4 Tips for Wearing a Brooch

There’s a common misconception about our favorite fashion accessory – the brooch.  No it is not an accessory only worn by your grandmother, the Queen, or Park Avenue Socialites.

We’re here to dispel that notion, wearing a brooch is a timeless way to add some sparkle to your ensemble, no matter the season.

Pin one on, in a glamorous style like Elizabeth Taylor, use it in an utilitarian and keep your shawl shut, or turn it into an embellishment for your dress, clutch or blouse.

4 Tips for Wearing a Brooch

1. Mix old with new. Wear a vintage brooch with a structured, or retro graphic print dress for a look that’s polished with added modern flair.

2. Placement is key. A brooch always works when worn, left or right, over the bust, or in the center of your collarbones.

3. Blouses and brooches are friends. A fresh way to put some punch into your “go-to” work blouse is to add a playful brooch to the center of the blouse.

4. Dress up your shawl. If you’ve got a plain shawl and want to add a little embellishment, a simple brooch on the lapel is a great statement piece.
