Your Spring Summer 2018 Guide

Posted by on

Spring is finally upon us and everyone's instagram feeds are starting to pop with colours.  This signals that it's probably time to dig in our closets and bring the colour wheel back into our lives.  In the past years, seasons were not as important for men as it has been for women.  Times have changed, and we're happy to say that men are keeping up with the trends.  Thanks to fashionable men on instagram, we don't need to scratch our heads on what looks great.  We know you want in on what's new but you don't necessarily desire to break the bank just to get yourself Spring ready. Here's some tips on what you should focus on for that much needed update.  

First things first, you need a good base.  Everything starts with your shirt. Invest in basic colours- whites are the bestseller with blue a close second.  There are different options out there, but do remember- solids and pinstripes are the easiest to match.  Be boardroom ready- there are different types of shirts and cuffs in the market and the most misunderstood are the French Cuffs.  They have long been associated with formal occasions but that too has changed throughout the years and they're now making an appearance in the workplace. They look great and can be used with or without a suit. We have a solid selection of these classic must-haves here at The Little Link and we know that these are some you should get your hands on.

Now your accessories play a very important part in the changing of seasons.  Your choice of necktie will make a huge impact on your outfit. Here are some tips you should be taking note of to give off those spring vibes.

1. CURATE

There's nothing like doing a clean sweep of your wardrobe and letting go of items you no longer wear.  Decide on what looks good on you and stick to those pieces.  You'll want to make sure you invest on key colours- for shirts and ties.  Stay with the basic palette and keep the rest of your Winter-y colours for now- not to worry, you can wear them again when Autumn/Winter resurfaces.  By then, people will think they're brand new! 

 Keep to classics like Kosta Williams.

2. CONTRAST 

There is no need to bore your blue shirts with the monotony of your accessories.  Citrus coloured ties look great on a contrasting blue shirt. Check out your clothes, the colour wheel, and see what colours you're drawn to.  Don't be afraid of the varying hues, we guarantee you will see and feel the difference.

3. TONAL

Who said you needed to keep your black shirts for Winter?  We know you have your moods too and if want strut in them, why not try some of that tonal layering. Wear them with your silvers and greys and channel the sexy mysterious vibes.  Top it off with sunglasses of course, because your future's just looking so bright.

    Cufflink Guide 101 - Matching Cufflinks to the Colour of Your Work Shirts

    Posted by on

    It can be hard to know how to wear cufflinks, especially when they’re seen as accessories for more formal occasions, but with this simple guide you’ll see they’re easier to wear than you’d think. 

    Cufflinks are no longer just for formal wear. In the 19th century cufflinks became a fashion accessory, offering a bit of a customised style to a man’s wrist with any suit. Nowadays it’s perfectly fine to wear them for many different occasions, work or social.

    In this Cufflink Guide, we are going to show you how a simple pair of cufflinks can take your outfit to the next level at work.

    CUFFLINKS TO WEAR WITH A WHITE SHIRT

    Because the colour white is neutral you can really experiment with colour and pattern when it comes to your cufflinks. You are not in a strict formal environment, so playing around with colour and pattern will work in your favour to keep your own personal style, and, to differentiate your look from the rest.

    How to Match Cufflinks to White Work Shirts

    Shop (clockwise): Sky's the Limit Cufflinks, Rosewood Cufflinks, Blue Laser Cufflinks, Kamehameha Cufflinks, Mosaic Black Cufflinks, Watch Movement Remo Cufflinks

    Never underestimate the power of a crisp white shirt and classic accessories. Our premium 100% Cotton White French Cuff Shirt with a little playful paisley detailing from Dapper Avenue is an essential item for any wardrobe.

    White French Cuff Shirt

    CUFFLINKS TO WEAR WITH A BLUE SHIRT

    When you venture into colour with your work shirts, you can keep the colour pallet of your cufflinks the same as your shirt. For a blue shirt we suggest going for shades within the same colour - a cufflink that has a main colour of blue. Play with different shades to get that understated contrast. Otherwise if you'd like to be on the more conservative side, simply opt for neutrals like monochrome colours or classic silver.

    How to Match Cufflinks to Blue Work Shirts

    Shop (clockwise): Blue Circuit Cufflinks, Boy Scouts Cufflinks, Blue Croc Cufflinks, Sailboat Cufflinks, Keep It Going Cufflinks, Blue Spring Cufflinks

    When plain blue shirts get boring, opt for tone on tone stripes. Woven micro patterns and prints add an interesting visual effect to your business outfit without overdoing it. Pair cufflinks with shades of blue with our signature 100% Cotton Navy Pinstripe French Cuff Shirt from Dapper Avenue.

    CUFFLINKS TO WEAR WITH A PINK SHIRT

    Again, with a coloured shirt you’d want to have a pair of cufflinks that work within the same colour pallet as your shirt. However, when it comes to colours such as pink, it can be difficult to get a pair of cufflinks that aren’t too gaudy that you wouldn't want to wear them to work.

    You can go for a multi coloured pair of cufflinks or a classic silver pair with a twist as this will allow you to keep it subtle, yet have that small pop of colour or detail in there if you want it.

    How to Match Cufflinks to Pink Work Shirts

    Shop (clockwise): Missing You Cufflinks, Pink Laser Cufflinks, Seashell Cufflinks, Hive Cufflinks, Hitched Cufflinks, Hourglass White Cufflinks

    CUFFLINKS TO WEAR WITH A BLACK SHIRT

    A Black Shirt works well with almost all colours of cufflinks, but Gold cufflinks work best with black shirts and suits. Glam up your full black ensemble with either a full gold pair of cufflinks or cufflinks with highlights of gold.

    How to Match Cufflinks to Black Work Shirts

    Shop (clockwise): Interlocked Cufflinks, Rose Gold CufflinksWatch Movement Grant Cufflinks, Captain Haddock's Anchor Gold Cufflinks, Bullet Cufflinks, Watch Movement Adam Cufflinks

    CUFFLINKS TO WEAR WITH A PATTERNED SHIRT

    Feeling adventurous on Friday? When done right, patterned pieces take your work ensemble up another level. Pair your patterned shirt with a single coloured cufflink, preferably in silver, to avoid overdoing it. Classic Silver goes with virtually any coloured and printed shirt.
