Pin on the Fun: Brooches are Back by “Celebrity Stylist” Anya Sarre

Luxurious accents and dazzling accessories are what fall fashion is all about this year! From the fashion show runways to the shelves on Main Street, clothes are getting the deluxe treatment with bold rhinestone trims and gorgeous bejeweled detailing. All the shimmering goodness is something everyone can get excited about!

One of the hottest trends this season lets you get in on the glittery action too. Adding a jewel encrusted brooch or two to your outfit can be a wonderful way to get your daily dose of sparkle.



At one time brooches did have a reputation for being old. There is a distinct retro feel about these pretty decorative pins and they were a favorite accessory of our grandmothers’ generation; however, brooches have made a big comeback and they are feminine, flirty, and fabulous. From chunky jeweled pins to delicate filigree ornaments, nothing spruces up an outfit quite like a shiny bauble. This Fall is the perfect chance to break out your vintage brooches and try wearing them in fun, creative ways.

Brooches are in essence jewelry for your clothes. Wear some girly pins to add some ladylike charm to otherwise boyish pieces. Blazers and button down shirts are staple fashion items for the autumn months. Dress them up with brooches full of gems and pearls to create a very fashionable contrast of masculine and feminine energy.

Start with a neutral colored blazer; black or cream are always great choices. Layer your blazer over a plain t-shirt and a pair of jewel-toned slacks or jeans. Pin a gemstone brooch onto the blazer lapel and complete the entire outfit with a black headband and some cute ankle boots or other comfortable shoes.



Use your best brooches to add some personalized flavor to your fall wardrobe. When the weather starts getting colder, we start bundling up in our coats, scarves, hats, and sweaters. This gives us the perfect opportunity for some brooch magic. Simply pin one on anywhere you want a bit of sparkle or decoration.

Brooches are absolutely fabulous because you can mix and match them with your favorite clothes, creating an infinite number of unique and stylish outfits. Brooches are such an interesting addition to your style, they are almost always guaranteed to be a conversation starter. Fasten a gemstone brooch to your favorite hat to give it some Fall fashion glam or use it as a clasp for your scarf.  You’ll keep the chills away and look amazing.
