Timepieces have been an important wardrobe staple long before Jay-Z started strategically name-checking his latest investment in song. Aside from the obvious benefit of helping its host tell time, watches add a layer of sophistication and are the perfect exclamation point to a polished look. And while style experts always dish on which foundation items you need to build a wardrobe, watches are the accessory that is most often overlooked. Until now.
Here are four timeless watch trends that’ll help you finish off your look:
1. All White Everything: Kenzo Honolulu Watch – $194
If you’re going to break the ‘no white after Labor Day’ rule, then you might as well be wearing an all-white watch when you do it. It’s the perfect accessory for when you want to make a statement, whether you’re headed to an intense shareholder meeting or a casual picnic in the park.
2. Mixed Messages: Michael Kors Horn Jet Set Watch – $225
Mixing it up is fun and I love that designers are starting to experiment with different metals and materials, like this Michael Kors horn watch from his new tortoise and horn collection. Both of these materials look amazing against the skin and are sure to be a conversation starter.
