- Choose a secondary colour from your shirt or tie as the primary colour for your pocket square.

Should your pocket square match your tie?
Matching A Tie And Pocket Square
Although it might seem like an easy way to coordinate your outfit, matching your pocket square and tie or bow tie is a definite no-no. Instead, the pocket square should complement the rest of your look: either by harmonising or contrasting with your other accessories.
Do men still wear pocket squares?
In all reality, most men don’t wear pocket squares because they truly don’t know it is an option, they don’t know where you get them or even how you fold them to make them work. This is why most haven’t even considered them as part of their suit/jacket arsenal. Some might fear that it may draw attention to you.
What is the purpose of a pocket square?
Less simply put: you use a handkerchief to blow your nose, mop up spills, or even just to dab the sweat off your brow. A pocket square’s function is style – it can be used to express your creativity, to create a dapper 1920s feel, or simply to add a pop of color to an otherwise drab suit.
