Brooches - what you can learn from your grandma
Leather pleats, pearls, mittellange Plissé skirts … all the things you used to dress up and dressed up in Grandma's wardrobe have for some time decorated the streets of the largest modem tramlines. Whether Céline, Proenza Schouler, The Row or Chanel – all these pioneers of the fashion industry had their models in the past seasons with a very special accessory the catwalks – the brooch .
Nostalgia overruns the fashion world, but instead of simply copying the looks of the past, the art lies in reinterpreting it and adapting it to the current zeitgeist. So the question arises – how do I wear the brooch 2016?
THE BROOCH IN WINTER
As far as Wintermode is concerned, we are all rather hands-on. The old pair of winterboots keep better than the chic Balenciaga Boots of the current season and the warm knit sweater – even if totally trendy – simply takes precedence over the trendy tops with sweet but so impractical cut-outs. With a vintage Chanel brooch on the coat collar, the winter uniform quickly becomes a washy eye-catcher.
THE BROOCH AM COLLECTING
The old, reliable oversize boyfriend shirt will be a bit glamorous when the shirt collar is fitted with a simple, monochrome brooch . Coupled with a cigarette shorts, red lipstick and sleeveless heels, a daily outfit is a perfect outfit – perfect for a casual sexyness or the je ne sais quoi that we admire so much in French.
THE BROOCH AT THE WAIST
Street style chic meets tradition – in order to give a simple look a little femininity and put a special emphasis on the outfit, Alexa Chung combines a simple overall with a glittering brooch at the waist. The look also works with the evening gown with single-colored, long dresses.
A BROOCH AS A STATEMENT
Very direct and striking is a colorful, big brooch at the neckline – with a high-necked dress
A BROOCH ON THE HAIR?
Hello red carpet! From the red-carpet-favorite Scarlett Johannson, who has already decorated her mane with brooches countless times – with long, open hair and a butterfly brooch – she has a youthful, relaxed atmosphere, with a plug-in hat with babylocks and several , smaller brooches it looks very elegant, if not aristocratic and with loose, sticky hair and a very discreet brooch, the look is very modern and bold.
THE BROOCH ON THE SHOULDER
A look that is particularly suitable for evening events – the brooch on the shoulder can be taller and attract attention while being paired with a simple one-shoulder dress. But also a symmetrical neckline with a brooch on a shoulder can look very exciting and extravagant.
A BROOCH AT THE HAT
When it comes to inspiration, how hats are worn, one does not need to look further than to the British royal family – they have long worn their hats with a brooch. The aristocratic look you get with every sort of hat and brooch – plus a blazer and pearl chain to it and a thumbs-up of Kate Middleton is guaranteed.
THE BROOCH AT THE BAG
The old bag, which has not been worn for a long time, gets an update – with a brooch looks a clutch completely different and gets a completely new Vibe. Even larger bags can be adorned with the eye-catcher and to whom the bag is too bad – not everyone wants to pierce his Chanel 2.55 or Hermès Kelly Bag piercing, understandably – the brooch can be attached to a nice cloth and then tie it around the handle – voilà , the pocket update is done.
