Welcome Fall With Shiny New Cufflinks

 

Summer is prime time for casual dressing. You can wear shoes without socks, cutoffs and even show a little toe if you dare (even though we don’t condone it), all without judgement from the peanut gallery. Suns out guns out, as they say. No matter how you phrase it, everyone is showing a little skin and shouldn’t feel badly about doing so. But as the temperatures cool and layers begin to reappear, it’s necessary to step up your outfit game and remember it’s not all tank tops and boat shoes anymore. And because you’re a stylish man of no frills, sometimes the best way to add shine is with a great pair of cufflinks. So dust off those French cuffs and check out some of our favorites for fall below. Until next year, mandals.

Everyday

Selected Kayne Cufflinks
Selected never looks directly to the trends when designing their simple, masculine accessories. They would rather take the edgy, elegant road, always paying close attention to the details at hand. The Kanye Cufflinks are polished and sexy, perfect for the office and pretty much everything else too. $30.38, asos.com

Vintage

1920s Art Deco Cufflinks
Why buy new when you can look to the past for inspiration? A great example: these 1920s Art Deco vintage cufflinks. Engraved metal with mother of pearl and a splash of mint green make them painfully dapper. Plus we can’t get over the cool factor of their old-school snap closure. $45, etsy.com
