Personal Touches: Cufflinks
No formal outfit is complete without cufflinks — that is, the decorative pieces that fasten both sides of a French cuff shirt’s cuffs.
Cufflinks are one of the best — and easiest — ways to add some personality or flair to your outfit. After all, they stand out without being distracting.
Now, there are several ways to get creative with cufflinks. First, they come in different materials, including stones, precious metals, and glass. There are also several closure types to choose from, including:
Fixed back — These slide through the sleeve cuffs without needing adjustment
Chain — A classic option that comes in creative designs
Toggle closure — Perhaps the most common type, these are secure and easy to affix
Stud — These are compact, refined, and minimalistic
Ball return — A complex closure type, these are versatile and easy to customize
When picking out cufflinks, choose ones that represent a specific interest or passion you have. You could also get some that are custom-made or engraved with something important to you — your initials, your bride’s initials, the wedding date, etc.
The great thing about cufflinks is that they can complete your outfit while adding a personal touch. Not only that but you can keep them for the rest of your life as a keepsake to use again on another special day, like an anniversary dinner.
