18 August 2014 - Brooches are Back in Vogue

Brooches are back in style in a big way for autumn, winter and spring. The trick is to wear a mass of them all at once though, not just one. This is what is appearing on the runways and I think it's rather nice.

I think this idea is a great one that could look well on bags too, if you don't want to wear them on your clothes.

Why not wear a theme of brooches? Perhaps a colour theme, or floral, bugs, gemstones, feathers. Whatever you feel like on any particular day. Or simply just mix them all up.

Vintage rhinestones of course, are the favourite.

So have a root through your jewellery boxes and sort out your brooches, your mums brooches and your grannies brooches and group them up, and use them.

It seems that jewellery is being worn collectively right now, and for the forthcoming seasons. Stacked bracelets, necklaces of different lengths all worn together, and now brooches en masse. I really like this look, and you can take the essence of the style and use it to a greater or lesser degree according to your own taste, and still be bang on trend.

I have all of my brooches pinned onto a pretty padded blue heart notice board made for me by Amanda Wright, artist. So when I'm not wearing them they are acting as a pretty , shabby chic piece of art on my wall.

You could do something similar with a picture frame.
