Figuring out how to coordinate a pocket square can be difficult at first, and it’s OK just to stick with white linen when in doubt.  But another option is to choose something that picks up a minor color in the suit, shirt, or tie.  Here I folded this square with the red edge showing to pick up the red check in the shirt and the dark red windowpane in the suit.

Suit: Oxxford, consignment store, $60

Shirt: Brooks Brothers, thrifted, $5

Tie: BG&C, clearance, $15

Pocket Square: Stein Mart, $10

Shoes: Florsheim, thrifted, $8

Total: $98

If I’d paid retail prices: Over $4000.
