Wear a Cluster of Brooches

If you have a collection of brooches, wear a cluster of them on a jacket, coat, cardigan, pullover, scarf or hat. You can wear as few as two, or as many as you like. Coats and jackets made of sturdier fabric tend to hold heavy brooches better, but lightweight brooches do just fine on lightweight fabric. The example below shows more than ten brooches pinned to a denim jacket, making quite the statement. Go for it if you like the maximal vibe, or create a cluster with fewer pins. Personally, I ha...
