From Off-the-Cuff to Classy, These Are the Best Cufflinks to Show Off Your Style

A set of cufflinks aren’t a necessary accessory on a day-to-day basis, but they’re a damn fashionable demonstration of your personal style and a great way to accentuate how to wear a suit.

If you’re wearing a suit with a white tie or black tie properly, it will likely have links at the cuffs for you to fill. From elegant options such as the stunning Haspel seersucker links, classic gold engravable cufflinks from Brooks Brothers, to a more playful pick like the gear inspired rose gold-plated pair from Tateossian — your options for showing off your personality in good taste are endless. Cufflinks are also an easily forgotten, yet truly appreciated gift idea for Dad, a family member, or coworker.

Just keep in mind, however, that you should be mindful for when you wear certain styles. You wouldn’t want to wear your beer cap cufflinks to a fancy feast, nor would you want to wear a pair of diamond-plated gems to cuff the end of your shirt at any old function. With that out of the way, let’s dig into some of our favorite affordable and extravagant cufflink options.

style tips for holiday party outfits green and tan

St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, kidnapped and brought to the island as an enslaved person at 16. He eventually escaped but returned later and is believed to have brought Christianity with him. One thousand years later, he is still celebrated on St. Patrick's Day, the accepted date of his death, March 17. And how do we celebrate it? By wearing the color green on St. Patrick's Day, of course. Wearing the color symbolizes the patriotism of the entire island.

Now, whether you are Irish or not, you can show your support for the island by donning green on St. Patty's Day.

The best casual watches for men (to upgrade your everyday style)
Whatever hobby you love, these timepieces can go with you to the top of the mountain or the bottom of the ocean
Nixon Spectra gold watches for men in style.

A casual watch is the kind of timepiece that pairs excellently with all your outfits -- it’s the kind of accessory that becomes so trusted that, without even thinking, you reach to put it on every morning. Most casual watches serve function over fashion. They are rugged but still stylish. Generally, an excellent casual watch’s characteristics will separate it from higher-end watches.

The first is that a casual watch typically works better as an automatic versus a mechanical -- they’re meant to take some beatings, after all. Second, they shouldn’t be considered luxury items. A snakeskin watch strap and a gaudy twenty-thousand dollar wrist weight won’t work. At the end of the day, a casual watch will serve some good looks, but it’ll mainly function as a tool for your hobbies and your off time. Here are some of the best casual watches that won’t break the bank.
