Brooches had played hooky for long, disappearing and reappearing in the periphery until recently. This year marks the beginning of a new era for these fabulous fashion artefacts. The revival of brooches is one of the momentous events in the fashion world this year. Designers all over the world are heavily endorsing these pieces with their models walking the ramp wearing decorative pins in their dresses. So, this year is the best hope for these ornate fashion add-ons to make a grand comeback. The best thing about brooches today is that they can be worn creatively. Though their place on the lapels is still confirmed, there are so many new ways in which you can wear your grandma’s brooch and look fashionably stylish in today’s context.
So, here are some ways you can flaunt your brooch, starting from hats to boots.
Hats can unbelievably transform the aesthetic quotient of attires. And now you can make them look even more chic by attaching a nice pin on the side. Avoid the visor, top flat and back of the hat. Everywhere else is great to put a nice little brooch on.
If lapels look too predictable or old-fashioned for you, then play around. The collar of your coat is a great place to tuck a brooch in. Avoid the back of the collar, but not when you wear your hair in a top bun. Even the front ends of the collar are a great resting place for a nice brooch. Depending on the style of collar, pick a brooch of size that looks best.
On Coat Fronts
The front of your coat is where larger and embellished brooches should be. For brooches the size of a medal or above, the coat front is the best place because it enjoys uninterrupted visibility. Let your hair fall at the back on the side of the brooch to flaunt it.
Below the waist line where the pockets are is a good place to pin a brooch. Should you choose to wear your brooch on your pant, you must tuck the front of your shirt to let the eyes fall on it. Avoid wearing a gorgeous belt, a belly chain or anything else that can divide the attention.
Brooches look great when worn on the sides of high ankle boots. Just make sure your boot doesn’t have any bling buckles up top.
