How To Wear a Christmas Brooch

‘Tis the season to dress festively. As Christmas approaches, even the biggest Grinch can feel a bit more in the spirit by adding some holiday sparkle to their outfit. Brooches are a low investment, easily accessible way to jazz up your outfit without going full-on Mrs. Claus. You can find those with old-school charm at vintage stores or shop new online or even some cute handmade ones on maker websites like Etsy.

Here are some ways to wear a Christmas Brooch to make any outfit a holiday outfit.

On a Hat

When it starts to feel cold outside, a hat is usually the first thing to reach for to keep you warm. Try adding a Christmas brooch to your beanie or beret to add some fun flair.  Shop hats.

On a Cozy Scarf

Bring on the bling to your trusty neck-warming scarf by pinning on a Christmas brooch. Your holiday spirit will be front and center!  Shop wool scarves.

On a Coat Lapel

Sure, you often see a brooch on the lapel of a coat. But why wear one brooch when you can wear two? Better yet, create a theme – such as a Christmas tree and a present, or Santa and a reindeer.  Shop coats.

On a Wrap

Wraps are a great way to keep warm when it’s getting colder out. You can throw them over any outfit. But they often become unwrapped. A brooch will solve that problem by pinning your wrap in place.  Shop wraps.

As a Scarf Ring

A small fashion scarf is always a good way to add some pizzazz to an outfit. Add a brooch where you tie one on and you’ll have a wealth of Christmas style. For more ideas on how to wear a scarf ring, see my previous article Shop scarves.

So now that you know how to wear a Christmas brooch, how will you style yours?
