By the time the big day arrives, there are a few menswear-related tasks that you should master, from pinning a boutonnière to successfully knotting a tie. Another skill to practice? Folding a pocket square. And while the process is arguably less complicated than looping a bow tie, there are several ways to arrange these colorful textiles—which is why you should test out a bunch before choosing your preferred style. Ahead, four different ways, including the winged puff, three point, one point, and flat methods, to fold a pocket square for your groom or groomsmen.

Winged Puff

1. Lay the pocket square flat so it resembles a diamond.

2. Fold the top corner down to the bottom corner.

3. Fold the right and left corners in to the bottom corner, making a smaller diamond.

4. Fold the left, right, and bottom corners of the diamond in to the center.

5. Tuck into pocket with the unfolded corner facing out (see above).
