Brooches are fashion accessories that have been around for a while. They make a statement and can turn dresses (especially) from drab to fab. They instantly glam up your get- up.

Brooches are tricky because they should be properly placed (you don't want them ending up awkward on you) on any clothing item you are pinning them on.

When choosing a brooch, go with one that resonates with your overall outfit, look out for unique designs (antique brooches are uber glam) and pieces that are pretty. The trick is to choose gorgeous designs.

Add a pin to your plain top or cardi and watch your overall appearance transform.
