Watch Out!




Watches are wardrobe staples for every closet. They are probably the most useful accessories we wear as women. Watches come in a variety different colors, designs, and prices. Here is a guide to finding the right watch for you!

There are basically two different styles of watches. You can get watches with leather straps or with metal bands. They both have advantages and disadvantages. Leather straps are great for adjusting to your wrist size, and can be changed easily. Unfortunately, they get old and dirty fast. Watches with metal bands don’t have the issue of getting old or ripped, but you have to get them adjusted at the store to your wrist size. They also, after a while, will get scratched.  Both have their ups and downs, but you can choose what is best for you.

Depending on your wardrobe, skin tone, and accessories you can chose the right watch for you. If you are going for a more casual look, opt for a simple watch. If you want a more formal and sophisticated look, pick a watch that’s more elegant. Depending on your skin tone, choose the right colors. If you are cool toned, your skin favors silver, platinum, and white gold. Warm skin tones favor gold, pewter, brass, and copper. This is just a generalization. If you try on something opposite of your skin tone, and it complements you, doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t wear it. When picking out which metal or color to get, go for either a neutral color or a color you wear a lot. It will be easier for you to complement your clothes to your watch.
