The look is subtle and clean, but still unexpected and unique on women. My favorite is the straight fold, which leaves just a straight sliver of fabric peeking out of the blazer breast pocket. White cotton is the most versatile, but my current favorite pocket square of my collection is silk burgundy with white polka-dots.

But as I’ve learned as late, most women’s blazers are not properly equipped to easily fit a pocket square in the breast pocket. Creative folding and smooshing has been required to get my pocket squares to fit these tiny pockets, which is making my recent foray into the world of boy’s blazers all that more fantastic. I wish womenswear designers would make those pockets more functional!
