Watch This

Not too long ago, I thought watches were pointless.  These days, that is no longer the case (hence this post).  I used to think of watches only in terms of their function, telling time, and thought, “Why would I need a device to tell time? I have a phone for that.”  Well, my friends, I turned over a new leaf once my perspective shifted: yes, a watch is a device that serves an nearly obsolete need, but it’s also an accessory.  A watch can convey a person’s style just as a bag or a pair of funky socks can.  Watches can be playful, powerful, and everything in between.  Here’s a curated list of timepieces that are, well, timeless.

1. Casio Mini Watch

I’m a fan of the retro vibe this watch gives off.  Since it’s a mini, it’s retro looking without the bulkiness.  The chrome finish is especially sleek and will match everything.

2. Abstract Print Watch

I love black and white prints and this abstract one is so fun looking! This watch definitely gives off a more casual/street style vibe. The print is definitely eye catching; pair it against a solid shirt/dress and it’s sure to catch attention.

3. TKO Slap Watch

I received a black and white polka dot TKO slap watch as a birthday gift one year and it’s adorable.  These rubber watches have a super charming nostalgia factor- they’re slap bracelets (hence the name “slap watch”).  The faces and bands are also interchangeable, giving them high customizability.  This watch packs a punch at a reasonable price point.

4. JORD Wood Watches

If you’re not into the corporate or playful vibes, consider the whimsical wood watches from JORD.  The most affordable style is still pricey for a college student, but a worthwhile investment. A wood watch will be a style staple years down the road. My favorite one is the maple, but they’re also available in sandalwood and zebrawood.

5. SWATCH Fiorinella

This watch will add a touch of spring cheer to any look.  This design just came out this month, so you’d be among the first to own it! The hot pink face adds a wonderful contrast to the white band.

6. Adidas Watch

Like the rest of the fashion world, I can’t get enough of Adidas right now.  This watch is both sporty and trendy.  I’d wear the royal blue one with a groutfit for maximum contrast.
