Brooches have made a comeback. The key to updating a classic style is to add a new twist. Wear the brooch in an unconventional way or be a little quirky. Be that as it may, I was very excited to be sharing some motivation on one of my greatest pet interests: brooches! So I thought I’d delve a bit deeper into the subject, and share with you 5 reasons why I love brooches. Because, they’re still high on my list of favourite accessories.
And who knows? Maybe after reading this, they’ll be on yours too:
They are ultra feminine.
In fact, brooches have been historically worn by people in Roman, Greek, Viking and Celtic social orders
But post 19th century brooches became more and more ornate, and became widely recognized as beautiful embellishments for women’s hats, dresses, jackets and even gloves.
Which doesn’t imply that guys can’t take them too!
They have a vintage, demure air.
Some women believe brooches to be somewhat a bit old fashioned.
But you know what?
For lovers of vintage, demure or granny chic style, they are golden! A pin can help you express your romantic, dreamy, whimsical side. Or on the other hand they can be really playful, elegant, and even majestic looking.
They can be an amazing looking “olden days” piece in contrast to your modern day outfit.
They aren’t so commonplace.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but brooches aren’t the most popular accessories. Which doesn’t mean you should steer clear too- on the contrary! It just means that brooches will provide you a more unique look.
What’s more, in case you’re after really exceptional pieces, hit up the vintage markets.
Make sure to do your research before buying, then have fun!
They easily provide a big visual impact.
In case you’re burnt out on explanation pieces of jewelry or enormous studs, you can always repy on your brooch.
Pin one (or a couple) to your blouse, hap or your bag, and watch people “Ooh! and “Aah!” over them.
The most fun part?
You can mix and match your pieces, and rely on your pins for an outfit pick-me-up.
They can be worn in a myriad of ways.
I hope you enjoyed reading this, and I’m super curious to hear if you’re as fanatic for brooches as I am. Let me know down below!
