Carnation buttonholes


Carnations (Dianthus caryophyllus), of which there are many varieties and colours can brighten a dull day or evening. For city suits and dinner jackets, the deep maroon (as in top left and bottom right of the photograph), is ideal. For morning and full evening dress, the gardenia (already mentioned) is perfect.
