We never need an excuse to add a bit of bling to our daily duds, but sometimes we tire of weight around our necks, moldy Coachella friendship bracelets, and just can't bring ourselves to don our favorite chandeliers again. Feeling out of options, too?
Enter the brooch. This unexpected sister of the statement necklace is easily forgotten, but shouldn't be! Here's why: Unlike some other jewelry, lapel pins are never out of place. In fact, the less obvious the placement, the fresher they look.
Our styling tips? Cluster three off-center on your chest, use one to cinch that deep V, or be bold and wear one on your shoulder (classic and seriously cool). Nestle one in that lightweight summer scarf when the sun goes down at a backyard Venice BBQ, dress up a trusty cross-body at The Pikey, or accentuate the pocket line on your cutoffs at the Rose Bowl — believe us, the options are endless.
And, apparently, we aren't the only peeps interested in bringing brooches back. Click through for far-out and fab options from all your fave e-tailers and designers! Now how's that for brooching the accessories subject?
