Choosing Cufflinks Of The Right Material For Any Occasion

Posted by on

Cufflinks are an essential part of any modern man’s wardrobe. However with a wide array of styles on the market, it may be difficult to know which is the perfect set for your dress ensemble.

Choosing the Right Cufflinks for Every Occasion

The beauty of cufflinks is that when they are worn right, they can either be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. This makes them suitable for use at the office, weddings, dinners, formal events and even informal outings.

The material of the cufflink is the primary determinant of its formality. Gold, Silver, and Platinum are favorites, and a man should own at least one pair of each to cater to every occasion he may encounter in time to come.

Read on for our tips for choosing cufflinks in the right material for each occasion.

1. BLACK TIE EVENTS - CRYSTALS AND PRECIOUS STONES

Invest in a few pairs made from more luxurious materials, like crystals or precious stones, so you are able to conform to more sophisticated dress requirements, such as white tie events. Complete the look with the ultra formal Raphael Bow Tie and Pocket Square Set.
