If there is one piece of ornament that can instantly up your glam quotient, it undisputedly is the brooch. The accessory that gets passed over generations as heirloom jewelry always gets a thumbs up by most fashion designers. And for somebody who socializes frequently, investing in a range of ornate brooches does make sense.
You can opt for pearls, crystals, colored stones and may be even diamonds, if you have the money to do so. The classic flower is an all time favorite, but for a dramatic effect, one can experiment with abstract shapes.
You don’t always have to wear a brooch on your chest. Try wearing one your shoulder or just cluster a few around your neckline. You may also like to adorn your bag or scarf with one.
So for the next party, you don’t have to get yourself a new dress or a makeover. A brooch adorning your old dress will do all the magic.
