Cufflinks - Modern Art?

Are you one of those people who think cufflinks are not only dated but slightly flashy and tasteless? Well think again. Cufflinks are highly fashionable and there are plenty of really tasteful, artistic designs available for those with an Artistic Eye.

Before we get onto Art Cufflinks, please remember that women look good in cufflinks too! When women need to wear more formal clothes in the office or a business setting then a smart shirt or blouse is often worn with a skirt or trouser suit.

It is therefore perfectly sensible to make the look more feminine by adding matching cuff links, with a feminine look and style, as well as other jewellery such as a broach, necklace or pendant.

If you have an eye for art then why not capture that interest in the cufflinks you wear or buy as a gift for someone special? There are an incredible range of cuff links from fun and funky to more sophisticated and artistic designs.

Cufflinks are very easy to buy online. Because they are so light, carriage is usually included in the stated price.

Art Nouveau

For example if you are into Art Nouveau you might be surprised to know there are loads of Art Nouveau style cufflinks on the market.

Most of these will be modern reproductions but you can also buy antique versions that are original Art Noveau designs.

Art Nouveau (or New Art) was an international movement or style of decorative art and architecture that was popular at the turn of the last century (around 1890-1905).

Abstract Art

If you have a particular favorite piece of art, then why not try to find the design on a pair of cufflinks?

What about Abstract Art? Lets suppose you have a thing about Mondrian, for example. Those simple canvases full of coloured rectangles.

This kind of design looks great on a pair of cuff links and expresses who you are at the same time.

Op (Optical) Art

Op Art originated as early as the 1930s but became really popular in the 1960s. It makes use of optical illusions and is often limited in colour to black and white.

Op art helps us explore the relationship between literally how we see the world (the optical image) and our perceptions about the world including beliefs, artistic images and the written word.

If Op Art appeals to you then why not look out for Op Art cufflink designs? The same goes for Art Deco and lots of other artistic movements.

So what are you waiting for? Get on the Internet right away (sorry, if you are reading this then you must already be online!) and look for those artistic cufflinks that reflect your own taste in Art.

Alternatively, if there is someone special in your life, then why not hit the nail on the head with some cufflinks that perfectly reflect their artistic taste?

  Art Cufflinks are the perfect way to either say sorry, thank you or move your relationship into a higher gear!

      I love Art Nouveau cuff links but I am a heartless romantic! I enjoy a classis skirt and shirt when I have to dress for success and I thank you for pointing out that cuff links are not faux paux. :)

      I personally think cuff links are quite hot and sheek! Very Conde' Nast.. to add some flare to a basic white shirt, mmm.
