That Little Thing At The End

May 13, 2008
Men seldom shop, we all know that. They spend less time looking around for clothes and they're the type that settles for what they see first, unlike women who go around the stalls checking every style available. When it comes to dressing up though, men and women are in equal footing. Both exert more effort in looking good especially when attending important gatherings and events. While women's fashion can change from season to season based on colors, cuts, and fabrics, men's are somewhat more constant with just a little variation.

The most detail that details can go in men's formal or corporate fashion is the tie and the cufflinks. Cufflinks are like earrings to women: small, but can make such a strong statement about one's personality. Cufflinks are worn with French cuff shirts. These are shirts that have holes at the end of the sleeves where you put the cufflinks to hold the sleeves together. There are three kinds of cuffs: plain, angle cut, or round corner. Small as they may be, they grab attention and can give you a lot of class. They come in gold, silver, or there are even colored ones. There is also a rule when it comes to wearing them: technically it should match the color of your belt buckle or wristwatch. Other men's fashion stylebook does not recommend wearing cufflinks when there is already a bracelet on. Different occasions also require proper cufflinks. There are those that are made for formal occasions (i.e. wedding, business meetings, funerals) but cufflinks also have a playful side. They have themes that can match a personality, like sports, music, and many more. Men who wear cufflinks all agree that it does make give them more confidence and attitude. Although just like in women's accessories, the cufflinks should not be the center of the wardrobe. It should only add drama, accentuate or complement the entire wardrobe.

Even though the fashion world evolves even faster than the world does, classics certainly never go away. No matter what kind of fabric, style, or cut emerges, accessories such as cufflinks remain stylish. It is a hit or miss piece of fashion: when done correctly it gives you a lot of class; when done the wrong way, it will definitely ruin your wardrobe, not to mention your image.

But clueless men out there need not be intimidated with these little cufflinks. There are many online fashion tutorials for men who are clueless with what these are and its purposes. The rules are endless, so just find one that you think is right and follow it. Also don't be afraid to ask maybe your father or grandfather, because now that fashion has become modernized the younger generations do not know classic fashion. It will also not hurt for women to learn men's fashion. It's never too late for anyone - male or female - to learn the dos and don'ts of fashion. After all, these are not just trends, dressing up properly is considered social etiquette.

Fashion need not be intimidating or confusing. Just let your individual style show and give it a lot of class.
