Style Translator: Brooches for Days
Jan 28, 2019
A few years ago, crystal brooches were very trendy. I bought a set. Many of you bought sets. And much like mine, I bet yours are sitting in the back of your jewelry box, unworn, and unloved. Let’s change that.
1. Joji Crystal Brooch Set ($15) // 2. BR Riley Tailored Shirt ($68) // 3. J.Crew Crewneck Sweatshirt ($69) // 4. Isa Tapia Silver Flats ($195) // 5. H Halston Cat Eye Sunglasses ($68) // 6. Balmain Double-Breasted Jacket ($2,497)
This outfit has a stylish, layers look to it. It mixes the crispness of a white button-up with the relaxed style of a cozy sweatshirt. And to top it all off, a chic, menswear-inspired double breasted blazer.
I chose this Balmain blazer because no one else had a picture sans-model. Obviously, buying a blazer that costs a month’s pay isn’t the norm around here. This Boden Adelstone Blazer has great style for a much more affordable $180. This Oasis blazer and Shein blazer are both under-$100.
The brooches are a similar-looking crystal spray. Scatter them along the yoke for a bit of sparkle. I also like this Joan Rivers bee brooch with pearl accent.
I added the silver flats because I think they would look lovely with this combination, picking up the shine in the brooches. If you need ideas for bottoms, I would suggest these gray Banana Republic trousers or these Dojo wide leg jeans.
