Playing around with a few options:

Don't like. Is that linen? I hate colored/patterned squares folded in the pocket.

Cream silk is a true OneSquare.

I have dozens of squares and used to pride myself on wearing a different one each day. I find that a bit less than classy now, and have been wearing a white one every day for a year or so. i think I'm going to stick with this. Its very elegant, simple to do, and white goes with everything.

I don't like cream as much, but I could get behind that as well if I wore more earth tones.

+1. I find myself wearing white much more often than just half a year ago.

The "all-in-one" squares were big in the past:



Personally, I just buy patterned squares with a lot of colors. Same effect, no folding required.


I love mine as well!:

I really like the OPs PS but not with the fall/winter fabrics he is showing. I would like it with linen, khaki or a summer BB for the best effect. I think fall/winter clothing requires a different approach and his square is too spring/summer for my tastes.

I have a plaid square that I wear folded a lot during the warmer months. It has an almost madras effect which seems right when it's 85 degrees outside.

I can't stand solid cream silk squares. They seem like something you find in a limo after a senior prom. Silk needs color and pattern. If you want plain, stick to white linen, the only true OneSquareÂ
