Keeping up with fashion trends can often be a tedious yet rewarding process. You can never really predict what’ll start to make a comeback the next time you’re out shopping for something new. Still, staying on top of these nuances is always worth it. Take cufflinks for example. You see, cufflinks have never really gone away. They’re a classy, understated, and tasteful accessory that can easily blend into most wardrobes. They’re obviously here to stay. But here’s the kicker. Recently, cufflinks have started to emerge as a trendy accessory for women.
The basic rule with cufflinks is simple. If you own a variety of French cuff shirts, then you should pair them with a set of cufflinks. To be on the safe side, you should always keep at least two pairs per shirt at the ready. These days, both men and women can usually get away with rolling up their sleeves and getting on with the day. While it isn’t a complete sacrilege, this typically dresses the shirt down way too much. Why not accent it with a high quality accessory?
In many ways, a good set of cufflinks can tie your entire outfit together. For women looking to break away from the usual professional attire, cufflinks can be a great way to add a different touch of elegance. You’ll stand out in an ocean of boring dresses and pantsuits too! Part of the fun actually comes from starting your own collection. A word of warning though—it can become quite addicting. After getting yourself three or four casual everyday sets, you can really start to have fun with some of the more extravagant pieces.
Like any other fashion accessory though, you have to pair cufflinks with the right occasion. You might not want to choose your loudest set encrusted with sapphires and diamonds for the monthly office party or weekly business meetings. Stick to your greys, whites, and blacks. A plain 18k gold set with a simple pattern will do just fine. You can also experiment with colors and precious stones like rubies, emeralds, sapphires, or even your personal birthstone. Don’t underestimate the power of pink! Especially when you pair it with a classic black blazer. This combination just screams out a whole new level of girly sophistication that works in just about any professional setting.
Also, be sure to have fun and coordinate the rest of your jewelry choices with your cufflinks. That way, you’ll really be able to make every accessory count. Whether it’s a tasteful necklace or elegant set of earrings, cufflinks can really help punctuate a carefully chosen set of accessories. If you’re looking for something versatile enough for everyday wear, try some of the more basic antique and sterling silver cufflinks.
