After making quite the comeback on the fall 2015 runways, from Prada to Dolce & Gabbana, the brooch trend is here to stay. The once stale and overlooked accessory has become cool again. However, the newest designs are much more modern than the heirlooms you may find in your grandmother’s jewelry box. Seen in every material from plastic, to crystal, to feathered in the form of animals, three-dimensional florals, and super-modern graphic shapes and lettering, the modern brooch is quirky and interesting—even when taking nod to its antique roots.
Pin them to the lapel of your coat, the neckline of your sweater, the end of your scarf, or hell, even in your ponytail to instantly make your look more interesting.
