Brooches are re-emerging on the catwalk. We have a theory that there is a reticence in embracing them simply due to a lack of confidence and creativity in how or where to wear them.
They have so much more potential than being consigned to the lapel of a jacket- and are far more versatile than you think.
- wear them on a choker around your neck (Blake Lively illustrates this look beautifully). They look modern and fabulous, although the idea is vintage;
- if you have long flowing locks that you wear up in a “do”, weave a brooch (or two) into your hair. It looks amazing;
- if you have an evening gown with a low back, a brooch makes a striking and unexpected appearance on the back of a dress;
- waist of a dress;
- attach them to a hat; or
- securing a scarf.
Nicole Kidman and Gwen Stefani effortlessly illustrate how striking a brooch can look in unconventional ways.
If you have unused jewellery that you no longer wear, or inherited pieces that could do with a refresh, this could be an opportunity to explore the hidden wonders of the world of brooches.
