A well-dressed seasoned lady of the 305 knows that any cardigan can use some serious spicing up. Nothing turns a button-down into a statement piece like an over-the-top brooch. No, we aren't talking a floral bouquet, one of those loud, curly pieces with all the springs coming off of it, or a feline in a hat (though, we did find some cool cat additions, if you want), but with this season's current art deco trend, sprucing up your lapel has never been easier. Find one with geometry to add literal edge, or a cool shape that twists the traditional pinned accessory.
