Who says that the fellas get to have all the fun? Cufflinksman introduces a select line of cufflinks for women that will remind consumers that it is good to be a girl! Adorable and stylish accents in motifs that will register with the female population; ladies cufflinks present the option to accessorize and accent business casual and formal attire, adorning each cuff with a hint of sophistication.
Some of the women’s cufflinks available include the timeless sex-symbol: the black stiletto heel. These Black High Hill Shoe Cufflinks for women are graced with the same convenient wear that the men are accustomed to with torpedo-style closure and handcrafted Silver-plated Rhodium finish. The black liqueur of each tiny shoe glimmers against the high-sheen of the polished silver setting. Tiny sparkling crystals accentuate each heel, exuding glamor and a vintage style to the world.
The Red Glass Shoes Cufflinks are an exemplary pair of unique ladies cufflinks that will add just a touch of ruby red to the cuff, seamlessly accenting apparel for any occasion or event. The torpedo-style backing is securely attached to each silver filigree shoe, with insoles accented in glossy red enamel. These women’s cufflinks are delicate and detailed, perfect for the wearer who is new to accessorizing or who wants to make a fun and sassy impression.
Some ladies cufflinks are also a popular favorite among the men also. Take for instance the vintage-styled Pin Up Girl Cufflinks from Cufflinksman. The silver plated silhouette of the curvacious bombshell will delight and engage, while sparking confidence and swagger in the men and women wearing them. The popular bullet-style back secures during wear, keeping each cufflink intact and in place.
Spring Showers are coming soon, so be prepared folks. What are some cool ways to accessorize for the rain and light breezes that March and April will bring? First off, rain puddles are reason enough to buy these Hunter Bennie Boots for Men. Averaging at about $150, these super sturdy, fashionable Wellie books are comfortable and can be cleaned with basic Armor All (you know, the stuff for your car?)
Tommy Hilfiger has just the right colors in their Spring 2012 line to brighten up the day. Try their classic baby blue collared shirts with red pants. Yes, we love this look, with all that dismal grey for winter, the time has come for some popping color. It’ll add to the overall solid-dark based ensemble for the spring.
And also for those rainy days, don’t forget your classic trench. This differs from your winter coat because it lacks the heavy winter lining and thick/heavy materials. Think light this spring. Just because there’s a monsoon outside from all the rain doesn’t mean you have to wear yourself down…
And of course don’t forget about your shirt sleeves. Spring’s red carpet rolls out brilliant yellows and textured neutrals. Aymara brings these two concepts together by combining a part of Mother Nature (literally, they are butterfly wings) with Sterling Silver to bring you an exotic spring accessory.
And for the chilly evenings, try a lighter scarf than your normal winter wear–like this Silk Scarf by Daniel Dolce. Warm enough to shield the night breezes, but light enough to keep you cool. Made, of course, from 100% silk from Italy…ahh…
And add an Air creature to your accessory list as well: these Dragon Fly cufflinks are reminiscent of long summer nights, lightening bugs, and backyard pool parties. Bring these will you to any event and to the office this season, while you dream of the dawning of Spring Break..
GQ.com recently featured a collection of must-have bags for fall 2012. But we’re thinking in terms of a more transitional fashion sense, like from winter to spring. Taking inspiration from GQ writer Matthew Sebra, we’re proud to feature the coolest, most functional bags this season (and next). The best part is, the all seem to be made impeccably, and many are classics, ensuring your purchase won’t be short lived.
Here are the Best Bags from New York Fashion Week:
Nothing is better than a beat-up, vintage inspired rucksack (nothing beside, let’s say, cufflinks of course…) This season we’ll be seeing a lot of canvas/wool blends mixed with leather accents. The great thing about this is it keeps the weight of the bag on the lower scale.
Fun, playful, and still latching onto Spring and Summer, these no-hassle, yet elegant, totes from John Bartlett are perfect for the seasonal transition. It came go to the office, as well as the beach, and we love the little details consisting of red and white stripes. Reminds us of our own fun accessory we like to call the Red Mint Cufflink…
As we reported in our earlier blog, entitled “Three Designers We Adore,” Joseph’s Abboud’s fall collection is stunning. He may even take the prize for NYC Fashion Week’s Best Runway show (in our book anyways). And as always, pair Abboud’s collection with anything from Aymara this fall season. The juxtaposition of light airy Butterfly Cufflinks and sturdy canvas bags will fit the aesthetic season.
