Whenever you need to wear an outfit and dress up, an important part of that outfit would be your accessories to compliment your attire. No matter what age you are, the best accessory you can get as a guy is a watch. Whether it’s a three-piece suit you’re wearing to work, a black tie party you need to attend, or just chill at the beach, there is sure to be a watch that’s meant for that occasion. But choosing them can be a bit tricky as watches never really come with a label telling the wearer about the kind of occasion they are meant for. It’s up to you to decide that. Well, here’s an essential guide to help ensure that you make the right decision every time.
Casual Watches for everyday outfits
Some people just like the comfort a watch gives on your wrist and prefer to wear it even without an event. In such cases, you can go with either digital or analog and rock them with fancy or funky straps, based on your preference and your outfit. A denim strap goes well with a T-Shirt and jeans while metal suits buttoned down shirts. For these watches, make sure that they are durable enough to endure the wear and tear of your everyday life without breaking or malfunctioning. Also a good idea would be to buy a watch for daily wear with a really good warrantee. Even a smartwatch like the fossil Q or Moto 360 would be a great idea.
Here’s where it gets fun. You can’t really wear a watch with a denim strap to work (unless you you’re an entrepreneur), so be sure to pick a watch that defines responsibility. Wearing a classy watch to work shows that you’re a man of taste and are concerned with punctuality. While luxury watches are acceptable, it’s better to leave them for special black tie events. You can check out brands like SevenFriday for a perfect work watch that’s also durable enough to withstand basic wear and tear you may encounter during your commute. Smartwatches would be okay, if they look formal enough with a round dial and a metal band.
For the more black tie events, you can go all out with your Rolex or Omega and catch the spotlight, though just make sure that the watch goes well with your attire. Chrome watches go especially well with the classic black and white attire.
Now that you know how to pick the right watch for any event, you can confidently use and build your watch collection based on the type of lifestyle you live and ensure that in every situation, you will have the right watch.
