1. Bow Tie Lapel Pin
If you love the look of a bow tie, but hate the effort that comes with it, then this is your middle ground. A bow tie lapel pin will have you looking just as dashing with zero effort and without feeling all buttoned up. Rock this pin with a crisp white shirt and your best jacket, and you'll be totally swoon-worthy no matter what the function!
2. Floral Lapel Pin
This floral lapel pin is just what your jacket needs to up the ante on your look. It’s the perfect, understated accessory to that adds a slight quirk and charm to your look—provided you’re wearing it to a function where Indo-Western attire is required.
3. Fern Lapel Pin
If you’re looking to turn over a new leaf with your suiting style, fern lapel pins are a great place to start. This one’s the perfect choice for guys who aren't into big flowers or dainty silk pins.
4. Fleur-De-Lis Lapel Pin
This is a style of lapel pins that’s trending on the runway and is quite a popular choice among menswear designers. So if you’re aspiring to pull off a look like your fav celeb, we highly recommend this accessory to complete your look.
5. Cute Illustration Lapel Pin
While lapel pins were initially designed to lend a chic and elegant look, men’s fashion has come a long way since then. Today we have a lot of cutesy lapel pin options that you can pair with your casual outfits and jackets too. These come in a number of different colours and patterns so you can look trendy while also having some fun along the way.
6. Jewelled Lapel Pin
This gothic-looking jewelled pin is a little pricier than most others, but it's totally worth the spend. The crystal and jewel detail is beyond elegant and perfect for making any blazer look both edgy and upscale. Unlike some more trendy lapel pins, this is one will never go out of fashion…so it’s an investment, really!
7. Gold Plated Anchor Lapel Pin
Anchors are such a popular design, be it in jewellery, tattoos or clothing. So it’s no surprise that it makes for such an edgy lapel pin. The best part about this is that it’s extremely versatile and can be paired with any kind of jacket…be it formal or cas’.
8. Tie Lapel Pin
If you have an uncharacterised affection towards ties, here’s a great way to show some of that love through your lapel pin. Tie lapel pins make a smart, chic, yet somewhat adorable addition to your elegant attire. And because they’re so appealing without being OTT, they work perfectly for almost every occasion.
No matter the occasion, lapel pins are a great way to spice up your jackets. Choose to experiment with a bold, catchy pin or play it safe with a simple, elegant one…it’s totally up to you.
