Lapel pins have made a strong comeback. As versatile accessories, they are designed to give your outfit an elegance perfect for any occasion. Want to stir up your style? Style is all about the details, and a lapel pin is sure to add to your look.

But how do you wear a lapel pin? Figuring how to wear a lapel pin can be somewhat challenging, though if done right, it will offer class to any outfit. Whether it’s your first time wearing a lapel pin or you wear them often, here is everything you need to know on how to wear a lapel pin.

What’s A Lapel Pin?
Before we dive into the different ways of earing and stylish lapel pins, let's first understand what they are. Lapel pins are small pins worn on the lapel of a jacket or coat. They are designed to be stylish, coming in different sizes, shapes, and colors.

How To Wear a Lapel Pin!
How to wear a lapel pin shouldn't be a hassle. Here are some easy-to-follow steps to ensure that your pin adds that certain flair to your outfit.

Decide on Placement!
Position your pin on the left lapel a little above the pocket square. Unscrew the backings, and place them somewhere safe. Attach the needle of your pin through the buttonhole on your coat’s lapel. The pin’s face should appear outward-facing forward and the needle on the backside of your lapel.

Pierce the Pin Through the Fabric!
If your coat is designed without a buttonhole, you can gently pierce your lapel pin through the fabric at an angle similar to your lapel.

This is mostly necessary when pinning long-stem pins as the needle is fastened on the front side. If you are worried that this may damage your coat, a tailor can sew a subtle thread onto the lapel’s back to securely hold the lapel pins, without piercing the fabric.

Place a Stickpin With the Needle on the Front!
For a stickpin, you should aim a spot on your lapel’s back where the thin needle will penetrate. You can then aim the spot and pierce the needle through the fabric to the front side.

Always be sure that the pin maintains your lapel’s angle. Then tightly fasten the stickpin’s backing. Having the pin sticking out of the front gives a modern vibe. However, if you prefer a conservative look instead, you’ll have to leave the pin’s needle on the backside of your lapel.

Attach The Backing!
Screw the backing of your pin on to the needle and secure your pin. Ensure that the backing is well hidden by your lapel’s front. Magnetic clasps are the best if you don’t want to pierce through your coat’s fabric. No matter the backing, you will need to adjust the pin so that it’s at the same angle as your lapel.

Lapel Pins for Every Occasion!
Lapel pins are perfect for any occasion. Since you will find a lapel pin for any occasion, make sure that you choose one that suits you well.

The Everyday Pin!
You don't wear a lapel pin only on special occasions. Every day calls for your best look, no matter if you’re at the office or enjoying some night drinks with friends.

A lapel pin can add style to your look. Subtle pins, such as the long-stem, will add to your style, offering a little extra while performing your daily office routine.

Business Occasions!
Corporations and other businesses will use lapel pins to designate achievements or affiliation to a membership. Wear your custom pin during that business function and stand-out from the crowd.

The type of lapel pin you choose for a wedding will mostly depend on its level of formality. In most weddings, floral or metallic lapel pin will be the best choice. Modern-day boutonnières blend well with decorative flowers, making it a great option as well.

Formal Events!
Formal events create the perfect opportunity to wear your lapel pin. For formal events, ensure that you have selected the right lapel pin to wear on your dapper tuxedo. An enamel pin or badge will be perfect for a corporate event.
