On Novelty Cufflinks

in Fashion

Cufflinks are usually worn as adornments - accessories of fashion that add style to a gentleman's attire. But it doesn't have to be all formal and conservative all the time. Men don't just wear them for style; they can also wear them for fun. And besides the rules of accessory matching, novelty cufflinks make men's fashion all the more fun and exciting. They add much flavor and variety in the ever growing world of men's accessories.

While classic cufflinks are worn for formality, and contemporary ones are unconventionally stylish, the novelty type, on the other hand, express a different side - the more personal, casual, relaxed, and sometimes funny side, of wearing cufflinks.

There's a very large collection of the novelty type today. They come in different designs, types, shapes, colors - the combination of attributes that makes up a pair is almost innumerable. You can always find a pair for everybody - a pair for every personality.

But first, there are rules of course in wearing accessories and novelty type of cufflinks is no exception. It's a general rule when wearing cufflinks to consider the occasion and the attire. Here's a familiar one - a piece of fashion advice that goes a long way - never wear novelty jewelry of any kind on formal occasions or with formal attire. No matter how cute, how funny, or how expensive they are, you won't impress people positively in any way. It's a big fashion no-no.

They are too loud and simply inappropriate for formal events. No amount of confidence on carrying them in your sleeves will compensate for that mistake. They just won't fit in.

On the other hand, if worn appropriately, novelty cufflinks can well leave a good impression, and be just as fashionable, too. And the best of all, it literally gives away an obvious statement about you. Novelty cufflinks should best reflect your personality, favorites, culture, and interests, etc.

Here are some great ideas:

For example, if you're going to play poker, wear poker themed cufflinks such as dice, playing cards, or poker chip cufflinks.

If you're a music lover, there are miniature guitars, keyboard, radio, ipod, musical note cufflinks and many more. There are even novelty cufflinks that carry popular brand names in the music industry. They're great promotional tools too.

Likewise, there would always be sport-themed cufflinks for the athletic types. There are golf ball cufflinks, bowling pin cufflinks, baseball cufflinks, baseball bat cufflinks, basketball cufflinks, soccer ball cufflinks, and football cufflinks, to name a few. There are also major league inspired cufflinks that carry your favorite team's name or logo.

There are cufflinks for hobbyists, too. There are book cufflinks for bookworms, shovel-shaped for the gardeners, spoon and fork cufflinks for the food tripper or self-made cook, and fish-shaped links for fishing enthusiasts. For the young at heart, there are toy-inspired, superheroes, and cartoon cufflinks.

Overall, novelty jewelry is fun when worn on the right occasion.
