Stylish and festive cufflinks for all occasions
FAQ - When to wear cufflinks?
Cufflinks are used when you want to be really handsomely dressed. In all situations where you wear a suit, jacket, tuxedo, or evening dress, it is an excellent opportunity to wear cufflinks. It is both an opportunity to raise the level of style while you can express your personality with a pair of cufflinks that reflect some of your interests.
What kind of shirt is needed to wear cufflinks?
To be able to wear cufflinks, you need a shirt with a single or double cuff. A shirt sleeve with a simple cuff needs an extra buttonhole to be able to attach the cuff button, which many shirts of this type have. Double cuff means that the shirt sleeve is folded twice, after which the cufflinks are threaded through the holes that are intended specifically for cufflinks. The cufflinks should be fastened so that the decorated part is facing outwards, ie away from your body so that they are visible to your surroundings.
Which cufflinks should I choose?
It all depends on the situation and your personal taste. If you are going to wear a tailcoat, something that matches the buttons of the tailcoat shirt is recommended, which are usually in silver or gold with mother of pearl. If you are going to wear a tuxedo, something that is stylish is recommended as you do not want it to look "flashy". A pair in silver or gold with the shape of a square or a rectangle is a safe choice. If you are going to a party or dinner where you are going to wear a suit or jacket, you have freer reins to either wear something you think is nice, or something that expresses your personality. With a pair of personal cufflinks that express one of your interests, you have a good icebreaker.
