Whether neatly folded or boldly tucked into your breast pocket, the times are long gone when a pocket square was almost only worn in business or on formal occasions. Also called a pocket handkerchief, the small accessory has become a trendy eye-catcher that can be tastefully combined with other styles from elegant to casual at any time of the day or year with a vest from DORNSCHILD.
The size of the pocket square should also be chosen depending on the breast pocket. The most common sizes are 20 × 20 cm or 40 × 40 cm. Pocket squares that are too big leave an unsightly bulge in the pocket. In any case, DORNSCHILD always offers a matching pocket square that is 20 × 20 cm in size for free with every vest.
You can experiment with the choice of colors and patterns, but generally, the pocket square should never be the same color as the outer fabric. You should also never use the fashion accessory as a handkerchief. Ideally, the colors and patterns match the vest and/or outerwear itself and create a unique contrast.
If you want to combine the handkerchief with a tie or bow tie, you should resist the temptation to wear both of the same fabric. A good rule of thumb here is that an identical and common color can be found in both accessories.
