Watch out iPhones, wristwatches are back and better than ever before. What’s different? Watches are no longer just a way of keeping time. Instead, they are as essential to your outfit as handbags and shoes. They are an indispensable fashion accessory, another piece of arm candy in a stack of bracelets. Watches have truly become a chic fashion accessory must have. According to an article in The New York Times, watches challenge designer handbags as the must-have fashion accessory. There is a “timeless appeal to a luxury watch.” Just like the handbag, they are a symbol of power and luxury. The New York Times attributes this rivalry to their “one size fits all” factor.
While they may fit all, no two watches are the same, which allows us many options when trying to select the perfect one. Designers are experimenting with colors, straps, metals and designs to provide a fresh new look to everyday watches as well as watches for special occasions. BTW, this isn’t a trend reserved just for the ladies; many guys are strapping watches to their wrists too. Additionally, watches cross over a range of price points, so there is truly one to be found for all!
