It is not easy to find the right suit. Suits are designed for men of many shapes and sizes, so it's important to know how one should be fitted. Every man has his own body shape, which means that he will need a different style of suit to look good in it. For example, if you have an athletic build with broad shoulders and narrow hips then you'll want a slim fit or regular fit jacket that gives you more room in the shoulder area but tapers at your waistline for a more tailored appearance. If you are on the heavier side with broad shoulders but narrower hips, then go for a larger size jacket as well as trousers with no break (so they don't bunch up) or a slight break (about 1 inch above the shoe).

Once you have found the right suit, it is important to know how to wear it well. One of the most important aspects of looking sharp in a suit is wearing a properly-fitted shirt and tie. You also want to make sure that your accessories are on point, including your lapel flower.

A lapel flower, or boutonniere, is a small flower or other decoration that is worn on the lapel of a suit jacket. They have often been worn at weddings and prom but can be worn for other formal occasions as well. There are many different ways to make a lapel flower, but we will outline a few easy ways so that anyone can do it.

What Is A Lapel Flower / Boutonnière?

The boutonniere or lapel flower is a common accessory worn with formal attire. It is most often seen at weddings but can also be worn with other outfits for more formal occasions. There are many different varieties of flowers that can be used to make this type of flower, but the main thing to keep in mind is that it needs to be small. A boutonniere can range in size from 2 inches to 5 inches, so no matter what kind of flower you choose you'll want it to be smaller than your fist.

Types Of Lapel Flowers

There are many types of flowers that could be utilized for this type of flower; however, there are some specific common ones including roses, carnations, gardenias, and lilies. You can also get creative and use other small decorative items such as a baby's breath, feathers, or even a small animal figurine.

The type of lapel flower depends on the outfit you are wearing and the event you will be attending. For a more traditional look, go with a rose or carnation. If you want something more unique, try a gardenia or lily. You can also get creative with other small decorative items such as a baby's breath, feathers, or even a small animal figurine.

●  Long Stem Flowers

Long stem flowers have long, thin pins to which the flower itself is attached and are quite common. The most popular are roses, carnations, gardenias, lilies. You can also get creative with other small decorative items such as a baby's breath, feathers, or even a small animal figurine. These types of flowers are perfect for someone who wants something more traditional or classic.

The personality and status of the wearer will also determine what type of lapel flower is worn. For example, if you are wearing a formal suit to a wedding, then you might want to wear a more classic-looking long stem rose or carnation. If it's for New Year's Eve and you're going to a big party with some close friends, try wearing a buttonhole flower with feathers to match your outfit.

●  Button Flowers

Button flowers are the other main style of lapel flower. These have a button on the back that the button is used to fasten them to the jacket’s lapel. They are perfect for someone who wants something more unique and modern.

These types of flowers were first seen in the 20s and 30s, but they have been seeing a resurgence recently. They are perfect for those who want to stand out from the crowd and show their personality with their outfit.

The Equipment Required

Lapel flowers are a great way to add some style and flair to your outfit. They're small and easy to wear, and they don't require much work on your part if you know what you're doing. This process is very fast and simple, but it does take a little bit of time so be sure that you have enough time before starting this project.



●  Set-Up

First, you need to gather your materials.

  • Flowers: Any type of flower will work for this project; however, your best bet is to use a type that is small and has long stems. Roses, carnations, gardenias, and lilies are all great choices. You can also get creative and use other small decorative items like a baby's breath, feathers, or even a small animal figurine.
  • Pins: These come in different sizes depending on the size of the flower you choose. The pins should be as large as the petals for the flower itself to ensure full coverage so it stays in place.
  • Bobby Pins: These are used to attach the flower to your lapel; you can get these at any drug or beauty supply store. They come in multiple colors, so choose the one that best matches your outfit.

Finally, you'll need some basic tools like pruning shears for cutting and wire cutters for trimming. You may even want additional tools like a small paintbrush or a box to hold all of your supplies.

●  Select the Main Flower To Use

A boutonnière is an ornamental flower worn on the lapel of a man's suit or tuxedo. It was traditionally created for men to wear at formal events such as weddings and funerals, but it has expanded to be worn by many different people in different contexts. A boutonnière can be either long-stemmed or buttonhole flowers and is usually pinned to the left side of a jacket’s lapel. The most common type of flower used is roses, carnations, gardenias, lilies.

Pick a flower you like and want to use. If it has long, delicate stems then consider using a type that's short and stalky so there’s less chance that the stem will break while making it.

●  Additional Flowers

If you're using a long-stemmed flower as your main boutonnière, you can add additional flowers to it for a more decorative look. This is a great way to add some personality to your outfit and make it stand out. You can use any type of flower that you like, or even mix different types. Just be sure to keep the size of the flowers in mind so that they don't overpower the main flower.

To attach the additional flowers, use a small amount of hot glue to secure them to the main stem. Be careful not to use too much glue, or it will seep out and be visible on the front of the flower. You can also use wire or floral tape to securely attach the flowers.

●  Choose the Right Type of Pin

The type of pin you use will depend on the size and shape of the flower you choose. If the petals are large and round, then you'll need a larger pin with a thicker stem. If the petals are smaller and more delicate, then you'll need a smaller pin that won't overwhelm the flower.

Pins come in different sizes, so be sure to select the one that is the correct size for your flower. You also want to make sure that the stem of the pin is long enough so that it will go through the fabric of your jacket and into the lapel.

●  Combine The Main And Additional Flowers

After you have gathered your materials, it's time to start making the boutonnière.

●  Stem Decoration

Wrap a complementary color ribbon around the stem of the boutonnière. You can also use floral wire to create a small loop at the top of the stem so that you can easily tie on the ribbon.

If you're using hot glue to attach your flowers, be sure to put a small dot of glue at the base of the petals to hold them in place. This will help keep them from falling off or wilting over time.

●  Stem Reduction

To make the boutonnière look even more polished and professional, you can trim the stem so that it's even with the length of the pin. This will help reduce the amount of stem that's visible when you wear it. Use a small pair of wire cutters to do this, and be careful not to cut off too much of the stem.
