The wearing of a flower in one’s lapel is the least used gestures of elegance seen in modern times. They are a unique seasonal accessory that will immediately set you apart from the crowd and add a little whimsy to your wardrobe. Sure, you could go the traditional route and use a real flower, but a fabric flower will not only last longer, it can also be a conversation starter. You can make them out of just about any fabric, in any color or pattern you want.
Four of the most common formally worn flowers are the red carnation, the white carnation, the blue cornflower, and the gardenia. Other flowers that can be worn are the white azalea, miniature roses, delphinium, dasies, lily of the valley, and even statice. Install the flower into the jacket lapel and leave it alone unless it requires adjustment.
