Matching cufflinks to your attire:
Matching a pair of cufflinks to your attire is even easier than matching a shirt, suit and tie. There are only a few things to keep in mind when wearing cufflinks:
- Match the color of your cufflinks to your belt buckle. Silver colored pair of cufflinks should be combined with a silver belt buckle for example. When you choose cufflinks with more colors, make sure that one of the colors appear somewhere in your other pieces of clothing.
- Wear a tie when wearing cufflinks. Most fashion experts will agree that you should wear a necktie when wearing cufflinks.
- Design of the cufflinks: For conservative business pick more conservative designs. A pair of cufflinks with naked women would be out of place.
Cufflinks & Shirts
Cufflinks need to be worn with shirts that have particular cuff style. There are three different types of cuffs for cufflinks. Most popular is the so-called French cuffed shirt which comes in two different styles called double cuffed, and single cuffed. The double French cuffed shirt has, as the name suggests, a folded over cuff that is pinned together with cufflink studs. The single French cuffed shirt on the other hand only has one fabric layer and it is not folded over. The double cuffed shirt is the more popular of the two. Besides French cuffed shirts you can also use a dress shirt with so-called barrel cuffs in combination with cufflinks. The barrel cuff looks like a regular cuff but a larger opening (used for your cufflink studs) replaces the traditional buttons. Barrel cuffed shirts are typically worn with flatter/shallower cufflinks and/or decorative button studs.
Cufflinks & Prices
Cufflink prices range from a few bucks to several thousands. The most deciding factor for price is the material chosen. 24 carat gold cufflinks will obviously cost more than cheaper cufflinks made from sterling silver. Besides metals, precious stones can spike up the price astronomically.
