Fashion is like angry family members, late busses, and sample sales: wait long enough for them and they will eventually come around. The recent trend that is sneaking its way back onto our wrists (and into our hearts) is the delicate and elegant watch. Watches are going from chunky to chic and boyfriend inspired to Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
How to Wear It
The little watch trend comes just in time for spring, when hemlines get shorter and the days get longer. A delicate watch can be worn by itself as an accent piece, and goes with almost any outfit. Although most people think of corporate suits and Wall Street when they see a smaller watch, it can actually be worn with anything from a beaded bracelet to a shiny, bangle.
To dress it down, mix your little watch with other accessories with different textures and thicknesses. Play with colors, mix silver and gold, combine shiny and matte finishes, and try adding leather, braided cuffs, jewels, or even charm bracelets.
If you want to keep it classy, mix your watch with something sparkly, but keep other jewelry to a minimum. Let your watch speak for itself and be the focus of your outfit.
