Style tips on the pink pocket square As it is a bold look for many, not everyone can pull off wearing a pink pocket square with their outfit. There are some cardinal rules to follow if you are to pull it off at all. Here are some suggestions to keep in mind when you are sporting a pink pocket square.
Finding the right patterns Plain or patterned pink pocket squares may intimidate many new wearers because of the difficulty to complement a suit or ties that they have. Plain colour styles are easier because of their simplicity to match your style. Once you feel more comfortable experimenting with patterns, make sure to choose timeless motifs such as polka dots, paisley and chevron patterns.
Do not match your tie 100% A typical mistake for the new pocket square wearer is to find a pocket squares that match perfectly to your tie. A light pink plain pocket square should not be accessorised with a light pink plain tie. That just looks like you’re going to your middle school dance formal. It is an easy mistake to make because we apply the same concepts of matching with our belts and shoes.
Style rules, unfortunately, do not follow the same laws as basic mathematics in addition and subtraction. To match a pink pocket square properly, think of complementary patterns or matching subtle colour points of the tie. If you have a navy blue tie with pink accents, it is safe to pair it with a pocket square with similar pink hues. Patterned pink pocket squares can fare really well with a plain pink tie because the patterns offset the matching of the colours. Think in terms of the leather seats in your car, you wouldn’t get leather seats that are the exact match in colour to the exterior of your car; so the same concept applies to pocket squares.
Always make sure they are clean The ultimate reason for a pocket square is to be a perfect finishing touch to a sharp outfit. Having an unclean pocket square will ruin that professional impression you are trying to carry so quickly, you won’t have time to notice what happened. Carry spares if you have to in your back pocket to make sure you always have a clean pocket square to be featured in your breast pocket.
Learn the art of the fold Pocket squares are not meant to be folded like origami. They should look pristine, but they can also look effortless or casual. Over-styled and folds that are over-pressed do not allow the visual disruption to the contours of your suit. The lines in your suit are what makes you look sharp to the onlooker but the fun, lightly folded style of your pocket square is what makes your suit pop. It completes a timeless ensemble by adding movement and form to an otherwise plain and mundane outfit.
