Scarves are great fun: You can tie them a bazillion ways; use them to dress up a boring outfit; and of course, use them to keep your décolletage warm. But on a blustery fall day, a scarf whipping around your face can be more hassle than it’s worth (anyone who has smeared lip gloss on a pashmina knows what’s up). Thank goodness that fall 2015 style projections have officially brought back the brooch.
This classic scarf-wrangling technology works two-fold: It keeps your scarf firmly in place around your neck. And it looks great while doing it.
We suggest going the vintage route, since ladies of the middle century sure knew how to accessorize. Also, just check the front counter at any local vintage shop, and you’ll definitely find a pile of old brooches just waiting for their forever homes. Northside’s NVISION is lousy with classic retro brooches of all shapes and sizes, so you don’t even have to make any tough decisions. Just get one for every day of the week and wait for the compliments to roll in.
