How, Where and When to Wear a Lapel Pin
Wearing a suit for an upcoming special occasion? Perhaps your career requires you to wear one everyday. Whilst wearing a suit can give a styled and refined look, it can make it difficult to stand out from a crowd of suit wearers. The good news is, a lapel pin is taking the men’s fashion world by storm. Lapel pins are a great way to express personality while also maintaining a professional style. A lapel pin can take your suit game to the next level, no matter the event. Never worn a lapel pin before? It’s never too late to start!
A Lapel Pin for All Occasions
Update your day-to-day wear and set yourself apart at business meetings and interviews by having a conversion piece.
Everyone knows first dates can be a bit awkward. Break the ice in those potentially awkward first few minutes by wearing a conversation piece. Once you have complimented them on how they look, chances are, they will comment on your pin and away you go!
Stand out in the crowd and have a distinguishing feature people will talk to you (and each other) about. Taking your suit game to the next level will keep you looking sharp and inspire others to do the same. You’ll be a trendsetter amongst your peers.
Sometimes you may just be bored with your go-to outfit. Change things up and make a statement. Pick a pin to match your outfit or occasion or choose a pin to add a splash of color or show a hobby or interest.
How to Wear Your Lapel Pin
We’ve discussed the where and when, but how do you wear a lapel pin to really make a statement?
On a suit, without a tie
Men’s style has evolved in recent years to include less ties. A lapel pin lets you stand out from all the other grey and navy suits in the room by adding extra color or a conversation piece.
On a suit with a tie
If you still wear a tie regularly, compliment your style and design of tie with a pin to make it ‘pop’. A lapel pin looks fabulous with a 3-piece suit too.
On a sports coat / blazer
The standard business-casual uniform for the modern man is jeans or slacks with a sports jacket. Choose a lapel pin to separate yourself from the crowd.
In other places
If you’re not wearing a blazer you can still take your pin with you to make a statement. Pins look great on bags and hats, just be sure to pick the right pin to match in with your outfit and occasion.
Make Your Statement
Whether you’re going to a wedding, gala or just to work, a lapel pin will give your outfit a facelift. It’s a great way to start conversations and make you stand out from the crowd.
