Pin on Your Sparkles

Brooches are no longer just for grannies -- in fact, rifling through your grandmother's jewelery box could actually be your key to being on top of one of the hottest accessory trends of the season.

If you're thinking of clipping one on to your tuxedo blazer, fine, that would do, but the hottest way to wear them isn't on your collar like they did back in the day. They're a way to embellish the fashions you already have, making them your own, and adding that extra glitz no woman can resist.

Consider pinning them on your black handbag to sparkle it up for a holiday party, on a tank to embellish your cleavage, to the corner of a bubble skirt, to the end of a scarf (if the pin is big enough, you can even use it to keep your scarf together in the middle) and if you're lucky enough to score two matching ones, you can pin them on a pair of ballerina flats for that extra touch of chic.

No jewelery box to scour? Not only can you check at vintage stores, garage sales or flee markets, but you can actually hit your local retailers, many of which have already caught onto the trend.
