Pocket square by the Fashion Guru
Pocket squares shouldn't just be reserved for weddings and other formal occasions. A pocket square is a fantastic way of getting another look out of your fine, designer shirts. Pocket squares are just a simple accessory that allow you to completely re-brand your shirt and create a whole new stylish outfit. By following our top tips below, you're sure to find a new look that suits your style and maximize your shirt's potential.

Tip 1 - Go for the Hipster look

A casual jacket worn over the top of a smart designer shirt is an understated look that is sure to up your style credentials. To polish this look off, and make it look refined and stylish, try a contrasting color tie and pocket square. The pocket square and the tie shouldn't match, but share the same co lour family. For example, a paisley print tie and striped pocket square in the same co lour hues looks perfect. To polish your look off, team it with a skinny jean and desert boots.

Tip 2 - Smarten up your smart casual

A great way to liven up a smart casual outfit is by incorporating a stunning pocket square. For this look, forget the tie, instead choosing a colorful pocket tie against a clean white or pale shirt and blue suit. Pinks and purples look really great here. A smart evening brogue and charming colorful pocket will more than make up for your lack of neck wear. This is a look that really allows your crisp shirt to sing.

Tip 3 - Speakeasy style

Nothing creates a vintage, dandy look quite like the clever combination of cravat and pocket square. A designer shirt is an absolute must for this look, ideally with a wing collar for a really classy finish. This look is so elegant when wearing a light blue shirt and grey suit. You can choose a subtler look by choosing a cravat and pocket square in shades of soft blue and grey or, alternatively, choose a co lour that stands out to let the class of your shirt sing. Red checks and yellow patterns are great for this. The end look is a truly chic, stylish outfit that screams high fashion.

Recommended Shirt: Franck Michel Dress Shirt for Men in Riviera Blue.
Recommended Pocket Square Fold: Three Stairs Pocket Square Fold
