So, I've been doing some studying up on pocket squares and the appropriate ways to incorporate them into one's attire. So, here is my first attempt. I have an upcoming function that I'd like to be my first foray into the PS world.
Here is the ensemble:
Shirt: Either White or Light Blue French Cuff (can't decide if blue is too much color with everything else)
Tie: Pink Paisley Bow Tie
PS: Light Blue Paisley?
Cuff Links: I have pink/white and blue/white silk knots or basic silver metal type.
Shoes: (Dark) Burgundy
My thought process is that the sky blue of the PS is complementary to the navy suit and the paisley pattern matches the bow tie paisley (which I think is acceptable, not positive). Further, would a light blue shirt be too much blue? I'm leaning toward a white shirt for that reason. Finally, I was thinking of going with the pink/white silk knot cuff links to incorporate with the tie.
A couple variations I've been toying with include:
- Solid sky blue PS
- Paisley or Solid Burgundy PS
- Paisley or Solid pale green PS
- Paisley or Solid pale yellow PS
Again, this is my first attempt at sporting a PS, so feel free to call me a fool. Looking to learn and hopefully look good. Thanks in advance for your assistance.
