The pocket square is the single most indispensable tool for defining a man of style. Truthfully there’s no particular rules for wearing one, just ensure it complements your shirt and tie, rather than matching them. I prefer to wear silk pocket squares so ‘City Life’ by Shop Blue Flamingo was a pleasure to style. The great thing about the design is that it has two distinct and versatile colour schemes, which allows you to create two completely different looks.
Formal pocket square styling
Inspired by the city, the vibrant geometric shapes really make this pocket square pop. Furthermore, the silk looks far more luxurious than cotton and is a great way to add a professional touch to your jacket. The shine and colour scheme is incredibly classy, which is ideal for adding head-turning detail to formal attire. I used the brown and gold section of the design to complement my navy Moss Bros plaid suit and match the details on the face of my Vancouver Skeleton watch by Thomas Earnshaw.
Smart casual pocket square styling
The great thing about about the City Life pocket square is its versatility. By simply folding the square in an alternative manner, you can achieve a completely different look. It’s almost like having two pocket squares in one, which is highly useful especially in the city. Leave this one in your desk drawer to class-up your suit for important meetings, or switch from green to gold as you leave work and head to the bar. I used the greens to complement my grey Moss Bros plaid suit, which works perfectly with this season’s big menswear trend; the roll neck jumper. I also added a geometric green lapel pin to further-complement the detail in the square.
To conclude, this pocket square is incredibly versatile. The distinct colour schemes allow you to create two completely different styles, while the geometric design makes it stand out from your jacket. Priced at just £35, this beautiful piece of silk is a total steal!
