Brooches are commonly associated with vintage fashion. But while this sophisticated pin is often used as an accessory with vintage clothes, the modern fashionistas of today have already incorporated it in their wardrobe. We spotted actress Ginnifer Goodwin sporting a lovely brooch with her pink-and-black Marni ensemble at the season 4 premiere of Once Upon a Time, and our eyes were instantly drawn to her sparkly art-deco-styled pin.

Another fan of the brooch is the Duchess of Cambridge herself. Kate Middleton, along with other fashionable royalty, often finishes her prim and proper ensembles with a contrasting or matching pin placed on the left or right side of her coat. At one of the royal events, Princess Kate wore a gray ensemble topped with a pearl cluster brooch that matched her pearl drop earrings. If you want to go with a sophisticated look, pearl brooches are a great way to add a touch of elegance to your outfit.

Stylist and fashion blogger Olga Oliwye Soukupova showed us how to mix this vintage accessory with a modern wardrobe. Dressed in head-to-toe black and carrying a Chanel purse, Olga added a silver-toned bird brooch and pinned it on an edgy military jacket.
