Pocket squares are an essential accessory for dapper wardrobe. They can help bring an outfit to life, help you express your style or just be fun. I personally have more pocket squares then shirts to match them because I love having fun with them and being able to do something creative with my outfit.
When your picking your pocket square to go with your outfit, it should match your shirt. When wearing a white shirt, because I like colour, I will often with use a coloured pocket square that either compliments with my bow tie or my blazer. It’s not normally seen as good practice to use matching material for your bow tie/tie and pocket square. However if you really like it and its your style, rules are sometimes meant to be bent or broken.
There are a number of pocket square folds I use regularly. A couple of these are the puff, the dunaway and a version of those two together, the pointed puff. I normally like a loud in your face fold but sometimes its good to go subtle. A couple of my go to are the 3 stairs and the 2 point fold.
The 3 Stairs it’s simple but not boring, great for a regular day at work.
The 2 point fold is another simple one to start with that allows other accessories to take the spotlight, like your bow tie! but helps make your outfit look complete. As they say… it’s all about the details.
The pointed puff is my favorite of all the folds!!! It’s punchy and will get noticed. It’s also just really fun looking, which is why its often my go to fold.
