Word of the Week: Dress Clip

Another name for a dress clip is a fur clip. One of these was simply worn on a dress to add a bit of pizzazz to the outfit. It was also attached to a fur collar, shawl, muff, or other accessory. Most of the time these had a double prong backing.

These were much more popular a few decades ago than they are today, but they’re still as classic and timeless as ever. One of my favorite websites, Illusion Jewels, has a great gallery of dress clips if you’re interested, plus a little more information on them than I’m providing here.
