How To Wear: Holiday Brooches

Holiday Vintage Brooches

With every change in season, comes new ways to brooch it! While we loved curating brooches into a set of three for fall, we’re adding a bit of glam to our favorite accessories, sweaters, dresses and outerwear this holiday season with rhinestones, crystals and colored brooches. Styling a statement brooch is the easiest way to personalize your look while taking it to the next level involves putting your brooch curating skills to good use!


We tend to gravitate towards gorgeous rhinestone and crystal brooches this season because they add shimmering accents to the glitzy season. We love letting these types of styles make a statement all on their own! 

Pink, grey, blue, and clear rhinestones feel most modern while deeper colored rhinestone styles like browns, emerald, ruby, and black feel more elegant Pick your favorite statement brooch and let it do the talking all on it’s own! See below for a few ideas.
