Do you hate dressing up? Does the thought of being confined in a fresh, crisp dress shirt and well-ironed pants immediately make you feel nauseated? For some people dressing up for their day-to-day activities can be as easy as 1-2-3, but when it comes to dressing for an occasion, particularly a formal one, it can be daunting. Well my friend, no matter how hard you try to avoid and resist this kind of situation, you really cannot hide from it. You have to face the awful truth that such a time could come and it will ask for you to, well, look your formal best. Need some advice? Here's a guide that should hopefully make you more comfortable when such a need arises.

First of all, before dressing up, be sure to take a bath. Trim your nails, brush your teeth and shave, if necessary. Second, be sure to smell good. Put on some deodorant and fragrance, but keep it subtle. Third, mind your clothes. Be sure that they are laundered and well pressed. Check if there are repairs that need to be done before wearing them. Fourth, make sure your shoes are clean and polished. Nothing beats a man with shoes that shine! And lastly, be sure to comb your hair properly. Only very few men, and don't be quick to assume that you are one of them, can get away with a dreamboat hairstyle - and even that needs some kind of preparation, contrary to what many people actually think. For a formal event, don't let any hair be out of place and please, no rock star look!

So now, let's try to choose some clothes. Formal gatherings usually call for dress codes. If it calls for Black Tie, men should wear black tuxedo with a white shirt, black bow tie, black waistcoat, black patent shoes, and black socks. When it says White Tie, a black tailcoat with matching black pants, white wing collar shirt, white pique vest, white bow tie, white gloves, black shoes, and black socks are the important items on your ensemble.

An item that adds to the elegance when dressing up formally could be a simple men's jewelry called a cufflink. For most men, this item is only encountered when wearing a tux or when somebody gives it to them. It may be a small accessory but it has a big impact on the look of a suit or dress shirt. Nowadays, personalized cufflinks are in demand. Not only are they unique, but it's one way of showing a person's identity. This is why engraved cufflinks are becoming popular in the market. A cufflink is engraved when a design is incised on its flat surface by means of cutting grooves into it. The result is a decorated object itself.

There are many kinds of engraved cufflinks. From initials to symbols to favorite characters, all of them can represent something that truly belongs to whoever wears these kinds of cufflinks. Even those who decide to give cufflinks as their special gifts usually have them engraved with a meaningful character that reflects a part about the recipient. As they say, great items can come in small packages, and engraved cufflinks surely belong in this category.
