Your lifestyle, your quirk
Females generally have a lot more to choose from as far as fashion goes, but things are definitely changing. Thanks to several fashion trends going on, accessories have become just as important to the males when putting together a stylish outfit. One of those stylish extra accessories for fall is the pocket square.
When it comes to fashion, sometimes it’s the smallest of accessories that can make, break, or change the look of an outfit. The pocket could be called a “necessary unnecessary” item. Of course, you are free to look at a pocket square the way you would a handkerchief, but more times than not it’s mostly for decoration.
Whether you end up actually using it, a pocket square just seems to put the finishing touches on an outfit. You don’t look unkempt or bad if you don’t wear one, but when you do, it gives your outfit something extra.
Celebrity baby-daddy Scott Disick has been sporting this item for years; I don’t think I have seen him in a jacket without one. Who knew that Scott, who often still looks a bit overdressed, would ever be called a trendsetter?
You don’t have to go to that extreme, but if you have never worn a pocket square, you should give this trend a whirl; if you usually wear one, try some of this season’s fall colors and prints.
Of course, in fashion there are no real rules, and that’s the case with this trend, but here are a few suggestions:
You want to make a statement, so there is no need to match your pocket square to your tie. Even if you buy a tie and it comes with a free matching square, just resist all temptation and mix – don’t match. You may even have to close your eyes, but the whole idea is to create a contrast and to give your suit a finished look.
If you’re not sure about when to wear a pocket square, it’s safe to say if there is a pocket on your jacket, it’s for a pocket square. An interesting idea is to add one to a sweater or denim jacket pocket and your overcoat when things get cooler.
