Mens Accessories: The Pocket Square
As gentleman we need to start realising the importance of accessories and focusing on the finer details to our looks. It’s time to admit that women accessorise a lot better than us, and we need to catch up. Today we’re going to be talking about a formal accessory which can really transform a look, and that is of course the pocket square. Style starts with looking elegant, and creating individuality through finer detailing. The pocket square helps achieve this, as implementing a pocket square can add a touch of detailing your look may be screaming out for.
How To Wear A Pocket Square
There’s a variety of ways to wear a pocket square, and there’s two key elements. Firstly it’s how you fold the pocket square. There’s a variety of different folds which add something different to your look. For example a square fold will be more tailored, it’s more suited towards tailored formal looks. A puff fold is more casual, and can be implemented into casual, laid back looks. Here’s a video highlighting some of the key folds:
What Pocket Square?
As with all accessories, you need to focus on what it’s going to bring to the look. If your look is quite neutral and needs spicing up, a pocket square with a unique print or colour will brighten up a look. On the other hand, plain colours like white, navy, and black are preferred for formal attire and can be used to blend in with a look. It’s all about deciding whether you want to create a statement with your pocket square, or use it to add a subtle touch. Prints are extremely popular this coming season so adding a printed pocket square is a great choice. If creating a statement isn’t for you go for a simple white, cotton pocket square which can be used for formal outings.
