Watches are a lot like diamonds every time you wear them, but while you may play favorites with your go-to piece, there’s always an art to learning how to style your watch so that it looks not just functional but beautiful as well. Whatever you prefer polished gold or silver, timeless leather, or a colorful canvas band let see how you wear it in styles.
What is the difference between Casual and Digital Watches?
Most analog watches have a face with hour and minute hands or either markers or numbers that display a 12-hour a day. These watches are considered classic and more formal, suitable for business, formal events or a date. Digital watches have an LCD display or LED face that shows time in the numeric form. These watches are considered casual.
A dress watch is one of the most elegant of watches. It isn’t like some watch that’s bejeweled with diamonds or a chronograph that is so big it looks like a clock. It is subtle, understated and charming. Not compatible with jeans and a t-shirt; to the gym; or bowling on Saturday night. Go with a simple and classic styled gold or silver watch with a thin dial with limited or no complications. A dark conservative suit is best paired with a classic dress watch or a diver watch with a leather strap.
Now, if a watch has a metal band, it is considered less formal. A metal band is more suitable for casual wear while a leather band is suitable in any of your wardrobe. Any of the watch categories can be worn with a jeans, chambray shirt and dress boots combination. Digital watches should only be worn with casual clothes or workout attire.
Not a true dress watch, but can match your wardrobe on a daily basis. Sports watches are durable, sleek and made from high-quality plastic composites. Expect compasses, odometers, altimeters, GPS technology, pulse monitors, and a range of other functions for the guy leading an active lifestyle. For activities that involve physical movements, such as sports, a dress watch is not appropriate. The strap, case and watch dial are protected with materials that allow you to focus on the activity so no need to worry about your watch snapping off your wrist or the glass shattering mid-game.
Leather To Leather, It Compliments Right!
Matching your belts and shoes should match your watchband. A black watchband should be worn with black shoes and belt, a brown band with brown belt and shoes. A silver or gold band suits either color. Just a simple reminder, don’t wear a black band watch with a brown tone shoe. Or a brown band with black shoes. A good leather strap is a classic choice, but gold or silver bands are appropriate when they complement the rest of your outfit.
Metal to Metal, Perfect Combination
If you want to coordinate the metal color with your watch and ring, so that all your accessories, for example, are gold. A gold-plated watch is best-suited to clothes and shoes in earthy tones, while silver with grey, blue and black. The metal case of the watch should complement the metal accents of your other accessories. The case can be square, rectangular, round, and polygonal it’s your choice.
A simple friendly advice, wear a nice watch that best suits your style. Wear a sturdy one, so that you can take it outdoors, on airplanes, in the water, and anywhere else your travel goals take you.
