Cufflinks can be used for both formal and informal occasions. For instance, it can be worn to the office, wedding dinners, fancy dress parties or even Christmas gatherings. For formal occasions, pick more subtle designs in muted colors like silver, black and blue with small crystals.

Cufflinks should be chosen to match shirts. The safest and easiest to match colours are silver, white, black and blue. If you are getting a gift for someone you don't know well, stick to safer colors. The most classic designs are pure silver, or black and silver with crystals.
More flamboyant colors like red/pink should be chosen for more stylish/fashionable men who are able to pair it with suitable shirts and ties.
