For most men, the only time they feel it is acceptable to don on a lapel flower is during white or black collar events, like weddings, proms, or opening night. However, we’ve seen this mindset slowly diminishing as more and more men are comfortable in displaying their unique individualism.
There is no right or wrong time to pull out this fantastic accessory. In fact, it is as popular a choice for casual looks as it is for formal attire. Lapel flowers are an ideal addition to a suit to enhance the outfit. From the office to date night, don’t be afraid to show off the right lapel flower.
2. It is the perfect way to spruce up your outfit
Admittedly so, lapel flowers and button pins seem like a minor accessory. However, when worn and displayed correctly, it will do wonders to transform your outfit. Make sure you choose wisely. Style experts offer the following tips:
• The trick with accessorizing is focusing on the “less is more” rule. With the addition of too many metals, you’re risking an unfashionable clash.
• Understand how accessories complement each other. Our personal choice is the perfect combination of a lapel flower with a complementary, NOT matching, pocket square and tie. Anything more than that should be chosen carefully for fear of over accessorizing.
• Don’t limit your lapel flowers to coats; try them on with shirts for a more casual look
