Wearing the Proper Cufflinks for Formal Occasions
For any event, it is important for any man or women to look at his or her best. This is especially true when it comes to formal events. For me, this means that it’s time to take out your best suits and tuxedos. But along with the nice shoes and ties, consider bringing out your best formal cufflinks as well.
Cufflinks are basically fasteners that fasten the cuffs of a suit or a shirt. These can be made out of simple materials such as plastic or metal, while some are adorned with precious stones such as rubies or diamond, and can be made from precious metals like gold or silver as well. These accessories are noticed especially in affairs where you have to shake hands. Cufflinks, along with the rest of your attire, can make or break a person based on appearance and style.
Formal cufflinks can be either simple in design, merely serving its modest purpose, but probably with some stones or designs attached. There are some designer cufflinks. However, those come with elaborate and sometimes even quirky designs such as birds, basketballs, and cartoon characters among other things. While these designer cufflinks may better suit your fun and animated personality, and can better exude your individuality, some people may see that as immaturity and may not take you as seriously as they should. Thus often simple formal cufflinks are the way to go when accessorizing.
Proper care and maintenance must also be considered for your cufflinks. Treat these things like jewelry in the sense that they should be stored properly, and regularly cleaned and maintained. For formal cufflinks with intricate designs or precious stones, this is especially important so that the stones would not be detached, and dirt and grime would not seep in between the grooves of your cufflinks. Depending on the material and make of your cufflinks, cleaning may range from either just gently wiping it with water and vinegar solution, or having it cleaned by a professional. Either way, you should take note of how to clean your formal cufflinks as you would for any part of your attire.
One last piece of advice; Match your cufflinks with your attire. If you are wearing gold accessories, then wear gold. If you have a silver watch, then wear silver cufflinks. Mixing and matching should be done with your formal cufflinks, along with everything else in your ensemble.
In conclusion it can be said that a cufflink, regardless of whether it is cheap or expensive, formal or informal, it is an integral part of any formal wear. It should be dealt just the way you take care of you suit, shoes, or jewelry. An ugly pair of cufflinks that clashes with your style can have a negative effect on you, so always make sure that your cufflinks are one of the things that you will never overlook when suiting up. Formal events are far and between; as such, it is always important to look the best with the help of Formal Cufflinks.
