Date: December 5, 2019


There are different types of cufflinks one can choose from, as we have previously written in our previous blog post. You may already have an idea of what cufflink best represents your style and personality. However, knowing the various types is not enough to stand out. There are a few things to consider when choosing cufflinks in a certain situation. In this post, we share 3 things to keep in mind when picking out the best cufflink.

Purpose or Occasion

Are you going to attend a formal company meeting or a casual corporate dinner? Knowing the purpose or occasion is important you that the cufflinks you choose actually fits to the event.  For formal events, classic ones like gold and silver would work best with a formal suit and tie look. You may add other elements such as some small crystals and sparkling details for more elegance and sparkle. For informal events, you can be more bold and fun by choosing quirky designs with fun colors that can turn heads and make a lasting impression. Custom made cufflinks are perfect for this type of occasion since you can customize everything to show off your own style and personality.


Many opt for the safest colors – silver, gold, and black, as they can be matched with different colored suits and ties and are safe for any occasion. However, don’t be afraid to incorporate color in your accessories as well as this can instantly elevate your style and make you look less boring. Bright colored cufflinks are also perfect to match a monotone outfit. They will instantly stand out, impressing everyone around you. You can start with enamel filled cufflinks in red, yellow, and blue to start. Especially if you pair your cufflinks with your tie, you will surely look stylish and trendy.

When choosing cufflinks as a gift, we suggest going neutral to be safe – silver, white, black, and even white are great to be given away to your friend or family. You can never have too many classic cufflinks in neutral shades to pair an outfit.

Interest or Preference

Lastly, when choosing the design of your cufflinks, you may have to rely with your own taste and interest. For shapes – do you prefer round or square? You can get more creative and stylish by getting custom made cufflinks in different forms such as a cufflink with a photo of your loved one, or a cufflink shaped as your brand logo, or your favorite cartoon character. Many offer different themed cufflinks for a fun accessory to your outfit. Whatever you prefer, you can easily have your cufflinks customized to satisfy you.
