Whether you are attending a wedding or a boardroom meeting, nothing subtly demonstrates your sense of style like a set of cufflinks.
But often with fashion there are a set of ‘rules’ that are based around what you should wear and when.
However, those rules are constantly in flux and can be easily confused. Fortunately though, we put together a few pointers on what to consider when picking out your next pair of cufflinks.

These low-key designs to cufflinks will ensure that they don’t detract from the rest of your suit and will generally complement your overall style.
