These lapel pins are used to accent or give the final touch to an already stylish outfit. The flowers are embellished with bead and button centers, and some can be attached to the jacket lapel with the button on the back.

Wims and Co. designs have been created to carry the legacy of simple but stylish and chic accessories.
