Let’s Focus on Brooches

If throwback fashion is kind of your thing, you’re in luck this season. Vintage vibes have overtaken the runway! We here at Heirloom Finds have been noticing that brooches have become especially prominent in this year’s fall fashion trends. If you’re looking for ways to rock these retro baubles while making a cutting-edge statement, we have some tips you’ll be dying to try!

Black Blazer

This vintage Bakelite brooch adds a perfect pop of color to a black blazer.

Perhaps the most commonplace location for attaching a brooch is on a blazer. However, that doesn’t mean the look needs to be boring. Opt for something large, bright and eye-catching to enliven an otherwise demure lapel and attract compliments on your unique fashion sense.

Pink Blazer

A romantic vintage rose brooch makes such a sweet statement on a pink lapel.

If you’re not quite ready to go bold with your brooches, a more delicate alternative is to pair a romantic long-stemmed rose pin with a blush pink blazer. The resulting look is flirty, floral and feminine without being overly cloying.

Collar

This Sarah Coventry cameo brooch adds classic appeal to your workday wardrobe.

Does your workday wardrobe include several collared blouses? Every one of those tops offers an opportunity to style a vintage pin. Simply attach a classically gorgeous brooch below the top button and go! It’s best to opt for smaller, lightweight pieces in these instances.

Blanket Scarf 2

This 1960′s aurora borealis crystal brooch suits a purple striped blanket scarf perfectly!

Trying to keep off the crisp autumn chill? You can easily rock a brooch while staying bundled up! Pick out a cozy blanket scarf, wrap it around you and attach a brooch to hold it in place. We’re sort of obsessed with the look of sparkling crystals against soft woven textiles.

White Ruanna 2

This vintage wire wildflower brooch makes a striking statement on a fringed knit ruana.

The resurgence of the ruana this year provides yet another fantastic chance for rocking a brilliant brooch. Choose something bright, bold and metallic to fasten onto a fringed wrap. The ruana’s versatile nature is replete with potential with regard to pin placement.

Turtleneck 2

Take a turtleneck and add a fabulous floral brooch to achieve vintage fashion greatness.

If sweaters are more your scene, try fastening an eye-catching brooch onto a turtleneck collar. You couldn’t ask to look more fabulous while staying so warm! We prefer the appearance of a metallic flower pin against a darker knit for optimum autumn panache.

Denim Jacket

This super cute cluster of floral brooches expertly enlivens a basic denim jacket.

Don’t be afraid to wear more than one brooch at once! The clustered look is lovely when you have the right collection of pins. The possibilities here are limitless! A few flower pins, for example, turn a denim jacket into a backdrop for a lovely bouquet of beautiful blooms.

Hat 2

This darling Coro cameo brooch makes the ideal companion for a black floppy hat.

Think brooches are only for wearing below the shoulders? Think again! Any pin styled on a chic chapeau can make an incredibly gorgeous and wholly original statement. A band on a black floppy felt hat is the perfect place for fastening the prettiest brooch you own. You can also experiment in glamming up beanies, cloches and trilbies as well to curate a look that’s uniquely you.

Ponytail

Wear a retro brooch in your hair to make an unparalleled vintage fashion statement.

If you have a hair tie, you have one more opportunity to show off a favorite brooch. A basic ponytail becomes something one-of-a-kind when you add a brooch to the back. Any hairstyle you choose, however, has creative potential for stunningly showcasing a pin.

These suggestions should have you well on your way to becoming a brooch styling expert. Enjoy finding your favorite way to wear these dazzlingly versatile accessories!
