). Or you can even make your own silk floral pin with a quick trip to Michaels and just a few bucks. In fact, I made a ton of pins for myself and others back in the 90’s and am hoping I can dig one up. Or did I stupidly get rid of them all? They will be in for fall too, so make sure to grab or make a few ASAP.
