With Covid and wearing a mask, I find myself reaching more for necklaces and brooches, than earrings. What I often forget is that there are many ways to wear a pin or brooch and here are some examples with pictures taken from the shop and my real life outfits!
#1 On a sweater.
This is the classic look. Place it near your shoulder, but above your boob, please. (We blogged about this before.)
#2 On your collar.
If you're wearing a collared shirt and Peter Pan collar dress, why not put a contrasting brooch on it!? Instant different look!
#3 On a necklace.
Change up your necklace and pin the brooch to the necklace. You can even pin it to your top/dress if it's heavy. It's an anchor for your necklace!
#4 On a hat.
We've been putting pins in our hats from the start. Why not pin a brooch there!
#5 On a purse.
This usually works best on a fabric or straw bag.
#6 On a jacket or coat lapel.
Take your business casual to the next level!
#7 In a cluster. Scatter them around.
Did you know - small pins sold together are called scatter pins! But if you don't have a matched set, why not go for a theme instead? How many is best? 3 is the magic number!
#8 Anchor a scarf so it doesn't slide around.
Keep that perfected look all day with no worry your scarf will shift. Use with a thinner scarf and larger broch so you can avoid pinning through the scarf.
#9 At your waist.
Here is a brooch over a fabric belt bow.
#10 As closure.
Pin a sweater together, almost like sweater clips or a button!
#11 In your hair.
This particular flower is a hair flower clip and a brooch.
Bonus! No holes in your clothes
Don't want to make holes in your outfit with a brooch? Use the Magna Magnetic Brooch Holder
! It's a no - hole magnetic pin holder that will hold almost any size broch.
I hope this gave you some inspiration! You can shop our over 150+ both vintage and retro brooches here
