The pocket square is a mostly underrated accessory. It seems small and unremarkable – but using the right technique it will literally unfold a great effect. If you are still searching for your favorite fold or looking for new inspiration, following four inspirations for an appearance in style.
1) The strait fold
The classic and easiest fold. It is a perfect option for a man’s daily business and works best with a modest and single-coloured fabric. It is a great match for dark suits or optionally for pinstripe suits.
2) The one point fold
The small envelope-shaped pocket square in a striped design offers an interesting look. However a plain design is also a suitable option. A long-lasting hold is guaranteed if the cloth is folded such as it completely fills the width of the suit’s breast pocket.
3) The two point fold
The double folded tip adds a nice touch to any formal occasion. Light or even discreetly patterned pocket squares offer a great effect with this technique. However stripes should be avoided since they add a rather restless element to your look.
4) The three point fold
This fold literally tops things off. It might seem too elegant for a usual business day. Much better does it fit to a special occasion – in the evening a white, cream or silver cloth provides a noble touch to any suit, for a bit of extravagance during the day (for example at a wedding) a dominant color adds the illusion of a flower.
The pocket square gives any suit an upgrade with only a few simple steps. It is time to get that dusty pocket square back out of the closet and fold it in style. If you don’t have anything in your closet yet, you might make a find with one of CARPASUS’ sustainable and fairly produced pochettes.
