Men’s fashion : how to wear a watch ?
The watch can be the ultimate accessory that completes your look. But how do you choose the best watch to show your elegance? In this article, we’ll find out how to wear a watch properly, what type of watches work best with formal or casual wear and how to choose a strap to go with them.
Size : what is the best size for your body type ?
The size of the watch should be chosen according to the shape of your wrist and your style of dress. A smaller watch is more appropriate for casual looks such as jeans and t-shirts. A larger watch is appropriate for formal styles and will give you a stronger presence. For men, the standard size for an average wrist is between 38mm and 42mm, however, it can go up to 45mm.
Material : stainless steel, yellow/white/pink gold or titanium ?
The material used for manufacturing is important, as it influences the overall durability and instant luxury your watch brings. Stainless steel is the most common material and is still the best choice in terms of quality-price for wristwatches. Yellow, white or rose gold watches as well as titanium watches are generally more expensive, but more durable.
Choose a strap that matches your outfit
Wrist watches should be accompanied by a strap that complements the color and style of your outfit. You can choose from a variety of classic straps (leather, rubber, fabric), modern straps (stainless steel, gold-plated) and chains for a vintage touch. Details such as stitching and rivets can also add a chic touch to your look.
How do you match your watch to your other accessories?
Wearing a carefully chosen watch can help complete your look, but it’s not the only piece to consider. Pair your rings and earrings with your watch to create a cohesive outfit. For formal looks, opt for matching ties, shirts and cufflinks. You can also match the style and color of your watch with shoes and belts for a bolder look.