Bastian’s collection also made our blog pages last fall, featuring orange James Dean inspired looks. Remember our “Fall Trend Report 2011: Numero Dos”? Now we couldn’t help feature his 70s meets French Decadence inspired bag for this year’s new Fall collection. And pair this decadent bag with these Chainsaw cufflinks:
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way — in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”-Charles Dickens
As we saw yesterday, great literary figures have a major influence on fashion, as well as their works. Dickens, with his classic Great Expectations, Christmas Carol, and Oliver Twist, has, after a long 200 year stretch, greatly affected our fashion sense.
“Please sir, I want some more.”

Something you may not know about Dickens: “He was obsessive-compulsive. Looking in the mirror and combing his hair was an obsession of Dickens. He would do this hundreds of times each day as well as rearranging furniture in his home because if it wasn’t in the “correct” position, he wouldn’t be able to concentrate. He also made sure that his bed was always aligned north-south, he believed that this would improve his writing. He’d touch certain objects three times for luck and was so fixated on cleanliness that he would frequently clean other people’s homes too.” and “He practiced hypnotism Dickens was always interested in mesmerism and often practiced on his wife (a hypochondriac), his children and friends — to great results.” Or so says National Post’s Melody Lau.
And let’s face it America: One of Britain’s greatest novelist ever would have probably not “made it” had he lived today. His commercial success came while he was still living, which is a huge success for any author. But with modern man’s lack of appreciation or funding of the arts (not to mention the excess of video games, internet, Nooks, McDonald’s chicken nuggets, the invention of the espresso machine…), there is hardly a place for unprecedented literary talent in today’s hustle bustle and financially motivated society.
But then we always have fashion and thank the heavens for that. If we cannot fund all the great writers and authors out there, we can at least fund the fashion scene, which happens to be the most lucrative commercial artistic venue we’ve seen in centuries. Want to look like Oliver Twist? Try these green relaxed pants from Banana Republic and Rugged/Chic Silk scarf from Daniel Dolce:
Gotta have something to put your books and soup bowls in too!
It’s not cheap to look shabby, is it?
We’re in that weird limbo between winter and spring, and counting down the days. With roughly 40 days to go until the blessed season arrives, we strongly advise you take out all those winter accessories and start experimenting. Because, we all know, fall/winter takes the Best Dressed Award every year.
(And don’t forget dear readers, any Aymara cufflinks you purchase from us help a Peruvian Butterfly Farm. Aymara gives you wings.)
At the bottom of your underwear drawer, you have a really cool pair of wool socks. Deep in the recesses of your cluttered closet, you have a vintage neck scarf screaming to be worn. And what about that wool driving cap? Corduroys anyone? Mix and match these infamous staples with colors that pop and touches of spring, just to remind yourself that it’s on the way…
Mix this Burberry Cotton Shirt with a Blue Blazer or Vintage-y Blue Jacket to properly juxtapose the two seasons:
Add a flash of bright sun popping color to your traditional blue jackets/blazers with these Aymara Sun Square Butterfly Cufflinks. You can re-wear every dark piece of clothing in your wardrobe, just remember to add that extra touch of color. Believe us, it’ll keep you going during those long winter days (or are they short winter days?)
And with that said, it’s not just about adding color–it’s about adding texture and cool (unique) pieces to your outfits. Try this Alexander Olch Plaid Tie for example: it’s thinner than your usual tie and will look either ultra sophisticated or quirky on a collar shirt. Maybe even go extra bold and don’t wear it with a collared shirt..
Pair a retro thin tie with a sleek In-Between Seasons Blue/Purple Shirt like this one from CLM. Keep your shirts light and layer them with winter wear. Think jackets, sweaters, cardigans, hats, etc. Don’t weigh yourself down the rest of the winter season with heavy flannel shirts that suffocate, go light and springy:
Top it all off with a classic, retro pair of Ray-Bans. It’ll remind you of the upcoming summer months and give you that coveted chic winter look
