Accessorizing With Watches

For some women, a standard leather or metal band watch is too masculine. Although such watches have long been unisex, those looking for something feminine go for a detailed watch face. Even though watch faces on these standard designs can’t separate from the bands, feminine details are added to the faces to give them more feminine character. Some options include colored watch faces, as well as those with a patterned or rhinestone edge. Pairing such a face with a basic leather or metal band gives a classic design a slight feminine touch that doesn’t appear ostentatious or gaudy.

The other option for accessorizing with your watch is to wear a watch bracelet style. For women, these watches are designed like metal cuffs, bangles, or charm bracelets, and all have a face added. For the former two, one option for matching your watch to your outfit is to use a series of interchangeable bands or faces. A standard gold or silver face can be paired with a number of patterned bands made from metal, plastic, enamel, or beads that attach to the sides of the watch face. The opposite is to have a solid color band made from one of these materials with a series of decorative watch faces that slide on and off.
