Three Types of Watches a Woman Must Have in her Wardrobe
Watches are more than an accessory. They are a crucial part of your outfit and, like any detail, they tell a lot about you. But just like you don’t always wear the same jeans or shoes, you should definitely not wear the same women's watch every day.
Casual, smart, formal – however you’re dressing, your watch can and should match the style and occasion. Sounds hard? Well, it isn’t. Take a look at the three types of watches that every woman should have.
The Metal Watch
Gold, silver or copper, it’s up to you, but a metal watch is a must-have and that’s not negotiable. It can be a timeless classic, worthy of the wrist of Princess Diana, or it can be that elegant touch in an informal look.
Whilst a Cartier all-gold tank française is certainly not for everyone’s pocket, our slim Tayroc Gold can be a good investment for this summer. If you are looking for something more versatile, the black and silver Tayroc Aria might just be it – and only £56!
It will match a shirt and blazer formal look and it will be the ideal accessory for a dinner party or a date with your friends. Oh – did I mention the rose gold? The challenge here is to pick only one…
The Leather Strap Watch
A leather strap watch is not as minimalistic as a metal one and that gives you more room for creativity. Having different types of watches will help you be more inventive when you are getting dressed and choosing an accessory that reflects your mood.
If you’re feeling like a femme fatale, go for a Swarovski Octea Lux Chrono. You can wear it instead of a bracelet and: Wow… Leave everyone speechless. It’s a £350 investment, but surely an asset in your wardrobe. This one is also available in turquoise, blue marine, light blue and silver.
If you’re into something more casual, you can have a Modern Sophisticate Fossil for £89. As you can see, rose gold is in this year. This model comes with a bracelet gift set, which can give you some ideas of how a watch can complement your jewellery, whatever your style is.
If you are on a budget but want to buy another watch this spring, then don’t let this Sekonda escape.
The Wooden Watch
Yes, let’s talk about wooden watches. They are a statement. They are singular. They are perfect for a sunny afternoon in a garden – aren’t we all looking forward to that?
Maybe you never thought about having this type of watch before. It’s true they’re unique, but you might be surprised with how much variety there is.
Let’s start with a dark one – sandalwood with a black leather trap and that precious violet sub-dial; it can be yours for less than £100. Not quite what you imagined when you read ‘wooden watch’? Wait, there’s more.
See the magic that white colour can do? This is arguably the most elegant Botanica watch in our collection and a great choice if you are looking for a lighter watch. Each of these items costs £99.95.
If the violet detail of the previous item was off-putting, this sub-dial has a totally different vibe – feels like you have the heart of the forest in your wrist!
The options are endless in our Botanica Watches collection and a tree will be planted for each watch you buy (as if you needed another reason to get one of these).
