So how do you wear a brooch and still manage to look stylish?

Here’s how.

1. Size matters:
Find the perfect balance in brooch size.
If it’s too big, it will draw attention away from your face. Too small and people won’t notice it.

2. Weight Matters too:

Pair a thin dress with a light brooch. Attaching a heavy brooch to a thin dress will lead to saggy creases. It would also leave unsightly, gaping holes in your outfit.

3. Occasion Matters:

There are different types of brooches- the simple ones, the colorful ones, the elaborate ones… Wear each type according to the occasion. Wearing a loud elaborate brooch to a conservative workplace is a no no.

Side Tip: Dress up your bags and purses with brooches. If you cannot attach it directly to the bag material, attach them to the zipper pull or metal rings dangling from the purse itself. They are a cheap and simple way to give your bags and outfits a facelift!
