Fashion on the Field is about individuality, class and style. Your personality should always shine through. By accessorising with bags, jewellery and other statement pieces you can add your own spin to any outfit. Ladies it’s time to dust of your Nanna’s brooches next time you are heading to an event, special dinner or day at the track.

Brooches are something I like to wear and have recently started collecting. They make a pretty wall hanging and can brighten up your bedroom. Here are some of my favourite race outfits featuring complimenting brooches.

This cute little silver horse brooch was an Ebay purchase and is my go-to accessory for most of my outfits.

Adorn a jacket collar with a set of scatter pins or keep your cape together with an oversized embellishment. They look great bunched together on a belt or you can even pop them in your hair for a retro glam look. Brooches gives you the best of both worlds, they are functional and decorative all in one sparkly little package.

Brooches have been all over catwalks in the past few years, found riding the lapels at Chanel, piercing heavy tweeds at Balenciaga, scattered around collars at Dolce & Gabbana and clipped onto heels at Céline.

These bygone ornaments are back in a big way and can add a vintage twist to any modern ensemble or stand out as a showpiece on a staple wardrobe item. Use a makeup sponge, pictured by Glamourai, to keep your brooch from pulling on the fabric they are pinned to. It also helps keep heavy brooches straight. GENIUS!

The way you style your brooches is limited only by your creativity (and budget). Once you have a cute little collection you can store them on a corkboard covered with fabric or on an embroidery hoop. Hang it on your wall for an art feature that will evolve the more you add to it.

We’ve found some affordable pieces to get you thinking about how to incorporate them in your next outfit. Browsing through the infinite range of designs is half the fun but be warned, it’s addictive!
