Add a little bling to your cuffs and to your personality with these quirky, classy, attention-grabbing cufflinks. It’s like the cherry on the top of an already stylish outfit. There are a few fashion accessories available for men, and cufflinks are counted among those. But what makes this accessory even more special is that it has the potential to be passed on to one’s children as an heirloom.
While we are aware that traditionally cufflinks were associated with formal wear, like a tuxedo ensemble, new age fashionistas are less purist about its use. Even the makers of cufflinks are experimenting with designs for the young and vivacious, but the classics obviously work like a charm, with an old Hollywood movie appeal.
With the release of the recent movie ‘Kingsman: The golden circle’, the trend of looking sharp in a suit is picking up even amongst otherwise cool and casual boys. And for those who are still skeptical about suiting up, brogues and cufflinks can make for statement pieces.
