Pocket square- what is it?
The pocket squares are men's accessories in the form of squares, which are inserted into the pockets of jackets. Pocket square is most often made of silk, linen or cotton. This accessory gives an individual character, makes it easier to stand out from the crowd, to express its own style and individuality. Thanks to the little thing our elegant clothes can be well complemented.
How can you put down the pocket square?
Lying down the pocket square is an individual thing for every person. The main principle we should follow is the choice of clothing. If we want to wear a more formal set like suit, pocket square should not be exposed too much. It's different with the casual styles - we can indulge in the little fashion madness. In men's fashion, we can name four basic clothing styles - evening, formal, casual and smart-casual styles. Each one of them has wonderful qualities that fit the particular issues.
In formal wear, you do not go to work, and in a jacket and jeans - not to an official evening reception, where the tuxedo is required. These are self-evident, worked out and generally accepted dependencies for years. Of course every man should have at least one universal and very good suit in his wardrobe. Such a suit should be dark blue or gray. These are the most universal and safest colors to suit every person and every life event. It's worth remembering that the suit and accessories such as a white or blue shirt, good shoes, a tie, are basic things, things without which the clothes of a well-dressed gentleman are unimaginable. The supplement of the clothes is a pocket square. In formal dressings, the "TV fold" pocket square is used. In other stylizations, only our own imagination limits us. That's why you should find many solutions and a style that suits us best.
The rules are simple here. In the formal styles with a tie or bow tie, pocket square should not be made in the same color, pattern or fabric with the same texture as our tie. Pocket squares should only complement the clothes and tie on colors on the tie. In a casual styling without a tie, the cloth can tie on a garment such as the shirt, socks, the polo shirt under the jacket and even on a belt.
Here we have full arbitrariness and we can play with fashion. The gentlemen who do not know the subject well and are just starting out with fashion and accessories can start with a classic, white linen or cotton pocket square. Finally, one can emphasize that these are not fixed principles, only the guidelines of which it is worth starting. If we do that, we will certainly look good.
Overall, with the increase of fashionable consciousness and courage, we recommend experimenting and looking for your own way. Above all, fashion should satisfy our sense of aesthetics and help us to feel good.
