The Chanel brooch

The Chanel brooch is a classic piece that can lift an outfit to another level.

When I was younger I associated wearing a brooch with ladies over a certain age. I grew up seeing them on my grandmother and great-grandmother. These two ladies were very classy and elegant. I admired their style when I was a little girl and I still do. I’ve even inherited a few fabulous pieces of clothing from my grandmother. But wearing a brooch myself was something I never considered. Definitely not my style. That was for grown-up classy ladies. I was more of a rock chic bracelet girl.

I like to think I’m forever 21, but I’m definitely not. And slowly but surely, my style has naturally developed and changed. A few years ago I discovered the classic Chanel CC brooch. Even though they have been in front of my eyes for many years, I never really SAW them, if that makes any sense.

Now I suddenly saw them on ladies of all ages with fabulous outfits. I developed a great fascination. Then pure love. I had to have one! So when I was in Paris a few years ago I purchased my very first Chanel brooch in their flagship store at 31 Rue Cambon. A beautiful brooch in pale gold with tiny little crystals, wrapped in the flagship’s signature white box. Sometimes a little happiness can definitely be bought. It was perfect.

Chanel brooches come in a huge variety of shapes and materials. Silver, gold, with pearls or crystals or both, with enamel, in plexiglass or just über classic plain and simple. Every season Chanel releases a new collection. So naturally, you want to own more than one!

I’m still a bracelet girl and love a good arm candy, but a brooch or two (or even three if you dare!) are a natural part of my uniform now as well. I love how a brooch instantly lifts your outfit, no matter how casual or formal your starting point is.

You can use them for every kind of outfit. On a denim shirt, denim jacket, a blazer, a utility jacket, a dress, a knitted sweater, etc. You can also pin it on a beanie or a beret. Or as a super chic pin in your hair. I’m already working on a post on how to wear a brooch so stay tuned.

  1. I LOVE brooch and been craving Chanel one for many years now. It’s super easy to style with, like you wrote! 🙂

  2. I think that’s neat that you’ve inherited some clothing from your grandma, pieces that have history are so special! And these brooches are beautiful, isn’t interesting how our tastes and style change as we get older?
