What are Pocket Squares?
A pocket square resembles a handkerchief in many ways, but unlike the latter that’s bundled and kept in the pockets of the trousers, a pocket square is kept in the breast pocket. While the idea was to initially have a more sanitary option to handkerchiefs, pocket squares soon became an emblem of style, adding a pop of colour and a touch of silk or satin to the tux. Also, because the material is usually silk/satin, pocket squares are not meant to be used like regular handkerchiefs.
Often considered a must-have accessory for formal looks, pocket squares have come a long way and are now treated as a means to make the look more appealing. When wearing a suit or tux in black, adding a pocket square allows you to add an element of colour, which can enhance the look and break the monotony of the suit colour. A collection of pocket squares makes you ready for any ‘black tie’ event.
How do you wear a pocket square?
Pocket squares should ideally complement your shirt and tie, usually in a colour that works with these accessories. If you are going for a formal event, choose a conservative fold, or flashy folds are just as suitable for other occasions. You should not add your pocket square to your shirt or overcoat, but only with a jacket or suit.
Should your pocket square match a shirt or tie
There is no persistent rule for choosing pocket squares. While it is common to match the pocket square with your tie or shirt, it is not some mandatory fashion advice that you need to follow. At times, a pocket square can become an element in itself, especially for casual occasions, not matching with anything at all. If you wish to play safe, choose a secondary colour from your tie or shirt and create that more put-together look.
