You can never get away from safety pins, big or small. Who can't remember a broken bra strap, a falling hem, and worse, a broken zipper. In some cases, you carefully hid the pin or pins so that only a smidgen would show, if you really looked.
That all changed when Elizabeth Hurley showed up in a Gianni Versace dress, held together with big, showy safety pins. Then they were part punk, a bit dangerous and very sexy, not at all utilitarian.
Safety pin embellishment takes an outfit from safe to edgy, whether it's on the collar, holding a sweater together or in a full-blown design.
