Cufflinks are an intriguing men’s accessory. You only get glimpses of it but it’s enough to intrigue anyone who’s seen it – and it gives anyone who wears it an instant image of sophistication and class. It’s no wonder that celebrities love wearing cufflinks when they attend various events. Cufflinks have escaped the staid confines of formal wear and have started to invade casual wear territory – and celebrities have embraced it in a big way.
The former N’Sync boyband heartthrob has successfully transitioned into a respected artist with two critically raved solo albums. With his second album Futuresex/Lovesounds, Timberlake showed off a new, dapper image, eschewing streetwear for fashionably skinny suits and ties. Of course, a big part of the ensemble are his cufflinks. He has even taken to wearing them when performing on stage.
If there’s one celebrity that every man aspires to be, it would be George Clooney. He has brought old world Hollywood glamor, especially with the way he carries himself. The classic suits he wears are often accented by nice designer cufflinks. He even wears cufflinks when wearing suits and shirts with an open collar.
Many people consider President Ronald Reagan as the man who made cufflinks cool again. He started wearing them in many events and people obviously took notice. It helped that he wore French or double cuff shirts in different colors that made people really take notice. After Reagan, men started copying his style. And, thus, cufflinks surged back into fashion.
Pierce Brosnan is the epitomy of British cool and it is evident in how he carries himself. The word “debonair” perfectly describes Brosnan and he has projected that classy image ever since his Remington Steele days in the 80s. He amped up that charm and classiness with his stint as James Bond and he has continued to be a style icon until now.
