Styling Your Lapel
Like that of the tie, pocket square or cuff links, what you pin on your lapel speaks volumes in terms of your personal style. What appears to be trending on the style front for men, are accessories. My personal favourite style grabber is what the man is pinning onto his lapel.
” Be brave” is the style mode when it comes to creating a statement piece to your blazer, jacket or suit. Don’t be afraid to mix and match your pocket square to that of your lapel pin. The statement is on your lapel.
Pair your lapel pin with a pocket square that pronounces just as much style. Gone are the days of keeping it simple. The rule of wearing one or the other is no longer applicable. Style for the man today, encourages bringing all the essential pieces together. Be bold to wear the pocket square with the cravat, with the pin, with the brooch and with the cuff links.. it takes confidence to style it right.
Corsage/ flower lapels create that subtle yet forward style, no longer seen at weddings or formal occasions, flower lapel pins are now worn as forward statement pieces for the modern man. This style is trending with a classic old school twist, bringing back the ‘gentleman’ in the man.
Here are a few of my favourite lapel pins and pocket squares, and a how to guide to pinning your lapel pin.
