The Jan Leslie Summer Cufflink Zoo Trip

Summer Zoo-Inspired Cufflink Styles

If there’s one tradition from summer that we all remember vividly, it’s the family trip to the zoo. Seeing the animals, drinking icy slushes and being hot and sweaty when you got on the zoo train ride are all permanently etched in most people’s brains. And if you didn’t get to experience the joy of a zoo as a child, it’s never too late (but look for zoos that use larger natural habitats instead of cages). This month, we’re celebrating that spirit at Jan Leslie with a feature on our brightly colored animal cufflinks. Browse all animal cufflinks, or enjoy our favorite picks for zoo-inspired style for him.
