How to wear a gold pocket squareA pocket square can be added to a suit-and-tie outfit, although some men prefer to be more relaxed, and go tieless while still sporting the pocket square. If you do wear a necktie or bowtie when using a pocket square, it doesn't necessarily mean you have to match prints, but it still does mean that you should make the pocket square complement the rest of your outfit.
Making your tie and pocket square match exactly isn't recommended unless you're going to a black tie event such as a wedding. Even then, there are some fashion experts out there who suggest you mismatch your fabrics.
Make a statement with fabricGold is a luxurious colour, and the texture of golden fabrics reminds you of a shimmery, silky fabric. This is something you'll probably want to show off to the world. With plain cotton fabrics, you'll want to use it as you would a white pocket square: in a neat, orderly fashion. Clean straight folds, and a parallel line of fabric peeking out of your pocket. On the other hand, shiny smoother fabrics have the ability to shape to the size of your chest pocket. The pocket square fold might move inside of the chest pocket, which is why there are other types of folds which you can use to avoid looking untidy.
Different foldsA gold pocket square can be tucked in the single crown, or triple crown fold. These types of folds are on the neater side of things. The pinch of the pouffe is a purposefully clumsy way to be a little bit more dramatic with your fold. This fold is perfect for men who are willing to take risks, or to show off the gold details in the hem of the fabric.
Different fabrics printsGold and brown in a paisley print is a very subtle combination that imitates royalty, and both colors stay in the same colour family. The same happens with beige and golden combinations, where the shades compliment each other. Blue and gold striped or mini patterned fabrics are a fantastic way to make a bold fashion statement while making blue stand out from a shirt.
The final touchesWe know by now that making your outfit items complement each other is achieved through driving attention to the little details that match. Making your pocket square gold in an outfit with a gold watch and a gold tie clip is a win-win.
