H&M Dark Green Silk Handkerchief

Here at FashionBeans we love our accessories, especially those that help put a unique and individual stamp on your outfit. I’ve got a friends 21st birthday coming up next weekend – a smarter affair than I’m used to as a student – so the blazer is coming out.

I thought a new pocket square would be the finishing touch that would help subtly separate my look from the crowd, so I went about trying to find an affordable version from one of the high street giants.

After browsing through the usual high street retailers, I came across a rather smart hanky in the depths of H&M.

Dark green with an on trend geometric pattern, I’m positive it’s going to look killer stuffed in the top pocket of my black blazer. Made from 100% silk, it measures 31 x 31 cm and is top quality for the price – just £7.99.

My favourite pocket square fold is a really simple one called the ‘puff’ and has four steps (see video demonstration below):

  • Lay the pocket square on a flat surface.
  • Pinch the centre and pick it up.
  • Slide the pocket square through your other hand.
  • Fold over so the middle meets the corners.

Now you can stuff it into your breast pocket and fiddle around until it looks even and neat. Not bad, even if I do say so myself.

Available now over at H&M.

Looking good isn’t important, it’s everything.
