We've Found The Coolest Functional Cufflinks on the Internet

Even before the dawn of James Bond, Cufflinks have been the staple of the sharp dressed man. Considered to be one of the few pieces of “Men’s jewelry," the cufflink adds a debonair touch to an otherwise blasé formal shirt. Novelty cufflinks have been popularized over the last few decades, with men choosing from a variety of options to represent everything from their birthstones and favorite sports teams to their hobbies and occupations.

But recently, a new trend has emerged on the cufflink market: Functional Cufflinks. Functional cufflinks are fun, useful cufflinks that can fill everyday purposes, or just keep you discreetly occupied in board meetings. Here are the top ten functional cufflinks that will set you apart from your jeans without setting you apart from fun:

Crystal Clear

It’s the absence of color that has taken the runway by storm this fashion season. The best footwear and handbag designers are using this crystal clear trend to project a mix of elegance and sophistication with stylish and innovative shapes and sizes. While slight hints of color are employed to make a shoe pop and handbags stand out, it is the lack of color that make these accessories a hit for spring. Not to mention, it offers a versatility that allows for easy pairings with almost anything in your closet.


This season shoes will have you floating in air, or at least look like it, according to top fashion houses like Givenchy. Footwear has long been a focus on the runway during fashion week, and this year was no exception. The runways were paved with a plethora of sky-high stilettos and eye popping pumps. But how exactly do you rock the crystal clear trend? That’s easy! Effortlessly shift from day to night with a sophisticated oxford, highlighting stylish cut outs and invisible side paneling, or take that little black dress to the next level sporting see through pumps with invisible straps from Michael Kors. Pair it with a clear tote from Fendi or translucent crystal-like clutch from Gucci.
