Denim jackets are a Fall transition staple. Everyone and their mother owns a denim jacket, and rightfully so. But sometimes, just a simple denim jacket, or denim in general, really, can be a bit blah and just doesn’t do your outfit justice. That’s where lapel pins come in.

Forget Hot Topic and Spencer’s, and get in with the designer, handmade enamel pins that are so much better than the ones you stuck on your messenger bag back in middle school. As you can tell, I’ve gone a bit overboard with the list, but I feel like this just has something for everyone, from ’90s-inspired to food to Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Here are 40+ pins that you need to be putting on your denim jacket ASAP.
