Hatpins add detail to hats, making them more seasonally appropriate or coordinating them with a specific outfit. Learn how to use a hatpin with the help of a fashion expert in this free video.
Hi, my name is Katie Kern with CircaPR, a fashion PR firm in Charleston, South Carolina, and I'm going to show you how to use a hat pin. A hat pin is an easy way of adding a little detail to your hat, and here's an easy way to do it. Basically, you're going to take the hat, a very plain hat and add a little bit of nice detailing, a nice pin. You're going to take the pin, make sure the fabric is something that's easy to pin and make sure you poke all the way through so that you don't leave anything open so that you don't poke yourself when you put it on your head. Clip the hat pin together, make sure that it's secure and then you're going to place it on your head. Make sure that you're lining it up, everything is straight, and then you just have basically a new hat. Again, my name is Katie Kern with CircaPR, and this is how you use a hat pin.
