To many men and women, a watch is no longer just a way to tell time. It’s often regarded as a coveted piece of jewelry that tells a story, expresses a feeling, or represents a cherished memory. With so many watch styles to choose from nowadays, being fashionably late never looked so good.
How To Wear Mens Watches
Over time, we’ve seen many stylish women (including celebrities like Madonna and Charlize Theron) sporting mens watches as a style statement. This gender-bending accessory trend has continued to grow in popularity this season, with more women than ever wearing large mens watches. From contemporary looking mens watches with polished, stainless steel designs (like the stunning Victorinox Swiss Army Alliance Watch shown below) to traditional mens watches featuring understated, tanned leather straps, there are a variety of styles to choose from to suit your taste.
The new Victorinox Swiss Army Alliance Watch collection offers several elegant designs created to withstand the test of time. Renowned for producing top quality timepieces that provide both classic designs and reliable function, the Victorinox Swiss Army Alliance watch collection features the “best elements of Swiss-Made mechanical watchmaking”.
In addition to displaying time both accurately and clearly (by using self-winding, ETA 2824 mechanical automatic movement), this new collection of mens watches is both stylish and practical. With its signature Swiss Cross emblem and famous Victorinox red second hand, these mens watches are timepieces that can proudly be worn for decades to come.
These water-resistant, durable watches are available in 4 distinctive, luxurious styles (that coordinate easily with any of your other jewelry or accessories). Options include: Stained Steel Straps or ecologically tanned Black Leather Straps, with either Eggshell or Dark Gray Dials.
Another jewelry trend that has been popping up all over the blogosphere and in street style photos is what the fashion blogger, Leandra Medine (a.k.a. Manrepeller), termed the “Arm Party”. Style bloggers (like Rach Parcell of Pink Peonies and Julia Engel of GalMeetsGlam) have been frequently seen wearing “Arm Parties”. An Arm Party is a collection of bracelets worn simultaneously on one arm.
A current way of doing this look is to include a bold watch (such as a Mens Watch) in the mix, flanked by various sized bracelets and bangles. You can mix-and-match the look by combining different metals, both chunky and delicate silhouettes, and even throw in a pop of color (with a beaded bracelet in a vibrant hue). No matter how you create your “Arm Party”, the key to putting this look is together is to accentuate your personal style by making the look unique and individualistic.
Whether you prefer to wear a watch by itself or with a collection of bracelets, selecting a watch is as personal of an experience as wearing it. The watch should not only reflect your overall style and taste, it should also evoke a message about your personality. Wearing a mens watch represents both strength and power; which is what makes it especially significant when women incorporate the style into their personal esthetic.
