Lapel pins are a great way to add a little bit of extra flair to any outfit. You can also use lapel pins to promote a cause you care about or show your support for an organization. There are a few different ways to style a lapel pin – here’s how to add this chic accessory to your outfit.
Accessorize your suit with a pin on your left lapel
Lapel pins look great with a traditional suit. For this look, add your lapel pin to the left side of your lapel above the pocket square. Most suits have a buttonhole here where you can place the lapel. If your suit doesn’t have a buttonhole, you can still apply the pin here – just make sure to remove it carefully to prevent damage to the fabric. Make sure the pin sits at the same angle as your lapel – if the angle is off, it can look a little haphazard.
Add a pop of color using lapel pins
Lapel pins are a great way to add a fun pop of color to your outfit, particularly if you normally wear neutrals. A bright color immediately livens up any look while making you look a little more sophisticated. Be careful with colors here – ideally, your lapel pin should be a nice contrast to your jacket so the colors show up. If you’re wearing a particularly bold pin, wear a solid color shirt so the look isn’t too overwhelming.
Consider two lapel pins
If you really want to spice up an outfit, consider wearing two pins! It adds texture to the look, which makes your entire outfit come across as trendy and sophisticated. Your lapel pins can contrast each other, but they should tie in with other aspects of your outfit for some cohesion.
