All Pinned Up

Vintage items have been a growing fashion trend for a while and the brooch has made its way back in a very big way. The designs of these pretty pins have upped and they are more modern looking and chic. Brooches can no longer be considered only for mature women of power or grandmas, they can give the cherry on top finish by adding femininity your look.

Instead of the traditional way of wearing a brooch on a top or on a dress, here are other creative ways of wearing brooches:

  • Thread through a chain to use as a pendant creating your own unique necklace.
