Who needs a watch to tell time, when you’ve got a phone, right? Wrong. You actually need both but not to be excessively on time but to look excessively cool without any effort. How cheesy, I know. But hear me out.
No matter how often trends will change and fashion will be more and more technological rather than pretty some things will never alter. The classic and timeless details that speak style without any effort whatsoever. Such is the case of watches. Sure, they get their nip and tuck from the sartorial creators, and we love classic pieces as much as trendy ones, but the fact of the matter remains that watches in all shapes and sizes will always be the best accessory a man can wear.
Well… debatable… but let’s just work with what we’ve got.
YES, today we are talking men and watches. Sigh. Swoon. Et all.
* I honestly sometimes think nothing is sexier than a man wearing a really great watch.
So, my beautiful men an boys let’s address the burning question: what watches to wear in 2017? These days ‘all is in’ in fashion, and watches are no exception so I’ll tell you more than what watches to wear, I’ll tell you the personal styles that each watch works for.
1.DAPPER. Think elegant, refined, business man sort of style. This is a man who’s always in a suit, or a button shirt and dressy pants with shoes and no socks, who has hidden tats and wears classic perfume.
A suit is usually complimented by a classic watch, in leather or metal belt, and usually a more minimal design.
2. COOL & CASUAL. These are the men that can do both: suit and tie but also tees and sweatpants. They usually wear chunky watch styles, or vintage pieces to go with their brown pants and blue casual shirts. They stick to classic with a twist of cool or trendy, they pick more sporty styles, black, masculine, that go really well with a more active lifestyle.
3. TRENDY & LAID BACK. This is for fashion lovers and adventurers. The wooden watches are a massive trend in fashion for the past few years, and they’re the perfect marriage between amazing design and Eco-friendly fashion.
The men who pick them know good style, know how to dress well, know good music, good food, are calm and appreciate tasteful details.
A wooden watch is sort of like a statement and looks incredibly cool paired with casual shirts and jeans, sweaters, t-shirts and more laid back outfits. BUT if the guy has a great style he’ll know how to wear a wooden watch with a suit, because wooden watches are so well made, handcrafted, and beautifully executed, and come in so many designs they are really the icing on the cake.
