I have a formal occasion this coming Saturday. I'm wearing a maroon formal gown with black accents, and tasteful classic rhinestone jewelry.
My husband will be in a black suit, with a maroon shirt that closely matches my dress. His shirt has a slight texture to it so it doesn't look like we rented our costumes from "Prom Nights R Us."
The intention was to get a black tie, satin and non-patterned, and a plain silk pocket square that matches the shirt.
I'm reading, however, the inadvisability of matching the pocket square too closely to the tie most specifically. Does this also apply when matching to the shirt instead? Since the shirt has a slight pattern, would a non-patterned silk pocket square in the same color count towards mixing-up the textures as suggested on websites I've seen?
And what, today, is considered the "in" way to wear the handkerchief? 4 points up? 2 points? 1 point? Straight?
