The Style Gallery is a great new way for you to view, love, and share outfit photos. It’s meant to showcase all the expressive, creative, and inspirational personalities of our community!

If you feel like your look could use a distinct dose of character, we recommend fastening an adorable brooch to your jacket lapel, sweater or scarf! For a sampling of savvy accessories, check out our most-loved handmade Etsy brooches, pictured above. We’re especially smitten with the hanging laundry collar pin, and the sweet polar bears made by one of our favorite indie designers, Olivia Mew.
How do brooches and pins fit into your style?
I have a serious vintage brooch addiction. I love being able to pull something from my collection that adds just enough interest to simple outfits to finish them.
I have loads of them. Most of them I incorporate into jewelry, but right now my red winter coat has a brooch accompanied by a guinea feather (the grey and white spotted kind).
I absolutely love old, vintage brooches and pins! I have a couple from my grandmother, and they’re so classic and pretty. 🙂
LOVE the octopus pin!!! Ordering it right now!
I like pins, but I have trouble incorporating them. I used to cover everything in those little circular band pins.
I was lucky and inherited a lot of vintage, sparkly brooches from my great aunt. I have one pinned to a shoulder on a jacket that lost a button (my lazy style). I like to wear them in unexpected places, like at the waist, or on a beret … wherever! When the pin part breaks, as they often do, I turn them into pendants.
The laundry double brooch is pretty much the coolest thing ever!
