Should Women Wear Cufflinks?
Coco Chanel famously recreated the man’s suit for a woman’s figure and ever since the line between male and female designs have continuously blurred. Men’s traditional conservative style has proven to be successful, so successful that it’s not only men that are wearing the designs.
Cufflinks did disappear for a while and were not considered fashionable. But now they are back on the scene and they are here to stay. Worn with French style cuffs both men and women are wearing cufflinks to work and for more casual occasions. No longer just for men, there are cufflinks that are specifically designed to suit women’s taste. Women’s cufflinks tend to be smaller than men’s but there are just as many designs available to choose from. In addition, women’s cufflink designs are more colorful and carry more intricate designs and do tend to feature a lot of crystals.
So if the woman in your life is a professional and regularly attends business meetings and you are struggling to come up with an original gift why not buy her a lovely French cuff shirt and some beautiful cufflinks? Women who wear cufflinks not only look professional and smart but also look as if they have paid great attention to detail which many people respect.
Women’s shirts have been not only been designed to enhance the female figure but to also retain a certain element of traditional conservative fashion. Cufflinks are not just for formal wear and also look great with a smart shirt and a pair of nice fitting jeans.
If you are feeling extra generous there are Swarovski crystal cufflinks that have been designed with pink crystals in a heart design, blue flowers, gold butterflies, daisies and ladybugs.
These designs are sure to make any woman feel fantastic. In addition there are Fleur de Lis, dragonfly, sea star and pink and purple polka dot cufflinks. Many women are now regular wearers of cufflinks and feel confident wearing them but it should be acknowledged that the same cannot be said about neckties.
Cufflinks are so versatile that it is possible to design feminine cufflinks; however, the necktie will continue to be a real symbol of masculinity and not many women can successfully carry off wearing a tie to work. Though many service providers require that their employees wear ties, including women, it’s not a look that can always be successful. A woman wearing a tie can perhaps look too harsh and assumptions can sometimes be made about aggressiveness and authority which might not be the look that you want to achieve.
Cufflinks however, are excellent accessories that have crossed over and will continue to be worn by men and women for many years to come. People who wear cufflinks agree that once they got used to wearing them they never looked back. Wearing a plain shirt just isn’t the same. Their versatility and clever design means that they are going to continue to be prevalent as a staple accessory in both men and women’s wardrobes for both formal and smart casual wear.
