Effortless Essentials: Brooches

Vintage Brooch Ladybug Brooch Vintage Brooches

Accessories are critical when it comes to stretching a classic, minimized wardrobe. From hats to belts to jewelry, these add-ons have the power to completely transform standard pieces and add that extra pizzazz that keeps things from being boring. Brooches are the perfect example of this concept and are one accessory I can't get enough of. Whether I'm wearing a simple t-shirt or classic shift, brooches add that perfect lady-like polish that makes the outfit memorable.  

The best places to find vintage brooches are local thrift and antique shops, flea markets and of course eBay and Etsy. If you dedicate some time to searching through the offerings, you can find some one-of-a-kind, gorgeous pieces to add to your collection. Below, I have included some of the ways I've styled my brooches in the past that I hope will inspire you to give it a go.
