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.
