How to Wear a Vintage Brooch

Grandma’s vintage brooch is having a major fashion moment. Open any magazine you’ll see everything from flower pins on scarves to brooch cluster on wedding bouquets. Still, it can be overwhelming to consider the best ways to wear the style without feeling outdated.

Here are our top 7 tips for rocking a vintage brooch. 

1. Mind the Placement:

Traditionally, brooches were worn on the front lapel This placement remains the most timeless and elegant position for adorning your vintage brooch.  There’s a reason, why a fine jewelry brooch on a Chanel suit lapel is still one of the most iconic looks in fashion history. However, if you’re looking for a twist, you may consider flaunting your brooch on your bust or even at the center of a collar on a button-up. 

2. Mix It Up

Gucci, Oscar de la Renta, YSL and Marni have all featured a plethora of assorted brooch styles on their runways in 2019. New trends feature an eclectic cluster of brooches worn on the same shoulder. Think of a cluster of assorted flowers or a beautiful menagerie of ladybugs, bees and butterflies. Combining new pieces with more antique styles and monochromatic pins with colorful pieces adds a sense of playfulness and fun to the look.  

3. Don’t Be Afraid of a Little Asymmetry

Use a brooch to close an asymmetrical cut sweater or jacket. Missing a top button on your favorite white blouse?  Adorn it with a decorative pin.

4. Be Creative!

Brooches can serve as gorgeous adornments in unexpected areas. Use a vintage brooch to close the back of your dress. Imagine a satin backless dress held together with a diamond brooch. Perfection.  

5. Wear it as a Jewelry

Wear it on a beautiful chain for a floating effect or a silk cord or a strand of pearls around your neck for a formal affair. You can also hook it onto a barret for a bold hair look. 

6. When in Doubt, Accessorize

Brooches can offer a sleek addition to any handbag.  Attach one or a cluster to a vintage clutch or a cloth handbag to polish up your look!

7. Wear Your Brooch on the MOST Important Occasion

 

Honor your grandmothers and great aunts by using their brooches in your wedding bouquet.
