Cufflink Matching Guide
What should your cufflinks match? While it can be hard to know which cufflinks to pair with which shirt. Our simple guide takes out the guesswork and helps you pair the right cufflinks with the right shirt.

Which Cufflinks Go With a White Shirt?
White is a neutral color, so feel free to experiment with color and pattern when it comes to your cufflinks. But remember to match metals – silver-tone cufflinks if your watch is silver.
What cufflinks match a blue shirt?
For a blue shirt, we suggest silver-toned cufflinks that have shades of blue in them.
What cufflinks match a pink dress shirt?
When wearing a pink shirt, go for a multi-colored pair (with shades of pink) or keep it simple with classic silver.
What cufflinks match a black dress shirt?
Almost all cufflinks work well with a black shirt, but you can’t go wrong with gold-toned or a pair with gold highlights.
What cufflinks go with my patterned shirt?
It all depends on the color of the pattern.
To play it safe, we suggest sticking with subtle silver-toned cufflinks because silver goes with most colors and patterns. As with all cufflinks, be sure they match other metals.
How to match cufflinks to gold accessories?
Matching metals is an easy way to keep your look clean and uncluttered.
Opt for silver and gold-colored cufflinks to match any of the shirts above and not clash with your gold tie clip.
How to Wear Cufflinks
- Begin with the cuffs on your French cuff (double cuff) shirt unfolded. You’ll know it’s the right shirt because of its length and buttonholes with no buttons.
- Next, fold the cuff in half and line up the holes.
- Insert the back of your cufflink through the holes (4 layers in total).
- Depending on the type of back, flip the toggle to keep it in place.
How to Buy Cufflinks as a Gift?
Cufflinks make great gifts. While they may not be for everyone on your list, the well-dressed man will appreciate the thought you put into finding the perfect pair.
The first question to consider when buying cufflinks as a gift is what color is his watch? If he sports a gold watch, you’ll want to purchase a pair of gold-tone cufflinks. The same goes for a silver watch… silver-tone cufflinks.
Matching the color of his watch is the easiest way to choose a pair of cufflinks that he’ll actually wear. From there, you can go as flashy or as subtle as you want – from Santa’s sleigh at Christmas to Thor’s hammer when the world is under siege.
