Do you want to know how to wear a brooch? Well if so you’ve come to the right place as we have plenty of ideas on different ways to show off your brooches.
Where is a brooch worn? Everywhere!
In Your Hair
Let’s start at the top.
You certainly have plenty of options for wearing your brooch in your hair. You can display it in the same way that you would wear a hair clip. This shows off your unique piece of jewellery with no distractions.
Alternatively you can attach a brooch to your hat, beret or any other type of headwear. If you don’t wish to fix the brooch directly to your hat you can pin it to a ribbon tied round your hat.
Add a Brooch To Your Jacket
Probably the most traditional way to wear a brooch or pin is by adding it to your jacket or coat.
Deciding on where to pin a brooch on your jacket is really a matter of personal preference. However here are some suggestions (and images) showing some of the best locations.
The most popular place for a brooch is on the lapel of a jacket or the collar of a coat. If you are interested in the history of brooches then we can recommend an excellent article written by the Jewellery Editor
A brooch can also be added to the pocket of your jacket, blouse or shirt.
If you want a different, less traditional look then why not try adding a brooch to the sleeve of your jacket? You can also make even more of a statement by wearing a pair of brooches with one on each sleeve.
Pin A Brooch To Your Jumper
As well as being a great accessory for all your coats and jackets your brooch will also look great when worn on a jumper.
Use a Brooch as a Fastening – Sari, Blouse or Dress
You can also use a brooch or pin to help fasten your clothing. This works well on many items of clothing including on a sari (spree), blouse or dress.
Wearing a Brooch on a Hat
You can add a brooch to spice up the look of a hat. The brooch can be added straight to the body of the hat, or you might want to fix it to a ribbon or band on the hat.
