We kick-started this week by talking about skirt suits, which should be a fashionable work staple. Keeping up with the mood today we have put together and extensive and huge guide of budget watches that you can wear to work. These work essentials are more than just time-keepers. For work, watches are the easiest go-to accessories. You can have 3-4 of them and expect to match them with most of your outfits.
That said, as much as we would like to spend our savings on a Cartier we would like to keep it real too. Hence the budget post. But we promise, our editors left no stone un-turned and DID NOT compromise on style. The list has trendy low-cost options in every finish you can imagine. But before we begin, have a look at these street style inspirations that will give you visual references of what goes with what and also how you can team up bracelets and rings with your watches.
A classic gold watch can dress up your work wear outfit and make it chic. Pair it with gold top finger rings and a gold necklace.
Just like black pants, black watches also can go with along pretty much anything. And since the black pants are a staple, you can pair the black watch with them anytime.
Black and Gold
This one best of both categories from above – goes with everything and is dressy chic as well. Not only that this one is suited for taking from day to evening with ease.
Silver watches are great for the weekdays when you are dressed strictly business as well as your casual Fridays, when dark wash denims rule the roost. And in case you are the one to wear crazy denim watches to work on Friday why don’t give the Friday Dressing ethics a read.
If you are not into the bling of gold but still the black and silver watch will just not be enough for your outfits, rose gold is your answer.
Brown strapped watches have a tendency to look rugged when you need, androgynous and classic as well. From its tan colored versions to darker browns take your pick.
A few seasons ago, a white watch would not have a category of its own. But today it’s a classic as well. A subdued statement if you will, but it has become a must-have now. Do you have yours yet?
The last category we cover is the statement watches, because sometimes you need to make one. Whether it is a bright color, an off-beat material like beaten cork or prints, you can go bold with a statement watch. The only caution is to not go overboard, as it is still work wear.
