In case you needed another reason to go digging through your mother and grandmother's jewelry cabinets, Fall 2012 provides the perfect opportunity. Brooches are not a dated sign of the past any longer. In fact, they are incredibly popular this season.

Designers such as Oscar De La Renta and Lanvin sent statement-making brooches down the runway for Fall 2012. Even celebrities are getting into the trend: The Duchess of Cambridge, Michelle Obama, and Frida Pinto style theirs classically, while bloggers are rocking them in non-traditional ways and statement-making sizes.

Think of all the ways to wear a brooch - you can accessorize a sweater, scarf, hat, purse, or even your hair! A cluster of brooches is dramatic, and a sure way to make a statement, while a single brooch gives off a classy, elegant vibe.
