Bevy of Brooches

Your grandmother isn't the only one donning brooches these days. Jeweled and ornamental brooches have made their appearances on runways, celebrities and fashion editorials. I find them most distinctively charming when worn in unconventional ways; as hair accessories (on headbands for example), on jeans, clutches and handbags, belts, necklaces and even shoes. Below from top left to right: Bronze Crystal & Pearl - Avalaya, $24 | Diamante B/W Bow Tie - Avalaya, $18 | Flower Corsage - TopShop, $18 | Military Safety Pin - ASOS, $10.15 | Art Deco Pin - Newport News, $15 | Zipper Flower Brooch - TopShop, $12.50 | Kenneth Jay Lane Gold-plated Snake - Net-A-Porter, $110 | Teal Cat with Bow Tie - Avalaya, $23 | Diamante Corsage (Multicolor) - Avalaya, $27 | Lizard - FantasyJewelryBox, $28.95

I find that brooches are unfairly ignored. Let's put them out into the spotlight even more!

Brooch on the waist for a wrap around dress is pretty fresh, like the Olsen's editorial. It really adds something to her outfit :)
