Little things can make or break the look of the expensive suit you intend to wear on the next wedding in the family. While you may have spent quite an amount on your tie and your shoes, a pocket square also goes a long way in taking your look in that suit to the next level. And it does not cost you as much as the tie and the shoes do.
Let’s begin with the most famous of all, the black suit. The best color that you can wear with it is white. However, you can also wear something that matches the color of your shirt. White is also great with blue suits, though you have another very stylish option here. Printed blue designs will go wonderfully well in the breast pocket of your blue suit. Bright colors like maroon and red are a good option with suits in light colors like beige and light grey.
Should I Wear A Tie With My Pocket Square?
You can either wear your coat with a pocket square and a tie or just forget about the tie, though the latter is more casual and suitable for jeans and blazers. Wearing something that matches the color of your tie is a no-no, though a lot of ties come with pocket squares that match. What you can do here is use either of them separately on different occasions and with different outfits.
What Size Should I Buy?
This fashion item comes in different sizes and you may be wondering why this should matter as you are anyway going to be folding it to form a small square. However, you also need to realize that the size will play an important role in determining the thickness of your pocket square. So, choosing the size will depend on the style in which you would want to wear your it. Medium size is the best if you intend to wear it in a neat square in the breast pocket of your navy blue suit. Larger ones may be better for something like the unfinished fold.
There is no end to the range of styles that you can experiment with. While the neat square with a thin line is one of the most common styles, the puff fold where you leave the cloth crumpled and unfolded is also very stylish. One of the most beautiful styles is the rose fold and unlike how it looks, folding your pocket square in this fashion is very easy. The unfinished fold is another stylish option you have and is great to wear to work.
Pocket squares are not the same as handkerchiefs, and a lot of them come in materials like silk and satin and look very elegant in your suit pocket. You can have a look at the range of them online from brands like Peter England, ModishEra, Chokore and various others and choose the ones that will look the best in the breast pocket of your suit or formal shirt.
