A Men’s Guide to Cufflinks

How to combine and pair cufflinks guide part 3

Generally, cuff links do not pair well with suits, so you should look at your shirts. Obviously, it depends on your personal taste. But to start, a plain white or light blue shirt works well because you can have all kinds of cufflinks on them. They can be contrasting, such as a green one, blue, red, yellow, basically anything that contrasts those colors will stand out.

Match your cufflinks with your accessories, number 2:

If you are daring, you can also try to combine a pocket square that matches your socks and your cufflinks but what you should avoid is having the same tie and pocket square because it just looks gaudy. Overall, pairing cufflinks is a lot easier than pairing pocket squares and ties.

Match your cufflinks with your accessories, number 3:

Personally, I am a big fan of trying to pair my cufflinks with pinky rings or in general, rings and little accessories such as a tie bar or a collar clip. For example, you can combine a malachite pair of cufflinks with a malachite ring or tiger’s eye cufflinks with a tiger’s eye ring or carnelian cufflinks with a carnelian ring. Sometimes, it may not always work out a hundred percent, and that is okay, just try to get something close that works together.

Match your cufflinks with your accessories, number 4:

In general, you want to match the metal color of your cufflinks to other items in your outfit such as your rings or your belt buckle or your monk strap buckles. Some people even match it to their luggage or their suitcases. In my opinion, that is a little over the top, and if it aligns that way, that is great but if not, do not stress out about it because elegance and style are about being confident and not being overly about matching everything exactly to the tee.
