Bring Back The Dress Clip!
A dress clip is a brooch that uses a hinged clip or two-pronged pin to fasten on to clothing. They were super popular between the 1920s and 1940s because they are extremely versatile. You can clip them to a belt, hat, pocket or cuff. You can use them to gather up fabric and alter the shape of your neckline. You can clip them to a ribbon to create a statement necklace. And you can attach them to furs or heavy fabrics without making a permanent hole.
Nowadays, folks don’t even realize what they are, which means you can usually pick these babies up for cheap on eBay.
