Watch trends for the season

Watch trends for the season

When it comes to accessories, many agree that an outfit isn't complete until all of the bracelets, earrings and necklaces are in place. However, one item that should not be overlooked is a watch. Even though the trends surrounding a watch do not change as much as jewelry, they have been an important addition as of late. Here are some of the latest trends with watches to look out for this season.

Pair your watch with bracelets
Arm candy is very popular as of late, and the more bracelets you stack on one wrist, the better. Mix and match your favorite bracelets and cuffs, and then add your watch into the mix. This look can definitely add something extra. If you are not one to stack on the bracelets and a watch on top of it, then just add one or two bracelets for a little pizzazz.

The bigger, the better
One big trend lately has been the "boyfriend" watches, which are given this name because the dial is massive, the size of watches typically designed for men, and looks too big on a woman's wrist – even though it isn't. These bronze, silver and gold dials are big and bold, and are certainly a great starting point for arm candy. Chunky bracelet cuffs and bangles are in, so why not incorporate this with your watch as well? Mix it all together to get a great look for this season.

Mix it up with the metals and straps
There are tons of different styles and colors to choose from, which makes picking out a watch and accessorizing with it that much more fun. You can go for the art deco or sporty look, or opt for classic black and white timepieces. Bright colors have been popular all year long and that isn't changing into the New Year, so go for those big, bold hues if you want to make a statement.

Also, watches are coming in all different metals, and nowadays it is trendy to mix and match metals. So, you can have gold jewelry on and finish it off with a gold and silver watch. Wrap bracelets made of leather are also in style right now, and the best part is that you can incorporate both looks by getting a watch with the leather wrap, as many watches are getting these straps as of late.
