Sweater pins

Sweater pins

Fashion Synopsis

In the 50’s, every good girl’s dream was to be ‘pinned’ by her beau. Pinning was a big step in the days of dating, and when your boyfriend pinned you with his fraternity insignia, you were going steady. That meant you were somebody, and the best way to show off your exclusive commitment with a boy was to wear the pin on your sweater.

But going steady wasn’t the only way to adorn your sweater with colorful, pretty pins. Avon and Trifari made expensive-looking costume jewelry that was affordable on any budget. Sweater pins or broaches were a smart accessory for any sweater. Worn on the upper part of the sweater as a bit of shiny decoration, the pin brightened your day, sweetheart or not.
