With your clothes
There is, of course, the classic approach of pinning a brooch to the top-half of your dress, shirt, or blazer. But how about adding a modern twist to it? You can transform a dress that is cinched at the waist by pinning a brooch to the side. To inject casual elegance into your daily wear, try wearing a brooch as a button that fastens your cardigan, adding it to the knot of your scarf, or even decorating your hat!
There are ways to get even more creative -- Wear an oversized brooch that will truly make a statement (for example, as seen here). Another idea is to wear several brooches at once on your blazer with a devil-may-care attitude. A recent trend is to pin several brooches of similar style and color along the neckline of your dress to create the illusion of a necklace (check out this gorgeous piece here).
With your accessories
Who says brooches only belong on clothing? You can even personalize your accessories with a brooch. Attach your favorite brooch to a necklace or bracelet to create more visual interest and detail to your jewelry. Give new life to your old, plain purse by pinning on a fun brooch (or brooches). Do something unexpected and add a quirky brooch to your belt. The possibilities are endless!
In your hair
Nothing says ooh-la-la like a sparkly brooch added to an updo, side ponytail, or headband. A brooch in the shape of a flower or a butterfly can create a feminine and romantic look to your hairstyle without the need for fancy hair accessories!
