Brooches are the most fascinating variety of jewellery. However, these beauties are often avoided by many because it can be tricky to style or wear them. While some appear to visually accentuate your look, others seem to overshadow or over-accessorize it. But we promise; if styled ingeniously, these dazzlers will transform your look into something absolutely unavoidable. Once you get a taste of how flattering these can be, you will never turn your back on them! So, why wait? Read on to know some unique and creative ways to wear brooches:
The Back Of A Dress/Blouse
Bored of your simple backless dress? Jewel-it-up with a brooch! What we are trying to suggest is attaching a brooch to the centre of the top edge of the back of your dress. Try opting for something that either blends with the dress or the pieces of jewellery that you are choosing to wear. A charmingly contrasting piece or a creature-couture style brooch would be an exquisite means of statement style. The natural and engaging beauty of wildlife-inspired brooches will certainly amaze spectators.
Do you wish to keep it subtle yet not let it go unnoticed? Then go the “lowers” route. A piece or too fixed onto the centre of your waistband or strategically adorned around one of the pockets will look absolutely lovely. What such adornment does is that it adds a unique touch of motifs and glitter to an otherwise solid coloured and underwhelming garment giving it a customised and designer look. Try wearing one from our unique designer collection of brooches inspired from insects and arachnids for a bold and surprising embellishment that people won’t be able to get their eyes off of. A cute Christmas themed brooch will be a great choice for the festive end of the year.
Getting ready for a special wedding but can’t find a flattering hair-pin? Don a brooch instead! Yes, you read it right. Brooches are conveniently versatile. With just a dash of creativity, you can wear them in several ways. Take our gorgeous peacock-inspired brooch for example. You can affix it horizontally atop an elegant bun to give the illusion of a tiny peacock sitting there. Place it vertically on top of a teased & textured ponytail or even better, over a soft half-updo and relish the flowy & vintage beauty that its cascading peacock-tail will add to your hairstyle. A cute floral brooch that accentuates your dress will be a classy choice as well.
Centre Of The Neckline
There are times when you wish to accessorise your look with bold necklaces but can’t find the one that perfectly suits your look. At times, the chain seems too much or the entirety of the necklace makes your appearance look overdone when all you really needed was something that is simple yet captivating. Try donning a brooch in place of a pendant. Now how do you do it? Simple! Wear it in the centre of your dress’s neckline. The best thing is that this accessorising style works with most necklines like round, boat, scoop, square, you name it. However, when it comes to prominent necklines like cowl and halter; we suggest you go for brighter pieces with a subtler, simpler design and attach them an inch or two below the neckline or right in the centre of the neck-band.
People wearing brooches on or just under the shoulders on their sleeves is a pretty common sight. But how about wearing it in lieu of buttons or cufflinks? Try attaching a bold and uniquely designed brooch to the cuffs of each of your sleeves like buttons and we are sure you will love the new look you’ll have achieved. Another style to certainly try is wearing multiple brooches or a brooch-set like a bracelet (placed adjacent to each other) over sleeve-cuffs. You can use every ounce of creativity and create beautiful and customised adornments for a stylish and statement-style look.
Still a little dubious to try brooches? Then opt for a multipurpose item like our cute Butterfly-inspired pendant by designer Giuseppe Perez. “Why a pendant instead of a brooch?” – you ask. Well, this innovatively designed product can be used as a pendant, a ring as well as a brooch with just a press of a button! This set is perfect for those who like to test the waters before trying out something as bold and statement-making like a brooch. Think it seems a little too much for you as a ring or pendant? Easily remove the butterfly top using its tiny button and then affix it onto your dress and flaunt the same butterfly design as a fancy and flattering brooch!
Brooches are fantastic when it comes to subtle and elegant accessorising. One of the biggest benefits of this jewellery style is that they suit every occasion! No evening soiree is too fancy; no get-together is too merry and no date is too casual for a brooch. So, do not hesitate and purchase one (or more) dependable, versatile and pint-sized dazzler today!
