HOW TO STYLE BROOCHES
My newest accessory obsession are brooches. I. LOVE. BROOCHES. ! It started when I was young, between my mom and all of my grandmothers, I had plenty of brooches to choose from. Plastics flowers, crystals, beads, you name it I have seen it and now… I have it. My collection is still pretty small I am still curating brooches that speak to me. I want timeless, classic, vintage brooches that I can add to anything. Late last year, for Christmas , I tried doing a brooch corsages, where I add brooches to the lapel of coats and blazers to mirror the look of a corsage. You can add brooches to just about any item, handbags, scarves, or hats, but my favorite place to add brooches is on my blazer and outerwear.
There are a few ways to organize your broaches one is by color and the other is by theme. First, I decide what way I want to style my brooches, by theme or color. I lay the brooches on the jacket and I begin to arrange and play with the sizes of the brooches and how they will lay on the jacket. Once I have a layout I like, I pin one at a time to create a cluster of gems.
