Looking for a way to amp up your winter style? Put a pin on it. A brooch, that is. Your Grandma’s favorite accessory is getting upgraded and trendsetters are breaking out their brooches. The look is a little bit classic, and a little bit sassy, with some of the cheekier modern day pins and brooches out there. Whether you go vintage or modern, adding a shiny brooch to a scarf or coat lapel gives your cold-weather look new life.
And don’t just stop at the traditional brooch placeholders; try a brooch at the end of your coat sleeve, on a hat, on the bib of your denim overalls, pinned to a hair tie and worn in your hair, on a pair of shoes, the list goes on and on. The snazzy vintage and modern brooch options are also endless. Think funky and original to really add a bit of eye-catching fashion drama; a vintage rhinestone brooch, an edgier spin on the classic brooch with a chain, or a whimsical pink unicorn, a sleek pearl bar brooch, a vintage Chanel brooch, a pair of dragonflies, even a pizza patch pin.
I also love fashion that has to be “found.” There are so many gorgeous modern options at places like Shopbop and Nordstrom, but you can also hunt down stunning vintage pieces online at vintage retailers like Sweet & Spark or in your local flea markets and thrift shops.
Get inspired and then get to shopping …
