Ed Westwick Pocket Square

Ed West­wick of Gos­sip Girl fame sports a love­ly pock­et square.

One of my favorite TV shows a few years ago was the indul­gent Gos­sip Girl on the CW and I loved the char­ac­ter of Chuck with his var­i­ous pock­et squares. He always looked quite dap­per even when he was plot­ting against poor Dan. I nev­er did see him with a fresh flo­ral pock­et square, but if he had one, I think he would have looked great.

Here are a few steps on how to cre­ate a fan­cy flo­ral pock­et square that is fresh and new!

Sup­plies:

  • The jack­et you’ll be design­ing for as you’ll need to see how the lapel lays and how deep the pock­et is and mea­sure it for the card­board.
  • Stiff card­board
  • Flo­ral Adhe­sive
  • Fresh flow­ers that do well out of water
  • Tape — Duct tape

Using Floral Adhesive, attach flowers that work well out of water to the top of the cardboard.

When finished and dry, cover with tape to keep it tucked into place. I used clear tape to show you how it looks finished, but you can use any color tape to make a tidy product.
