Why You Should Add a Pocket Square to Your Outfit


Whether you have an upcoming wedding, an interview, or a date, whatever the formal occasion finishing off your outfit with a stylish pocket square to compliment your beautiful handmade tie and the rest of your outfit can set you apart from the crowd.

When considering what is the point of wearing a pocket square in your jacket pocket, really there is none what-so-ever. It’s purely for sartorial style, it’s a finishing point to your best formal attire. It is almost gloriously pointless, but it can make a world of difference.

It is not a handkerchief. Keep that in your pants pocket, and never use your pocket square for blowing your nose!

Simple detailing with a fitted tailored suit need not break the bank. Men are much more in-tune with how they present themselves, and much more comfortable with experimenting with their style. Much like choosing a tie, a pocket square can be as conservative or as flamboyant as you’d desire, as well as making a mark on your individuality.

To aim for a more conservative look, go for a pocket square a couple of shades lighter than your jacket, a simple pattern, such as polka dot, will add a contrasting highlight to your attire. But do not shy away from adding some sartorial flair to your outfit. The resurgence in pocket squares means there are many different style, colours, and patterns to create a striking appearance.
