With versatility and lasting strength, watches offer a purposeful aesthetic – all at an arm’s length. The simple band across the wrist carries an ease of practicality that trumps rummaging for the date and time on your smartphone’s clock. Thin or large, a watch is flexible to a day’s mood or personality. Interchangeable bands allow for a diversity to match whatever occasion. Materials, too, such as leather, metal or plastic, account for an overall appearance of either diligent or carefree. Day or night, up or down, a watch can be attached as either the perfect accessory or the perfect friendly reminder.
No longer are the days of the bright and playful character induced watches of an elementary school age, complete with an interface of Minnie Mouse. Though the trend of the simple wristwatch may have bent non-existence throughout the years of high school, college is the textbook excuse to browse for your favorite once more. With the functionality as an alarm, a watch could help with scholarly studying and rising for those morning classes. Add one – or five – and never miss your deadline.
YesStyle offers a variety of wristwatches to suit a certain taste. Try out one of their many vintage style faux-leather bands with a colorful touch, or an adorable ‘cat strap watch’ that greets with a smile. They even feature a handful of pocket watches that may be a unique treasure for the curious. Attach the timekeeper to your preferred necklace chain for a wearable piece of unexpected and collectable jewelry.
ModCloth, too, keeps an updated selection at high popularity. Currently, they feature an eco-friendly crafted piece with a gentle nature and bird front, called the “Always an Early Bird” watch. Alongside, is their pastel “Time is Bright” watch that hints at a definite futuristic and clean hue, enough to couple with brights or darks.
Spotted: J.Crew appropriately paired models with quiet timepieces for a minimal mood in their spring 2011 menswear campaign.
