Four Pocket Square Styles

Men’s pocket squares have long been popular amongst men with style. Currently, they’re increasing in popularity with those who are looking to find fashionable formal menswear outside the confinements of the classic shirt and tie look and looking to create a look in which their personalities are conveyed.

Pocket Square Styles

What Is A Pocket Square?

The simple addition of a folded pocket square tucked into the pocket is an easy way to transform an outfit, elevating it from average to excellent.

Descending from the handkerchief, pocket squares are stylish, being used for decorative purposes as opposed to hygienic reasons. Unlike the past where a handkerchief was a necessity, we now tend to use the more sterile option if facial tissues. But the prominent style and formality the pocket square commands still very much exists and plays a prominent role in men’s formal fashion.

How Do You Fold A Pocket Square?

The Classic Pocket Square Fold

  • Lay pocket square out flat and unfolded
  • Fold the square horizontally once to form a rectangle
  • Fold the bottom upwards to create a square
  • Fold horizontally one more time in order to duplicate the width of your pocket
  • Tuck the folded square into the pocket with edges facing up

The One Point Pocket Square Fold

  • Lay pocket square out flat and unfolded.
  • With the pocket square out diagonal (in a diamond shape), fold down the top corner to meet the opposite corner down
  • With its new triangular shape, fold the bottom left corner about two-thirds of the way.
  • Repeat the previous step with the remaining corner.
  • Tuck the last remaining flap back in.
  • Adjust the bottom of folded pocket square to ensure the size is suitable for the size of the pocket.

The Two Point Pocket Square Fold

  • Lay pocket square out flat and unfolded.
  • With the pocket square out diagonal (in a diamond shape), fold up the bottom corner to meet the top, however, make the fold slightly off centre.
  • Ensure both corners are both visible rather than being a clean fold.
  • Fold the bottom left corner across two-thirds of the way.
  • Repeat the previous step with the remaining corner
  • Tuck the last remaining flap back in
  • Adjust the bottom of folded pocket square to ensure the size is suitable for the size of the pocket.

The Winged Puff Pocket Square Fold

  • Lay pocket square out flat and unfolded.
  • With the pocket square out diagonal (in a diamond shape), fold up the bottom corner to meet the top.
  • Fold the bottom left and right corners in and up. They should meet the top point of the original triangle, resulting in a diamond shape again.
  • Pull the bottom point closest to you a little bit loose so that there is a slight gap. This will be the corner which will be on show.
  • Turn the corner around so the slightly loose corner is facing upwards and tuck the other three corners in towards the middle so that it resembles an envelope shape.
  • Tuck the square portion of the pocket square into your pocket, leaving the loose, triangular corner on show.
  • The wings of the peak can then be teased to make the final shape less pristine, this is down to personal choice.
