How To Wear Cufflinks

yhst-40444713696840_2079_167131999We know many of our readers and avid shoppers are already well acquainted with wearing cufflinks, but we wanted to stop and give some tips for those that might be new to the world of cufflinks. If you’re giving cufflinks as a gift, or if you just bought your first pair, this post is for you!

First, you have some options when it comes to how you wear the shirt itself. You can fold the ends of the cuff over each other, like a regular button cuff, and then put on your cufflinks. However, you can also pinch the ends together, so they extend out from your wrist. This option is more popular as it is more eye catching and will better show off two sided cufflinks.

Next, there are three main styles of cufflinks. It’s very simple to put them on:

1. Swivel Post:  turn the post so it is in line with the cufflink and then insert it through the buttonholes from outside to inside. Turn the post back so the cufflinks are now secure. These are one style that works best with cuffs folded over each other, so the back side is hidden!

2. Button Style: Secure these cufflinks by sliding one button through both buttonholes. You will have a decorative piece on both sides of the cuff!

3. Clip Style: Snap these cufflinks together by putting each half through a buttonhole and attaching them in between, holding your cuff secure.
