Choosing Cuff Links For Everyday Wear

Choosing Cuff Links For Everyday Wear
By JM Anderson

Many believe that the way you choose to convey your outward
appearance is a reflection of your true self. When you first
meet someone, this is your opportunity to make a memorable
first impression. If you dress to impress, the people around
you will notice because whether or not they realize it, people
often make decisions based on appearance. For a man, choosing
the right cuff links may not seem important, but these small
accessories may very well be the staple that pulls the entire
look together.

If you want to dress to impress, this doesn’t mean you have to
wear uncomfortable shoes and a business suit every day. But,
for a man who wears a suit to work, cuff links are a must. If
he dresses business casual, which may mean a khaki pant and

this, you need to know which styles of cuff links suit you best
and which are appropriate for your style of dressing.

Cuff links are available in either goldtone or silvertone, but
premium designs are also often available in genuine gold and/or
sterling silver. The precious metals are more expensive, but
will last for a lifetime. If you are just experimenting with
various styles of cuff links, the most economical choice will
be goldtone or silvertone. These are easily found at any
menswear store and even online, but the precious metal cuff
links are more scarce in today’s marketplace. They can,
however, often be found in high-end menswear stores and even
jewelers may carry cuff links in your choice of genuine gold or
