Brooches : Current Trend – Vintage Look

March 24, 2011 4 Comments
I have never been someone who finds it easy to wear brooches, even vintage ones. I always associate them with being on a jacket lapel and therefore I tend to think of them as formal and a Winter item!!
However with a little imagination brooches can be employed in many different ways and teamed with any kind of outfit, any time of year.
Add a Vintage brooch to an ensemble and you add a little bit of sparkle and originality.
For some inspiration here are Blake Lively, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lauren Conrad and Katherine Heigl all using brooches in creative way and how you can recreate the look with a Vintage Brooch from Bang On Vintage

    Yes brooches are making a big comeback! We’re selling loads of hair jewels (converting brooches into fabulous hair combs that are so unique).
