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.
Fashion Week returns with a deep (much-needed!) breath of fresh air for the upcoming spring 2013 season. Most of the lines feature series of texturized prepped-out spring looks, never-before-seen sweaters, a definable nod to pastel colors, and laid back 90s look with light fabrics. As we always seem to, (no we have no commercial/capital ties with this company, we promise! :), we love Michael Bastian’s spring collection. His stuff is always so fresh. It’s the dreaded-of-all words: wear-able—plus it’s crisp, original, and sexily subtle.
Let’s start with the Grey Linen Suit Look, shown on September 9, 2012:
“The gray linen suit look…can’t wait for summer to wear it!”—Ted Stafford, GQ Fashion Market Director
The Vibe for Spring 2013
It’s boogie nights this season at Michael Bastian, as the designer’s American alpha males are walking with some extra swagger in their step. It’s all thanks to a louche collection of menswear that’s equal parts sporty and relaxed, but always effortlessly cool. Bastian’s signature, classic menswear pieces made fresh, still anchors the lineup, seen in versatile sport coats and clever cut-off shorts, but the designer experiments even more in this outing, like crafting a deep V-neck sweater front in the style of a kimono robe. Never one to shy away from color, this season Bastian softened his hues, opting for a dusty palette that sees neutral grays and tans paired with pistachio and lilac. It’s a collection made for the type guy who owns any room he walks into—and, more importantly, knows it.
And Parke and Ronen never seem to disappoint either:

Words cannot describe McQueen’s new Fall 2012 Collection. Just watch…
Straight from the mouth of GQ magazine contributor Matthew Sebra: “Sarah Burton’s Fall 2012 collection for the house of McQueen celebrated one of the brand’s hallmarks, razor sharp tailoring, and to let guys experience the roped shouldered goods beyond a traditional lookbook the brand put together the above clip. It’s traditional Savile Row menswear meets signature McQueen plays on proportion and pattern and loaded with natty rigs a stylish (and loaded) man could use.”
Here are some of Cufflinksman’s Favorite Looks, coupled with our (much more affordable, but still as stylish) accessories:

Things to DO now that Spring is finally here.
Four things to brighten your spring, enliven your cultural step, and add a little fashion to your fabric.
Take this little Animal Gecko Cufflink as inspiration–make sure to get out in nature at least once a week. This can be a simple stroll in the park, bird watching, short hikes, nature trails, or spending time in your backyard or fire escape lounging. If it’s a fire escape, though, please, watch out for the gaps. Vitamin D is something most Americans are lacking and it’s been linked to many physical and emotional ailments (specifically depression) so make sure you get your daily allotted 15 minutes of sun exposure. If this is impossible, take a daily vitamin. Take the kids to the zoo, see the animals, take a short drive over to the beach or lake….enjoy what mother Nature has to offer.
Take these Tateossian Turtle Cufflinks little with you for good luck, a bright spring color, and a whimsical reminder of the simpler things in life.
Take a road trip…preferably Jack Kerouac style, but we can’t all hitchhike our way West (or East). This means, letting it all go, packing ONE bag, filling up the tank, and just going. Stop at diners, visit local monuments, spend the night at camp grounds (preferably with showers). This Freeway Green Tateossian Cufflink reminds us of the importance of the open road, the vivid colors of nature, and the sleek austerity of the speeding, moving vehicle. Tateossian designed this cufflink with exactly that in mind.
And while you’re doing all this nature walking and bi-coastal traveling, make sure you bring a compass. Mapquest isn’t accessible everywhere and you may find yourself without wifi or a printer handy. (That’s the point, right?) if you really want to go old school, and have trouble navigating by the stars alone, try this functional Tateossian Compass Cufflink.
Visit a museum. If you are blessed enough to live in a Metropolis, take heed of all the art events taking place around your city. In NYC for example, there is an amazing Stein Collection on exhibit until June 3rd, 2012, featuring some never-before-seen-together Matisse, Picasso, Renoir, and others’ paintings. The collection is one of a kind and a must see. Similarly, at the 42nd Street Library there’s a famous Shelley Exhibit, honoring the life of the rogue/poet/lover/revolutionary Percy Shelley. Whatever it is…go to a museum this spring, preferably on a rainy day, and take in the beauty of Modern Art and public exhibits (normally free!)
Secondly create something yourself. If you’re not an artist, or have absolutely no flair for artistic creation, think of your wardrobe as assembling a masterpiece–carefully select everything “beautiful” from your socks to your cuffs. You will then be a walking Renoir, but since he rarely painted men, you probably won’t have all the curves.
