Accessories are the ultimate way to add color and personality to any outfit. From bold socks to the emergence of the lapel pin, 2014 was the “Year of the Accessory.” CuffLinks.com, the leader in men’s accessories, understands that the finishing piece to a man’s outfit is the perfect pair of cufflinks. As 2015 approaches, the company has compiled a list of the “Top 10 Cufflinks of 2014,” featuring the hottest styles that were flying off the web and onto men’s cuffs across the country.

#10:     Cool Cut Moustache Cufflinks
With the increase in popularity in mustaches and the Movember men’s health movement, the Cool Cut Moustache Cufflinks were one of the bestselling cufflinks of 2014. Stylish and purposeful, the Moustache Cufflinks give that hipster look while also giving back to a great cause. Each pair sold triggers a company donation to prostate cancer research.

#9:       Pewter New York Cufflinks
Shoppers in a “New York state of mind” were able to show their support of the Big Apple with these sophisticated cufflinks. After all, if home is where the heart is, then what better way to show that love and wear your heart on your sleeve? Hand cast in pewter and made in Texas, any home state can be represented.

#8:       Stainless Bottle Opener Cufflinks
Apropos for the tailgate or a celebratory beer in the boardroom, these truly functional cufflinks are the most stylish way to pop open your favorite stout, porter or IPA brew.

#7:       Game Used San Francisco Giants Baseball Cufflinks
Everyone loves a champion, and no one embodied winning better this year than the San Francisco Giants. Each pair is constructed of baseball stitches that were once used in an actual game. All cufflinks are authenticated by Major League Baseball and come with a hologram serial number, which can be looked up to discover more details of the game. Every MLB team is available as well. Play ball!

#6:       4GB USB Flash Drive Cufflinks
Not only James Bond-like, but actually used for a Bond film, the USB Flash Drive Cufflinks are the ultimate representation of function meeting fashion. Sleek and powerful, shoppers can store up to 1,000 mp3s, photos and files at the convenience of your cuff.

#5:       American Flag Cufflinks
From politicians to professional athletes, the American Flag Cufflinks have been a favorite of the year. While political party lines continue to polarize nearly every subject matter, the one thing that binds us together is our love of country. The stars and stripes are the ultimate symbol of freedom and democracy – a truly exceptional design.

#4:       Silver Knot Cufflinks
Classic, timeless and can be worn with anything, the Silver Knot Cufflinks are one of the top cufflinks for 2014, and possibly every year moving forward. Polished silver executed into the strength of a knot, these are truly one of the quintessential cufflinks.

#3:       Infinity Edge Engravable Cufflinks
Every man should own a pair of cufflinks with their monogram. They are the perfect personalized gift and stand the test of time. 2014 featured a monogram explosion from hats to backpacks. We agree with the movement, but with sweet subtlety. Please don’t pair these with your monogrammed sleeves.

#2:       Silver Watch Movement Cufflinks
2014 marked the release of details on the iWatch, Fit Bit and other devices that will tell you everything from the time to your vital signs. The Watch Movement is a throwback to a more elegant time. The cufflinks feature movements taken from old watches and evoke a style from a different era.
