How to wear a lapel pin

Posted on December 08, 2014 by Amelia Ebdon

Lapel pins can seem daunting. Men worry about which side they should wear one on, how to place it on their suit or where lapel pins should go. A lapel pin should be a versatile accessory to have fun with. Whether you are wearing it on a jumper, through the button of your overcoat or on a suit jacket for a formal occasion, the lapel pin is something to make your own. 

You can play with angles, positions, placements and styles without feeling like you are breaking any divine codes of menswear. The lapel pin is set to be a big trend this year so test out a few variations to see which you feel most comfortable with. 

Alice Made This has a collection of lapel pins of all sizes, styles and materials.

THE JUMPER

The more casual man can wear lapel pins too. Team with a chunky jumper and pick a co-ordinating metal.

THE OVERCOAT

Pinned through the buttonhole, onto the lapel or on the pocket, lapel pins are a great way to accessorise for summer.

THE WORK SUIT

Everyone wants to feel smart and confident on their way to the office. A polished lapel pin, placed on the lapel or through a tie, is the key to surviving that calendar of meetings in style.

THE CASUAL BLAZER

Summer brunches, lunches or bbqs. Whatever the occasion, a casual blazer with a lapel pin in light summery shades will do the trick.

THE FORMAL SUIT

Sometimes a man needs to dress up. For those moments when only the best will do, try a lapel pin in a rich copper, rose or yellow gold.
