Accessories Report

Winter scarves, summer sandals and other pieces are usually reserved for a certain season. There are a select number of accessories, however, that prove to be timeless and appropriate for any time of the year. This list includes jewelry and one of the most classic (and sometimes underrated) accessories out there: the wristwatch. This piece goes by many other names like the ticker, the timer or the timepiece. Whatever you’d like to call it, that miniature clock worn around your wrist can be much more than simply a means of telling time. Watches are both functional and infinitely fashionable. They can add the perfect finishing touch to any outfit.

This Fashionista’s watch, a gold Revolt number with a gem inlay around the face, absolutely sparkles. She uses it as a chic and simple accent to an outfit composed of a sage button-up, black skinny jeans and a covet-worthy pair of taupe booties. The metallic accessory brings to her outfit a sense of elegant and understated glam; adding a feminine touch to simple and tailored pieces. Her look as a whole is a combination of neutral colors, classic silhouettes and that dazzling watch. It translates as brilliantly effortless.

Much like our Fashionista’s, a watch can be both understated and classic. A simple shaped watch is an element of your outfit that may not be immediately eye-catching, but is always put together and complementary. One of the many great things about watches is their variety. They truly come in all shapes and sizes, and can be used to accomplish a number of style goals. For example, watches can act as an addition to any jewelry combination. A rose gold watch pops against a medley of other silver jewelry, and looks oh-so-stylish! In recent years, watches have commonly acted as statement pieces. A bold, oversized face or a brightly colored watch adds a fun and daring vibe to any outfit.

To emulate this Fashionista, find yourself a watch that is true to your personal style. Trust me, it’s always a good time!
