...... Being WATCHed ......
With trends going back to the 70's 80's and 90's or sometimes even as far back as the 20's, colors, patterns and everything else being mixed in between, it's no wonder watches are starting to go the same way. With everything telling you the time now, this accessory is being worn for much more than it's practicality .
Personally, I am a huge fan of big faces on a watch, chunky strap , bold colors , etc. But that being said, there is also a time and a place for the more classic, feminine watch to step in .
A wave of new models combines function with fashion.
Check out a few of the trends that's making it big TIME in the watch industry ;)
1. When you go big .. you go OUT !
How to wear it :
The best thing about this trend is the versatility of it . If you favor Rose Gold (like I do :D ) or simple black/white style that you can pair with everything in your wardrobe, there's a style for everyone.
2. Get Arty...
Since The Great Gatsby hit modern day movie screens a few years ago, the 1920's have become something everyone loves !
Which is no surprise as to why these Art Deco - Vintage watches are making a big splash in the watch trends. If your style could be described as different or daring, a watch like this is probably right up your alley .
Make it the statement piece of your outfit , pairing it with mainly black and navy items.
3. Keeping it simple
While the art deco watch trend is being loved, the latest designs coming off the runway is leaning towards the minimalist designs.
In terms of watch designs and styles, these minimalist watches are understated but sophisticated.
These watches are also so amazingly unisex , which makes them twice as trendy with the whole boyfriend jeans and shirt being a hit, so are the watches!
This is great to wear for work and can go straight from boardroom to after work drinks!
4. The Smartie ...
So this goes without saying.. I would've been surprised if it wasn't a trend. With the way technology is going , this is a huge trend right now . The Smart Watch..
For those that really love technology and want to subtly show off their tech savvy side, you may want to opt for a sleek, streamlined design with an array of features to offer.
If you really want to get the most advantage out of it, make sure it can pair with your smartphone and you will be the smartest, trendiest kid on the block ;)
With all the technology and things you have to check the time , people that have a love for style and fashion and accessories such as watches , know they are not going anywhere and are making a statement they are here to stay.
Not just because they have the obvious functions , but for the mere fact that they are a statement accessory.
So , if you're in search for a new time piece, I hope the above will help you make an informed decision.
Thanks guys! :)
