Matching A Watch To Your Outfit

What makes us more distinctive?

Since we wear limited jewelry, a watch is an expression of personality. The best wristwatches are simple, versatile, sophisticated and classic.

Most people prefer to own more than one watch so they could match the appropriate timepiece to complement the outfit.

Actually matching your watch to your outfit is not as difficult as it seems, once you know what to look out for.

First, take a look at your outfit. You need to categorize the style you should match, is it sporty, casual, dressy casual, formal?

Next, check out your watch selection. Evaluate the following elements when trying to decide if a particular watch leans more toward casual or formal end of the spectrum.

Watch case material and size. This is probably obvious: if the case—the main “body” that houses the movement—is a precious metal (yellow or white gold, platinum) or mimics a precious metal, there’s a good chance your watch is more on the formal side. If it’s made from steel, plastic, or other materials (ceramic, titanium, carbon fiber, etc.), it’s most likely not a formal watch.

Watch dial. Is the dial elegant and simple, or does it have multiple functions and complications? Those should be concluded in your consideration.

Watch strap. Worn-in leather looks better with jeans than it does with a suit. Thicker, bulkier straps are better with casual outfits as well. Glossy, slim, and thin leather bands are better with formal attire, and don’t pair as easily with denim and other casual clothes.


If you’re looking for a versatile alternative that can work well with a number of outfits, consider buying a simple watch with a leather or mesh strap and uncomplicated dial.

Watches should be matches to your figure. Thin people can go with slim watches, while bigger person could carry watches that have boxier and robust watch faces.

For the best time, pick up a watch to decorate yourself well.
