Watches have been a popular accessory since the early 1900s. So it should come as no surprise that virtually every style, color, pattern, and look you can think of has been replicated on a wristwatch.
If you love watches and want to learn more about accessorizing with them, keep reading. We’re breaking down 4 sacred rules and tips for mixing and matching watch bands and watches with every look.
- Try a Trend
While a classic watch is always in style, a trendy look is a great way to give your outfit a stylish boost.
This year, watch trends include plenty of bright colors and punchy, eye-catching details. Wrap bands intertwined with bright ribbon or orange, bejeweled faces are a great choice for summer and your favorite colorful outfits.
If you don’t want to shell out big bucks for a designer look, don’t fret; you’ll find plenty of fashion watch options that offer similar styles at a fraction of the cost at your favorite department stores.
- Use Interchangeable Bands to Accessorize an Outfit
If you’re someone who loves to match a watch to your outfit, opt for a watch that allows you to accessorize an outfit with interchangeable bands.
This is an easy way to make your money go further without sacrificing style.
From cloth bands in different colors and patterns to metal finishes in a variety of tones, there is no shortage of custom bands to choose from. When you get dressed for the day, simply swap out the band for one to match your look, and you’re ready to go!
- Keep it Classic
Whether you want to achieve a timeless look or are looking to invest in a watch and watch band that you can wear for every occasion, you can’t go wrong with a classic look.
Gold or silver (or a combination of both), watches and watch bands are a look that never goes out of style. Whether you opt for a dainty band or an oversized face, these watches can be dressed down for a casual look or up for a night out or to wear to work.
Plus, when you invest in something that won’t quickly go out of style, you can afford to spend a bit more on a nice watch.
For instance, watches by Citizen brand offer top-quality with a look that will never go out of style.
- Build an Outfit Around Your Watch
If you love watches, you likely have a wristband to match each look and choose what watch you’ll wear each day based on your outfit.
But if you find a watch you love and don’t have an outfit in mind to wear with it, reverse the process.
Making the watch the focal point of your outfit and choosing your look after your wrist accessory is a great way to mix things up and create a whole new style that stands out.
