Day 27: Four Stairs Fold

How to Fold your pocket square with the four stairs fold
The four stairs fold is the first fold I am featuring in my “50 Folds in 50 Days series” that uses not one, but two pocket squares. It allows you to add yet another color and pattern element to your look. I prefer this fold with either two solid colored pocket squares, or with one patterned and one solid pocket square in color complementing the colors found in the pattern. Because of the added fabric from the 2nd pocket square, I prefer smaller pocket squares that are 13″ x 13″ or smaller in size. The look above was created with one solid red and one solid white pocket square in 100% silk that measure just 10″ x 10″ in size. Here is how you create this fold:
