Sparkling Tips for Casa Ladies: Brooches


This post is also available in: Spanish

BroochesWhen we hear the word “brooch” or “pin”, we think of something antiquated and outdated, and we could not be any more wrong. While it’s true that brooches were used by men and women in ancient times for special occasions to enhance elegance, today brooches can be worn on a daily basis-  wear them as a complement to your look.

The brooch is a very versatile piece of jewelry and that’s why this week I bring you some tips on how to get the most out of it.

Brooches Variety


The easiest way to wear a brooche is to pin it on a scarf, but as we live in paradise, this rule does not apply to us, except when we travel. However if happen to like wearing blazers or shirts, you can use a pin to add a feminine touch.

Brroches Clothing

Another way to wear a brooche is in unusual places – to add a touch of added glamour to ordinary clothing. You can wear them in your hair, on a purse or at your shoulder, waist and even on your shoes. Be creative and experiment!

Brooches Unnusual Places

You can use several small brooches at the same time to create a more interesting look. The important thing here is that they are of the same genre or style; like vintage, for example. Unless you like the eclectic style.

Brooches Last

Go beyond diamonds! There are many contemporary and ethnic style brooches that transform a dull look into a more interesting and colorful one.

After reading these tips, I’m sure you will see brooches from a more modern point of view, and those who love brooches will be happy to wear them at any time and occasion.
