A keepsake at its core, a good watch is possibly the most versatile accessory you can own. And while it may seem retro to reach for a watch over a smartphone, these accessories are more than just about telling the hour—they are making fashion moments one #OOTD at a time. Want proof? Just ask these four College Fashionista community members. While each of these student’s personal style is unique, they all know that a statement watch, like these select styles from Nixon (just a few of many offered by the brand), is the true secret to their best street style looks yet. See how these Style Gurus make this timeless accessory their own, and then tell us in the comments which style is your favorite.
Add some flash to an otherwise laid-back California look with a pop of metal. Courtney Dahl, Pepperdine University, Class of 2019, paired her Nixon Arrow ($200) with a vintage-inspired floral dress and fisherman cap for a casual and cute fit just perfect for brunching.
Finish off a streamlined but totally chic outfit with classic accessories. Kelsie Williams, LIM College, Class of 2020, wore her Nixon Kensington Leather ($125) with geometric earrings for a smart and subtly architectural touch that fits with her New York state of mind.
Go full on glam by keeping a sticking to a party-ready color palette of gold and black. Abby Mason, LIM College, Class of 2021, let her Nixon Arrow ($200) do the talking by keeping the rest of her look all noir right down to her nail polish.
For the ultimate vintage look, double up on equestrian-inspired details. Jade Sayson, Columbia College Chicago, Class of 2020, wore her Nixon Kensington Leather $125 in perfect saddle brown leather with a Victorian-inspired blouse and tortoise frames for a romantic look reminiscent of the American West.
