-I think boys would be cuter wearing a ___. (if not 'flower bracelet')

Is there a better/technical/more correct term?:

Where I come from, we call boys who wear those things "woofters".

@WBYeats,
Those are wrist corsages on the wrists of the women in the photo you posted.

You would not normally see boys/men wearing wrist corsages.

___

In a situation where girls/women are wearing corsages/wrist corsages or carrying a bouquet of flowers, you might see men wearing a boutonniere on their jacket.

@ehBeth,
We call them buttonholes in the UK.

Your word is much more romantic though.

A corsage is a small bouquet of flowers worn on a woman's dress or worn around her wrist to a formal occasion, traditionally purchased by the woman's date. Corsages are now most commonly seen at prom or similar events. Sometimes incorrectly called corsages, flowers worn by men are traditionally known as buttonholes or boutonnieres.
