Rise and shine sleepyheads because spring is officially here! Thanks to daylight savings time, we are now experiencing longer and sunnier days. As much as I love the longer and brighter days, it makes it that much more difficult to tell what time of day it is. While our Smartphones offer simplicity in telling time, they are certainly not the most fashionable choice. Enter the watch, a fashionable and functional way to tell time.
While the watch is no new concept—but rather one that has been around for centuries—it has undoubtedly made a fresh new comeback this season. This spring, watches are seen in a variety of modern metal tones and colors. This Fashionista’s watch showcases the metal trend with its rose gold color. Menswear-inspired, her watch is the perfect combination of chic and trendy.
While the watch channels masculinity, the rest of her outfit embraces all things girlie. A bright tribal print scarf is a great piece to counter-act the heaviness of the watch. By pairing her scarf with a knit sweater and leggings, she nails the ideal outfit for those cool but sunny spring days. Top off your outfit with a great pair of sunglasses, like this Fashionista’s Ray-Ban Wayfarers and you are ready for those extra long and sunny days.
So, the next time you need to tell time, ditch that Smartphone of yours and replace it with a watch. I promise there is no better investment piece for spring than the watch.
Spotted: The spring 2014 ready-to-wear runway of Givenchy featured plenty of watches in textures and tones inspired by the Japanese and African cultures.
