The Art of Pocket Squares
No rules apply when it comes to choosing and wearing your pocket square but keep in mind it is an art and a statement of your personal style. If you are wondering how to choose the best puff to wear as long as it complements your shirt and tie you are good to go. Don't worry about matching and go with what looks and feels good.
Yes, the hankie is where this whole endeavor started, well technically it was with the wealthiest Greeks but still you want to make sure you are following the pocket square rules. Your puff is not a hankie so don't blow your nose on it. Never, ever stuff anything that was near your nose into your breast pocket and expect to be cool. Don't be afraid to spend a little extra time folding your pocket square in order to get the perfect fold and look. If your pocket is bulging then it's time to refold and make sure you keep an eye on it throughout the day.
Your pocket square can literally be any colour or pattern you like and sticking to a general guideline of complementing your suit is the best way to ensure you don't look like you've been smoking out of a pipe. If your tie has a bit of blue in it go with a solid color puff in a blue hue that matches yet still just compliments your style. Never match your tie and puff perfectly as it will look like you are trying much too hard to rock the style.
