Do you have a favourite accessory? Is it a pair of earrings? Or a necklace with sentimental value? For us at Clozette, it’s a watch. Some of you may think of it as a gimmicky accessory that serves no purpose anymore since phones have built-in clocks in them. But we believe that those tiny pieces of metal and jewllery combined help us keep track of time — the most valuable thing in the world.
Now that we’re almost saying goodbye to 2015, we wanted to help you count the minutes and seconds in style! So keep reading below and learn how to style these gorgeous wrist accessories with any and all of your outfits for the day!
Emphasise by adding bracelets
Bracelets and watches are basically the same. They both look good and they can make an outfit pop more. But instead of layering accessories, thankfully, Swatch’s Night Prohibition has a gorgeous beaded strap design that doubles up as a bracelet! It even solves all your day-to-night outfit transformation woes because it suits both times — finding the perfect balance between casual and ‘dressy’! Plus, with its different neutral colours, you’re bound to find the perfect one!
Size does matter. If you have small wrists and you’re wearing a watch with a diameter that’s too big, then it’s just going to overwhelm you and your outfit. Be very picky when it comes to watch sizes because having a giant clunky thing on your wrist might break your ensemble. Which is why the Longines Hydroconquest watch, which comes in various sizes for men and women, will be perfect for you! This waterproof and extremely durable watch will suit all sorts of wrist sizes, and the best part is that they can resist water and they won’t scratch at all!
Besides being appropriate for the occasion and having the right fit, watches should be neutral enough that they go with any outfit you wear, any time of the year. Unless you’re willing to spend on a number of timepieces to match each and every one of your OOTDs, we suggest going for classic leather straps in neutral colours, or stainless steel ones in either gold or silver.
But what about a watch that combines leather and steel straps? The Calvin Klein Impeccable watch does just that by weaving steel links with a soft black leather strap for that sleek and refined finish — perfectly matching with any outfit you can think of!
When it comes to watches and styling it with your looks, you have to judge both the outside and the inside. You wouldn't want a watch that works well but doesn’t go with any of your clothes, right? When watch-shopping, alway pay attention to its design; does it feel ‘you’? But also pay attention with how it works — does it resist water? Will it scratch on hard surfaces?
Lucky for us, Omega came up with the De Ville Prestige line for women that will suit all tastes. They’re water resistant, come in leather and steel straps, and their understated but sophisticated design make them a delicious piece of eye candy that will elegantly complement any outfit!
