If the clues from my last post led you to the answer of pocket squares, you are absolutely correct! These dandy little accessories are often ignored because they are thought of as old-fashioned, too formal for every day office wear, or just plain perplexing with the myriad of folding styles. I disagree and am a fan of pocket squares because they really allow for some creative suiting options. Adding a pocket square to your suit instantly adds a dash of suave and worldly know-how à la Don Draper. I generally hold the same rules for pairing dress shirts and ties with picking out pocket squares. A solid white square is classic and pairs with every tie and shirt combination. A square that embraces the same family of colours is an easy way to explore patterned and coloured squares. As for different folding techniques, yes, there are indeed a lot of different folds, but a simple google search will bring up many tutorials and videos that walk you through the steps, fold by fold. Today, I will share with you 3 of the more commonly known folds.
