Liven Up Your Formal Look With 5 Pocket Squares

My memorial day was spent as a luxe wedding in the Swiss city of Geneva. The four day, five event weekend required heavy packing in the way of formal wear – from suiting to tuxedo – and even more so in the way of accessories to compliment and keep each look unique. Pocket squares offer simple and effective way in highlighting your looks and do not need to remain limited to solid colors. With that in mind, we offer up this 5 handkerchief array of options in cotton, silk and linen in varying patterns and textures to keep you looking proper.
