Guide to Wearing Cufflinks | Vardama

The assumption that cufflinks are for only the formal occasion is wrong, try to approach the traditional accessory with a fresh outlook on how to wear them for most occasions:

Formal Event –

Whether it’s a black tie or white tie event, you are looking for cufflinks that don’t take away from your sharp looking tuxedo. Most recommended would be silver cufflinks that make a classic statement piece, and please avoid the comical cufflinks (they may be a discussion piece, but not the statement you may be looking to express). The best thing about a pair of standard silver cufflinks, is that they can be worn for many occasions with a white dress shirt or tuxedo shirt.

White tie events are known to be a little more formal than black tie events, so as an option; if you will like to really dress the part, Mother of Pearl cufflinks or studs are an exception statement piece instead of silver cufflinks that are best to complement your suit.

For Work –

In today’s day and age, cufflinks may seem too dressy for work, but for those who do work in an office dress code environment or like to keep the office suit attire alive; experiment a little with different cufflink colors and patterns. Find your own personal style to stand out from the pack at the office.

But be warned: Don’t go overboard in different cufflink colors, go with colors that work best with your dress shirt color. For example; if you’re wearing a blue dress shirt such as Vardama’s Bowery, look for cufflinks with a base color that counteract with the shirt such as a dark blue.

Casual Occasion –

You may be thinking ‘how do I wear cufflinks with a pair of jeans?’, this is not the case. The casual look you’re looking for is the one that requires a blazer. For example; a pair of raw jeans, a casual shirt or sweater underneath a blue blazer that goes perfectly well with rose gold, silver or silk knot cufflinks. Talk about looking smart!


Many of Vardama’s dress shirts feature convertible cuffs for the cufflink option. Cufflinks are a great way to add personal detail to your style, a statement piece accessory to add to your wardrobe. There are many types of materials and cufflink styles that can be personalized or monogrammed such as studs, silk knot, whale back, bullet back, chain link, ball return, locking cufflinks and fabric cufflinks.

If you can’t decide what looks best, as a rule of thumb; keep it simple.
