Watches, bracelets and rings are essential accessories to polish off a chic outfit. Not only did I love this Fashionista’s preppy look, but her Michael Kors watch caught my eye as well.
Her bright, magenta sweater paired with a plaid button-up underneath and chocolate brown boots make her the ultimate “prepster.” Wearing a button-up underneath a sweater helps keep you warm and adds pattern to a simple sweater, or you can even mix patterns. Banana Republic has the perfect striped sweater in multiple colors and J.Crew has comfortable button-ups in different colors and patterns.
Watches have become the go-to accessory for any outfit with bracelets to finish it off. Fashionistas have started piling their arms with their favorite pieces. Michael Kors, Fossil and Nixon are some of the top watch brands right now and it takes some time to pick the perfect watch. Fossil is a great brand because you can get the styles of the more expensive brands at an affordable price.
When shopping for a watch, you must have an idea of what you are looking for. You want to know if you are in the market for an everyday watch or a dressier one for night occasions. It also depends on what your personal style is. If you wear gold earrings for everyday occasions, you might not want to get a silver watch.
If you want one gold watch for everyday occasions and one silver for night occasions, by all means go for it! I, on the other hand, had a budget and had to be selective with my choice. Gold and silver are not your only options either. There are white, clear, tortoise horn, rose gold and so many other colors.
For an every day watch, you will probably want to stick with a more traditional color especially if you are spending a lot of money. But if you find a mint green watch for $20.00 that would go perfectly with an outfit in your closet, have at it!
This Fashionista chose a silver and gold watch to pair with her outfit and it adds sophistication to her prepster look.
