Mens Pocket Squares
Formal vs. Casual Pocket Squares
Pocket squares make an excellent accessory when dressed in suit and tie. They set nice contrast and are a perfect clothing item to add more color, contrast, and individuality. Experts differentiate between two different types of pocket squares: formal pocket squares and casual pocket squares. For the most part, formal pocket squares are solid in color and are typically white, cream, or ivory. They are a perfect accessory for black tie dress code or avant-garde business look. Pocket squares displaying more patterns and colors are less formal and perfect accessory for a sophisticated ensemble. These pocket squares not only look excellent with 2, or 3-piece suit, but also with sports coats and blazer jackets.
Matching Pocket Squares
The pocket square color has to match and harmonize the other clothing pieces while still setting a contrast to the jacket. Because many men want a pocket square that matches their necktie or bow tie, we at Mens-Ties.com carry many of our pocket squares also as matching neckties or bow ties.
Although many men want to match the pocket square color to their tie it is not a requirement by any means. In fact, knowing how to pair different colors and different patterns of pocket squares to shirt, suit, and tie shows individuality and an understanding of fashion and style.
