As Audrey Hepburn once said, “Life is a party, dress like it.”
At Zaza of Canada, we live by that motto, and our collection of jewelry and brooches are here to help make all of your days feel dazzling. Rhinestone brooches and extra large brooches are a great way to add some sparkle and flair to your outfit, but you might be wondering how to wear them. To help you get some style inspo, we’ve collected examples of five fashionable celebrities who have been rocking the brooch trend, and our advice on how you can wear brooches like the stars do.
The Duchess of Cambridge is a fashion icon for a reason, and she loves a good brooch! She often wears them in classic, elegant styles, pinned to the lapel of her tailored suits. She also likes to use brooches to add a pop of color, like pinning a big red floral brooch to a simple blue suit. Her outfits are great examples of how you can use brooches to experiment with different color combinations and incorporate some of your own personality into a classic suit look for a formal or professional event. Want to try it out? Our vintage red poppy brooch is similar to one that Kate wears!
Salma Hayek has worn brooches on more than one occasion. At the 2019 BAFTAs, she caught everyone’s eye with an extra large lizard brooch resting on her shoulder. Her daring choice shows us that even celebrities love to have fun with quirky accessories, but she’s also a fan of classic brooches, too! For example, at a Vanity Fair Oscar party, she wore a simple gold and emerald brooch with a red Yves Saint Laurent dress. Our vintage amber-colored brooch, pictured below, is a similar size and style to the one Salma wore. Throw it on as an accessory to a colorful dress, and you’ll feel like you’re at an Oscar party, too!
The members of the royal family rock brooches probably more than any celebrity—especially Queen Elizabeth II. For 90 years, she’s amazed the world with her unique, expansive jewerly collection. While she frequently wears all kinds of brooches, they tend to be classic, classy, and refined, and sometimes they even have hidden meanings. Our vintage rhinestone wedding brooch comes in a classic shape and style that’s similar to many of the Queen’s brooches. We recommend wearing this one for a night when you want to feel like a million bucks, without having to spend a million bucks.
We hope that our celebrity-inspired advice has given you inspiration to try out brooches in your own wardrobe! You can find more in our collection on Etsy at Zaza of Canada.
