We understand that for many women wearing a brooch is a thing of the past, memories of your grandma or Madeleine Albright might scare you away from owning a brooch or pin. But do not be afraid. There are other ways to wear a brooch other than pinned on your lapel. Wear them to fasten your scarf, use it as a hair pin, or pile them up on your favorite chunky sweater. These amazing vintage pieces from Chanel would look striking together on a fitted wool dress or use the pin as a closure to a cardigan or low cut blouse. The Lacroix heart and cross should be fastened on your favorite hat and not only on Christmas!
