Brooches were left in obscurity for a few years in the history of fashion, but thanks to the latest trends and people trying to improve their outfits through various accessories, brooches are a key fashion item once again. They have been known since ancient times and one of the favorite decorative jewelry for a lot of important people, especially in the Victorian era, but their history is known from way back during the Bronze Age. Women used to wear them for both decorative and practical purposes, such as fastening a piece of clothing. Nowadays, brooches maintained their purpose and are one of the most versatile pieces of jewelry.

There are many types of brooches, but the first thing you need to consider when choosing one is the size. You need to make sure that you have the right size brooch for the type of clothing you are wearing. If you are looking to make a fashion statement, or you want to follow a trend that involves large chunky pieces of jewelry, you are free to choose a bigger brooch. However, if you want to add your brooch to a simpler outfit or an elegant one, you should just go for something more subtle and perhaps less colorful. While we are on the subjects, you should remember that the color of your brooch has to match the rest of your outfit or it can be that beautiful colorful item on a very bland type of clothing.

There are also different styles to brooches, some will prefer more elegant vintage or antique styles, while other will like more futuristic models. There are also cute and playful styles, mostly suited for casual wear; never combine those styles with an office suit or something similar, it would look very wrong.

When it comes to the materials your brooch is made of you can choose from a variety of things. From metal brooches that are not made from any precious material, to gold or platinum brooches with diamonds and other fancy types of designs. It is up to you, and your budget, what you will choose to wear.

Brooches can be a really fun way to improve any dull outfit and make it look more original.
