For a man, a men’s watch is the only acceptable accessory next to cufflinks. Women have much more freedom when it comes to accessories, but a watch should certainly be one of them.
A lot of people want to know exactly how to pair their watch with the accessories that they want to wear and in today’s article, I will teach you how to perfectly pair those accessories with your preferred timepiece.
Choose a Watch with Utilitarian Details
There are so many accessories out there and women want to mix and match things to make them stand out from the crowd. If you are going for that approach, I highly recommend that you get a watch with utilitarian details.
To get some inspiration, take a look at the classic Casio watches that you can find on the market. They are sleek, subdued, but they are classy and can be perfectly paired with whatever accessory you want to wear alongside it.
Match Your Cufflinks with a Timeless Masterpiece
For men, aside from a watch, cufflinks are the only things that you can use as accessories, especially if you are wearing a nice long-sleeved shirt.
For that purpose, you may want to go with a classic Tag Heuer watch with a metal watchband. A metal watchband can really help accentuate the look of the cufflinks.
The reason why you’d want to go with a classic Tag Heuer timepiece is that it is usually made of sapphire glass which means that even if your shirt or cufflinks get in the way, it will never scratch the timepiece. Aside from that, the look just complements what you’re wearing.
A Dive Watch Isn’t a Bad Thing
Now, some people might tell you that pairing a dive watch with a long-sleeved shirt is a huge no-no, but I think that you shouldn’t restrict yourself from doing so.
Wearing a Rolex Submariner, a classic dive watch that was launched in 1953, is certainly really good on any man. Plus, it has 100-meter water-resistance which means that if you do decide to go for a swim with the watch on, you shouldn’t worry too much about it.
Go for Minimalism
If you want your accessories to shine out more than your watch, then I suggest getting one that has a minimalistic look. Ideally, you want a basic watch with just a simple calendar for a watch complication.
As for the color of the watch face, you can never go wrong with either a black or a white one as both colors should match whatever it is that you’re wearing alongside it.
Monochrome is for the Bold
If you are wearing a ring and you want your timepiece to accentuate that, you might want to go with a monochrome watch. A single-colored watch will make any ring that you put on your fingers pop out even more.
Use a NATO Strap
Another great way for your accessories to pop out is to use a fabric strap instead of a leather or metal watchband. In addition to this, the NATO strap comes in a variety of colors, which means that you can mix and match styles depending on your needs.
