Text Message

Nicholas: Bro! What are you wearing?

Me: Gotta be more specific homie lol

Nicholas: That pin you’re wearing lol

Me: Lol Oh. It’s not a pin, it’s brooch.

Nicholas: So you fancy huh?

I get text messages like this all the time and that’s because I’m not afraid to try new ways to improve my personal style! One way that I amplify my style is by wearing antique brooches with most of my outfits. It’s just enough of fancy and flashy without people thinking I’m gaudy. Guarantee you gentlemen are going to enjoy this post because let’s be real men’s fashion can get a little boring sometimes and a little extra bling never hurt anybody!

Brooches add a splash of elegance to any outfit that you can think of. It’s funny how this piece of unique jewelry can add something deliciously drastic to your look. The brooch trend is fairly new to men’s fashion but has always been around from centuries dating about to Marie Antoinette days.  Whether they’re big or small they’ll always be center piece for your fit.

Don’t be ashamed of what i’m about to tell you next but go ahead and talk to your grandma and ask her what brooches she doesn’t use anymore. Pick the ones that aren’t as girly (or girly if that’s what you’re into). Ask to borrow it and never give it back. You’ll thank me later seriously. The more confident you get with wearing brooches the more dapper you’ll be!

The brooch trend even caught on the magenta carpet at this year’s Billboard Music awards with the host of the night, Christopher “Ludacirs” Bridges and Empire actor, Jussie Smollett. Ludacris wore a burgundy tux with black silk lapels and added black diamond owl brooch that was simply stunting. Completely different from the always wearing a bomber and jersey rapper that we love. Jussie had a young black hollywood hipster vibe going on with a fashionable bomber and cropped pants. He added a platinum studded brooch in the shape of a bird to make his look stellar!

Whether it’s me wearing brooches or celebrities wearing brooches; you should venture out of the mundane and get into the brilliance of wearing brooches. Don’t be afraid to use your imagination with this one. Think BIG and don’t let anyone tell you any different. As always, stay fly trendsetters
