Four ways to wear a pocket square

Four ways to wear a pocket square

Yes, a pocket square goes in a pocket. But which pocket?

1. In your back pocket.

Replace that ratty old handkerchief with a pocket square. Choose a bright or high contrast pocket square to tuck into your darkest pair of denim.

2. In your jean jacket pocket.

This is the perfect combination of form and function. With a nod to the traditional way of wearing a pocket square in a blazer jacket, this approach works best with an Americana-style square.

3. With a chambray shirt

If you're not quite ready to pair a pocket square with a jean jacket (please don't say it's because you DON'T have a jean jacket), then try out this pairing.  Works especially well to add a pop of color when wearing denim on denim.

4. In your blazer or dress shirt

The old standby.  If you'd like to spruce it up a bit, try ditching the blazer and popping a pocket square in your dress shirt pocket instead.
