Style On: 5 Watches to Invest in Now

Launch Slideshow

In my last blog, I covered essential pieces of colorful jewelry that you could utilize to update your spring wardrobe. Now I am going to focus on essential intricate pieces that you can buy now and will certainly love forever: watches.

Purchasing a timepiece is something that every single woman must consider. Not only do watches make a statement but they also play that oh-so-important role of telling us what time in the day it is. How much more chic is it to look down at your Dior watch and then pull your cell phone out of your new oversized hobo bag?

When selecting the perfect timepiece I suggest staying neutral in color as you do want this piece to be something you can wear for years to come. Selecting a fussy color will only make you more particular about wearing the watch over and over. And lets face it, if you are going to be spending major cash on something, you want to be able to wear it as frequently as possible.

I recommend purchasing a bright white watch with a face the can catch the attention of any bystander. White is such a versatile, easy color to mix that you will get mileage out of your watch and it will look great mixed with your other baubles. You can’t get much better then that!
