The Winged Puff Fold is another of the folds that could be described as a classic and works beautifully for either the work environment or more formal occasions.
Because of this, we prefer to wear this fold with a similar colour to the jacket, so either light on light, or dark on dark.
Start by laying out your pocket square in a diamond shape in front of you, then taking the top corner fold in down on top of the bottom corner.
Next, take the top right-hand corner and also fold it down onto the bottom corner.
Next, repeat the same step with the top left-hand corner.
Then, holding the pocket square firmly to keep the folds in place, pick it up and turn it over. Then take the right-hand corner in the middle and fold it into the middle.
Then repeat the process on the left-hand side. The pocket square should now be approximately the width of your breast pocket. If it's too narrow or two wide repeat steps 4 and 5.
Next, take the bottom and fold it up towards the top.
Now holding the pocket square firmly turn it back over and you have the Winged Puff.
Finally, place it in your pocket and adjust the gap in the centre of the square to your own preference. A small gap will give you a sharper triangle effect, whereas a slightly wider gap will give you the more classic rounded look.
