How to man up a boutonniere? Taylor Patterson (of Fox Fodder Farm) adds suede, bark, brass, and animal feathers.
"Hydrangeas are great—they dry really well and that color blue is awesome. Using dried elements is a wise idea because they won't wilt. I've tied this together with suede, which is very cool. It makes it feel more jewelry-like."
