Accessories Report

From scheduling events to making appointments to timing our days, many of us know all too well how precious time is. There’s a saying that we have time in our hands and in the world of fashion, time is literally on our hands. Or wrists should we say, as statement watches continue to be this season’s biggest trend. An essential accessory for Fashionistos and Fashionistas alike, watches work like clockwork as timepieces ensuring everlasting chic.
Truly timeless, wristwatches have recently popularized as not only functional, but fashionable accessories that add an extra touch of glamour in a bold and classic manner. Making a statement all on their own, watches are a subtle way to take your outfit from simple to sophisticated.

This Fashionista wears a nautical watch with blue and white stripes, which fits perfectly with her laid back look. For your own twist on time, check out Swatch, where you can choose from an endless amount of creative and innovative watches. Whether it’s glitter hands or leather bands, wrist watches have multiple features that can be modified to fit your own personal taste and design.

If you take pride in being an American, you know there is nothing we love more than our denim and this spring it’s on double duty. This Fashionista rocks the latest denim on denim style with a pair of dungarees mixed with a lighter jean jacket. To rock this trend, make sure to contrast washes and fits so that your all-over-blue ends up all-over-cool. This Fashionista continues the color palette with a navy polka-dotted blouse, a lighter feminine contrast to the heavier fabric of the jean and wears a delicate necklace to complement.

Like a good friend, always there to support denim is the never-failing leather. This Fashionista proves the two’s perfect pairing by accenting her waist with a bold brown belt and a vintage leather messenger bag that keeps the look casual and collected. Last but not least, this Fashionista finishes her ensemble with a quirky pair of hipster glasses, a unique pair of black booties and a retro travel-inspired phone case.

We give time, we take time, we watch time and most fabulously, we wear time. Watches continue to stand against the test of time and trends as an accessory that accentuates any style across all ages.

Spotted: Watches are multifunctional accessories suitable for both men and women as Michael Bastian so elegantly showcases in his fall 2014 menswear collection. Their luxury and multi-functionality only enhances the reason that wrist watches are timeless pieces meant to have and last any season.
