A lapel flower, also commonly known as a boutonniere, is a great way to add spice and flair to your ensemble, all while adding an item that is still considered relatively unique. Sure, it may be making a renaissance appearance, but I do believe it is here to stay. While a lapel flower and boutonniere are used interchangeably, there are considerable differences that set the two items apart. With that said, here is our guide to wearing a lapel flower or boutonniere.
Here are a few FAQ’s about :
What side is a boutonniere worn in?
The boutonniere is worn on the left because that’s where lapel buttonhole is. In fact, all buttonholes on men’s clothing are on the left side — buttonholes on women’s clothing are on the right side.
How do I pin it on the right way?
Since boutonnieres are typically reserved for special occasions like weddings or proms, pinning on a boutonniere is a skill that’s easy to forget. So when the time comes, you’re likely to panic and flash forward to accidentally pricking your date or yourself—but don’t worry, putting on a boutonniere isn’t as hard as it seems! Here is a pictorial representation:
What kind of outfit can I wear it with?
The the beauty of the lapel pin is that both western and traditional outfits go very well. So don’t panic it will just as good on your Sherwani as it will look on your blazer.
What colour to pick?
After you decide your outfit colour, you can either:
- Match it with your outfit.
- Go for monochrome or similar colour scheme.
- Or just be classic and wear a red.
