All About The Brooch
06.10.19

At L&O we have long been fans of a beautiful bejewelled brooch.  A hugely versatile and, until recently, largely overlooked jewellery box item that has the ability to transform any outfit in seconds.  Need to spruce up your classic black pant, black blazer Saturday night combo? Add a brooch. Bored of your beret? Add a brooch. Keen to add a little something extra to your favourite silk scarf? You get the gist...

We love that the brooch is finally having its well deserved moment both in street style and catwalks alike and, in celebration of two newly launched additions to our vintage brooch collection, we've rounded up a few of our favourite examples of fresh new ways to wear the once-traditional adornment on style bloggers, models and Vogue editors of late.

 

Vogue UK Deputy Editor Sarah Harris makes the case for traditional lapel placement
- such an effortless way to elevate a staple denim and blazer combo.

 


We love this creative approach 
- at the seam of a skirt gather, drawing the eye to the beautiful tailoring detail.

 


Another unique brooch placement, at the nape of the neck,
in lieu of a necklace, giving this all-black outfit a little something extra.

 


A little added interest to a knit polo sweater during the cooler months 
- a brooch is a versatile piece that will carry you through all seasons.

 

Just In: New Vintage Brooches at L&O


CC has always loved brooches, adding them to the lapel of a blazer, a styling cue her fashion loving grandmother was famous for. 

Just launched: Our Vintage Feline Brooch. Gold-plate, enamel and circa 1980s, add a little fierce to your outfit with this wild piece, here.   

Another way to add a little something to your outfit - pin to the knot of a pussybow blouse.

Just launched: Our Vintage Serpent Brooch. Circa 1980s, gold plated, enamelled and encrusted with crystals, shop this exotic adornment, here.

 

Happy pinning, lovers x

How to be glam and still give a damn

Being our first official journal for the year, we thought this would be an appropriate topic as here at L&O, we're setting our intentions on continuing to be as conscious as possible both at home, and in the way that we run this company. 

With that being said, we're firm believers in the fact that you can still be glam, even when you give a damn. So along with sharing some of our must-haves in the jewellery, beauty and homeware departments, we're celebrating a few of our muses who each champion environmentalist action in their own unique ways, all whilst looking incredibly chic in the process.
