Brooches are making a serious comeback.
Gone are the days when an elegant brooch was reserved for women of specific ages. In 2022, current trends and styles are in full support of brooches as a fashion statement that is both radical and contemporary.
Believe it or not, brooches have been so popular as of late that even men are joining in on the trend. Nick Jonas’ look on The Voice in 2021 helped to coin the term “big brooch energy”.
Brooches are an accessory that can add as much as you want to an outfit. Depending on the style of brooch and the location that you choose to wear it, you can go bold or remain subtle—it’s up to you.

On your jacket or coat
