Does anyone have any words of wisdom when it comes to matching pocket squares to your outfit? I would like to try adding a pocket square to my ensamble when I wear a suit and I can seem to coordinate my outfit, but I can never seem to come up with what color pocket square I should buy for my outfits. Here are a few examples (and suggestions would be very helpful. ) 1) I have a blue suit with a light grey pinstripe/chalkstripe (it is not quite a pinstripe, but a thin chalkstripe). With it I wear a yellow and navy rep tie (the navy is the stripe) and a light blue shirt with a white color. I am not sure what color pocket square would be appropriate. I was thinking red as it is the compliment not represented in the outfit, but I feel it might make the outfit too busy. 2) Same suit as above with a pink shirt (often more casual without a tie, but a burgendy tie if I do). Suggestions? 3) A charcol grey suit with a plum turtle neck. Again a more casual outfit which I like wearing. However, for this one, I have NO idea what would match, nothing seems right, but I am sure there is some color that would work and those with more color sense may be able to help me. 4) (last one) Charcol grey suit, dark blue shirt (1-2 shades under royal blue) with a light grey tie. I was thinking maybe a dark yellow or dark grey square would go, but since I asked about the others I figured I would ask about this one was well. Thank you for your assistance, I really appriciate it.
