Brooches Are Making a Grand Comeback!

Brooches Are Making a Grand Comeback!

And the message is clear: these aren't your grandmother's pins.

Brooches are enjoying a revival. And, most importantly, they are shedding their reputations as being reserved for women of a certain age.

Here are a few ways you can style this accessory in more than one funky way!

  • Attach to a sweater. Place a brooch beneath the collarbone of a sweater to add a touch of elegance to your outfit. When pinning your brooch on your sweater, avoid gathering too much fabric—this can cause the knitted material to bunch up and look knotted.

  • Clip to a dress. Embellish a simple dress by adding a brooch to the upper left side of your garment. Brooches work best with a solid-colored dress, as fabrics with intricate patterns can hide the brooch. Consider pairing a floral brooch with a little black dress to accessorize your outfit.
  • Pin matching brooches on a shirt collar. Pin matching brooches to the collar to dress up a classic button-down shirt. This is a simple way to highlight your neckline and embellish your blouse; pair sterling silver pins with brooches featuring sparkly rhinestones on a classic button-down.
  • Secure a head scarf. Use a brooch as a button to hold your scarf in place. Wrap the scarf around your head securely and create a bold fashion statement.

  • Style on a jacket. Wear a brooch on the lapel of a jacket to draw attention to your coat. You can add a brooch to a wool coat, blazer, denim jacket, or cardigan. If your jacket has a breast pocket, pin the brooch on the pocket.

  • Turn a brooch into a choker necklace. Close the pin, slip the scarf or chain through the back of the brooch, tie the necklace around your neck with the pin in the center.
  • Wear it as a hair accessory. For formal occasions, consider wearing a brooch as a hairpin. Secure a brooch in an up-do, or use it as a hair clip for a half-up, half-down look.
